  • Whenever you need some solid information about fitness, Rather watch Ted x vids rather than a phd who has been sponsored to speak like a puppet by a supplement company

  • 6:45
    I’d like to differ with wearing a bunch of sweaters, running and biking hard for an hour having my heart rate above 190 on avg.
    You lose weight quickly m8


  • Anyone who knows anything about creatine knows that ‘Myth’ number 5 is a gross oversimplification.

    Creatine CAN cause dehydration and cramps IF you don’t increase the amount of water you drink to offset the new requirements of cell volumisation. Simply saying no and then citing the study he did is very unhelpful, misleading and confusing to some people.

  • RP completely overwhelmed me. I thought my day was ruined if I messed up on my times and macros. My husband would be like look at your day of eating as a whole. You are super healthy. It just made me feel bad cause I wanted everything perfectly. Counting calories/macros now and my life is happier ����

  • References please! I am not sure about this data at all!! This should not be on the internet because it is giving so many people false information! This is a promotion advert they want you to buy there supplements!! Please don’t listen to this go to a different you-tuber or web page which is not one which is owned by a big company or sponsored!! Hate it when people do this!!

  • HEY Sean, are all calories created equal? This is getting kinda confusing because i recently read some articles saying that calories are not created equal.

  • Yeah this guy is pushing protein supplements. Jeff Nippard proves the anabolic window is a myth, however this guy is lying to you to get you to buy more protein.

  • Undebunked myth number 12: Lifting stunts growth?

    This question always poses as a threat to many newbies or teenagers, among those unnecessarily questions, this 1 should be primary focus.

  • I get why everyone is smelling someone trying to sell something but very little of this is wrong, the caffeine thing is way off though, it certainly is a diuretic, it will not however DEHYDRATE you since the water the coffee is made with is FAR greater than what you lose due to the caffeine. The diet thing was not “wrong” per say since they did say it was reducing calories that lead to fat loss but it was presented in a misleading way, protein is NOT a driver of fat loss as they were trying to say, it can help it however because it satiates hunger and therefore can help reduce caloric intake which IS the driver of fat loss and they did say as much to be fair but said that in with a bunch of other mumbojumbo about protein. are they clearly talking about mostly protein related stuff to sell products? Yes. But most of this is spot on so quit whining lol

  • Since you just have a simple way to explain things, can you do a video on weight loss as a female when it pertains to the female monthly cycle. I’ve heard so many different things

  • Great Video Sean. Quick question. I do Intermittent Fasting. So I get all my calories postworkout in the late afternoon/early evening. They say that High Glycemic carbs are best to spike your insulin bc of being in that fasted state. Should all my carbs be High Glycemic or mix it up with lower Glycemic carbs? If so, what ratio would you recommend?

  • Hey guys, just a quick note to let you know that I do my very best to respond to the questions that are posted here, but YouTube doesn’t notify me of everything that is posted and with the hundreds of videos on this channel I can’t possibly keep track of them all. If you don’t receive a reply to your post, it most likely means that I simply didn’t see it. If you need a guaranteed way to get in touch with me, please join the Facebook page and post your question there: https://www.facebook.com/SeanNalewanyjOfficial

  • You are honestly the one of the few REAL people in the fitness industry. You speak nothing but the simple, unfilitered truth! Will definitely be marathoning all yout videos after my exams because Netflix needs to pick up its game.

    Also, I wanted to ask you about tracking sugar alcohols. Is it true that you have to subtract them from total carbs to get your net carbs for the day?

  • 1. Protein doesn’t hurt kidneys
    2. It doesn’t decalcify bones
    3. Lactate acid doesn’t cause soreness
    4. Fewer calories = lose weight but only if protein is the same
    5. Creatine doesn’t dehydrate you
    6. Women can lift heavy—they won’t just magically bulk
    7. Artificial sweeteners aren’t dangerous in normal amounts
    8. You can’t counter a burger with a salad/also see “low calories = lose weight”
    9. If you’re gonna have a protein shake a day, have it after working out (paraphrased)
    10. “Caffeine is not a diuretic”
    11. Most weight loss is in the kitchen

  • Myth #1: Protein is bad for your kidneys
    Myth #2: Protein makes your bones brittle
    Myth #3: Lactic acid makes your muscles sore
    Myth #4: There’s a “best diet” for fat loss
    Myth #5: Taking creatine dehydrates you
    Myth #6: Women automatically get huge from lifting weights
    Myth #7: Artificial sweeteners are not safe
    Myth #8: It’s just food quality that matters, not total calories
    Myth #9: You have to have protein immediately after workout
    Myth #10: Caffeine is a diuretic
    Myth #11: Exercise is the best for weight loss

  • Exactly why I subscribed straight to the point and you can just tell by the way you talk you know what your talking about simply awesome bro love the vids

  • There are benefits to intermittent fasting/time restricted eating, so hand waving away the anabolic window question isn’t good enough

  • A few caveats on artificial sweeteners and protein shakes.

