If you're a longtime fitness enthusiast then you no doubt know that exercise is only one component of what is required to achieve the results you want. Unlike many common gym myths, the phrases, "You can't out-train a bad diet," and "Abs are made in the kitchen" are two sayings that, unfortunately, are more reality than myth.
Here to help provide some no-nonsense, evidence based ideas for how you can change your diet to change your body is Sohailla Digsby, a Registered Dietician who is the author of the books: Countdown to Your Best Body Success Journal and Best Body Cookbook and Menu Plan as well as the leader of the Best Body in 52 online nutrition coaching program.
On this episode of All About Fitness we discuss nutrition, the difference between a nutritionist and Registered Dietician, how you can make healthier nutrition choices and 5 simple steps that you can take to change your diet. Today.
Don't let your nutrition choices hold you back from seeing the results you really want from your fitness program; this episode will help you understand the role of nutrition as well as help identify some simple changes that you can start making to your diet.

If you are interested in seeing fitness and nutrition educators like Sohailla and I in person we will be appearing at SCW MANIA Fitness conferences in 2017. You do NOT have to be a fitness professional to attend, in fact we love it when the general fitness enthusiast comes to the events. In 2017 I'll be teaching workshops on kettlebell training, core training, dynamic anatomy and the role of recovery in fitness

As a fitness professional my primary focus is on enhancing physical performance through movement-based strength and conditioning programs. What that means in plain English is that I help people move better first before helping them to become stronger or more powerful.
A well-known joke among fitness professionals is that the most common workout goals are to: "lose weight" and "tone up." If a personal trainer received $1 for every time he or she heard that phrase every single one of us would be a multi-millionaire. The fact is that most people start a workout program in order to look better, not move better. With that in mind I plan on regularly interviewing guests with a background in bodybuilding, whether as a competitor, researcher or coach.
