134 - 10 Highly Overrated Fitness Trends You Should Probably Avoid


As you know, the fitness industry is chock full of fitness trends, most of them being absolute bullsh*t. Everyone wants to jump on what's "hot", whether it's a new fad diet, a workout program, or some fancy fitness gizmo.

Some are useless while others may actually hinder your progress and today I want to share 10 of them that you should avoid.

  1. Making your diet all about specific macros (i.e. IIFYM)
  2. The Whole 30 Diet
  3. Butter in your coffee
  4. The Keto Diet and related products
  5. Calorie burn calculators
  6. Intermittent fasting
  7. Meal prepping
  8. Counting calories
  9. Detoxes
  10. 99% of supplements including fat burners, greens powders, and anything claiming to boost your metabolism

I will add a caveat here and say that not all of these things are "bad". Some are actually very helpful in certain situations and with certain people, but for the majority of us, just focusing on the basics of good health and wellness is more than enough to stay fit and healthy for the rest of your life.