    1) Artificial sweeteners have been increasing linked to metabolic problems. Not cancer, and maybe better then better sugar, but worse than natural food. Avoid junk food and drink water.

    2) There are drawbacks to protein shakes, namely cost and nutritional quality. And if you eat a diet rich in protein, you will be constantly supplying your muscles with protein. Food spends about 10 hours being digested, and it takes 24 to 48 hours to rebuild muscles after a workout. No room for a post workout shake to make a difference.

  • Wow! This is a pretty odd blend of “bro” and real science. Performing a short term study on bone density? Interesting, inconclusive too. Going back to the calorie topic and disregarding nutrient density for body composition? Yeah…

  • This is a very dangerous video for public health and somebody should take it down!

    Here is an actual study of the effect such supplements can have on you if taken recklessly, which shows that “long-term consumption of a high-protein diet could be linked with metabolic and clinical problems, such as loss of bone mass and renal dysfunction”.

    Cuenca-Sánchez, M., Navas-Carrillo, D. & Orenes-Piñero, E. Controversies Surrounding High-Protein Diet Intake: Satiating Effect and Kidney and Bone Health. Adv. Nutr. 6, 260–266 (2015)

  • This is so informative! And definitely not just a big supplements advertisement. I’m so glad this highly qualified professional is saying there isn’t really an anabolic window, but that I should take protein right after working out just…well…because. So nice to see quality information from fitness professionals that haven’t sold out in any way!! I mean, surely he’s just aiming to project science-based information with no financial motive at all. Thanks doc! I can’t wait to see what comes next from this fine channel. I bet it’ll be a video on the effectiveness of BCAAs. Because they totally work. So excited. I’m gonna go hit some Glutamine. I wonder where I should buy it…oh what?!?! A link just below for Bodybuilding Signature Supplements?! How amazing is that!!!

  • Completely agree on the weight loss and constant protein intake point, it’s my exact experience as well I will say though that a low carb diet will make you less hungry than a low fat diet and hence it may be a bit easier to maintain a sub maintenance caloric intake:)

  • Don’t believe the creatine one. The rest I believe. Creatine definitely dehydrates me, especially feel it in the summer. How can it not, if it is sucking the water into your muscles? Treat all scientific wisdom around diet with caution; it’s not as if “science” has been consistent is it.

  • I started tracking calories on an app and that has been a real eye opener. I started looking at my daily intake and making wise decisions. I also started learning how to use calorie densities to manage my hungry times as well as balancing out my macros. Since then I have straightened out my dietary habits and voila, the weight started to slowly go down. Who would have thought. So glad more people are talking about this.

  • so on the last tip you dont take into consideration the hormone balance of your body and the overall raise in metabolism from exercise. a balance of both is key. obviously your diet influences your hormones as well and a caloric deficit is what you are aiming for but a early morning fasted workout will burn fat directly as you will be in ketosis

  • I still kind of believe the quality of food “myth” I went from eating like 4,000 calories of plants and vegetables (I ate a shit ton, never wasn’t eating really) weighed about 170lbs and was lean. Now I get about 2,600 and ended up at 220 (not so lean) lol.

  • It’s also essential that immediately following your workout you kneel down to Jesus and pray for those sweet gainz, because there is no evidence that doing so will harm you.

  • Excellent segment. The only myth I would take issue with is the 1st one you mention. Yes, for bodybuilders, protein intake isn’t much of an issue, but for the average person, too much protein, not enough other nutrients and dehydration can indeed damage the kidneys via rhabdomyelisis. Hydrate and eat a balanced diet. The rest will take care of itself.

  • Interesting video. But i actually had some positive experience with few natural test boosters, that mainly gave me positive mood/motivation and lotssss of libido. That directly didn’t gave me any muscle gains, but overall more enjoyable workouts ( motivation and positive mood).  About creatine: creatine monohydrate gives me always a lot of bloat and need to pee way too much. It seems other forms of creatine like hcl don’t give such “sides” and are overall for me a better choice.  Maybe not for the test booster category, but i’ve done bloodwork at my sports doc with PES Erase…. and hell it worked halfing my estrogen. ( which was too high)

  • High protein low carbohydrates is another pre-contest diet strategy… and the offseason higher amounts of carbohydrates for training energy!

