1. Track your food and how it impacts your body. We need to create awareness about the choices we make affect our bodies and our health.
2. You need to EAT to LOSE weight. If you starve your body, you will not build muscle. Your body will go into preservation mode and hold onto fat.
3. If something isn't working for you, STOP DOING it. Find something new. Be curious and ask questions. Be mindful of confirmation bias.
4. SOCIAL MEDIA is often stronger than science. Don't be afraid to follow the sources back to the original research.
