Diet Culture: What "They" Say... and Why It Might Just Be Wrong.
Who are “they”, anyway? “They say protein causes cancer” “They say coffee is bad” “They say cut carbs to lose weight” People are constantly referring to “they”. We all know that “they” are Netflix documentaries, click bait articles on the #fakenews internet, fitspo accounts with people posing as experts in the nutrition + fitness realm. Enough with “they”! I brought my friend Mike Gorski on the podcast to discuss all the myths and misconceptions that the general public loves to cling to when it comes to nutrition. Mike is both an RD (one who understands athletes) and a strength coach, and I love his honest attitude when it comes to delivering accurate facts. We have some fun telling stories of what we have both been told and what others have said “they” have said. Hope you enjoy!
Mike is a Registered Dietitian and Strength Coach just outside of Madison, WI where he works with clients in person but also consults many clients online. His approach to nutrition and training is simple - be simple, and make real progress. Simple isn’t sexy, won’t sell millions of books, or a Netflix documentary - but it works.
