Anita has her masters in personal nutrition and is the owner of Fact Vs Fitness.com she is a personal trainer and enjoys working out herself! She joins the show to talk about her site and how she is helping clear up some confusion with a few fitness myths out there.
Chances are good that you’ve heard something about health and fitness that might be exactly true. It might have been some diet tip or trend or maybe it was a new workout that promised to get you ripped fast. Whatever the case may be there is a lot of content out there but it’s not always the most accurate. Anita has noticed this and that’s why she came up with the idea for her website, everything that she publishes is based on science and studies built on facts that are measurable and can be proven.
On this episode Anita talks about nutrition and how we are not all the same and different diets are better suited for different people. Anita was recently inspired by another trainer who gave the advice to eat less and move more for weight loss. While this advice isn’t the craziest idea out there, eating less and exercising more doesn’t solve every problem. Sometimes food is a huge factor and Anita describes further why people have different dietary needs and why one diet that might work for you might not work for someone else.
Also Anita talks about protein and carbohydrate combinations and how a low carb diet might not always be the answer. We see a lot of fitness pros utilizing a low carb high protein approach but is that always the way to go? Anita goes on to explain how our bodies have different genetics and different gut bacteria which also have an effect on how foods break down and are used in our system.
