That’s why Personal Trainers should never advise their clients or anyone else about food and how or what you eat. You are not trained in nutrition. You know nothing about food and only cause more confusion and harrm.
So please, dear Personal Trainers, shut your pieholes regarding nutrition!
Instead, focus on how you train your clients, and get better at that. Unfortunately, most PTs don’t even know how to train people properly.
Mostly, they just want clients to sign up and train with them as often as possible to generate more income.
Not for 1 minute do they think about heart health or their client’s general well-being.
PTs are only good at pushing out their photos and videos of them pumping iron in the gym while trying to show off their bodies. By doing this type of promotion, they’re trying to lure you in, making you believe you will reach their fitness level if you work with them.
And that, dear folks, is all nonsense, and you won’t.
Heart Stress causes Heart Disease
Personal Trainers are typically gym fanatics who have been lifting weights for years. They go to the gym daily to work out.
By doing so, they’re slowly causing themselves a nice dose of heart disease.
That’s right. You don’t only contract heart disease from sugar and sugar-loaded, high-carb foods. Stress also causes heart disease — I’m sure you’ve heard.
Many hyper-stressed business leaders have died from heart attacks caused by stress.
Pushing your body too much while hard training daily, you are pumping cortisol — your stress hormone — into your bloodstream and heart.
Anaerobic and high-intensity training is perceived as stress by your brain. Therefore, your fight or flight (cortisol) hormone is released to warn you of the imminent danger.
However, as you are pumping away and stuck in a crazed adrenalin rush, you don’t realize or take note of the warning shot your body sends you. You just carry on with your hard-hitting activity.
Imagine driving your car — you see another vehicle veering directly towards you. What do you do? Nothing?
No, you act and rapidly get out of the danger zone. Your stress hormone alerted you and you saved your life!
But when training hard, you keep heading for the head-on collision. Does that make sense? Not to me.
That’s why my training methods focus on heart and cardiovascular health.
The ongoing stress and cortisol flooding your bloodstream wind up in your heart, where heart disease slowly starts to set in.
For this very reason, many professional athletes across all sports arenas have had heart attacks and died, as have general fitness enthusiasts.
“In most young competitive athletes (less than 35 years of age) sudden death is due to congenital cardiovascular disease. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy appears to be the most common cause of such deaths, accounting for about half of the sudden deaths in young athletes.” National Library of Medicine
All of this is kept rather quiet and generally not even broadcast on mainstream media.
It’s better to scare folks than let them know they might be overtraining and hurting themselves.
After all, that would harm several industries’ bottom lines.
The Fitness Industry: Fewer people would sign up for gym memberships, choosing safer, more natural workout methods instead.
The Supplement Industry: People would stop buying protein shakes and other completely unnecessary supplements and instead eat real, natural food.
The Medical and Pharma Industries: We’d have fewer injuries and heart disease, leading to less business for the medical and pharma industries.
The Food Industry: People may start paying more attention to their diets and eating, clean healthy food. And steer clear of highly processed, sugar and carb-laden (also sugar) foods, junk and fast foods.
Heck, we may just become a healthier world and population. But who wants that? That’s not good for business, guys!
Do you know what I’m saying here?
These industries all complete the circle that forms the unhealthy lifestyle, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, hypertension, and more illnesses while masquerading as your best friends.
Whatever you do, please don’t take advice from your personal trainer, if you have one.
And if you do, my best advice is to ditch them. Start daily frequent walking and practice simple bodyweight exercises that you can do outdoors, at home, or anywhere else.
The 5 main exercises you need are push-ups, planks, squats, downhill ski position, and lunges.
Vary your workouts with these exercises 3 to 4 times per week. For example:
- Doing all 5 at once with 1 to 3 sets
- Focusing on 2 exercises one day with more reps and sets, and the other 3 another day.
It’s not okay or just fine to stuff your mouth with pizza, bread, pasta, noodles, and candy. Please don’t fall for these lies.
All grains — including rice, wheat, and barley — and sugars are pro-inflammatory to your system and cause weight gain, multiple illnesses, and diseases. These are, meanwhile, scientifically proven facts!
Carbohydrate and sugar overload causes rapid and continuous weight gain, insulin resistance, diabetes, and an unhealthy lifestyle which may reduce your life span.
Please take advice from modern medical doctors, and nutritionists, like me.
Many doctors are now focusing their efforts and prescribing their patients high-protein, healthy fat diets with little to no carbohydrate intake instead of medication.
I think there’s a big lesson there.
