How To Stay Motivated

One of the obstacles anyone has to face when it comes to attaining their ideal body, is losing motivation. Sometimes stress in our life makes us stumble and not want to get up. Other times, certain situations causes us to become down and depress, not having the desire or the will to do the things we once enjoyed doing. Not only that, but it prevents us from meeting our daily activities when it comes to our individual fitness goals. When one is down and depressed, the last thing they want to do is go to the gym or prepare a protein shake or that particular meal for the day. The feeling of bewilderment just overcomes them and they are just overwhelmed with negative emotions. Emotions aren’t the only things that demotivates us from succeeding or acquiring the physique that we want. Sometimes we find that our gains aren’t coming fast enough, or that we see someone else losing weight quicker or gaining muscle faster. I am sure you have at least seen or heard of someone who could eat absolutely anything they want to from burgers from fast food joints toice cream, cake, cookies, etc., and not hinder their gains what so ever. Either they keep building muscle while you’re there struggle to get a 1 lb of muscle, or they are losing weight and you’re there running on the treadmill for hours, certain amount of times per week and can’t even lose that extra 10 lbs you’ve been trying[…]

But, we as people have a sweet tooth. We like our soft drinks, our sweet juices, etc. Drinking only slightly flavored water, or water only, sometimes isn’t always a desirable option, especially out at events, etc. Maybe at a restaurant, you would like to have some type of flavored drink, that is conducive to keeping to your diet.

IIFYM

If it fits my what? If it fits your macros. Remember those macronutrients that I had spoken about, some time ago; carbs, proteins and fats? Well this eating protocol basically tells you, that once something fits your macros, you can eat it! Basically, if you’ve consumed all your daily macros; 1 g of protein per LBM, 2 g of carbs per lb and 90 grams of fat (depending on if you’re on a cut or bulk and how much you’ve ganished for your fat distributions), but you still have more calories to meet your daily intake, you can fit the rest of those calories with anything you want. Some people even consume ice cream, pizza, cake, whatever it may be. Once it is fitting your macros; carbs, fats or proteins, and supplementing on it to make 1.5 g of protein or 2.5 of carbs, then you can eat it! Got 50 more grams of fat to consume to get to 150 grams? Or 30? Then you can eat whatever it is you want, to fill in those numbers.
