It’s really getting out of control.
Here’s the problem: We (personal trainers) learn more about nutrition and exercise every day. In effect, we have a skewed idea of what is “common knowledge”. The more we learn, the more skewed this perception becomes. If you’re not aware of this, think back to what you considered “common knowledge” on the day you started your fitness career. Compare that to what you’d call “common knowledge” now. Yeah. Quite a difference, eh?
