What’s your nutritional skill level?
When you reflect on this question, what kind of responses come up for you? For some reason, it’s common for people to not think of nutrition as a set of skills. More often than not, most people think of nutrition as simply the knowledge of how to get from point A to point B. If you think about it more deeply, however, how often is the real limiting factor you lack of knowledge that say, you need to eat more veggies and less processed food?
In my experience, the limiting factor rarely boils down to clients not knowing what to eat or even how much to eat – e.g. your ideal macronutrient intake. This may come as a surprise to many of you who believe nutrition simply boils down to knowing your macro-split and then tracking your food intake in an app like My Fitness Pal.
To be clear, doing both these things are useful nutritional tools, but it’s important to classify them correctly – they are tools. This is an important distinction because they open the door to explore the question “what other tools are there in nutrition” and more importantly, “which tool or set of tools are best for me?”
In fact, a major meta-analysis of all the top named diets (think Paleo, Jenny Craig, Macros, Vegetarianism, etc.) sought to ask the question: which is the best diet for fat loss? What the study found was that the best diet is the one you will actually do. In other words, they were all effective for those who were able to stick to them for the long haul.
This study resonates with my experience having coached hundreds of clients: there is no single best tool or diet that works well for everyone. Rather, there are a range of tools you can use and “the best” simply boils down to the tool(s) that works best for your lifestyle, goals, & individual health needs.
