Nor should I care which diet plan you choose to follow.
All I want is what’s best for you, and chances are, what’s best for you is to lose some excess body fat (just guessing)
So if you find a comfortable way to accomplish this, who am I to judge?
Now, I have a big issue when it comes to false statements about a diet program.. or false statements about physiology and health in general (especially when these false statements are being sold for a profit)
But your personal choices? those are none of my business.
Here’s an analogy (keep in mind, I’m known for really bad analogies)
4 employees drive into work.
One drives a 2001 Celica
The other drives a leased Ford Escape.
The other Drives a brand new Audi A6 that her daddy bought her for her 21st birthday.
The last employee drives a fully loaded Escalade that he absolutely can not afford.
Now, regardless of the car they drive, the important thing is that they all get to work on time.
Now, the Guy who drives the decade old celica may think the guy driving the Escalade is crazy for spending 2/3rd’s of his income on a car each month.
The person driving the Escape may spend every day loathing the girl driving the Audi.
The person driving the Audi may be self conscious of what people think of her car.
And the person driving the Escalade may be perfectly happy with his financial decisions.
But again, none of this really matters if they all make it to work on time.
Focus on what’s important.
And what is important is what works for you, in your current life situation.
In our car example, each person may have their own perfectly logical reasons for the vehicle they drive. Or they may not. But in the end, it doesn’t matter.
Leaving our analogy and returning to diets, it’s all about the end goal.
The end goal is overall Health & happiness. Being lean and muscular is the means to this end, and your diet is just the process.
The process you choose can be super complicated or dead simple, but no matter what any one else thinks, if you are using a process that you enjoy and that gets you results, then you are using the right process.
While everyone will have an opinion on how you decide to reach this goal, remember it’s no more important then their opinion on what you drive or what clothes you wear.
Besides, chances are their opinions are formed on anecdotes, sleazy marketing and quickly made assumptions.
Do what works for you and remember the diet isn’t the end goal, the health and weight loss is.
