Name 5 types of diets out there that people claim are, “THE BEST.”
What if I told you most of it is BS? Now some of you may say, “well xyz diet worked for me, but....”
And there sure as hell is a “but.”
➡️ The Diet Didn’t Work If You “Fell Off”
A diet that works for you is one that you’re consistent with.
Keto works for X amount of time until six months later and you no longer have the energy you had when you originally started because now you’re extremely depleted from carbs and that’s your body’s main source of energy; you’re now forcing it to make energy via more complex processes, which isn’t necessarily a good thing.
And you can say this for ANY diet.
XYZ worked, but..... 🚨🚨🚨
➡️ Here’s why most restrictive diets don’t work.
But first let’s address why they DO work at first....
They work temporarily because when you’re on a diet, you tend to make BETTER food choices naturally (micronutrient-dense versus less valuable, on-the-go food).
So instead of going for chips and maybe a couple of mini chocolate bars, you go for a handful of nuts and grapes. ✅
But let’s say you’re on a high fat/keto-like diet. You’re mostly eliminating carbs (and protein) from your diet.
Your body will start to thank you for giving it more micronutrient-dense foods, but eventually once you start to do this over long periods, you may feel crappy because carbs actually do your body so damn well.
It’s the fact that typically, when not aware of our unhealthy eating patterns, we don’t even realize WHY our body makes the changes it does, so we thank the restrictive diet, but then don’t know why we fell off when it was going “so well.”
➡️ Try A Mindful, Healthy, Non-Restrictive Diet
I recommend a well-rounded diet that doesn’t eliminate any food group, unless medically advised otherwise. There are always outliers, but keep in mind, most reading this will not be an outlier, even though reading that, you may think, “I AM THE OUTLIER; DIETS NEVER WORK FOR ME!”
But the reason they never work, or only work temporarily, is because of what I’ve mentioned above with diets being highly restrictive.
Cont’d in comments....
These are today after eating 200 protein, 800 carbs, and 60 fats yesterday. Since I have been either low carb or keto the last 6 months my insulin sensitivity is very good and it’s been a while since I just hammered some food. I took 2 GDA plus 500 mg berberine with each carb meal to help store more as muscle glycogen versus fat storage. Scale is up 5 lbs to 212 but that will drop again by next weekend. Today back to 300 protein 100 carbs 50 fats.
I am really enjoying bodybuilding again after feeling burned out the past few years. I was training but going through the motions, training 30 mins a day to just maintain. Not anymore, excited to keep training hard to see where my physique will be at the end of this year.
what do you get when you put a bunch of bankers in a mud run? team dirty money, that’s what.
work hard, play harder. @valliancebank took on @tough_mudder dallas today + id say we killed it. so incredibly proud of each one of these people. #joblove#toughmudder#vbank
Macro world is just full of magic, you just need to know where to look for it.

Wanna know how to not Stress your body while eating!? *
Yes, eating can be a stressful experience even though you may not know it! It takes a lot of work for your body to break down the foods you eat and absorb the energy needed. *
Read below for strategies and swipe 👈 and check the look on my face... *
1. Start with a smile of gratitude, giving appreciate to the fact that you are blessed enough to have food infront of you, whenever and wherever you choose.
2. Chew slowly, most of our digestion begins in our mouth where we break down the fibers and nutrients of what's in our bowl or on our plate.
3. Take a few breaths and take atleast 15-20 minutes for each meal. This will help your satiety cues, allowing for you to eat to 80% full and allowing you to feel energized and not stuffed. One of the most important behavioral practices in realtion to loosing or maintaining a healthy weight!
