It happens all the time. Someone will ask me a fitness question and I will start to tell them what is the answer from a fitness professionals point of few. At that point some people become Fitness Experts magically. People are going to do what they want but if you want the truth ask a fitness professional that knows. Listen Up here… Just because someone loses 50lbs on the green bean diet does not mean they are more fit or more healthy.
Heck if you run for a day straight and do not eat anything you will lose weight (This is not my advice so DONT DO IT. This is just to make a point). In any weight loss effort your goal is to lose fat not muscle and it is definitely not to starve yourself!!
People will talk in terms of what they have either done, or are going to do. COME ON if you are not a fitness expert and if you want to learn the truth let the experts help. Fitness people want to help they really do it is in their blood. Take advice when the person is an expert. It is amazing how people will take advice from Uncle Joe, Aunt May, Grandma Ethel, Grandpa Joe, or any other person on the street. Always question the source and ask “is what they are telling me fundamental for long term fitness and health or just a quick weight loss gimmick?”
To your fitness success,
