What Diet is the "Best" Diet?
Paleo Con: no raw milk 🥛
Can't agree more. The diet wars are overwhelming. I have researched several diets (e.g., keto, IF). And its clear that there is no one diet for everyone. And you need to choose a "diet" that you can stick to about 80% of the time.
I had a lot of success with intermittent fasting at 16:8 interval (sometimes 18:6). This got me to lose a lot of weight but I was also skinny fat since I wasn’t lifting.
I’m curious if it could be sustainable now with the goal of muscle growth, my guess is no.
This is relieving. I feel like this community of lifters, runners, athletes etc are coming to the conclusion that working out and eating simple but good foods that aren’t processed is the key. There isn’t some magic pill or diet that fixes everything. Just simple. Eat good foods. You can still have things you enjoy (cheesecake for me) but compensated with diet AND exercise will only provide good results if consistent. Right?
Hello, Whats your opinion on Seed oils? I have seen a lot of talk about that going around lately.
When dieting, to you account for exercise using the calories burned according to Whoop, step tracking app, etc? Or do you just set the activity multiplier in the TDEE calculation?
I've never much trusted the TDEE multiplier because keeping the same energy balance day to day seems most important, but I've seen a lot of people saying fitness tracker calories burned are wildly inaccurate.
Awesome article, MY BRUDDAH!
The online * diet advocacy is one specific portion of the wider online fitness and lifestyle mess of attention seeking, sometimes with terrible results as we've seen. I tend to skip these days when I come across another variation, or reselling of some extreme diet.
There are some pros and cons to different diet modes to specific circumstances of course, and in the past I've dabbled with some of this myself, but they are generally poorly sustained and of time-limited benefit to the average person.
