The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Your Mid Morning/Afternoon meal for the bodybuilding business man/woman

    Hey guys,

    Was wondering what type of meals you guys have for your mid morning/afternoon fill ins. I currently have the below but feel this is quite boring and wanted to see if there was any exciting alternatives i could have. They would need to be quick and calorie dense as this would be for bulking.

    Mid Morning/Afternoon i usually have a gainer w/ glutamine and creatine and a natural nut muesli bar, about 700 cals each.

    Any new ideas would be great.

    Around 4:00 I have a Nitrean shake mixed with milk...this is post workout

    Around 9:00 I have another Nitrean shake or a healthy portion of cottage cheese...right before bed.

    heh. of course you outweigh me by 80 lbs.

    I have about 4-5 meals a day. depends on if it's crazy busy at work or not.

    right after getting up, 7-8 am I'll have a glass of Nitrean with or without milk, or some cottage cheese.

    somewhere between 10-11, oatmeal, or eggs/home fries/juice or a breakfast burrito.

    between 1 to 3 (I prefer late lunches because if I eat too early in the afternoon and there isn't a lunchtime workout scheduled, I tend to become drowsy and lethargic), some chicken breast or fish with rice and a salad. sometimes it's a tunafish sandwich.

    I keep yogurt, trail mix and fruit in my office. our pantry stocks up on milk like no body's business ... so if I'm feeling peckish I'll drink a few glasses.

    dinner rolls around 7-8. more chicken, fish or lately I've started to eat dead cow. Dead cow sounds so much better than dead bird, come to think of it.

    I'll have a bowl of cottage cheese right before bedtime. When I was younger, I'd mix it with tunafish. These days I prefer it plain, with some black pepper.

    If I'm out and about running around the City doing filings, then all of that goes out the window and I eat when I can but I still get my calories in. it just won't be as evenly spaced out as I'd like it to be.
    me: so this is the "pump" you speak of

    I start with an MRP with 600 cals as soon as I wake up. Take 2g of microlactin also.

    An hour or two later I have 2 cups of oatmeal mixed with 3 scoops protein powder.

    5g fish oil with each.

    I hate eating...

    Nitrean shakes with milk have been a god send for helping me put on weight/muscle! I have 6 scoops on workout days, all in 16 oz of milk. Then more milk before bed..

    <3 milk.

    I have a stomach though, so that may not be the best strategy if you are serious about bodybuilding. I just want to look yoked while wearing clothes, which is what I have on 99% of the time, so I am aiming to just get as big as possible and some stomach fat is acceptable.