  • I like all the people with their PhDs saying he is wrong. He is actually referencing studies from not his company or bodybuilding such as the rat study and artificial sweeteners is from a cancer institute in britain.

  • Back in the mid 90s Jose Antonio in an article for one of the muse mags wrote a very critical article on the “Zone Diet” by Dr Barry Sears. I adopted that diet and lost 30 lbs in 6 weeks. My advice is to take anything he says with a grain of salt.

  • Although all the points Jose raises her are fundamentally proven by science. Its worth noting that your body is not to bothered about ‘mans’ scientific opinion. Also scientific understanding,  like the wind, can change very quickly. BUT I would disagree with the statement that calories matter when it comes to over eating on whole food. I would say if you live on a whole food plant based diet then you do not need to consider calories because….I reckon you wouldn’t be able to over eat 5Ks worth of plant…that’s a lot of plant. It only really processed food that open the door to this kind of consumption. In summary, if your carrying a lot of extra fat I doubt you gained it on Yams and Kale.

  • I actually laugh when people tell me these things that I need to do with my diet, even like the best personal trainers at my gym still think it yet I’m still the volunteer, oh dear.

  • More videos like this please, so many “fittness” youtubers just preach the complete opposite it’s annoying. Also, not sure if I just missed it but do you have videos on lifting techniques like for beginners? ��

  • Out of suject but I have a suggestion for a future video, your thoughts about beachbody? It’s everywhere and I have been approached to become a coach. When I learned that you don’t even need to have education related to health and fitness it blew my mind! �� I now see this company all about making money first instead of changing people’s life. Just putting that out there if you feel comfortable talking about a big company like this! Love ��

  • EXACTLY! I get these types of questions regularly.
    There is no magic. You have to listen to your body and take a holistic approach.
    There is no one size fits all.
    I am going to share this with my tribe.

  • Hey Sean do you have any literature recommendations without all the nutrition fluff? Something that is straight forward and real. Cause its so hard to see trough all this fluff. There is just too much.

  • Lol I work at Whole Foods and legit so many people give their celery to and pay the juice bar for them to juice the celery for them it’s ridiculous

  • Iv never heard anything about caffeine being a diuretic. I have heard of coffee or other things being a diuretic. Its the source containing the caffeine that people believe is a diuretic. At least in my experience.

  • A lot of negative comment on this such informative video. This guy knows what he’s talking about. I have done alot of research for around 3/4 years. He’s ticking all them ����.

  • High protein low carbohydrates is another pre-contest diet strategy… and the offseason higher amounts of carbohydrates for training energy!

  • What about hormones?? So u are saying that carb timing doesnt matter??. I dont think so as carbs elevate insulin that stops fat loss.. Otherwise we would eat potato chips and soda just to take the needed calories..

  • So like when my mom says “oh em gee you have bananas?!? You know that causes belly fat right, don’t eat too many!!!” And then it starts the argument of, “well mom, if I eat 20 a day then yes it just might cause belly fat, but not because it’s a banana but because I ate 20 of them. 1 a day won’t kill me” and then she argues me into a corner until I just stop answering haha no wonder I was so confused about food until I found your channel a couple years ago and BAM life was in colour again!!!

  • Oh okay; I see (I suppose).

    It’s not based on what you eat, but solely on the number of protein and carbohydrate intake. If I consume more fats than protein, then the result will be me gaining a more fat mass than muscle mass.

    So, it doesn’t really matter what you eat? I can eat junk food from time to time?

  • So it is basically calorie in vs calorie out. So you can eat whatever you want to eat until you are not exceeding calories that you are supposed to eat and consuming enough protein to build muscle. 

  • The high protein while maintaining your calories is so true. I follow IIFYM, but my macros are flexible since I just set a level of protein and calories and avoid going below the protein threshold or above the caloric one. I got the leanest I’ve been in my life by eating a bunch of sweets and junk but making sure I eat a minimum of x grams of protein per day.


  • Started by promoting protein consumption, then creatine and then mentioning the anabolic window. All that is advertisement, commercial for pre and post workout supplements.

  • Exactly why I subscribed straight to the point and you can just tell by the way you talk you know what your talking about simply awesome bro love the vids

  • Sean, I’m having trouble convincing people that some of the stuff they are doing is not worth their effort. Could you please provide the sources for the studies you cite (specifically myth #1)? 

  • Not sure where the negative comments are coming from.
    Everything he has stated is completely accurate, and more to the point, common sense.

  • Hey Sean. I have a question. If I have hit macro minimums, and micro nutrients, then what does it matter if i hit my surplus with 500 calories of ice cream or 500 calories of vegetables?

