In the age of information and everyone being an “expert” on all the things thanks to google, it’s really hard to figure out what’s fact or fiction.
It’s scary when I see post and blogs that appear very informative on the surface but are actually propagating bad ideas that could and can be potentially harmful. Of course I’m speaking directly to the health and fitness industry.
Be careful what you consider “fact”. Take a common sense approach to information you read or hear: is it too good to be true? What’s the intent of the information provider or association? What studies and evidence was used to support the claims and information? We’re these studies peer reviewed or just random trails taken out of context to support the aforementioned information?
These are a few things to consider when figuring out what information you are going to choose as “fact” or “fiction”.
