If there’s one thing I’ve noticed over the past 18+ months of strict dieting and training, it’s that when it comes to making dietary choices, most people just plain suck at it and consequently make life ridiculously and unnecessarily hard for themselves.
Whether it’s your average glutton who would rather ignore their rapidly expanding waist line completely as they salivate over their online order of Dominoes pizza, or the self-proclaimed “gym junkie” who worships dogmatic, mainstream dieting advice and lives on weight watchers bars and boost juice smoothies, and spends more time and effort buying fitness branded clothing and posting it on Instagram than doing real research and finding out what is going to produce results.
The end result is that a lot of people are suffer through being stuck in shitty bodies when fixing the problem is something that is quite simple to do, on the condition that they have the right knowledge.
So, in this post I am going to present some of the idiotic, yet not uncommon mistakes I witness both in the people around me and online which constantly serves as a reminder that just because I find it effortlessly simple to stay in shape and make steady progress with strength-building and fat-loss, most people are about as competent at looking after their body as most girls who frequent Lorna Jane are at not being irritating on social media.
The following advice mostly goes against the general consensus (the same consensus that has produced the sea of overweight and depressed individuals swarming every public place of the first world), and I want to make it known that this advice is for people who actually make decisions based on their own rational judgement, without looking to daddy government, a mainstream news report or the dogmatic and over-zealous opinions of random fatties they are exposed to daily to do their thinking for them.
