It seems like an obvious answer, or is it? It's commonly known that a diet should change if weight gain or weight loss is the objective. But even at that, there's a right way to lose or gain weight, in terms of being efficient. It's astonishing the kinds of answers trainers give to a question like this. The biggest problem I have with their answers quite honestly is how one dimensional and incomplete they are. This is telling in so many ways, none of which are productive.
Hers another question that gets butchered. What if the training objective is to improve endurance, or add hard earned muscle? What should your diet look like then? Are there a certain amount of calories that should be consumed, or should protein be increased? If it's an increase in calories, how much should that be, and if it's an increase in protein, how many grams?
And lastly, what metabolism should be implemented when an individual is glucose intolerant, or diabetic, and what does that diet look like? What exactly is the process for switching metabolisms, and can both metabolisms coexist?
The point here is there are several factors to be considered in order to get the most from a training program, and if a trainer really knows their stuff, they'll be disciplined enough to answer questions with careful thought, and complete knowledge of what they suggest or recommend, otherwise only giving part of the answer is a disservice. Is your trainer legit?
