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?

    My cut program (30 days). Goal: no catabolism.

    Pre-breakfast 40min cyclette. My goal: no catabolism.
    4 days every week.

    Male, 28 years, 175cm, 10kg (=22 pounds) to lose.
    (1kg = 2.2 pounds)
    (1g = 0,0022 pounds)


    This is my program:

    10:00 AM (wake up) : 5 grams BCAA + 1 gram acetylcarnitine + 3 cps thermogenics

    10:15 AM (empty stomach) : 30-40 minutes cyclette in lipolitic heart beat range (60%-70% of 220-age bpm) (4 days every week)

    11:00 AM (breakfast): 30grams whey protein + fruit + multivitaminic

    1:00 PM (lunch): 200 grams beans + 150 grams meat or fish + olive oil

    4:00 PM (snack): 1 fruit + 5 egg's white + omega 3 (3 grams)

    8:00 PM (dinner): 150 grams meat or fish + olive oil + vegetables

    11:30 PM (before sleep): 150gr greek yogurt 0% or 200gr cottage cheese

    All day: a lot of vegetables and black/green tea.

    Push-ups to use muscles and not losing them.



    Is my program ok or all my muscle will catabolize away?
    Can you suggest me some improvements?

    Thanks!

    8pm is way too late to be eating a meal if your cutting.You need to stop at 6:30 at the latest.Are you working out at all?I only saw cardio.If your worried about catabolism,then your muscles will start to atrophy in about 2 weeks due to lack of use.Push ups aint gonna cut it dude.Other than that your program is well thought out.

    Its not if your eating normally.But if your dieting,its better to have the food stop a few hours before bed.And then get up and do cardio on an empty stomach.Since most of us get up early for work(me at 4:30am),then we are in bed early(me 9pm).Now if you were working a second or third shift,this would be different.I will eat up until 7 or 8 but Im still gaining.

    I don't think you are going to be losing 22lbs in 30 days with a conventional diet. If you do manage to a LARGE part of it is going to be muscle. How much fat are you going to be getting a day, and how much do you weigh? How much protein and carbs?
