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?

    Hi all

    I am new to dieting, I pretty much eat what I want when I want. I have been making slow gains from the training but wish to speed this up a bit through a better diet.
    I am trying to find a sample diet, that I can base my own on, that gives food examples etc. If anyone can help or point me in the direction of a book or url that would be great.
    I am looking to lose fat, gain definition while still building/strengthening the nuscles. Tall order huh? I would settle for losing some fat.
    As far as I have read so far my diet should consist of 10-15% fats,30-35% protein and 50-60% carbs. Is this correct? What should I start with as a baseline for the number of calories I should be consuming per day?
    Hope you can help

    I am still learning with the dieting thing but I can show you my diet so you can base perhaps one from it..

    Mine is roughly 3500 cals with over 360 protein, about 300/320 carbs and 80 or so fat...

    Meal 1

    6 eggs (3 white, 3 whole)
    90 grams of oats with some milk

    Meal 2

    NLARGE Weight gainer

    Meal 3, 4 and 5

    200 grams of chicken
    90 grams fo oats with some milk
    30 grams of nuts

    Meal 6

    2 scoops of whey
    3 bananas

    This are all clean foods pretty much.. I alternate the oats with brown rice and try and get in a good 4 litres of water per day at least.......

    Hope that helps..

    Also look at Gino's just posted diet..

    Thanks for that Hulk.

    I will print those off and have a look.

    I am still really looking for something that will tell me what my basic calorie intake should be roughly. I don't digest wheat easily so need to stay off bread as much as I can, any ideas for an ideal substitute? What do you guys/gals do about taking food to work etc, what do you take, how do you store, how do you prepare the food.

    Sorry for all the questions but I think I need to supplement all the gym time with a decent diet.
