In yesterday’s update I talked about the importance of eating a healthy diet (if you missed it, you may want to give it a quick read). I received a fair amount of email in response to that article. The comments ranged from (I’m paraphrasing) “Duh! Everyone knows that!”, to “Wow, no wonder I’m having trouble making any progress!” 🙂

Those of us who are knowledgeable about the importance of a healthy diet may have lost some perspective. Familiar dietary concepts that are almost second nature to you and me are totally alien to many. The level of ignorance (I assure you that I’m not using that term pejoratively) displayed by the average person when it comes to what constitutes a healthy diet is unfortunate. When I think back to the time prior to my transformation (and even the early days of my transformation) I had absolutely no clue. I, like many others, once thought a healthy fat loss diet was a huge caloric deficit, skipping meals, abdominal crunches, low fat foods, blah blah blah…

The aim of this site and the JSF Forum is to dispel misinformation and provide free information that will not only get you looking good, but will also allow you to be more healthy and energetic than you may have thought possible. I want you bodybuilding and fat loss vets out there to take a step back and remember that we all had to start somewhere.

I appreciate that so many of you on the forum show patience and understanding with newcomers; by doing so you are providing people with the knowledge that will enable them to quite literally change their lives. Further, every person who becomes educated about proper diet and fat loss techniques is one less person out there spewing nonsense and bad information. Obesity is an epidemic in many parts of the world, and I believe that education is the first step in combating this growing problem. Get educated and then spread the word!
