Nutrition Is A Minefield

    Nutrition can be a minefield of false claims, buzz words, personal paradigms and seemingly contradictory science. Yet, if we want our clients to live healthy, energetic lives, it’s something we all need to know.

    As a coach, understanding nutrition is vital if we want to be successful with our clients. I hate how common the phrase ‘you can’t out-train a bad diet’ is, but it’s 100% true.

    The question is, what does a good diet look like?

    Is the Energy Balance paradigm correct? Or is the Hormone paradigm the one you should follow?

    Should everyone be counting calories? Do people of the same size/age/sex/goal require the same amount?

    The contradictions and the confusion surrounding what good nutrition looks like is second to none. It’s the most talked about aspect of health and also the most misunderstood.
