The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    This is close to what I will be eating on training days. I've lowered my carbs to around 150g and upped my fat to around 50g. How does it look?

    Meal 1: 2/3 cup Dry Oats (175,40,6,1)
    1 tbsp Peanut Butter (100,2,4,8)
    2 scp Protein Powder (115,4,20,2)

    Calories = 390
    Carbs = 46g
    Protein = 30g
    Fat = 11g


    Meal 2 (pre-WO): 4oz. Chicken (185,0,33,5)
    2 Whole Eggs (150,2,14,10)
    1 tsp Peanut Butter (50,1,2,4)

    Calories = 385
    Carbs = 3g
    Protein = 49g
    Fat = 19g



    Meal 3 (post-WO): 1 Myoplex (280,24,42,2)
    1 1/2 cup Milk (135,20,11,1)
    1 Banana 8'' (125,32,1,1)

    Calories = 540
    Carbs = 76g
    Protein = 54g
    Fat = 4g


    Meal 4: 100g cooked Pasta (128,26,5,1)
    4 oz. Chicken (185,0,33,5)

    Calories = 313
    Carbs = 26g
    Protein = 38g
    Fat = 6g


    Meal 5: 6 Egg Whites (100,0,21,0)
    1 Whole Egg (75,1,7,5)

    Calories = 175
    Carbs = 1g
    Protein = 28g
    Fat = 5g

    Meal 6 (before bed): 100g Turkey Breast (110,0,24,2)
    Calories = 110
    Carbs = 0g
    Protein = 24g
    Fat = 2g


    Today's Totals:
    Calories = 1913kcal
    Carbs = 152g = 32%
    Protein = 223g = 46%
    Fat = 47g = 22%

    The diet looks real good from my stand point. Why are you lowering the carbs are you trying to cut? I Keep mine that low to cut that is why i am asking.

    I hope you work your way down in cals towards that.

    I don't know your stats so i can't make a proper evaluation, but that seems like a very low calorie diet. I would personally say only go down that low for the last two weeks maybe?

    Rememeber to gradually make your way down in calories.

    You realize that when you cut carbs as a calorie source you have to introduce them back gently to your program when going through a transition period.

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.

    So you guys know, I currently weigh 168 and have been dieting at around 2000 kcal for about 8 weeks now. Before I had my carbs at around 200g, and fat at around 25g.

    And yes I'm currently cutting.

    Mac, when you say transition stage, do you mean when I decide to finish cutting, and decide to start raising my cals to maintain or bulk?
