True.

Pulling someone away from OCD rabbit holes in both the training and dieting realm is the biggest challenge. The average young lifter on any forum is not training hard enough on the basics, is overtraining ineffective exercises, and there is a good chance they are undereating. I see this frequently where a lifter 20 years old is eating 2300 daily calories based on some random BMR calculation.

Common sense is devalued, hard work is minimized, and the focus is almost completely on finding some magical, mystical combination of macronutrients and training exercises/split/sets.

Obviously most of the young trainees can't help it, as this is the information they are supplied.
