Possible controversial rant
Pause. Make that very quick possible controversial rant.
I just want to update you guys on the nutritionist appointment I had. Never again.
The problem: I don’t agree with modern nutrition at all. No big deal right?
Here’s the thing about recovery and nutritionists, they kind of go hand in hand. Most therapists/social works/doctors will say that in order to gain balance with nutrition and learn to properly feed your body you must meet with a nutritionist. The longer you have had an ed, the more important that becomes. Exactly what my doctor told me. The goal is to accept all food groups and get a variety and learn how each one plays an essential part in your wellbeing.
I’ve never wanted to see a nutritionist. At first I was trying to be open minded about the situation… agreed to go meet with a sports nutritionist, did that, notgonnahappenagain. Got preached on how grains are so so good and how carbs are so important for training, especially to the extent of which I am working my body.
From experience I know that I do in fact preform and feel noticeably better on a high protein/fat and lower carb intake. Tried to explain that, didn’t work so well. I was told that I need to be eating 50% carb and only about 25% both protein/fat. Goodbye 200lb deadlift, hello getting my ass kicked.
The kicker? I’m now officially doing my own nutrition and it feels great. Not counting macros or calories just simply eating when hungry. Meat, veggies, fruit, nuts/seeds, plain greek yogurt/cottage cheese (only dairy), gf oatmeal (only grain). Pretty sure I’m going back to paleo soon, very bloated and feel sick after both diary/grains. Love oatmeal, possibly worth the pain? I’ll settle for once a week. Best part, been 2 weeks back to training and my bench is where it was when I stopped. Shove it modern nutrition, you ain’t got nothing.
Note: This is totally a rant from my perspective/my body. EVERYONE is different, which means everyone’s body requires different macronutrients. I don’t believe in counting macros just that our biochemistries are not the same. Internally we don’t have the same tolerances.
I just wish nutritionists could understand this. Maybe the one I saw just sucked. But really, I’d rather save my money.
I’m looking at focusing this blog toward more nutrition/training based topics, you all dig?
Anything specific you would like me to post/rant on? Questions, comments… get at me.
