Since being a PT I've developed several diet plans for clients. Not everyone is a competitive athlete and I've learned most can't stand repetitiveness. Therefore I've created some pretty cool tools and spreadsheets where I've created food groups and portion sizes. Where each food in each group with its individual portion size gives almost identical macro breakdown. After all my hard work about 30% won't even bother using it, and those that do constantly ask questions about alternatives, or can I eat this or that. I've done my absolute best to give variation but still I get bombarded by nonsense. It appears to me people want to eat what the hell they want and still get the results they desire. I'm at the end of my tether. I can't be rude, they're paying clients, but I really want to respond as follow... Client. Can I eat food X? Me. Is food X in the plan? Client. No Me. Then NO you can't eat it Do other trainers suffer this plight? And how do you deal with it?
