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?

    Marks First PSMF cut

    Well, the time has come that I became sick of my fatarse.

    Short story: I weighed 186 after UD2.0, then 205 after Bill Starrs 5x5 where it went to hell afterwards. I became a EMT, ate like crap, and went out drinking pretty frequently with guys from work since I graduated H.S. with half of them. I still lifted heavy and ate a lot. I currently sit at 250lb. Shame eh? Been saying for 5 months I would get rid of it. Figured the time was now.

    Anywho, I didn't want to do UD2.0 again, bought Rapid Fat Loss by Lyle McDonald, read it, and was intrigued. I know I slow cut would be recommended, but they drive me insane. I prefer a faster, more intense approach because I seem to stick to it.

    Please offer suggestions, as it is the first time I am attempting this diet.

    I'm aiming for 240g protein per day with 10g fish oil for the EFA's, and plenty of fibrous vegetables. I'm spliting this into 4 meals a day, with lifting 3 times a weak with low volume and easy cardio.

    Today, Day 1

    Today went well. Not a bad workout and I wasn't going insane like yesterday. I'm down 6lbs from yesterday, assumed 98% of that is water weight. Also, tuna mixed with soy sauce doesn't take all that great.

    I'm up to day 4 of this and I must say it's going a lot easier than I expected.
    Decided to weigh myself for ****-n-giggles and I'm down 8 lbs since Sunday. Doesn't mean much but I like to watch. The hunger pains aren't bad either.

    I just ordered some calcium and magnesium to supplement my lack of dairy, along with Casein protein powder. Hopefully it will be here in a few days. I plan to go to the store later today and pick up some cottage cheese. Need to go to the butcher and get a nice 5lb bag of chicken and some more beef.

    I'm loving it to be honest. The run didn't happen because I had class from 12-3, started running by 4pm after lifting. By this time I was so hungry I couldn't stand the pain longer to finish my run. If I didn't have class at 6pm I would have had a meal first, but I thought I may not have enough time. I could see myself eating like this most of the week when done so I can stick to a low bf.

    I was down 12 lbs since I started, then my friend came back from his Ireland/London trip and it all went to hell.

    Tuesday night into Wednesday turned into a drunkfest and a strip club because we didn't want to stop drinking after bars closed. I held a conversation with one of the strippers for a half-hour and found out she is a biochemistry major. Then Wednesday night I had White Castle, and was disgusted. I then decided to take this more hardcore than I was. I'm going to be under 200lbs once my sisters wedding comes (end of October).
