The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Help! Low carb dieting made me a carbophobe!

    Let me start off by saying that I've done pretty well with my cut. I went from 204 to 191 in 8 weeks. I ate 4 (every 3 hours) times a day plus a snack. Each day I shot for around 225g protein, 90-100g fats, and I started at 150g carbs in the beginning and tapered it down until I was getting 50g on workout days and at most 30g on off days. I used FitDay to track my diet and it kept me honest!

    I'm tapering my calories back up now, but I don't know how high I should be going! I'm afraid of gaining too much fat in relation to muscle. Are there any recommendations for how many grams of carbohydrates per day to gain muscle? As I understand it, protein and fats intake should be determined by bodyweight (1-1.5g/lb for protein and at least 0.5g/lb for fats), but what about carbohydrates?

    You have to determine what your daily macros should be when taking your basal metabolic rate, then fill in the carbs with the leftover calories.
