Figuring out the "right" way to eat and exercise for your personal goals can feel daunting. The Health and Fitness Industry is kind of like a Gossip Magazine. Sweeping conclusions are publicized without legit scientific research and there's always new trendy miracle supplements, diets, or workouts that claim to be better than the last. When searching for answers, it's easy to get sucked into a tunnel of try this and don't do that. How confusing! I get it. Even as a personal trainer, I too can get sucked into the latest fitness trends. This is why it's so important to find influencers you trust! I hope to be one of them for you :). Fortunately, that doesn't mean there's no sound information

I'm breaking down the good, the bad, and the tasty for picking the best protein bars.
