My twitter nutrition debate with BBC’s ‘ask the Dr”

9 years back, I was in the thick of writing up my Masters thesis

(did I mention I was a published scientist!?) 🙂

 

During this time, I was up to my eye balls reading research papers

In particular, a lot from this chap at Brum Uni called Prof. Asker Jeukendrup

A world leader in nutrition and exercise for health and performance

 

Fast forward to the other week and I saw a tweet from Michael Moseley

The chap who does those BBC documentaries on exercise and nutrition ‘ask the Dr’

 

Big Mike had been saying how successful nutrition can’t be as simple as calories in calories out…

That there were far more deeper, complex things we need to know

 

So I felt obliged to share my experience in not just studying but coaching this, to the doctor

My response?

 

Rubbish!

 

Yes, the ‘make up’ of your calories is key…

Hitting your daily target via a bowl of coca pops, a bag mini eggs and XL Whopper Meal isn’t smart, BUT….

 

Lets not dress it up Mike

To loose, hold or gain weight, you have to consume less, equal or more calories than you burn

You can’t get around or cheat that science, like you can’t live without breathing oxygen

 

The last thing YOU need is more confusing info

The reality is the key to sound nutrition from performance and body isn’t knowing more, ITS DOING MORE

 

So then a few days later THIS HAPPENS!…

 

Prof Jeukendrup tweeted the below fact from a study:

 

‘ADHERENCE not diet composition is most strongly associated with weight loss and disease outcomes’

 

Doing what you know you should do, is the holy grail

Not ‘kinda doing’

Not ‘ah its alright’

But actually doing it

 

So THE BIGGEST thing with nutrition isn’t hidden at the supplement shop, in a recipe book, or in your glitzy magazine

 

Once you have been given the support and structure as what to do with your nutrition, as Nike once said

 

JUST DO IT

 

Speak shortly
