You know, the fact that I even have to talk about this makes me a bit angry. The fitness and health industry is rife with gimmicks. There is so much marketing propaganda and misinformation out there, it’s no wonder people get fed up when nothing is working and they keep getting fatter. But let not your heart be troubled, dear listener, if this is you.
I may not have the cameras, crash test dummies, the explosives or the glorious mustache, but today, I’m going to be busting some widely accepted myths about fitness and nutrition, and I’ll be using science to do it. So settle in and prepare to learn what really works when the goal is to achieve your best body.
Today, we’ll discuss:
- Can’t seem to shake that stubborn belly fat? Perhaps you should do more crunches. Especially if you want to stay fat, and possibly injured. Let’s talk myths concerning core workouts ... (5:10)
- Most personal trainers get this all wrong, but this is what your core is actually designed for (7:15)
- “The best way to ensure you get fat is to eat before bed.” That’s a HUGE lie. It’s actually the best time to eat, and eat heartily. Here’s why (8:54)
- It’s conclusive! Definitive research shows diets don’t work and will leave you actually fatter (11:24)
If you’re judging the quality of your workout by how sore you feel afterward, you are setting yourself up for failing BIG (11:50)
More myths to bust ...
Next time we’ll continue on our quest to decipher tradition versus truth. The two myths I’m going to slay in the next podcast are probably the most widely held and ultimately the most destructive to people’s fitness and health goals. Tune in to be sure you aren’t buying in to these myths.
