Hello you little gem

A big part of fitness is obviously how you eat.  Whether you do clean eating, weight watchers, paleo, calorie counting or flexible dieting,  your diet will be most of what determines your results. 
Personally I do IIFYM or If It Fits Your Macros.  This diet (more of a lifestyle) requires you to track your protein,  fat, carbs and fiber.  In order to meet my requirements I eat mostly healthy but I do enjoy non healthy splurges with NO GUILT.
