Fitspo trends are not sustainable, they are short term, quick fixes that work but lead you down a long term battle with health and weight issues.Marizelle
With everyone getting back to #fitness and #exercise and following the latest #diet trends to get those #summerbodies. I thought it was fitting to remind you about what is true amongst all the BS on the internet.
A reminder from a qualified and registered Biokineticist:
👀Eating minimally is not optimal especially in the long run – if you want your metabolism to stay healthy you need to nourish your body with enough energy aka calories.
👀Drinking #coffee is not breakfast
👀Drinking water to curb your #appetite is not normal and neither is chewing gum all day to avoid eating – this can actually mess with your gut health
👀 #Intermittentfasting is NOT for everyone esp if you’re female, generally unwell or have hormonal issues
👀Carbs are not evil – they are fuel for your cells and your bodies prefered source of energy
👀Overtraining wrecks havoc on a body that already barely gets nourished – if you want to be exercising you need to feed your body especially if you want to maintain your metabolism and muscle mass
👀Detox teas and juice fasting is not what you ‘need’. seriously you dont need to detox, just cut out the crap.
👀”Trainers” who tell you, you have to burn 1000 #calories while training and only eat chicken and broccoli have to go – seriously its 2020 😳 go science abit please.
👀Sugar is not the same as cocaine, like wtf
👀All or nothing #mindsets, are not winning mindsets – you have to focus on balance all the pilars of health and wellness to be successful. (your perception of successful matters here)
👀 Having body fat is normal and #healthy and good for a healthy #hormonal profile. (the right amount of course)
👀 Ladies, not getting your #period is not okay!
👀Never underestimate the power of daily #habits, #movement, #sleep, #rest and eating a #balanced nourishing diet.
If this made you questions your latest fad or the latest trend on instagram, you need to speak to a professional.
