Are you still following the nutritional guidelines from the Food Pyramid? Did you know that nutritionists have completely replaced it? And in fact, they did that quite a while ago. But the information hasn’t necessarily been injected into the mainstream consciousness yet. And unless you search for these types of modern information about nutrition, you’re going to be following outdated advice to your detriment.
But knowing this, what resources should you use? Where should you go for cutting edge nutrition information? Five places you can hit up right away include major brand Twitter feeds, major news reports, local gyms, YouTube fitness channels, and even government reports that you can access.
Major Brand Twitter Feeds
Major brand social media feeds that deal with nutrition, the Plum Organics Twitter feed for example, are some of the best sources of information that you’ll find about nutrition through the whole spectrum. In short snippets, Twitter feeds or Facebook pages can have updates and conversations where interaction makes accurate information float to the top, and honest and genuine opinions mix with expert knowledge to give you the context of data as well.
Major News Reports
You can also scan health news reports to find out what’s going on either locally or globally when it comes to nutrition. Hot topics are going to include things like the value of GMO’s, or how organic farming is changing the food industry, and what they means to you, both in terms of health and how much things are going to cost. Avoiding smaller, less sourced publications will help you get more accurate information, so avoid clickbait and advertising-heavy site when possible.
No matter where you live, there’s probably a gym nearby that you can sign up for. And you know what? The owner, or the people who work there, or the personal assistants that you can hire, are guaranteed to be up on all of the latest fitness news. It’s their job, it’s their industry, and they know if they can hook you on their services, they’ll have a client for life!
YouTube Fitness Channels
And if you don’t want to go to a physical gym, but would rather just learn about some nutrition stuff virtually from the same sort of people, do some searching for relevant YouTube fitness and nutritional channels. Thousands of people are willing to give their free advice, so long as you’ll listen to it.
And as much as some people don’t want to trust their government, they really aren’t out to get you. They want you to be healthy and fit, and that means there are plenty of free government resources that are available through the net for you to explore in your free time that will expand your knowledge of modern nutritional guidelines.
