Why Most Diets And Work Out Plans Are GARBAGE!!!

fitness-594143_960_720

There are some really good coaches out there, but “some” doesn’t compare to the majority. With fitness and looking good becoming more of a priority (or even just trying to not be obese) the fitness industry is completely saturated with online coaches and different programs. You could Google workout plans and find hundreds, if not thousands of different routines. Does that means they’re all good because they made it to the internet? No! That just means someone posted them on their site or forum. Today we have so many coaches and routines that it can get overwhelming for potential clients to decide. One may have more credibility through experience, while the other has actually attained a degree in the field. One can have decent results and accomplishments, while the other has none but claims to have accomplished a lot without proof. With seeing the extent some fitness models, coaches, and nutritionists will go, I can see how hard it is for potential clients to get confused and shy away from the idea all together. Hiring an online coach doesn’t have to be overwhelming, but there are a few things you should consider:

1) COOKIE CUTTER PLANS: A big problem with most online coaches (or coaches in general) are cookie cutter routines. What is that? That’s a “one size fits all” routine that they give to everyone regardless of unique needs, age, focus, etc. Immense numbers of coaches get exposed for sending cookie cutter routines to clients all the time.

SOLUTION: Make friends with some of the other clients by the same coach or do your research on him/her. Knowing what the other clients are doing helps you compare and see if the coach is really designing programs for YOU or NOT.

2) CREDIBILITY: Many coaches recently have perfected the art of SCAMMING. They know if a coach has a more accomplishing background, the client feels he/she too can accomplish that much under the wing of that coach. Unfortunately, many coaches have started either exaggerating their story or making up one. Some top fitness models have gotten exposed for claiming to have power lifting world records, black belts, charity, marathons, attaining looks naturally, etc. There really is no limit to the madness. Most “fitness gurus” have never been truly in the field of fitness.

SOLUTION:  Do a background check and find proof. No proof, no accomplishment. Most individuals would gladly have some sort of post or news in the paper about achieving something “so amazing”. He broke a world record? Have him (or look yourself) find it on a trustworthy site. Sources such as a friend agreeing doesn’t count.

3) NOT OPTIMAL: Regardless of if it’s workout or diet, always check to see if your coach is wanting to help you with an optimal plan. What do I mean? I mean your coach should be finding the best possible route for you to get LONG TERM RESULTS and have SOMEWHERE TO GO NEXT. It’s easy to get caught up on quick results, which is why many individuals don’t mind these coaches that prescribe crash diets. The low calories as a challenge and the coach as motivation makes up for the starvation, right? Coaches and program writers all over the world know that most clients want immediate results. So what do they do? They give them exactly what they want. Give the customer what they want and they’ll buy, right? The problem is not getting the results, but what happens to your body and what happens next. During a crash diet (basically starving for weightloss) you do plenty of harm to your body as well as give yourself no hope for progression. What do I mean? After the coach tells you to only eat 1000 calories, then what? Once your body finds homeostasis (balance to where your body stops changing and your weight loss stops) you have to drop more calories or do more work to further your progress. That means either working out more (expending more calories) or eating less (taking in less calories. After eating less than 1000 calories (let alone less than 1800) and working out almost everyday like a lot of these coaches prescribe. You will either end up in the hospital, gain your weight back after eating “normally”, have long term effects, get injured, lose ample amount of muscle, or even death (sounds extreme, but starvation combined with too much working out can be quite dangerous).

SOLUTION: Find a coach that tries to find your maintenance calories. See if he/she is making small adjustments along the way rather than big chunks at once. Aim for roughly one pound a week for weight loss/gain. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. If you feel like you’re being starved or you can’t even function during the day then it’s a good signed of exaggerated dieting or training. Of course being hungry is a part of dieting, don’t get that mixed up (Everyone complains about hunger on a diet, well hunger is a side effect of not eating enough calories). Your coach should be working with you, not just prescribing extreme changes to your lifestyle.

Hopefully you now see what to look out for when looking for a diet plan, coach, or workout routine. In a heavily saturated industry, it gets overwhelming to find the right help. In order to get the help you need and deserve, you must first eliminate all the bulls*** and get to those who can really help you. We’re not here to sell plans, we are here to sell results and A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE!

Getting Rid Of Arm Flab

armflab

We’ve all had that one area where fat does not want to leave. That area that is last to shrink, but first to grow. For some people the back of the arm is a very difficult area to lose fat. These individuals will always wear sleeves and listen to gurus who preach “fat targeting” and inevitably “waist trainers”. The truth behind how to get rid of flabby arms (arm fat) seems very complex, but is actually quite simple. There are some things to consider before determining what actions you need to take. Below I will discuss some possible causes and their solutions (and in the order you should analyze and check off).

 

Cause 1) Body fat %: First off, if you’re body fat percentage is pretty high you will surely have “flabby” areas. A lot of people disregard the fat around their body while being fixated on a specific area. Time and time again I see someone with pretty high body fat claiming to do abdominal fat targeting. This is beyond ridiculous and should be avoided. Sometimes you’re body fat percentage will dictate how flabby these areas are.

 

Solution 1) Lower your body fat percentage by *gasp* dieting. Even when an area is the last to “tone up” (like most individual’s lower abdominals) if you get to a decent body fat percentage even the most stubborn areas should “tone” (most people under estimate their body fat percentage).  Girls hold more fat than guys generally because of hormones, so never hold unrealistic expectations for yourself. If you are male, know your expectations can be unrealistic as well (most guys want to look like fitness models who don’t even look like that year round, photo-shop, and take drugs).

 

Cause 2) Body Composition: The next step after dieting is realizing your muscle/fat ratio at specific areas. Some areas APPEAR “flabbier”, because of it’s soft appearance. When neglecting specific muscles, even when dieting that area will not look “toned”. Good example with myself would be when I am bulking, areas that have more muscle appear more lean due to the amount of muscle compared to body fat covering it. Another example would be guys weighing 130 pounds without 3D abdominals. That is because yes they’re low in body fat, but the muscle is non-existent. Same idea with other areas of the body.

Solution 2) Train every part of your body to make sure no area is lacking muscle. If you’re afraid of muscle, because you’re a girl Google some fitness models….not the anabolic/testosterone taking females you think are natural. If building muscle was so easy obesity wouldn’t be at an all time high. Never neglect exercise or building muscle. For the arms, I recommend working out the triceps to build some muscle, then combine with dieting to lower the fat covering it.

 

Cause 3) Loose Skin: Last, after all else has failed it is time to determine if it is just loose skin. Most individuals claim they have loose skin when they’re stomach still extends over their toes (and some guys can’t even find their manhood). If you have gotten to a low percentage of body fat and have built some muscle around the area, maybe it has something to do with loose skin. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT claim loose skin before fixing cause 1 and 2. This should be the last step of the process. Not only will you fix the arm flab, but will become all around healthier in the process.

 

Solution 3) Either live with it and be proud of your body and appreciate you even have one…..or you can have surgery. Your choice. I recommend just being happy with the body God gave you, but if you truly cannot live with it I recommend seeing a professional. You should not ever hate your body, feel you have to hide it, or feel you MUST change it. This decision is 100% yours to make.

 

As you can see, I don’t promise my ridiculous product “arm flab be gone 1000” will be the solution, but rather give you something you can actually use to help…..knowledge. With that said, it is up to you to change your life or pointlessly keep trying different creams and trainers. The decision is yours.
