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?

    Please review my fitday journal!

    Hi. So, today is officially the first day I had all my food planned out, and I stuck to it. The only point where I deviated, was I drank a half gallon of skim milk whereas I planned for about 5 cups! I feel like I need to drink more water, though.

    Link to my diet for today!

    Fat's a little low. How much do you weigh?

    And you definately need to start eating some vegetables.

    Looks pretty good, I agree with Bako, I am cutting on about 2,100 cals with almost the same amount of fat so I would up that possibly. Whats your weight and goals?

    My main goal is to gain muscle. I would say for every 8 pounds I gain, I am fine with 1 pound of it being fat.

    Do I really need more veggies!? I never really figured they were good for much, assuming you can get your vitamins and such elsewhere. What would you suggest?

    Okay, I thought fat was only supposed to be around 30% of your calories...am I mistaken? I'll gladly eat more fat! I feel like im eating cotton balls!

    Read some of the stickies, mainly regarding basing your diet on percentages.

    Built cutting sticky is good.

    I woke up this morning with some serious wood. As I stood in front of the mirror, I decided I may be happier if my goal were to overall become leaner. I would rather be skinnier and have more definition.

    That said, what happens when you don't get enough fat? What if you get just enough Omega-3 (as in good fat) and no more fat at all, even with a ton of protein?

    If you in a calorie deficit, you will lose weight.

    I guess what I would really like to know is, will I lose a ton of muscle if I:
    -Hit the gym hard
    -Eat plenty of protein (1.5g or more per lb)
    -Eat below maintenance calories
