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?

    Assuming your maintenance is 2800, you want to have a 200-300 calorie surplus per day if you're bulking (which you are). If you notice no change in weight then increase the surplus further until you start gaining weight at a rate that you're comfortable with.
    Ideally you wanna get at least 1-1.5g of protein/lb of bodyweight, so about 1000 cals of protein a day; the other 2000 cals you can fill with carbs and fats, if you want to gain more muscle then fat then keep sat fat and trans fats low and make cleaner food choices. If you want an actual ratio, try 30/40/30 (protein/carbs/fats), should come out to about 1000/1200/800.
