The Chances Are Your PT Doesn’t Know Much About Nutrition…

I have seen a huge spike recently in training plans advertised by Personal Trainers on social media.

More often than not, these plans always offer the client a “diet plan” to accompany their block of training.

Now, I hate to be the bearer of bad news and forgive me if it seems like I am taking a swipe at PT’s, but in all honesty, they probably haven’t got much of a clue when it comes to nutrition and they most certainly shouldn’t be giving prescriptive plans to people.

Do bear in mind that I am a PT too, so I am not saying that they are useless and I am not discrediting their ability to help you with training and exercise.

But I am questioning their ability to help you with nutrition.

And I am speaking from experience here, I have a Personal Training qualification and I can tell you now that it did not leave me in a position to be an authority on nutrition once I had qualified.

I used to give advice to my clients as a PT and wonder why they could not stick to what I was asking them to do.

And I realise now that it was because I just had no idea about real nutrition or how to really help them.

It has taken me years to get to where I am now when it comes to nutritional knowledge and truly being able to help people.

It has taken me years of continuous learning and continuous studying of the latest nutritional research to be in a position where I feel that I actually know what I am doing, and I still feel that I have so much still to learn!

In short, if you are going to a PT for nutritional help, the chances are, unless they have a passion for it and have studied it much further, you’re probably best to use them for their exercise knowledge only 🙂
