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?

    Favorite weight lose "cheater" foods?

    Weight lose life doesn't have to be all cottage and boiled eggs
    What are your favorite "cheater foods" that are high in protein and low in fat but still taste good? Nothing against cottage cheese and boiled eggs but here in cold and snowy Buffalo sometimes you just needs something like pizza and wings that "sticks to the ribs".

    Hands down my go to meal when I get a craving is chili. Some lean ground beef with your favorite beans and stewed/crushed tomato and all the SPICES! For a twist use boneless/skinless chicken breast instead of the beef!
    Salsa is great in chili too!

    Lol, do you live by the adage "Nothing tastes better than looking good"? Well, it does seem like your approach pays off

    I agree...maybe I just don't love food enough to cheat, but I really never have a problem sticking to a strict diet.
    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

    The thing is,

    Some people dream about "the forbidden" foods and crave them all the time.I don't,cravings sure, I have.I choose not to go there and stick to my regime.

    Try venison verses ground beef with your chili. Venison is more lean and still tastes great with chili. For fillers at mid-morning and afternoon, I fill up with fruits (Grapes ,Oranges, etc) because they (amongst many other things) are filling foods that keep me feeling full.

    Here's one of my favorites: and you can tweak the recipe depending on what your needs are (from healthy to cheat)

    You'll need:

    Spinach
    Olive Oil
    Fresh Garlic
    Chicken
    Whole Wheat Pita
    Franks Red Hot Wing Sauce
    Shredded Mozzeralla (low fat)

    Slice the breast down the longwise (so you end up with two thin chicken breasts). Salt and pepper chicken, and cook in olive oil. Cut up chicken into tiny pizza-sized chunks.
    In seperate pan, mix a 1 tbsp of olive oil with 1-2 cloves of pressed garlic. Sweat the garlic.

    Throw all ingrediants onto pizza, like you would for a pizza. Put the garlic-olive oil mixture on the pita first.

    Put on a cookie sheet and throw it in the oven at 375 for about 10-15 minutes. Just watch for the cheese to start melting, and when the outside of the pita just starts to brown slightly.

    Cheat tastic version:
    Follow original recipe:

    Instead of olive oil, use 2 tbps of butter for the olive-oil garlic mixture.

    In addition, add some sharp chedder and bacon onto the pizza. If you wish, dip the pizza in some rance or blue cheese dressing.
