I have a few different clients that I have been working with for a while now. During our sessions we get into conversations about nutrition and their, relatively deeply rooted, philosophy is based on the (mis)information from the different diet plans….paleo, low-carb, etc. etc. I try to present the evidence-based side of nutrition, but to no avail. What are some ways to get them away from the ideas of the well-marketed “popular” diets?
As trainers we can share the nutritional guidelines and the latest “scientific research” to our clients.
My repetitive question for my clients is ” is it real food”?
We need to stay within our scope of practice and lead them to the truth with sound knowledge.
Paleo is not “new”, it’s the infiltration of Crossfit-which I still wonder about“.since as a fitness professional we are not suppose to give out “diets”
