Default Doug Miller on IIFYM

Doug Miller:

I can't even count how many emails I have received about IIFYM and "clean" eating in the last month. I really should do a video on my opinion here because its probably too long for a Facebook post. BUT I will say this here: Yes, you can eat poptarts, hohos, Ben and Jerry's, etc during contest prep and still get ripped. doesn't make you "cooler" than the guy eating "clean." I'm sick and tired of all of the posts lately bashing on people who CHOSE to eat "clean" because they like the way it makes them feel and perform. Next person who calls someone a BRO because he/she eats clean, I'm going to open fist slap LOL.

Also, just because you can get ripped by eating ding dongs, doesn't mean its ideal or optimal. I have seen it first and in hundreds of clients, "bro food" can help achieve a harder/granite looking physique. I like studies and science just as much as anyone, but I won't/can't point to single end all be all study showing if one method of dieting is better than the other. That doesn't mean I don't have an opinion. For me, when its contest prep time, say good bye to the processed junk. Occasionally in the growing season it is fine, and in fact I think it can be beneficial (for a number of reason) to eat some junk, but 90%+ of your food should be from non-processed "clean" food even when not dieting down (for general health and also performance reasons). I know this will probably ruffle some feathers and cause some bunched panties but this is just once man's opinion. There, I said it. Let the haters hate. (And just to be clear, I'm not bashing anyone's approach to dieting. I am just giving my opinion and in fact have a great deal of respect for some of the people out there who may disagree with this).
