If there is one thing that I have learnt about fitness it's that there are so many opinions and a lot more quick fixes. I try to filter all the crap. I block advertisements on FB and follow people with a sound nutritional science background but nothing can stop people I know talking to me about their latest get skinny quick diet or health craze.
I have come to realise that despite my advice of eating a balanced diet and exercise will get them to where they want to be they still do what they want ... because my suggestions are SO unsexy. It is so much easier to eat a magic fruit and exercise 10 minutes a day with the latest gadget while wearing a power band and special pants that burn fat.
Yeah, and gullible has been taken out of the dictionary.
