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?

    Any vegetarians here?

    I'm a vegetarian (no red meat/chicken/fish/etc; eggs and dairy ok) and I find it hard to get my protein while keeping the carbs low while on a cut. I supplement with protein powders but I'd like to keep it a supplement to my meals instead of vice versa.

    Any recommendations? Is anyone else here a vegetarian who has overcome the poor protein:carb ratios in soy, legumes, etc?

    I eat tofu and legumes, nuts etc.
    I don't have a problem maintaining calories, but it's the macro percentages.

    I'd like to follow Built's diet
    Average daily macros:
    163g of protein,
    87g of fat, and
    100g of carbohydrate,
    1,840 calories in total.

    Lifting/HIIT days:
    178g of protein,
    78g of fat, and
    127g of carbohydrate,
    1,919 calories in total.

    Rest/SS Cardio days:
    144g of protein,
    100g of fat, and
    65g of carbohydrate,
    1,735 calories in total.
    but there's no way I can think of to get 100g carbs (or less) with any decent amount of associated protein.

    For example, Lentils:
    1 cup = 230 calories, 40g carbs, 18g protein.

    I guess I'll just have to supplement more protein.
    Any suggestions?

    Getfit, I saw in another thread that you're a vegetarian too...what's your diet like? Macros?

    Why are you so scared of carbohydrate?

    I don't think he's scared of carbohydrate - he's just trying to carb cycle while cutting.

    Thor, you don't NEED to cut carbs to any degree on a cut, I just do this because it's easier to manage hunger.
    Personally, I pretty much live on cottage cheese, and I'm not even a vegetarian.

    I didn't mean that in a literal sense. And the absence of the "s" was not intentional. lol
