I agree with you, but it's not to discredit that all of their information is completely false? Like MissFitandNerdy's adaptogenic lattes are pretty stupid but her beginner's series is actually really good solid information.
Pollock uses studies that have a bit of bias to support her claims but on the general she does give a good starting place. Example, intermittent fasting doesn't work to help reduce bloating for me but she claimed it does. I also have blood sugar so not eating in the morning makes me extremely light-headed. It didn't work for me? I took the information with caution and common sense. But her glute building video is very informative and on-point.
Lol you gave no reasons why MariFitness is not science? Wtf? I've never heard anything that woman said that didn't have truth to it. Her entire fitness journey was about educating herself, so that's what she preaches.
If you're siding with Natacha but not the others, the papers she selects are not always substantial or studies that are done well, for example her recent video on gut health wasn't a good picture of the state of the human side of research. Science isn't fact, it's interpretable.
You shouldn't and you also honestly can't believe everything you watch/listen to... But that's a given. Giving these suggestions to OP doesn't mean "believe everything they say", it means "these are a good starting point if you're looking for 'female fitness youtubers'". These aren't experts, they're just influencers trying their best to spread knowledge. They aren't perfect, but they're a starting point. And nobody should take everything they say as true as with anything else in life. Use your own judgement.
If OP and in general most people want a scientific approach to fitness, let me know. There are a few great books I can recommend, but they're a bit heavy.
Good comment giving an alternative perspective, don’t know why you’re being downvoted. I think the answer for the o.p is no there isn’t anybody, perhaps bloggers are better than bloggers for this.
Yeah I'm not sure, I'm confused a bit too. Nobody's perfect and science isn't perfect was sort of my point. Thank you though!
Well you shouldn't get downvoted for that.
Thanks for understanding what I meant. :)
I'd love to hear your book recs!
I know people don't like Buttermore as much according to this thread, but all the information that made her popular as a science-oriented fitness youtuber came from pretty much one book (and she didn't hide it either): The Women's Book. It's essentially a training and nutrition guide meant for women based off of science, there's a LOT of amazing stuff in there but it's also a lot to digest. There's honestly nothing else like it, and I'll dramatically tell you it will change your training if not your life.
Otherwise Bret Contreras' Strong Curves official book is also generally science oriented, it's still a thick read around female-specific training, but less detailed and more general + beginner-friendly than the women's book. A lot of people know about the programs but not the original book.
I just bought the vol 3 (ch 8-11) of that book today. I'm hesitant to get the whole $50 book, because much of it is going to be too basic for me (I'm a physiology professor- hence why I was asking for your recs)
I do like that she was honest about using that book as the major basis for that whole series she did, but I wish she was more OBVIOUS about it. It's easy for her viewers to miss that short little thank you at the beginning of the video and think she's doing all that research.
Can you tell me how many chapters are in it? Trying to decide if it's worth the whole thing, even though I'll be skipping a lot of the early stuff. I also am impatient about waiting for him to release each section.
“science isn’t fact” ????
Yeah. A lot of experiments have bias and poor experimental design methodology. That's why you see two papers both published but giving conflicting results (I.e. Chocolate is good for you vs chocolate is bad for you - very broad topic but you get the idea). This is extremely common... Well everywhere. Especially in nutritional sciences.
