I have decided that if I do 2 types of Podcasts.
1. Nice friendly, positive podcasts that are geared to helping you get something in life. Call these the "HappyCoach Mike" episodes.
I love doing these episodes because I can share really cool things with you and I have a great time doing it.
2. Other times, I am a little ticked off at the my industry and want to tell you about it. Call these the "Grumpy Mike" episodes. In these episodes I am like an exterminator poking through the cellars of fitness and nutrition, looking for bad advice, made up crap and other marketing gimmicks that only cause you pain and waste your time.
Actually, I get most of these articles in my email, so I don't have to look. This is how bad the problem really is.
I get the idea that putting someone else down doesn't make me look better. I learned that in 1st grade. Then 2nd grade, then 3rd grade etc... you get the point.
The truth of the matter is that some people really say some amazingly stupid things. Unbelievably stupid things.
I thought as the 21 century began, I could cruise through the remaining years of my life enjoying how far we come as a society. The last couple of years have brought to my attention how much more work needs to be done . This is especially true for health and fitness.
So when I come across shockingly bad or generic advice, where I used to be able to ignore it, it now makes me mad.
This is just me.
So welcome to the most generic, thoughtless article ever put on the internet.
