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?

    Fat Ectomorph

    So, I have been bulking since September, and my weight has gone from 124 lbs to just under 160. My muscle gains have been great... however, I have grown a big gut/butt.
    I followed the basic rules of eat heavy/lift heavy/sleep heavy. I am pleased with all of my progress but the gut, in fact, it is the only part of me that really looks fat, making a kind of skinny fat look. Hahaha.

    Anyhow, I want to continue bulking, but cleaner. Is there a way to do this without growing the gut more? Also, is there a way of making my midsection smaller, without taking away the fat from everything else (face etc). I'll include some photos after I take them.

    Good job putting weight. What did your diet look like to gain so much weight and what was the time frame?

    I wouldn't worry about it.
    I'm a bit like that myself, but much more extreme, I have a 43 inch wiast lol.
    Just keep bulking if you like the extra strength you have.

    1. Bowl of Oatmeal
    2. 4-5 chicken breast fillets
    3. Chicken Fetucini Alfredo
    4. 4-5 chicken breast fillets
    5. Random

    I also drank a whey protein shake about 3 times a day with a peanut butter sandwich right before bed.

    I also added soda to my diet, but I am removing that now, as I have gained too much fat. I actually originally wanted to gain some fat for my face.

    the chicken fetucini has alot of sodium and some bad fat. i would stick with marinated chicken breasts or maybe add some egg whites and PB on toast.

    i have only been doing my diet for a month or two now but here is what i think you should do:

    -boil eggs on sunday night to last you throughout the whole week (say you have 4-6 hard boiled eggs per day, make about 20)
    -stock up on chicken cutlets and any sort of chicken you like
    -look at the articles, one i believe is titled "how to eat like a bodybuilder." it has alot of marinades and seasoning you can put on your meat
    -for simple chicken cutlets dip the cutlet in breadcrumbs, then a mixture of egg/water in a 2:1 ratio, then back in the breadcrumbs and your ready to fry in oil
    -non fat milk is important to have aswell (for protein shakes)
    -if your still hungry after you meal have some oats or a non fat yogurt

    8-10 chicken breasts a day? That sounds like hell!

    If you think you're gaining too much fat, all you can really do is drop the calories a bit, but not enough so that you aren't gaining weight. Gaining .5-1lb a week shouldn't put on much fat.

    Also make sure your routine is decent.

    It was chicken breast fillets, but it was hell! I ate them with BBQ sauce and Honey Mustard just to get them down!

    Yea, I was gaining like 2-3 lbs a week... way too fast!

    And I won't be still hungry after eating my daily amounts, because I have a very very low appetite. Eating this much to get here was hell, and involved a ton of puking and swallowing. Cutting back would be wonderful!
