2 words to spot an amateur fitness coach dressed up like a pro

Ask a question in regards to weight loss to 5 fitness coaches… and their answers will determine who you’re talking to.

Here’s what I mean.

WIth the constant rise of new fitness coaches coming out of nowhere, there should be a way to spot those who know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about… from those who just throw complicated terms like “insulin response” or “high glycemic index”.

To be specific, I’m talking about those who tell you (you should do X if you’re having Y)… like, ‘you should stop eating fast food if you want to lose weight’.

Even better, there’s also those who think they know it all and that the information cannot change (or get updated, if you will) and think that what they had to “back up” their position is still valid today.

This doesn’t affect the actual basic principles, of course, but…

when it comes to certain tips and advice for fat loss, many fitness coaches pretend to know it all.

That’s what I call being an amateur fitness coach dressed up like a pro.

But, what if you want to spot a real expert who has some sense of what you need to do?

Well, there are 2 words that every expert should say before giving you any advice.

These 2 words are: “It depends”.

The reason is pretty simple.

Because we don’t know what’s your current situation at all, what your goals are and what you’ve tried in the past (and why it didn’t work), we won’t share some cookie-cutter response to your specific problem.

It would be crazy for someone who knows giving a simple Y/N answer with an explanation without asking you some questions first.

That’s why experts say “It depends” in basically all their responses.

Now go ahead and see who you’re currently following and pay attention to the words they are using.

Many people go out there saying they are on a diet without paying attention to the real definition. To begin with, let’s explore the roots of the word diet. It comes from the greek diata, which means “a way of living” So this means that when you say “you’re on a diet”, in reality, you

Not all weight loss is created equal

Do you know why I’d rather lose 3-5 pounds of fat per month than 10+ of weight? Simply because it lets me know that the majority of the weight I lose will come from fat and not other tissues like muscle. There’s this idea that all weight loss is created equal. And they simply don’t
