“Extremely easy to follow and very informative. I was looking for something to get me started on my fitness journey and couldn’t be happier I found this book. Although it’s not long, it’s packed with great information that can help anyone no matter what their goals are and the best part is it’s not overly dense with information to the point where you need to take a break cause your head hurts. I would recommend it to anybody who wants to learn the basic sciences behind fat loss and muscle gain/meal structuring. Definitely a satisfied customer.”

You’ve Been Lied To (And So Have I)

The general population has been led to believe that by eliminating certain foods from your diet, you’ll finally be able to see the results you’ve been struggling to get.

Getting Lean, losing weight, building muscle… It’s not as complicated as the fitness industry wants you to believe.

This book is the answer.

Not too long ago, everyone believed that eating fat was the cause of our weight gain… so we eliminated it from our diets.

Nowadays, everyone believes that eating carbs is the cause of our weight gain… so we’re eliminating it from our diets.

It’s gotten so crazy that almost everything has been seen as “unhealthy” at some point in time. 

Soon we’ll just be eating bowls of nothing.

Some fitness “gurus” I follow also hopped on the “low-carb” train, and it disappoints me.

They want to capitalize on the fears of people to make a quick buck while the iron’s hot.

Are you really going to give up carbs forever? I know I couldn’t…

The fastest success I’ve ever had with weight loss was giving up carbs.

Each meal consisted of:

  • Chicken Breast or Turkey Breast
  • Broccoli and Carrots
  • Brown Rice (once a week)

Sad. Just Sad.

Guess what happened when I finished my diet and reintroduced carbs back into my life?


So why do you think I gained all the weight back as soon as I had carbs again?


Diets that eliminate foods entirely from your everyday life are not sustainable.

And I’m guilty of following unsustainable diets for the better part two years.

I guess this is a good time for a quick introduction.

My name is Christian Pinedo

This is my most recent physique update of my cut in 2020.

I’ve lost 50 pounds throughout my fitness journey… but not without 2 years of trial and error first.

I’ve tried just about every diet you can name, and I know what works and what doesn’t.

Here’s my best advice:

Avoid diets that are NOT sustainable!

Don’t settle for a diet structure that you can’t continue forever.

If you’re actually looking to be healthy and lean for life (and not just for one summer), then you need to follow a diet that allows for that.

By following IIFYM, you DON’T have to:

  • eliminate carbs
  • eliminate fats
  • eliminate rice
  • eliminate butter
  • eliminate ANYTHING.

Gone are the days of following a boring meal plan. IIFYM allows you to eat your favorite foods while transforming your body.

Eating 100% junk food isn’t what IIFYM is about.

IIFYM is simply about giving people flexibility when it comes to their food choices.

This flexibility does include treating yourself, and it can be done daily if setup correctly.

Where things go wrong (usually with beginners) is when people take IIFYM to the extreme, eating junk food because it “fits their macros.”

In actuality, eating an all-out junk diet is extremely unhealthy and impedes your weight loss or bodybuilding goals.

The majority of people who practice IIFYM are educated dieters who understand nutrition. 

Truly understanding and practicing IIFYM entails understanding the basics of macronutrients. 

My goal with this book is to have you join the ranks of the educated IIFYM community.

  • Imagine… just 12 weeks from now… being comfortable with taking your shirt off
  • Imagine… just 12 weeks from now… being comfortable wearing your bikini at the beach
  • Imagine being able to actually ENJOY your diet!

Frequently Asked Questions About the Book

What is IIFYM and What Does it Mean?

IIFYM (Macro diet or flexible dieting as some call it) is a method, or style, of dieting used to improve body composition by tracking your macronutrients (macros). IIFYM stands for “If It Fits Your Macros.”

“If It Fits Your Macros” allows people to lose or gain weight without having to eat clean 100% of the time, and sustain that weight loss enjoyably.

Does IIFYM Work?

IIFYM: If it fits your macros works because it follows the scientific laws of energy balance. The method of dieting does not really matter because if you are in a calorie deficit, you will lose weight. This means that you could technically follow any diet for fat loss as long as you are in a calorie deficit.

However, if you want to lose weight, without giving up your favorite foods, then you need to make sure the foods that you love fit your macros. This is why it’s called IIFYM. Your foods or meals are only allowed if it fits in your macros.

Will You Show Me How to Create My Own Meal Plan?

Yes. It includes 3 flexible dieting meal plans. They all follow if it fit your macros and I also include a complete, comprehensive guide on how to set your own custom meal plan
