What is flexible dieting and why does this program practice it?
With flexible dieting, no foods are off-limits. It allows you to keep up a positive association with the foods you eat and love because you can still make room for them in your diet.
Moreover, flexible dieting is a system for keeping track of the relative energy content of the foods you’re eating. While different foods have different energy breakdowns, food is just a physical form of energy. This is like a level up from counting calories. For example, instead of just aiming to eat 1800 calories per day, flexible dieting helps you keep track of where exactly those calories are coming from in terms of protein, carbs, fats, and other micronutrients.
