Read this before you do something dangerous to your health or credit score.

We aren’t you. We aren’t your doctor. Listen to those people first and foremost. Consult a doctor before starting any fitness program or upping your game in your current one. Don’t follow diet advice (from us or anyone) that will leave you starving or ill, and don’t sign up for more gyms, classes, or other fit commitments than you can afford financially or socially. Ideally, read peer-reviewed scientific studies with large sample sizes before taking trends to heart. We are excited to offer advice and suggestions, but if they don’t work for you, then don’t try them.
