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?

    need a little help, a little confusion when it comes to cutting diet.

    Just a few quick questions.

    is it a good idea to stick to a 40/30/30 diet while cutting? or should i be lowering the carbs a bit during my cut?

    is 40/30/30 usually just for a bulking plan? or is it what i should shoot for while cutting as well?

    You can use that ratio when you are cutting or bulking--its just a way to structure macros within a limited caloric amount--but cals in versus cals out is all that generally matters in losing or gaining weight.

    Its a fine ratio-more for bulking-because carb intake tends to stimulate appetite, which is why lots of people like to cut carbs when they are cutting plus the fact that they are basically non-essential.

    thanks man i'll probably stick to around the 40carb/30pro/30fat ratio then, this is what i was doing, i just wasnt sure if this was generally for only bulking and not cutting. good to hear it'll work for both.
