I don’t know if you’ve ever hopped on Dr Google or done a search on social media before…
But if you search for something like say for example “are carbs bad” or “how many meals should I eat per day to lose fat” you’ll receive a truckload of different answers and results. Which is cool in hindsight…
BUT. The bummer is that 9 times out of 10 your answers will contradict each other as you jump from page to page.
And all this will do is leave you more confused than when you jumped on to search, meaning that you’ll likely feel more bummed and frustrated and continue in your normal patterns that are keeping you stuck.
This is a shit scenario and I hate it because this is exactly how things were for me years ago.
What I wanted to do was craft together a collection of the biggest most asked about health and fitness myths on Google, and bust every single one of them in a raw and real video so that it gives you clarity and certainty over what may be keeping you stuck, why its a problem and how to move past it.
This is going to be a 2 part series so take away what you can from this one by either watching the whole video OR take note of the certain myths that i’m busting at certain times ie 6:17 is where you’ll hear me talk about the myth that lifting in a fasted state will damage your muscles; that way you can skip ahead to what will be most valuable or relevant to you.
Without further adieu, let’s get into some myth busting action!
—MYTH BUSTING TIME LINE—
1:45—Stop Binge Eating by not buying or keeping your trigger foods in the house

I’ll tell you what, I wish I was taught and shown this at the start of my transformation. Would have saved me loads of time, money, turmoil, and confusion that’s for sure! With the black and white, raw and real knowledge bombs you’ve received so far I hope this has made you feel now more certain about yourself and your journey, rather than more confused than before you checked this post out.
