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?

    Let's talk about Carbs.

    I dont like sweet potatoes. I am staring at my plate and I cant eat the damn thing, its nasty.

    I like brown rice, I avoid bread because it's my binge trigger.

    Other than fruits and veggies, what else can I eat to get me some good high quality carbs?

    This yam thing is going in the trash!

    Yams are pretty horrible. I'll second oats though.

    I wish I could love them, but I just cant. I really did try.

    Yes to whole wheat pasta! I like to make it with ground turkey with lots of spices and some light tomato sauce.

    I also hate sweet potatoes. On a cut I just eat oats mixed with Natty PB, brown rice with butter, and whole grain pasta.

    Yams are awesome! I like em baked in the oven as chips.
    I've also had them baked whole with the skin on in the oven topped with maple syrup/cinnamon butter. The latter is a bit of a cheat version, but oh so good!

    I would agree with the tuna and chicken. But oats have about 103 grams of carbs per cup according to fitday.
