In my previous life as a clothing designer, I was having trouble figuring out what people would want in workout clothes. A very wise friend sternly told me, "You stop caring about what other people think or ask you to create. You figure out what you do best and you do You." We’re continually bombarded by so much information. In the fitness industry, it's usually about the best way to lose tummy fat, increase strength, or to get ripped, etc. But is there really "the best" way to do anything when we are all such unique individuals?
I cringe when a bodybuilding/competition coach gives someone who simply wants to lose some weight due to a recently diagnosed heart condition a stringent diet designed for bodybuilders that can easily ruin someone's metabolic function.
We are all very different; there is no one solution for all. Without a proper assessment of an individual's health, it’s downright irresponsible to give someone a one-size-fits-all menu.
If you have a goal in fitness - weight loss, muscle building, simply to be healthy, to run longer, etc - gather information from reputable sources with critical mind and determine what works for you. How would your body respond? Is this plan maintainable given your work/family/social schedule? Most importantly, does this it cater to the goal you have?
Then once you make that intelligent decision, keep yourself up-to-date with reputable information, but ignore the noise of so-called experts, especially that unsolicited advice from a random Joe/Jane. Set your sight on achieving your goal(s), and You Do You.
