Carbs will make you fat. No wait, complex carbs are the ticket. You need to do hours of cardio to lose weight. Why are you wasting time on a machine? Pick up some weights! Every other day it seems like a new story is being spun on the best way to stay on the straight and narrow path to health and fitness.
Jeanne Murdock, a Cal Poly alumna and personal trainer, became so fed up with the hype that her clients were being fed from the fitness industry, that she wrote a book all about how to sort out what’s legit from what’s bogus. Released in February, Murdock’s fourth book, That’s a Bunch of Quackery! How to Avoid being Pick-Pocketed by Misleading Claims in the Fitness Industry, seeks to embolden readers to choose health and build wealth by acting according to evidence-based claims, not fear, while keeping a sense of humor.
