Too Much Information: Who to Trust?

We’ve looked at Achievemephobia and at <the fear of failure>. Now let’s look at what to do with the information overload.

What is it?

Simply put, information overload is when there is too much information – and it seemingly is conflicting – for the brain to process.

A good example is eggs. One study shows that eggs are harmful for you because of ABC reason. The next study show that eggs are actually good for you because of XYZ reason.

Which do you believe? I personally believe neither, and I’ll explain why.

Who to trust?

This is just my personal opinion, but trust nobody fully when it comes to nutrition. Personal nutrition is just that – personal. There is no “One Size Fits All” approach. What may work for my body may not work for yours. It’s trial and error.

Now, I’m not advocating a blind following of any one thing. Do your homework. Test the theories. Take notes. Talk to your doctor. That’s how you find what works for you.
