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?

    guys,
    been training for neerly 4 years....was round 130, now 200.....

    last year i did my first bulk and got to 200, then wen i cut i lost 10kg and got down to roughly 175...

    i am now bulking again but have reached the 200 pound mark but am not eating the amount of carbs i was last year, but more protein.....

    do u think i need to eat more carbs to gain the weight, or will eating a healthy diet with a good balance be enough?

    for example during work hours i was eatin last bulk 350-400 carbs a day, i went on carbs...and about 40 protein, now im eating about 110 protein and 240 carbs, just its alot cleaner food and im not force feeding myself....

    i wont to keep gaining weight coz i dont wont 200 pounds to be my platue

    I wont u 2 lrn to spell.

    But seriously, you need carbs, proteins and fats to gain weight. There is no reason to stop at 200 if you don't want to. Just keep eating. Its all about total calories anyway, not just how much protein you eat, though it is good to get a lot of it no doubt.

    You were only eating 40g of protein? And now only 110? You need to get atleast 1g of protein per pound of food.

    give this a read.
