There is a ton of
confusing miss-leading stupid information online about nutrition. Let’s try to sort some things out. And as always, if you have an specific (or vague) questions… feel free to reach out to me at any time.
One of the current trends is Intermittent Fasting (IF). There are several ways to use IF:
- Skipping meals,
- Only eating during a 8 or 12 hour window,
- Fasting for an entire day etc.
There are some promising benefits (although nothing scientifically conclusive in humans), but if your goal is weight loss… a calorie deficit is still king. Can IF help? Sure… as long as you eat less calories during the day because you’re limited by time. But if you eat more than you need, you’ll still put on weight.
You can’t out-work a bad diet.
Exercise should be about getting stronger, faster, and more capable… not to negate last night’s cheesecake. And it’s really not worth all that extra effort.
Are you making these simple diet mistakes…
– Doing too much cardio?
– Not prepping your meals?
– Not tracking your calories or dropping them too quickly?
