There is so much diet and fitness misinformation in the web-o-sphere that it’s difficult to know what advice is worth listening to and what isn’t. Most diet theories at first glance sound plausible and it’s easy to start worrying that you’re not doing the right thing.
In all the time I have spent teaching women how to lose weight and get in shape the most consistent stumbling block has been the tendency to overcomplicate things, but this is hardly their fault. It is primarily due to all the misinformation that is out there.
– John Barban
- Macronutrients (carbs, protein, fat)
- Good vs Bad foods and how it’s a false dichotomy
- How often you should check your measurements and weight (if at all)
- Gender differences in diet and metabolism – sometimes you and me just can’t do the same things
- Cardio – should you do it and when
- Metabolic slow down – does it happen, if so how?
- Goal Hijacking – how many trainers and fitness ‘experts’ steer you away from your original goal
- Supplements – can/should I take them, if so which ones and what can they do?
- and all kinds of other things I’ve learned for working with past successful venus’s.
