Maybe the Atkins diet really is the best idea since sliced bread. I’ve discovered it’s really, really hard to convince a person who lost a lot of weight on a fad diet that it didn’t actually work.
I’m frequently asked which diet plan, training program or exercise is the best. Yes, I am extremely confident in my professional skills and ability to help people change their bodies. You’d probably expect me to say that my own training systems and exercise progressions are the only way to train – but in all honesty, we all have different goals and abilities. And there are just too many other variables involved making it virtually impossible to say one single method will ever exist that works best for everybody.
Same holds true for diet. While I highly recommend Dr. John Berardi’s complete nutrition program to my clients, family and friends – any program will only be as effective as your ability and desire to use it as intended.
Who am I to suggest the hottest abdominal training gizmo seen on late-night TV (with no fewer than 4 easy payments) or the latest best selling diet book don’t hold the answers to all of your fitness questions?
If you’re really under the impression that eat right and exercise doesn’t apply to you, and you’ve stumbled upon a more magical solution, by all means, go for it. Have your plan and stick to it though. There’s a saying in the fitness biz (and I wish I knew who to credit for this one)…
A poorly designed plan done well will always outperform a well-designed plan that doesn’t get done.
