It always seems like it’s the simple stuff that works when it comes to entertaining my kids.
And It’s the same when it comes to this fitness and toning up stuff.
I had a chat with someone the other day
Who wanted a personalised nutrition and exercise plan.
Which is great.
This is what we say we do here at Fruci Fit.
She asked if we do personalised plans with genetics,
As they had been speaking to a few others who said they could give them a personalised plan based on a genetic test
That they would get the results straight away and have a plan ready for them.
And she asked a great question:
“How can it be personalised without a genetic test?”
Know what to eat based on your DNA.
YET, the actual science right now says that choosing foods based on the current DNA tests they tell us to do for a £100 comes to conclusions that are about as weak as saying:
“people carry umbrellas when it rains. Umbrellas cause rain…”
Now, in the future, I am sure we will be using DNA tests to help us inform choices about nutrition or at least health in general, I am sure (along with tests on our gut health aka our poop)..
But right now? Even an $8 million study didn’t find any link between genes and diets.
Plus, what do you actually do with this information they give you?
Let’s say it says to eat more veggies, fruits, exercise more and a bit more protein.
Well, I’m guessing you knew that already, right?
And it’s the same intolerance testing…
Great on paper.
Find out which foods you’re intolerant to.
But the truth is,
It’ll probably just give you sooo many foods
That you end up eating less bread with delicious spreads and fillings…
Less carbs (and thus less fermentable fibre which causes bloating)
And maybe less junk / cake because it said ‘no dairy’…
Makes us eat fewer calories …
And that’s the power of a placebo effect..
But given that most people know what to do…
Why is it so hard to stick to?
Well, when we start out in the 28 Day Kickstart,
We have an initial one to one to put together YOUR plan (not my plan, not Karen’s plan, or anyone else’s plan)…
And something that’s REALLY interesting
Is how everyone defines eating “healthy” slightly differently:
“I eat well, I’m a veggie, I don’t eat meat”
“I eat well, I eat lots of oily fish and lean meat”
“I eat well, I eat no carbs”
“I eat well, I eat lots of fruit and veg”
“I eat well, I never eat fruit or carbs”
You get my point…
And that’s the problem..
We become attached to one diet
You need to find your way..
Just like we do inside the 28 Day Reboot starting this September
By using our 3F accountability system
That allows us to see how you respond to exercises sessions we do
And how you respond to the food habits we agree.
Because right now…
Support and accountability
Is the biggest indicator for the success of any transformation..
It is the key component behind why people can stick to something..
Just like the ladies here have said: https://frucifit.com/who-else-wants-results-like-this/
