The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    How much do you...?

    No, not "how much do you bench"... how much do you EAT? What kind of calories and macros are you taking in these days and why (cut, bulk, maintain)? Would love to see a simple diet breakdown of some WBB regulars and any other comers.

    So I take it you cycle your macros/intake based on performance needs? any general rules you follow for this?

    oh... and cow tales?

    I generally try to take in about 50% of what I know I'm going to burn the next day if I'm scheduled for a 2+ hour workout. Typically this comes in the form of donuts.

    Though extra beer is always an option.

    And I do take in extra on the ride- gels, shot blox, promax bars, extra Results, MORE cow tales (http://www.candyfavorites.com/cow-ta...FQcFnQod-GZ6Vg)

    It's pretty intuitive- if I'm hungry, I eat more. If I feel like I'm not recovered, I eat more. If I look like the michelin man, I eat less.

    3-4 cups of milk
    Fish oil
    Vitamins

    After workout,

    2 scoops whey

    Throughout the day,

    4-5 cups of milk
    some chicken nuggets
    maybe some fruit

    After work, which is late at night,

    dinner (lots of beef and pasta/rice)

    I am shedding some fat right now.

    6:30 AM- 3 egg whites/1 whole egg, 1 slice of whole wheat toast and 1 slice of ham.
    9:30 am- 1 scoop of protein powder and 1/2 cup of wheat bran blended together (horrible mind you).
    12:30- Chicken breast/red potatoes/broccoli
    3:30 - The same
    6:30 - The same


    Actually that has been my diet all week. Usually I have more variety but my girlfriend was sick last weekend.

    2 cans of tuna
    Cup of Greek yogurt
    Cup or so of brown rice
    1 scoop of whey

    That is breakfast and lunch. Cutting is great.
    Will probably have some salmon and a dark vanilla porter(or two) for dinner.

    Big fan of vegetables and fruits, especially carrots and broccoli. I just never bring them for lunch, so I try to stack up on them at dinner.
