Nutrition is extremely complicated, but it doesn’t have to be…
This past weekend I did a Q&A at Orange Theory Fitness for an amazing community of people. They had lots of questions which was great for me because sometimes people can be shy. I wanted to take some time today to share some of my thoughts after talking to 40+ people.
By the way, if you don’t like reading then just click the link below to watch the seminar. 😉
First off, here were some of the questions / topics presented:
- Calories in vs calories out
- Eating late at night
- Pre / post workout nutrition
- Intermittent fasting
- Meal prep
Nutrition Information Overload
Honestly, this list could keep going. But, for the sake of this article, I’m going to save some space! There were tons of great questions! But, there was one common theme that I saw with so many people. Two words, INFORMATION OVERLOAD.
You see, there is so much information out there these days. Honestly, most people are confused. Most people are overwhelmed when it comes to nutrition. Each and every one of these people had been influenced throughout their life by different diets, people, experiences, etc.
I honestly felt like we cleared up A LOT of confusion and created a lot of clarity around what really matters. One thing I like to talk about quite a bit is the concept of the big rocks. You see, the big rocks are the things in your life that really matter when it comes to your nutrition and lifestyle habits.
Examples of big rocks are things like sleep, nutrition, hydration, movement, recovery, etc.
Analysis by Paralysis
Because of the overabundance of information on the internet, most people don’t know what to do. ANALYSIS BY PARALYSIS is essentially what happens to most or there are those people that start and stop, second-guessing themselves along the way. For most diets, there are rules. Do this or do that, this is good or this is bad, this food represents this many points, etc. The list could go on forever, but the reality is that any diet can work.
The real question is can that diet work forever? For most, that answer is no.
You are a unique individual. There is literally no one else on earth that has your same DNA. Your wants and needs are important and they need to be prioritized. So instead of trying to follow a diet, why don’t you just build the “diet” and lifestyle that you want to live for the rest of your life!?
You have the power to change…
You deserve to feel great!
You deserve to look amazing!
You deserve to perform well in and out of the gym!
There’s literally nothing holding you back.
Stop contemplating, take action on the ONE THING that you need to improve the most!
I’m cheering for you!
