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?

    good veggies that dont taste like crap.

    What veggies should I add to my diet? I can pretty much shove anything into my mouth if I know it will help me. Lately Ive been eating alot of fresh green beans and broccolli but thats about it.

    Taste is a matter of...well...taste

    It's hard to know what you'll find that tastes good to you. My favorite is brussel sprouts. I also like collie flower, peas, broccoli, green beans, spinich, swiss chard, carrots, radishes, mushrooms, asparagus, and different types of lettuce.

    Anything but lima beans.

    Squash is one of my favorites. I've been eating tons of spagetti and butternut squash. Zuchini, tomatos, onions, garlic, mushrooms, peppers, asparagas, cucumbers, etc. The list is almost endless.

    Carrots
    Broccolli
    Corn
    Celery
    Cauliflour (or however you spell it)
    Spinach
    Cucumbers
    tomatoes
    peas
    sweet potato


    Taste is subjective and I enjoy the taste of everything I posted. Keeping in mind the person who posted this considers himself a carnivore.

    Brussel sprouts are king !

    I eat about a bag with almost every meal that they could go with !

    What i have done lately with them - If i can get fresh ones that is :

    Clean them, take off the stems

    Split them in half

    Take some pine nuts and heat in a pan till you can smell the nuttiness

    Toss the brussel sprouts, pine nuts in an oven safe dish then throw in olive oil, Salt and Pepper and mix it all to coat.

    Bake for 15ish mins ( have to watch them since moisture content plays into how fast they roast it seems) at like 350ish.

    Once they are cooked to your liking i throw a quarter cup of balsamic vinegar in the dish and it will sizzle up and i mix the whole thing together.



    thats some good sprouts there.

    I like it raw.

    But I can't eat raw broccoli much. I do like raw mushrooms and peppers (pimientos?) though.

    Onions and garlic need to be put in the pan with the chicken... olive oil first.

    broccoli is dominant.
    ain't nuttin but a peanut.

    You will have gotten stronger when the weight that feels heavy is actually heavier than the weight that feels heavy now. Then the weight that feels heavy now will be a warmup for the weight that feels heavy then. But the weight will always feel heavy or you're not lifting enough weight. Clear? -Rippetoe
