Coconut Water & Green Juice Are Too High in Carbs??

"Coconut water and green juice are too high in carbs and you shouldn't be fasting " - WHAT? 👀  When your intuition says, you've got to be fucking joking but you say ok, I guess you know what you're talking about...

I joined a private gym a few months ago where nutrition consulting was part of the package. I know quite a lot about nutrition and have spent most of my life studying it, just not professionally and I'm always looking to uplevel my knowledge and health. So when I assume someone knows more or is more educated then I tend to take their advice - unfortunately even when my intuition is screaming "Hell NO!!"

Some of what I was told to do really didn't feel good to me (like that coconut water and green juice even with no fruit added were too high in carbs & that I shouldn't be fasting) but I decided to trust the process. Over the course of a few weeks, I did put on more muscle but I also put on fat, steadily felt more & more crap, my energy levels dropped and my skin got worse. This was really disheartening because I was in great shape when I'd started. It felt so wrong! So I tapped out, and went back to everything that I knew worked for me. Very quickly my body fat dropped again, my skin got its glow back & I started to feel back to my happy healthy self because I remembered to trust me again. The fact that my trainer was in worse shape than me should have been a telling sign.

So my lesson I've learned - and not for the first time, yet somehow I still make that same mistake from time to time when I forget to trust my own body and what I know! Is to be really careful who I listen to. We're always seeking out the magic answer, the thing that's going to make it all click but we often already know what works. And if you're going to take advice from someone, make sure it's from a person who already has the body & health you want and practices what they preach! Also - nutrients over macros EVERY. FUCKING. TIME.
