Great Article by Jen Heath

there’s an article over on T-mags sister site, http://www.figureathlete.com, that exposes some training/nutrition dogmas that seem to have taken hold within the physique community. I suggest everyone go over there and check it out:

some highlights:

  1. its the deficit that burns fat, regardless of where it comes from (diet or training). the old calories in vs calories out.

  2. eating every few hours offers no advantage over a less frequent meal plan.

  3. steady state cardio isn’t inferior to HIIT, and HIIT isn’t always the best way to burn fat.

these are just the few that stuck out in my mind anyway, now go check out the article for yourself
