One of the best skills you can learn is how to fuel your body well without resorting to starving yourself of dangerous diet products.
 

Find trustworthy sites


If you’re like most people, you probably head to Google to look for information on health and fitness. But what appears at the top of the search results is just the information with the best SEO, not necessarily the correct information.


Choose sites that have scientifically backed information on them such as WebMD, Healthline, or the Department of Health. If you’re unsure of whether an article is trustworthy, look at the sources it is quoting and verify them yourself in other places.

Choose your social media influencers carefully


There are many fantastic fitness influencers out there, who know what they are talking about and give great advice to their followers. Unfortunately, there are a lot of influencers who are also giving out very bad information and pushing items that don’t work or are dangerous in order to sell products. When you start following someone on YouTube, Instagram or TikTok, don’t just take everything they say as truth. Always do other research and remember that many of them get paid to promote products.


Takeaways


To give yourself the very best chance of reaching your health and fitness goals, educating yourself on your body, nutrition and exercise are some of the best things that you can do to make sure you achieve them safely while building great habits for life.
