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?

    Last 20 pounds Grr!

    Whats up everyone i have been on a diet for a year and a half i've lost around 95 pounds im currently at 205 was 300 maybe more not sure :P

    Anyway i am still losing but i find it getting really slow, Its took forever to lose my last 20 pounds. Not sure if i need to switch what im doing cause i would love to lose 20 more pounds before spring :P

    Here is what i do and eat in a day...

    Breakfast = powerbar and nonfat sugar free capachino = 320 cal 11g protein
    Lunch = Tuna on wheat and some pretzels = 600 cal 52g protein
    Dinner = kinda depends but allways white meat and wheat products and average = 1000 cal 30g protein

    And i usually have a bowl of cereal (300cal) before bed

    I lift weights twice a week for an hour each time and go for bike rides atleast twice a week and between 8-12 miles each time.

    I keep telling myself it would prolly be good for me to eat somethign bad everyonce in awhile or maybe just eat more for a few weeks then go back down, But its tough im trained to eat like this now and scared to eat something bad for me lol!

    Or just stay the course...

    Also thought about switching it up by lifting more and eating more to try and build muscle...

    Heres some pics just cause im proud lol!

    Holy $hit, dude! Very impressive.

    #1 - stop eating before bed. If you need a snack, make it protein.
    #2 - eat more often 5-6x per day. That'll help get your metabolism kicking again.
    #3 - get more protein in general

    If you're still making prgress, keep doing what you're doing. It's working. The last 20 WILL BE THE HARDEST! Stay focused. You might want to add a 3rd day of weights. More exercise will definately help.

    Very impressive. Keep after it!

    Thanks.

    Ya i know the cereal is a bad idea but its so yummy lol!

    Kinda torn some days i think i should stop cardio and up my calories by a 1000 a day and lift weights every other day.

    210 of muscle would be cool just not sure how to go about it since i've been in diet mode for so long.

    Add protein shakes between meals maybe....

    Keep your goal in mind. Whatever it may be, stay focused on that. Too many peoiple waiver in the middle or near the end of things. Stay focused. Once you reach that goal, set another one and go attack it. Don't pull yourself in 2 directions.

    Protein shakes in between meals is a good idea. Also, if you like the cereal, eat it for breakfast.

    Increase the weight lifting to at least 3 days if you can.

    I just want to chime in and say congrats because you've come along way. Nearly 100lbs lost already is no small feat and many who start on a diet at that weight find it hard to keep with it. Keep up the good work.

    That is very good!

    If you really want to lose that last 20 lbs. Some suggestions would be:

    1.) eat 6 small meals a day (as rhodehouse already said)
    2.) workout with weights 3x a week instead of 2 (as slim said)
    3.) you could do more cardio, but it's not necessary
    4.) Add healthier foods/remove unhealthy foods - add oatmeal, nuts and other healthy fats like flaxseed oil or olive oil, chicken, turkey, tuna, TONS of veggies, etc...
    5.) Eat 300 calories lower then your maintainence each day.

    That outta whip you right into the lean shape your after. Then, once you get down to your goal weight/bf % you can start slowly adding on lean muscle mass by keeping your diet the same as far as foods go, but increasing the calories to 300 calories above your maintainence.
