Why a Nutritionist Says You Should Never Say, ‘I’m Going on a Diet’
twenty20

Keto, ketotarian, vegan, pegan. We can barely keep up with all of the diets swirling around the wellness space right now. 

But according to Bryan Baia, Precision Nutrition coach, ACSM-certified personal trainer and coach at Athlete Training Club, the concept of “going on a diet” is flawed. 

“A diet is not something you go on; it’s not Splash Mountain at Disney World. A diet is the combination of the things you are eating,” he told us. 

Try to avoid labeling your eating patterns as a diet, and think of healthy eating as more of a long-term lifestyle choice than a temporary way to drop a few pounds. “A healthier, more sustainable way to think of it is, ‘I’m looking into cleaning up my diet,’”  Baia added.

Just remember, being your healthiest self is a marathon, not a sprint.
