Round-Up: The 5 BEST Health and Fitness Articles I’ve Read This Week (May 2016)

I love to write, but some people (okay, A LOT of people) are way smarter than me and know a lot more things than I do.

I am constantly trying to take in more information, but my head is actually kind of small which leads me to believe that my brain only has so much capacity, which puts me at a disadvantage, and well, I just am not ever going to be the smartest person in the room. But i might be the most resourceful depending on who’s in the room, so here goes:

These are the 5 best on-bullshit, logical health and fitness articles i’ve read this week. Enjoy!

1. Superfoods List: The Best Foods That Burn Fat and Help You Lose Weight
IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK. PLEASE, give this one a read. My favorite quote from the article:

‘“Superfood” isn’t a scientific term. It’s not even a nutritional term. It’s a marketing term.’ – Jay

2. Are you sure you want that meal plan?

While I think there is a place for meal plans (meal plans that are used as a GUIDELINE, are flexible and not an end-all be-all that is), most of the time, they are exactly like this guy states. Some trainer telling their clients that if they eat these magical foods at magically spaced intervals throughout the day, they will magically see better results than anyone else.

3. Unneccessary Fitness Expenses

It’s true that there is a place for personal training, supplements, etc. But there are so many people who take advantage of this and try to sell people on things they don’t need, just to make a profit. This is a great quick read.

4. Top 10 Fitness Industry Charlatans

It’s important to take what “perceived experts” say with a grain of salt. Do your research and talk to people that are true scientists in their field. Most often, these are the people whose #1 priority is to sift through the bullshit and find the truth.

5. How Do I Know How Much Weight to Use In The Gym?

Shameless plug…but if I’m not writing things that I don’t think are the best, than why write at all? This is one of many approaches to getting stronger in the gym and it answers the common question: how much weight should i use in the gym? This should help you out.
