What questions do you ask yourself before starting a training program or a diet❓

More importantly where do you look for those answers and how do you validate the answers you get⁉️
When it comes to building muscle and losing fat, there are many workout programs and diets that can work. In the end it comes down to the individual and what fits into their current lifestyle best.
What works best, and why it works best are two questions that drive a lot of the exercise science research. 🔹
As we become more advanced in the health industry or gives more reason for science to conduct research on what works best for the human body.
And although Science is very accurate and usually testing is done in controlled setting aimed towards benefiting specific group of people. IT IS STILL NOT 100% SET IN STONE when new research comes out. 🔹
An example of what I mean by this is take creatine, a well studied supplement for strength gains. Also has shown to improve cognitive decline and recently claiming to improve testosterone levels...
Most of those studies if not all of them can be argued by another scientist or Joe blow on how they were conducted and how results can differ based on so many uncontrollable factors. So how can we 100% say that's true? 🔹
Uncontrollable factors such as, hereditary factors, genetic differences from person to person, environmental factors (air, place, time of year), psychological factors (emotions, person mental well being, personality differences)
So even with recent evidence coming out, you still want to be radically open minded and ask yourself, how does this effect me? More importantly validate your research!
Having this mindset, and taking a systemic approach when experimenting with different training and nutrition protocols, can help any individual find and develop a program that works best for them. 🔹
SUGAR. For all of the intricacies of nutrition, the practical the takeaways usually remain the same: keep it simple, use common sense (+ don’t be fear mongered by the daily mail xo.)⠀
So yes - fruit contains sugar. 🍓⠀
(They contains lots of vitamins, minerals and fibre which are cool for our health. They’re also pretty tasty.⠀
So they're a cool addition to your diet.)⠀
And yes - sweets contain sugar. 🍬⠀
(They don’t really offer us much else in the way of vitamins, minerals and fibre. But they’re also pretty tasty. So it’s a cool addition to your diet ~in moderation~, but not really something to prioritise.) ⠀
Rather than demonising certain foods and putting a ‘health halo’ on others - just remember (as @danprice_639pt so eloquently says) not every food needs to tick every weird metaphorical ‘health’ box. 💃💃💃 There’s room for all types of foods/strawberries in your diet.⠀
(Psa hands will likely be in all foods images until further notice because nails. Hope that’s o k)
