In 2018, the depth at which one can source information on a given topic on the internet is never-ending. You can pretty much read material on any subject you are interested in with the simple click of a button / touch of a screen. This however can be a gift and a curse as you have to know where to look to find credible sources of information.
As passionate as I am about researching all things Health and Fitness related, it is understandable how the general public can become frustrated & confused by the constant stream of conflicting information available to them, especially when it comes to dieting and nutrition.
I feel a lot of the information out there is overly complicated for the sake of it & while I personally appreciate the detailed science heavy blog posts, I understand that some are hard to read, tend to be too technical at times and in some cases hold no actionable value to the reader.
So to help educate those of you that are interested, I have decided to adapt a short series of nutrition blogs taken from the Nikafit Members Only Facebook Group to boost your understanding of the basics of nutrition. It is written in an easily digestible format, starting from the ground up.
In it, we will touch on all the fundamental principles and information that EVERYONE should consider if they want to achieve & sustain their ideal body composition goal.
In this initial 4 part mini-series, we will give a broad overview of:
1. How all Diets work off one fundamental principle
2. Why most diets fail (restrictive eating)
3. The Clean eating fallacy & understanding the 1 fundamental principle to succeed
4. Are you a Weekday Warrior? (The real reason you never see progress)
So now that the introduction is out of the way let’s get into our first topic:
