People like short sound bites, so I decided to share my stance on several controversial topics in 140 characters or less. If you want to go a little deeper, I’ve linked to related blog posts beneath each topic.
Carbs: If you can, eat them. If you can’t, you need a doctor, not a diet book.
Sugar: If you are healthy and active it’s totally fine in moderation. If you are unhealthy or addicted you need medical treatment, not a diet book.
Gluten: If you have celiac or are intolerant, it’s best to avoid. If you are healthy it’s fine in moderation.
Cardio: If you enjoy it, do as much of it as you like, just make sure you eat enough to support it. If you don’t like it it’s fine to skip it. Lift.
Six-Pack Abs: Mostly genetics.
See –> Visible Abs.
Cellulite: Normal characteristic of healthy human female. Not a flaw. Treatments are mostly full of crap. Save your money.
Extreme Diets: Not a fan.
BMI: An imperfect measure of mortality risk. Lifestyle and genetics are more important factors.

Calories: They matter. They are not the ONLY thing that matters, but they matter.
Adrenal Fatique: Call me skeptical. Eat enough food. Get enough sleep. Get regular sunlight. If you’re still sick, you need a doctor, not a diet book.
Doctors: Some doctors suck. That doesn’t mean we should discard the entire lot. If you feel your doctor is dismissing you, find a better one!

GMOs: I’m not worried. If you are, buy organic!
And last but not least…
Vaccines: Get them.
