As the chart depicts there are many factors on why we gain weight and the obesity epidemic. Most of us have an idea of what we should be doing to lose weight, yet we struggle
How to see through the pseudoscience and bullshit...
We are constantly bombarded with false information through advertising, the mainstream and social media and in stores. We constantly hear about those magical breakthrough diets and products with the metabolism boosting super ingredients that’s going to help “melt fat”, shed those winter pounds, improve vitality, limit the signs of aging etc. etc.
If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.......The downside is many of those products are filled with overhyped, misleading or false claims and will have little or no impact on fat loss.
The marketing will try bamboozle us with pseudoscience with advertising and labelling designed to appear scientific, however dig a little deeper many of those products lack any of the substance of science and will often cite weak evidence.
Before you believe everything they tell us look a little deeper at the “science” cited about the product.
A question that gets asked a lot
"is this food good for you or is this one bad"? I even get people sending me a picture of a food product they have just purchased and asking is if it good or bad.
The thing is it is hard to give an answer. It isn’t so black and white. Categorising foods as just good or bad is too simplistic.
