Hey Tyler what do you think about the IIFYM diet (followed by Layne Norton and a lot of other natty bodybuilders) the basic premise being you can fit different foods into your macros. It allows for a variety of foods to be eaten that would otherwise be considered bodybuilding-unfriendly, like bread and fruit.

Tyler - I've never really studied the IIFYM diet so I don't have an opinion about that. Your still going to have to eat healthy foods in order to fuel your body and get the most out of it. Since when was bread and fruit not bodybuilding friendly? I'm eating foods now that I never have and never thought I would be able to be in my all time best condition eating this way so don't think that you have to eat basic traditional bodybuilding meal plan.
Hey Tyler how important is it to embrace the journey to achieving your fitness goals? I think often times I get caught up in wanting everything NOW, what do you think about being patient?

Tyler - To me it's my everything...it's what makes me want to get out of bed every day and work hard. You can't get caught up in wanting everything now because it doesn't work like that. Bodybuilding is a marathon not a sprint. YOU HAVE TO BE PATIENT.
Tyler, have you ever had any type of cheat food during the week before you got to your cheat meal on saturday? Yesterday after my 5th meal, my sweet tooth got the best of me and i put down 6 low fat pop tarts. So should i not eat my cheat meal on saturday. Should i just proceed with my routine like normal and not worry about it? Thanks man.

Tyler - I have...this was before I really took my nutrition serious though. Go by how you feel and look if you want to take your cheat or not.
