With so much information out there about health and wellness, everyone (including myself) thinks they are an expert, it can be confusing and even down right frustrating to know what is good quality information. You read an article stating a diet which includes meat has no effect on your cholesterol levels, then you read one the next minute supporting the opposite- both articles site sources and research which backs their claim, perfectly too. So let me share a little secret- most people don’t know what they are talking about when it comes to health and wellness and more importantly- what’s popular, is usually the worst type of information out there. Writers and researchers have a hard time dropping their own agendas and forget that we are all unique and what works for them, doesn’t necessarily work for others. Plain and simple, different people thrive on different types of diets, supplements and workouts. At the end of the day you really need to find out what works for you, follow information from a select few trusted sources, be willing to adapt and then go from there.
So in hopes of removing some myths around wellness, I’ve made this list, which (of course) is biased by my own point of views and agendas.
