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?

    Cheap diet

    hey all,
    I want to eat a balanced diet for maintainance calories (3,000 - 3,200).

    Could you suggest some cheap diets that don't include simple carbs or fatty greasy hamburger meat?

    I have a stash of multivitamins, so for now, they may replace some forms of veggies and fruits.

    thanks,
    poor ol' boy (for the next 2 months)

    Cheap cuts of beef (ex flank steak) are very good, but require a lot of cooking/marinading time. I like to cook whole chickens - if you don't want the skin, just take it off.
    Generally, the more work you're willing to put into preparing the meal, the cheaper it will be.
