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?

    It is not that bad. However all I drink is distilled. I hate,hate most water,but distilled has zero taste and I can tolerate the gallon I drink everyday.

    "Distillation is the process in which water is boiled, evaporated and the vapour condensed. Distilled water is free of dissolved minerals and, because of this, has the special property of being able to actively absorb toxic substances from the body and eliminate them. Studies validate the benefits of drinking distilled water when one is seeking to cleanse or detoxify the system for short periods of time (a few weeks at a time). Fasting using distilled water can be dangerous because of the rapid loss of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride) and trace minerals like magnesium, deficiencies of which can cause heart beat irregularities and high blood pressure. "

    it seems that distilled water rapidly depletes the body of sodium by attaching to it and then u pee it out,,good to know next time i need to cut,,GOD BLESS

    Yeah there are some side effects depending who you listen to.

    I've never used it to cut. I found I felt better not cutting sodium so much too far out. The quicker your down and back up the better I think.

    John's quote backs up what I know about it. There's no mineral content at all. If you drink it all the time be aware there's no flouride either for the teeth. When I used to use it to cut for bodybuilding I would cramp like h*ll; but it really worked. Short term it will do it's purpose. Long term there are some down sides.

    Yeah, I've heard it called "hungry water" because it absorbs toxins, etc in the body.

    There have also been some studies showing it can absorb toxins from the plastic bottle it sits in

    Bottom line is its not really going to make a huge difference

    I'm going to try it next time I have to shave 4 kilos in a week.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
