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?

    Do you guys cheat while "bulking"? I eat just as clean as when I diet...except I increase cals and switch the ratios around......yet sometimes I get the urge to destroy everything in sight.....
    No matter how hard it rains......withstand the pain.

    Hehe,I'm cheating as I type,medium pizza and some Starburst candies.But I haven't cheated like this in 2 weeks.

    I personally wouldn't see a point of cheating that often,maybe once a month.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I tend to cheat maybe once on the wknds when i hang out with friends or if my fiance wants to go out to dinner. It's bad enough that she has to watch me with all these egg whites, tuna, tubs of protein powder, etc. throughout the week.....

    I just try to pick something decently satisfying but not "cheat" so badly that it ruins the whole week. This helps me not fall of the wagon completely by not depriving my body of too much of the bad stuff.

    I actually think it is BENEFICIAL to cheat once or twice a week. It helps your motivation (you get tired of those greens and egg whites quickly), and it helps other people accept the fact that you workout so often (i.e. it helps your case to show them you aren't obsessive-compulsive about bodybuilding - eventhough deep down inside most of the serious BBs are).

    Although i can cheat whenever i want, i tend to only to it once a week if not less.

    Funnily enough, my cheat meals correspond with my aim of cals and fit my ratios!

    Good fat too.....

    Hey bro- I am always bulking!
    I stay strict to my high protein/low carb except one day a week. My wife always hits my weak spot & bakes chocolate chip cookies.....damnitt! Its like kryptonite, when the smell drifts from the oven I get friggin weak in the knees. If you don't go overboard & eat till you puke I feel its o.k. to cheat.

    I'm on NHE...I've been on it for about a month and a half now and getting good results. It's easy to follow...

    I am getting to the point. I only cheated once while on NHE, and it was last sunday. Two pieces of choco-cake and a Harp. Not at the same time.

    I spring back usually in better shape than I was in before I cheated. I dont see any problem in cheating every weekend or every other weed or so.

    Through bulking, I have made some astounding scientific discoveries with respect to anabolic foods.

    Some very anabolic foods are:

    Ice cream
    Peppermint patties
    Fritos (tm)
    Double whoppers
    Pizza
    Cheese fries (with bacon bits and ranch dressing)



    I know Miss Abs is big on this book, but I would NEVER try to bulk on anything resembling a low carb diet.

    You'll note my scientific results above... all of the highly anabolic foods are high in carbohydrates.

    Aw heck. I ate a double decker tuna sandwich with fat free mayo, and a plate of peas w/1 banana for lunch, and I felt bad because I had a protein shake 2 hrs later. Groan.

    Don't read it CD! Low carb bulking would suck!
