      Is it really hard to still enjoy ice cream, pizza, burgers, etc while on a cut? I know it would be much easier during a bulking phase, but I was wondering if you get your protein intake for the day from turkey, and then carbs from pizza or ice cream , is that relatively easy to do ?

      Not tough to do in moderation with a little foresight and planning. Just make it fit into your macros, ???, profit and enjoy.

      It's trivial to enjoy the foods you want on a cut. The hard part is refraining from eating the amounts you want.

      I only eat one meal a day, so it is very easy to fit in foods I love. If I have all of my day's calories in one sitting, I can eat just about any food I want.

      (It also helps me to not obsess over food)

      When you say moderation, would eating a scoop of B&J everyday , be considered "moderation" ? As opposed to just splurging out on a "cheat day"

      as long as your counting your macros and fitting them in to the overall calorie intake, you are good to go. given you are also hitting micronutrient intakes for the day as well. i mainly crave fats, so i'm always satisfied with my diet (i tend to eat higher fat and lower carb). eating some ground beef with taco seasoning, cheese, sour cream, and taco sauce on spinach leaves tastes great and helps me hit my macros/micros

      Once you reach your fat/protein intake, whether it will be from your "regular" foods, or from pizza and ice cream, your free do you what every you want with your remaining calories. Just make sure your getting your micronutrients as well

      I have been semi-strict on my diet, eating a lot of turkey, eggs, steamed veggies, chicken breast, whole wheat bread ( that is basically my entire diet lol) but I like to enjoy 3 scoops of B&J in the morning, because I don't have time to cook and I need the energy. I've lost about 9 pounds in 4 weeks, and I am gaining strength and it feels great that I am achieving all of this while enjoying the foods I love and eating anything I desire in moderation.
