So you’ve decided to lose weight! Or gain muscle! Or just get healthier! That’s GREAT! But you might asking the first question that comes to mind when people think of such admirable goals: What’s the best exercise? And intuitively I think most people believe: there is no one best exercise. It depends on a bunch of factors. How fit you are, what you want to achieve, how much time you have, do you have access to a gym, equipment, coaches and so on.
Quick, name me the MOST important component of success for losing weight, gaining muscle or energy, or even managing a health condition. Did you say EXERCISE? WRONG! Nutrition is responsible for 70-90% of your success. Most people think it’s exercise, and obsess about finding the perfect program, or just doing more and more. Then they wonder why they’re not getting results. In my experience, it’s the nutrition! But there are a couple of challenges here. The first is UTTER CONFUSION when trying to decide what’s best. With so many diets out there: Atkins, Mediterranean, French, Paleo… all claiming failures and successes, how do you choose?
