In today’s episode, I interview fitness coach and researcher Laurin Conlin on the concepts of rigid and flexible restraint when dieting.
Laurin is an IFBB Pro Bikini competitor and the owner of Team LoCoFit. She earned her B.S. from Florida State University and her M.S. from the University of South Florida, both in Exercise Science. She continues to serve as a research assistant to Dr. Bill Campbell’s Physique Enhancement lab at USF.
As part of her Master’s degree, she conducted a study on the effects of following a rigid meal plan versus a more flexible macronutrient-based diet on fat loss outcomes.
In this conversation, we covered a variety of thought-provoking topics, including, but not limited to the following:
