diet Diet DIET


Would you know why I don't talk about diets, because i'm not a dietitian. It's really that simple, that's not my field of expertise. I know trainers act like dietitians but we study the body not cells, gut health, malnutrition, disease related treatment, etc. That being said I have worked with a dietitian and I do read lots of scientific studies. Anytime the dietitian I worked with was asked about diet (keto, low carb, paleo, etc) she would always respond with moderation. Eat in moderation, that is the most sustainable way to eat. All the fad diets that cut out whole food groups aren't sustainable life long. You are strict and then you fall off and that's the cycle that most people are on. So that's the first piece of advice is moderation don't just go wild eating, I know something everyone knows and people just don't do. Next what does science say about eating and if your all about meat just stop reading. Science says eat more fruits and vegetables. I know what you are thinking, you can't build muscle eating fruits and vegetables not enough protein. Well science has also shown that's wrong or maybe misleading. You can get enough protein on a plant based diet, you just have to eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. This has the added benefit of giving you more fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants all good things. I'm not even advocating being a vegetarian, i'm simply saying eat more vegetables and eat less meat. Which will not only give you better internal health, but also cause you to lose weight without sacrificing the ability to gain muscle. That is the whole name of the diet game sustainable, life long weight loss. No more roller coaster diets, no more fad diets, no more giving up food you love to lose weight. Just two simple rules eat in moderation, eat more fruits and vegetables. Do that along with moving more and your weight lose goals will become lots less challenging. Until next time keep it RAW
