What are some ways to have good diet consistent on the cheaper side. Not having to be too obsessive measuring calories and macros. Tasty food. Are there any like nutrition systems that require least willpower and can be integrated as automatic and easy.
Now I understand what you want is a simple and more effective way to diet, but while my diet is fun, it requires counting every macro as much as possible, which is why I can eat pizzas and burgers daily while reaching my goals, so if you have the willpower to do that, then search about IIFYM.
Other than that you can try intermittent fasting, high protein diets, or just download MyFitnessPal and make your life easier.
If you want to eat the food that you want while still being in decent shape, you have to count your macros; there’s no other way around it.
If you don’t want to count your macros, you’ll have to take a healthier approach to your diet and have an intuitive understanding of macros, which can’t really be developed without going through the macro counting phase.
This or what I do is I make low calorie homemade versions of my favorite foods. For example, I want pancakes? I make kino pancakes so filling for almost 5 hours and only 700 calories. Wanted a burger or a burrito bowl? I make my own and it’s around 900 calories.
A lot of resto and fast food places have so many calories in their foods because of the crazy amount of fat they put in their food (One gram of fat is 9 calories) and that’s why when you eat it’s very easy to overeat and not be in a calorie deficit (If your cutting).
For example, a baconator at wendys is 920 calories. This is small, not filling and not really good for your health. I could make the exact same burger but with nutrient dense foods, good macros and around 720 calories that would fill me up for 4 hour if not more.
