Well here’s a study that proves what most of us already know: Social media influencers give bad diet and fitness advice eight times out of nine, research reveals

“A study by a team at University of Glasgow found that just one out of nine leading UK bloggers making weight management claims actually provided accurate and trustworthy information.”

I feel like most of us in the CrossFit world can see through the fake stuff pretty easily, but it can be difficult to know who to trust for any advice online.

If you follow anyone, including this blog, you should always take time to read the full articles and maybe do a bit of your own research from time to time. It’s easy to just read the headlines or see the pictures, but if you’re not getting the full story it is very easy to misunderstand the message. Or, if you’re never doing some extra research you may not know if the information is even valid.

Make sure you know your sources and beware of any “influencers” that make things seem too good to be true - they probably are!
