    I have always said that there is a huge psychological component to this industry. Seriously which sounds cooler: "I just eat a balanced diet" or "I am on a low carbohydrate cyclical ketogenic diet"?

    True, it's better to just have a balanced diet than to fuss about how many carbs you are taking in. It's stressful and something I won't really do.
