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?

    Not at all. It was geared to so called gurus that are just trying to sell their services making false promises.

    Thank you for your help. I will do the changes and hopefully I can get on a right track eventually. Reason why I am in this stage is that my metabolism slow down when I was age 16. Back then I didn't know what to do but cut my calories off. Nowadays I think I got the hypothyroidism already back then but doctors did not found it. This has been only way until now to me how I can keep my body in some shape. In my home country 130lb is a normal weight for 6,3 feet tall person and that weight is also in that range (range is 108lb-138lb) what my doctor recommend to me. I know that if you have lot of muscle then that range is not right and my doctor knows it also. But since I don't yet have muscles (my calories has been to low) that is right range for now (I believe my doctor).

    I just run into this metabolic damage 2 days ago and I realize that there is a possibility for me to increase my calories and eat normal amount of food. I have been thinking before that it is not possible to eat that much because I have the disease. Now I know that is not true. My doctor do not give any advise me from foods and amounts that I should eat.

    I know that to increase my metabolism I have to gain weight and fat. I will try my best.

    I am a bit confused as to how a doctor could say 108-138 lbs is normal for a 6 feet 3 inch (190.5 cm) tall person. A range of 108-138 lbs is a normal BMI for a person that is 5 feet 3 inches (160 cm) tall.

    Well this changes a few things.... lol. Your weight is no longer a scary issue then. However, all the advice already said to you still applies.

    Squat: 475

    In my opinion you shouldn't set a goal for "how big" you should get, rather how long it takes until you can maintain your body weight at a healthy caloric maintenance level.
