The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    I just put 1800 calories in a cup and drank it

    I wanted to call this "The Baby Bako Shake", but it doesn't have a minimum of 1/2 cup peanut butter

    1 Serving (= 5 scoops) Chocolate MAXIMUS
    1 cup Oats
    3 cups milk
    3 tbsp Peanut Butter
    2 tbsp Olive Oil

    Tastes like a Resse's Peanut Butter Cup

    Calories: 1867

    Carbs: 179 g
    Protein: 111 g

    I would assume it's a lot thinner and probably easier to drink. I drank it quick so they didn't settle.

    Mmm....so good. You've really got to try the vanilla Maximus. I have the same exact thing except I use vanilla, and it's amazing.

    Neither am I. I can't stand it and a lot of people toss that in theirs. It never seperates with me and it sits at the bottom of the shake.

    Without oats is a lot easier to drink for me at least.

    2500 is such a large number to pass up though.

    Bako-Shakes for me, I'm not too crazy about oats in my shakes.

    Before you go to train everyday, think about the less fortunate and what they would give to just have the opportunity to be training like a madman.

    made one last night, put chocolate protien shake in it and a banana in it too. i substituted the olive oil for flax seed oil too. tasted like a chocolate peanut butter and banana sandwich. the oats were a lil hard to get own but it was still amazing

    this is the Maximus thingy you're using for the scoops right:
    atlargenutrition- products_id=18

    "MAXIMUS Protein Matrix™ consists of ultra-filtrated whey protein concentrate, isolated casein peptides, total milk protein isolates, whey protein isolates, glutamine peptides, and instantized egg albumin to provide an optimal source of protein to fuel massive GROWTH! "

    How did they jam so many calories in there without packing in heavy sugar?

    I think that's the lowest sugar count I've seen for a gainer!

    Or do you think they're lying about the sugar content by saying sucralose/maltodextrin, etc.. doesn't count?

    Haha 2500 in a meal aint so hard.

    All ya need is some cheese bread starters, a big bowl of chili, a 12 oz steak, mashed potatoes with butter, vegetables in oil, and a nice desert

    I've eaten 18 items off the dollar menu in one sitting last year during a cheat meal on my cut. It had to have been close to 7-8,000 cals.
