Have you ever heard the expression that you can’t out-exercise a bad diet? There’s a lot of truth to it. For long-term health, and to fully reach your fitness goals, it’s imperative that you support your exercise habit with healthy eating habits.
We see some very common dietary “mistakes” time and again with our clients that are impeding their success. One of the most common we see in clients who have stubborn fat to lose is that they eat poorly throughout the day. But this doesn’t necessarily mean they eat too much – in fact, they’re usually eating too little, and choosing the wrong things.
