Easy IIFYM Calculator
Create Your IIFYM Diet Plan in 3 Minutes
As you probably know, the IIFYM diet can be a simple approach to fat loss and muscle gain. But there’s one problem – how do you know what your macros should be?
Most IIFYM calculators are hard to use. Or they just spit out random macros in exchange for your email address. 😒
That’s why I made an easy to use IIFYM calculator. You’ll get truly personalized macros to help you burn fat and build muscle.
In case you’re just starting out, IIFYM stands for If It Fits Your Macros. And it’s a dietary strategy in which you eat certain amounts carbohydrates, fat, and protein each day.
The idea is that if you hit your macro targets, you can transform your body. Of course, nutrition is more complex than that, but IIFYM does have benefits.
First, the number one benefit of IIFYM is simplicity. All you really have to do is count macros.
Second, and the real reason IIFYM works, is calorie balance. Each gram of carbs, fat, and protein has a set number of calories. By hitting your macros, you’re also controlling your calorie intake.
Lastly, the habit of counting macros builds other healthy eating habits. You start paying more attention to the foods you eat.
Limitations of IIFYM
While IIFYM can work, it is not a substitute for healthy food choices. In other words, you can’t eat pizza and donuts every day and expect to transform your body.
How the IIFYM Calculator Works
It’s important to realize that your macros depend on your calorie target. And your calorie target is dictated by your metabolic rate and your activity.
A Smarter Approach to Metabolic Rate
For that reason, I calculate your BMR (base metabolic rate) as accurately as possible. First, by finding your body composition with a fun slider and picture.
Then I adjust for your personal body type. No other IIFYM calculator I’ve seen takes your body type into account in this way.
Calories Adjust with Your Activity
Next, I calculate your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) based on your activity level.
First, you tell me how active you are in your everyday life. As well as your exercise habits.
In this way, I find out how many calories you burn on days you workout as well as days you don’t.
Finding Macros From Calories
All that’s left is to convert from calories to macros.
Your macronutrient ratio depends on your fitness goal. So, you choose whether you want to burn fat, build muscle, or do a little of both (recomposition).
Finally, we arrive at your ideal macro targets for transforming your body.
