Commentary: Keeping It Real

As discussed here just last week, it is difficult to determine a universal exercise and nutrition program that works perfectly for everyone. Because our body chemistry is unique to us and not everyone enjoys the same results. However, as detailed in the link below, key to successful health and fitness is the What (general guidelines) rather than the How (detailed instructions). For examples, what we should focus on is: exercise (not so much which exercises); eat less (portion control versus specific diet or calorie counting); drink more water; eat more plants (without worrying about which specific fruits & vegetables); and other ideas. Let’s not stomp on the ants while the elephants are getting away.
