Last night sported a rather good conversation among some of my fellow training partners.
The subject drifted to nutrition and the classic ‘find what works for you.’.
Did you know you don’t have to find out via trial and error, you can take a test based on your DNA and find out exactly what your body best responds to and depending how much you’re willing to invest potentially sensitivities and a whole dos too other information as well.
We live in a truly amazing world.
When in history has someone literally starting out of a journey of health improvement had access to such information?
Never is the answer.
Before people bitch about cost, it will be between £90-250.
People waste that kind of money on Skinny Tea, C9, and a lot of other bullshit, so investing it in a DNA/genetics related test for your health is well worth it.
The funny thing is while discussing it I could already hear all the responses people would have.
By responses I mean childish moaning and excuses.
Let me expand for a second.
Say you take said genetic test to know your optimal nutrition protocol (you’d also work with someone to really dial it in), one of the results says that you’re not very tolerant to one of your favourite foods and realistically you might want to curb your enthusiasm for indulging in it as you do.
“But…. But… I can’t live without it. Blah Blah Blah.”
The point is you can literally have something written on paper for a specific individual that is 99% what works for them and if it goes against what they WANT to hear/be told they will oppose it, make excuses and act like a child.
So these days I just sit and think –
“Do you know what, fuck it. You’re not going to listen so I’m not going to waste my time with you because I’m just too tired for the bullshit now.”
You see no matter what you can prove to people or how good your intentions are to help them, unless it fits what they want they won’t listen or be willing to make a change.
Yet that is something that you’re 100% entitled to.
So my good people who stick out and read my ramblings (I really do appreciate it you know), if you could have every answer for the questions you want to ask would you really want them?
Your clients and people you work with will only want the answers they want (of the most part), just keep this in mind.
Anyway I’m off rolling.

^^What you get is very eye opening and actually spot on, even if you don’t want it to be, it really is.
(I speak from experience on this one as I did it just to see and by jove it was all correct – years of medicals and hospital trips to back it up so I can confirm the info is solid).
