Episode 39 - Fad Diets Are Dumb Diets
The Doctors Paro will equally make you laugh and ruffle your feathers with this episode about diets. Listen..... we've been working on figuring out the truths about nutrition for weight loss, body composition and overall health. We've fallen into SO MANY "fitness and wellness" traps. After lots of reading and trial and error - we've come to understand a lot.We are in no way dietitians or nutritionists. But the truths we speak of here are backed in nutrition science - no gimmicks. And spoiler alert - the way to achieve the goals most people have when searching for a diet is not sexy or flashy. It's boring and takes way more time then we want it to.Episode Takeaways:Brief Review of Episode 13 Food is Fuel.The Pyramid of Importance.If A Diet Requires You To Buy A Bunch Of Shit, Don't Trust It.If A Diet Promises Fast Results, Don't Trust It.What Are The Reasonable Expectations?Common Diets And Why They Work But Aren't Magic.
