High Quality Food List

Flexible Dieting is structured so that you can enjoy some of the foods you enjoy on a daily basis. You will need to be aware of what you are eating and how you dine out. I don’t like to tell people what they have to eat but it helps to see the structure so I will write a blanket food idea format for you. There are no off limit food but be careful about your macro goal allowance!

Please take a look at some of the food options below for the first couple weeks you can use this list. Then I would like for you to be able to figure out where you can replace certain foods with ones that you really enjoy with the Flex list! Let me know if there’s any food that you do not like I usually create a blanket template for you so that your macronutrients add up to the same numbers that I would like you at for your first 2 to 3 weeks

You do not have to eat any food you do not like. The flexible dining plan allows you to enjoy the things that you really like and fit it into your daily macronutrients. This food list really helps for planning. If you have other foods that you would like to incorporate into the plan as you start to understand where to manipulate you can go ahead and replace the foods on the list. Use along with the COMPLETE BOOK of FOOD COUNTS for accuracy. The logging will get easier as the weeks go by! There are thousands of foods so please add anything you would like.
