Nowhere else is this more apparent than in the endless debates on what constitutes healthy behaviors such as diet and exercise. Are you doing keto or intermittent fasting? Is red meat good or bad? Are calories the only thing that matters or not? Are you a runner or a lifter? Do you do CrossFit or are you a bodybuilder?
