New diet and exercise trends are always coming out, with some being better than others, but hype from marketing and social media can make even you feel like you’re missing out on even the worst examples.
The fear of missing out on the latest trends can cause you to program hop, or abandon a sound program for an ineffective one. There’s always that sense that the grass is greener on the other side, plus you wouldn’t want to miss out on a potential new discovery.
Thankfully, taking a fundamental approach to fitness can go a long way to help you avoid diet and exercise FOMO. Not only does a fundamental approach help you identify which trends are over-hyped and worthless, but also which one’s may help you take your fitness to the next level.
