Fitness has become an in-trend profession nowadays, with every other kid in the street claiming to be a fitness expert. With fake YouTube subscribers, purchasable Instagram followers, and photoshop skills, a lot of these pseudo-experts easily get you trapped in their marketing gimmicks and steal your money. Taking away your money is one thing but harming your health is another. And when it comes to fitness, following wrong advice can easily land you in trouble related to your health.

So here are some telltale signs that the fitness experts or gurus you are following maybe shit.

1. They Say Calories Do Not Count And It Is Old Science

First things first, the rule of calories is derived from the laws of thermodynamics. There is a reason they are called laws and not the mythology of thermodynamics.  It is the law, it holds universal truth. And there are enough and adequate studies and case studies that show that calorie restriction or energy balance is the primary component of weight loss.

2. They Say Things Like Carbs Are Poison

Carbohydrates are the primary source of fuel for the human body and though they may not be essential for survival, they do play a major role when it comes to performance.  Saying things like they are poison and are killing you is outright retarded and stupid. This claim goes against the basic understanding of human metabolism.

3. They Are On Drugs And All Their Clients Are On Drugs

When you do anabolic steroids, things become different. As a study had shown that the subjects who took steroids made 2x the gains without any training compared to a group who trained regularly for 10 weeks.

So by injecting drugs into your body and building muscle do not have anything in relation with the knowledge you may have. There is actually a good chance that it will dumb you down as you will make progress irrespective of all the shit you do.

Claiming you are an expert because you took a shortcut to grow muscle is like taking care of a sick person at home and saying that you are now a doctor.

4. They Make Bold Claims Without Backing It Up With Evidence

A lot of these fake gurus at times make claims based on anecdotal evidence. Saying that so-and-so exists because I have experimented with on my clients and seen results are purely anecdotal.  Especially if evidence suggests otherwise! For example, a fitness guru saying cut out carbs because it is making you fat. I cut out carbs from all my client's diets and they lost weight.

The matter of the fact is that the clients lost weight because you cut out a food group altogether resulting in a caloric restriction.  And there is evidence and studies done on weight-loss subjects that when calories and protein are matched, higher and lower carb diets provide similar weight loss results. Higher carb diets slightly outperforming the lower carb diets.

But then if this 'guru' says that it is old science, maybe not a guru after all.

5. They Claim That They Know Some Secrets About Fat Loss Or Muscle Gain

OH, COME ON!

This is physiology and there are no secrets per se. They may have a secret. A secret concoction of drugs that they may be prescribing to their clients! But saying that their secrets go beyond science and are hidden gems is a pile of bullshit.
