My inbox gets flooded with diet & fitness questions asking “should I do this” or “should I do that” and as much as I’d love to give a concrete answer, the answer is almost always: it depends.
It’s very rare in this industry that something is definitive. Even something as (in my opinion) basic as a caloric deficit being the driving force behind weight loss can’t be agreed upon universally.
It’s no wonder people get so confused looking for answers. One person will swear that Keto changed their life, another person will verbally poop all over that diet. One person will hit the gym 3 times per week doing full body workouts, another person will go 6 times every week doing single body part workouts. Who’s right? Everyone. And no one.
At the end of the day, you need to find these answers for yourself. Maybe that means doing some experimenting, or maybe that means hiring a coach to help guide you. But if you rely solely on Instagram or documentaries to provide you answers, you’re going to find yourself very, very confused and conflicted.
There are no concrete answers here. What’s “best” for one person isn’t going to be what’s best for you- and that’s okay. It’s up to you to make those decisions for yourself based on YOUR life.
And if anyone ever claims to have all the answers for you, turn and hit ‘em a quote from the acclaimed poet, Kelly Clarkson. ‘Cause baby you don’t know a thing about me.
