I have met people who have lost over 40lbs from fasting every other 24 hours. I have met people who have lost over 100lbs from flexible dieting. I have met people who have earned their dream body through keto. I have met vegan bodybuilders. There are some who feel macros make them anxious. Some can successfully eat their version of “clean” or “healthy.”
All of these different techniques worked for all of these different people. The only thing I have against these different tactics is that every last one of them wants you to follow in their footsteps. All of them have amazing testimonials, all of them promise excellent results, and all of them believe they are the best method of dieting. This is the issue.
I don’t care if flexible dieting does, or does not work for you, or if you fast every other day. Vegan, keto, paleo—I truly don’t care about your method. All I care about is that you are doing what works best for you, because you have learned through trial and error that the method you have chosen is your best option. Don’t listen to anyone else—and if you do, hear everyone out from all sides. .
We need to remember that diet and exercise is not a “generalized” field. This is an N=1 field: you are an individual data point—not the average. Every one of these methods will work: but only one or two will be the best for you. And you know who is the ONLY person who can decide that for you? That’s right...it’s you. #freeyourinnerathlete
