I think one of the smarter things that skeen has ever said is that natty bodybuilding is almost pointless.

How much stock do you guys put into IIFYM?

I've been eating "clean" on this cut, whatever the fuck that means, fresh fruits and veggies, fresh meat, no fast food, no shit that comes ready to eat out of a box, etc, etc.

Last night after lifting I was just TOO lazy to cook, and I hit all my macros on point, but it came in the form of lean pockets, quest bars, mac and cheese and other odds and ends.

What really is the difference?

There's more to food than just macros.

sodium, general well being from not eating crap, micronutrients, calorie density wrt satiety.

eating shit to fit your macros is fine once in a while but it's much "better" to eat clean.

Do that for a month and see how you feel.  In addition to all the vitamins we've identified as necessary, there's a bunch of shit in food that nutritionists don't really understand but are pretty sure play important roles in a lot of bodily functions i.e. lycopene

Yeah, I understand micronutrients, and also understand how some foods are digested better, and do different things in your body. For the former you could take vitamins, for the latter...meh.

I know personally I would feel like garbage if my diet consisted of quest bars and lean pockets for more than a few day, but if it works for you, why not

Goaded by “the silence of the yams,” Mr. Pollan wants to help old-fashioned edibles fight back. So he has written “In Defense of Food,” a tough, witty, cogent rebuttal to the proposition that food can be reduced to its nutritional components without the loss of something essential. “We know how to break down a kernel of corn or grain of wheat into its chemical parts, but we have no idea how to put it back together again,” he writes.

In this lively, invaluable book — which grew out of an essay Mr. Pollan wrote for The New York Times Magazine, for which he is a contributing writer — he assails some of the most fundamental tenets of nutritionism: that food is simply the sum of its parts, that the effects of individual nutrients can be scientifically measured, that the primary purpose of eating is to maintain health, and that eating requires expert advice. Experts, he says, often do a better job of muddying these issues than of shedding light on them. And it serves their own purposes to create confusion. In his opinion the industry-financed branch of nutritional science is “remarkably reliable in its ability to find a health benefit in whatever food it has been commissioned to study.”

 

tl;dr we don't know enough about the human diet to figure it out, but we do know that eating stuff that isn't 'real food' makes people sick and that you can't create a diet based off macros + micronutrients and be healthy.

Quest bars good btw? Whats the best flavor to start with? I'm going to try and stick to my diet next week and I'm going to have to do it with easy fast food because I'll be working 12 hours a day. Last year I brought snickers bars.

The human body deserves so much better than Hot/Lean Pockets. I avoid them for that reason alone.

Yup.

I will say that I do use IIFYM to factor in my occasional cheat days.

If I can have that pizza/burger/Popeyes and still stay within my macros and caloric goals, I don't feel as guilty.

Vice is blocked here but if that's the dude that made a gross vitamin shake to subsist on, check in on him in a year or two and see how healthy he is.