  • I used to be a competitive cyclist and all the racers I knew well who took creatinine had cramping problems and the guys who didn’t take it had little to no muscle cramps. The cramps actually caused some guys to be cramped up in the bushes during a race on several occasions which never happened to the non creatinine guys. It’s not very scientific but it’s real world experience from multiple athletes.

  • The celery juice one has so many rules to it to “work”. Or so that’s going around in the groups I’m in. I’m like I’ll just drink my water and coffee and poop later.

  • I wish there was a love button. Always appreciate you talking about these topics. And wtf is this celery juice thing? Missed this trend completely.

  • A lot of these myths are a trickle down from the competitive bodybuilders… frequent feeding or pulse feeding…. is a pre-contest diet approach…. it has no basis for the wannabe beginners!!!

  • But won’t carbs go to boost insulin, which blocks fat burning? So you want the longest period of no glucose in your bloodstream so that your body must turn to ketosis and burn fat. The best time to do this would be overnight (because obviously you’re not going to eat anything for 8-12 hrs)..

  • Agreed! It would be great to have a video along the lines of ‘meal prep for one, or cooking for two but prepping for one’. I train and so does my partner, but we always eat together. I prefer a set meal plan whereas he doesn’t..itntba massive issue but I really want to achieve my goals without buying double the amount on a food shop. I’m sure other women in relationships feel this way too, and like you say the market for diets is very over saturated with ‘solutions’

  • I’m a woman and I want to get big and muscular. I don’t know why my arms are so weak though. I can squat decently but I have a lot of trouble with pushups and bicep curls. I know it’s normal for wemon to be not as strong, but I don’t feel any contraction or burning while lifting with my arms regardless of the weight

  • Hey guys, just a quick note to let you know that I do my very best to respond to the questions that are posted here, but YouTube doesn’t notify me of everything that is posted and with the hundreds of videos on this channel I can’t possibly keep track of them all.

  • Really glad in unbiased source is giving us nutrition information that is all based on multiple peer reviewed studies by other academics instead of one or two he did in his basement. (Most of this is false. Especially the stuff about protein.)

  • I love these videos, I’m thinking about switching my major from Kinesiology to Nutrition. So if you would please continue these videos I would absolutely love it.

  • At our gym, I am the Nutrition & Wellness Consultant. A lot of our members ask me questions about these myths! My answers are basically the same as yours lol
    I do push more of a plant-based approach with diets, at least to make sure they are getting in their fruits, veggies, and grains in for the day. But I tend to tell my clients the truth and try and have them see the reality that at the end of the day all that matters is how much/little you ate and that will determine if you are gaining/losing weight.

  • Love that you tackled these myths! Its very true, especially when you get stuck on fad diets or mealplans.. u kind of forget the basics of how to eat healthy and make a LIFESTYLE change. I finally after 3 yrs of riding this “weightloss” journey realized 1. Its not a journey! Is a lifestyle 2. Ask for help! Real help!! My sister is a registered dietitian and has been for 5 yrs. I never wanted to ask her for help because to me she’s nvr been over weight a day in her life, i felt she couldnt relate. Little did i know when i reached out, she really helped me out. We figured out i wasnt eating enough at all to sustain my 2 a day workouts and thats why the scale wasnt moving����. Seems pretty obvious now, but i never wouldve of known had i not asked!

  • Wow yes!!! I needed to hear this, too many fitness myths going around and it literally makes us go crazy and have a bad relationship with food!

  • Fitness people like to turn everything into a controversy… all competitor bodybuilders have a pre-contest diet approach…they need to minimize subcutaneous fat and water retention… it has to be time for the competition date… because it’s a temporary condition… right after competition they go right back on their offseason diet!

  • I have had bariatric surgery… My serving and calories are so much different than others. I have to eat small 6 meals a day. I’ve always still copied diet and been confused why am i not losing weight. Your videos always helped me out ���� Thank you! Its changed my thinking and helped me mentally ��

  • I had to pause this video and run, just getting to the end. Clearly eat a keto diet and its been good for me. I lost weight and was getting asked lost of questions from friends. I always just tell people the best diet is the one you can stick to, many way to lose weight if thats your goal.

  • I remember being college aged and all the girls eating only grapefruit and cottage cheese to try and lose the freshman 15. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. ��

  • Caffeine is certainly a diuretic for me. I can drink a couple of large glasses of water and not need to pee at all for a few hours, but drink a caffeinated beverage of even half the size and I’m pissing like a fountain.

  • I tried RP, and I can tell you, as a PCU nurse working 13 hour shifts… it is just not practical! I don’t have time to peelet alone eat!
