|Hello! Recently altering my diet from keto! I just wasn’t having the results I wanted and figured no need to eat that fat if not! That being said I was hoping for some help! I have been doing some weight training lifting for a few weeks now…
Would someone be able to help me with a diet plan? Or idea or macros to follow?

|I love nutrition – the best nutrition plan that has given me phenomenal results is Whole Food plant based nutrition – this style of eating has turned my chronic health condition around. May I send you a private message to tell you about what I do & why it works?|
The eating style I use is If It Fits Your Macros (IIFYM). Basically you set your calories to your goal e.g. surplus/deficit then you adjust your macronutrients to a ratio which is best for you. The thing which is constant in everyone`s plan would be having a protein intake of between 0.8 – 1.45g depending on your goal. Carbs and fats can be in any ratio which makes the diet as pleasurable for you as possible. You could just see this as an opportunity to eat junk food so long as it satisfies your diet but your going to feel and perform a whole lot better if you keep it somewhat clean. I personally use a 80/20 rule, 80% clean foods and 20% not so clean foods. The fact that nothing is off the table makes this feel less like a diet. I`ve written an article on this on my blog which contains links to other posts on a breakdown of macros and explaining cutting and bulking. I`ll leave the link below if your interested. https://apfitnesssite.wordpress.com/…/abs-are-built-in…
|I totally agree IIFYM and the 80/20 rule is good too, basically 40% protein, 40% carbs, 20% fats. Not the unhealthy stuff, the lean stuff, green stuff is good for you, very good, but you won’t be able to eat enough realistically if you just go veggie without a lot of dedication , lean meat, plenty of veg and salad. If you wanna gain eat just a little more calories than you need to maintain same weight. Prepare easy meal plans too… I’ll come back with an example video|
