Nutrition is the most overlooked aspect in fitness. The bottom line is what you eat has a direct correlation on how you look, feel and perform. The problem with traditional fad diets is that they aren’t designed to work long term and often leave people in a state of starvation and calorie hoarding. They severely cut calories, eliminate as many foods as possible, and leave people feeling miserable. In addition, the restriction of so many foods causes cravings to build up, and binge eating follows. A diet only works if it is realistic and sustainable in the long term. This is why we promote and follow a flexible dietary approach that fits within your lifestyle, rather than have it dictate the way you live your life.
