I have shared many great articles over the past years showing how people simple ways to prevent or overcome various health problems. It is fair to say that a majority of these articles relate more to people aged in their 40s plus, as most of the health problems we see tend to become very obvious as we age. We tend to forget that people in their 20s face many different struggles, and in this modern age of technology advancing at an astonishingly rapid rate we can take for granted the health problems affecting them. In this article I asked our trainer Kim Logan who is in 25 to explore the big problems facing our young generation today.

We all know that losing weight is the most popular goal held by most people and we are constantly striving to shed the kilos and slim down in the belief it will make us happy and feel better about ourselves. Studies show that the average person will ty to lose weight 15 times throughout their life. Unfortunately, the very act of trying to lose weight for most people is a very unhappy experience and can even cause severe health problems. We believe that to be healthy we must strive to make our body suffer by starving our body of food and punishing it with exercise. Most of the plans for losing weight are still based upon the calorie deficit model which sounds simple in theory, but is ignorant to many health principles that we must abide by. We are constantly bombarded with advertising claiming to help people lose weight in a short amount of time. This unrealistic expectation along with the endless Instagram fitspiration images has many convinced this is what they have to do.

It is fair to say the community is much more aware of the benefits of healthy eating and exercise than say 20-30 years ago. The explosion of wellness as a mainstream trend has seen great positive changes with hundreds of gyms, Pilates and Yoga studios opening and even healthier fast food restaurants and menus at restaurants now part of the mainstream. I remember when I was 20 there was only 2 gyms near where I lived whereas now there would be over 100 gyms! Unfortunately, this interest in our health and wellness has also opened the floodgates for unreliable and false information, especially when we talk about diet and fitness. There is so much information floating around about nutrition and exercise, that it’s sometimes hard to discern fact from myth. And unfortunately for many of us, hearing is believing. Having been a trainer for over 16 years I have had to explain the truth about many of these myths to people on multiple occasions. I have seen how many people have been getting nowhere with their health and fitness efforts for the simple reason they based their plan entirely on poor information. In this article, I am going to look at 10 of the myths I often spend the most time explaining to people and help you avoid the trap so many others fall into.
