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?

    Need help customizing my diet

    Age: 19
    Experience: 6 years on and off
    Weight: 160lbs
    Height: 5'10

    I'm looking to get larger. I've been strength training seriously for a few months (Rippetoes). A lot stronger but I could never manage to grow any real size. I'm looking for a diet that will allow someone with my stats and routine to gain weight. Being a broke college student, here are my options:

    Raw beef
    Organic eggs

    Ideally, I would like a diet that utilizes these ingredients only. Often times I have steak, fish, and other deliciouses but they are far and few between. I don't mind eating raw eggs mixed with milk. I also don't mind eating the same thing in the same order every day. Can someone please write me a daily food intake with the aforementioned ingredients (and their proportions) that would allow me to acquire enough calories / protein to grow.

    Everything is appreciated.

    I'm in college too.

    Tuna, Milk, Whey Protein ($30 for 5 pounds, 72 scoops. 72 = about 30 days worth = $1/day for protein). I also get ground chuck and ground beef and just put it on a George Foreman. Buy some pita bread, light mayo. Mix the light mayo with the tuna and put it on the pita bread. Makes a great sandwich.

    Also, breakfast - 5 eggs + protein shake. It's about 45 cents for the eggs and 50 cents for the shake.

    Ok, ok, let me ask this.

    Say I take 5 eggs, mix it with milk, blend it and drink it twice a day (so 10 eggs and 2 glasses of milk).

    I eat a pound pound of bacon for breakfast

    Two cans of tuna for lunch

    Pound of beef for dinner or chicken for dinner

    Do you think that will be enought for a 160lb male who works out 3x a week to grow?

    ^--It's impossible for us to say. The only way to know is to try it and see what happens. I sure hope you're going to add some fruit and veg to that proposed diet though.
