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?

    Interesting study

    I'm glad they noted that fact that the advantage of most low carb plans is that they allow higher total caloric intake than the paltry 1,200-1,500 cals that a lot of the low fat plans promote. They, of course, miss the REAL truth which is almost no one will stick with a 1,500 or less calorie diet forever...

    Anyway, interesting read: http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/11/10...rbs/index.html

    I also find it interesting that their "low carb" diet (4% carb cal) is much more severe than their "low fat" (30% fat cal) diet. If they'd have applied the same standards, restricting the low fat regimen to 4% calories from fat, I imagine that group would have done poorly long-term compared to the "low carb". Conversely, if the "low carb" would have been more like 30-30-40 Pro-Carb-Fat that group would have fared better long term as well. Seems like a dial-a-result study almost.
