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?

    Any current Intermittent Fasting user's in here?

    Hey guys/gals, I'm just wondering if there is anyone currently using this method with success? If so, do you have any pointers for a newbie? Well, a newbie to IF, not to lifting/diet.

    I do a modified IF/ "warrior diet" for part of the week.

    I find that I do have a little more energy during the day on days that I do IF. I always workout on empty

    Then again, I'm not a power-lifter or bodybuilder and I'm not after mass, so take that with a grain of salt. For all purposes here, I'm a tall skinny guy (6'5", 205) and I'm looking to get even leaner.

    My pointer would be don't do a complete water fast. Eat some raw veggies, berries and/or nuts during the day, then have a larger meal later.

    A pure water fast during the day will make you ravenous come meal time and you may not be able to keep from going overboard. trust me on this. A quart of Hagan-Daz is not safe on my IF days!

    HA HA HA, poor Hagan-Daz.. Normally I have an over eating problem, but I haven't felt the need to gorge on this, yet. If I do, I will surely take you up on the grazing during the day advice.

    I've been doing IF for the past couple of days and I was suprised by the amount of energy that I had all day. Actually, prior to, I was exhausted soon after my first meal. I guess it was no BS, but I am struggling to get in good quality food after my fast and then workout. It's hard to get in the amount cals/protein needed in that small window with that meals. Any suggestions?

    I find that it's great for cutting, since come meal time, it is impossible to eat a meal that is very big.

    Get some caffeine.
