The Dunning–Kruger effect

The Dunning–Kruger effect 

This phrase was new to me when I heard it on a podcast recently. So I consulted google for a definition. 

You are not an expert

The Dunning–Kruger effect is acognitive bias manifesting in unskilled individuals suffering from illusory superiority, mistakenly rating their ability much higher than is accurate. This bias is attributed to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their ineptitude.[1]

This problem is augmented by appeal to authority. I recall the disagreement between Lustig and Aragon!

Good to see you blogging. After all those years I came back to bodyweight HIT twice a week James Steele style and real food, although the reasoning is different. I think I "cracked" the exercise part of the equation, but the diet...Matt Stone approach probably doesn't work for me. I look a bit like your smooth before photo from rippedbody transformation:D
