What does the word "diet" mean to the average person looking to lose weight in 2017?
And why when we have more gyms, more personal trainers and more free access to information are people continuing to become more over weight and more unhealthy.
The word diet to your average person now means restrict, restrict massively, not allowed, cant have, good food bad food, inflict suffering and so much more nonsense, none of which is actually true. There is no foods you cant have when putting yourself on any diet, yes you have cut down on what you are eating now, see how i said cut down, cut back a little, not remove, sort of goes against all the nonsense ya keep reading on social media, even more frightening is the fact that a lot of this rubbish is written by the very people that people that you are going to for help and paying them for that help - personal trainers.
Personal trainers selling detox kits, telling you that you must detox before starting any diet, that you must reset your insulin by removing all carbohydrates - yes this rubbish is actually true and a commercial gym near me actually sell this methodology, all of which is utter rubbish, how anybody can call themselves a fitness professional whilst knowing that they are lying to the people that are actually paying them money to help them, its a disgrace and it needs addressing, we need to stop been quiet about this nonsense and call it like it is, its BS.
We have people that are massively over weight, petrified to go any where near a gym and when they do your going to take them and tell them that they have to completely eat at the other end of the spectrum from where they are now and you think that's going to work for them ?
Here is some advice for ya for free, make sense of where they are now, work with where they are now, help them cut back a little with what they eating now, not radically overhaul anything whilst making it completely unsustainable for them, after all, these people are coming to you for help, help with problems that's going to take time to put right, stop trying to force quick fixes on people, and certainly stop fleecing them of money on detox kits, i know and you probably know, at least you should know, its utter BS.
