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?

    CID question

    I've been a long time lurker but I finally have a question I know at least a couple of you can answer concerning CID. So, on refeed days I'll keep the protein and fat grams the same and increase the carbs to meet the target calories, right?

    Does it matter what kind of carbs I eat? Pasta, bread, fruit, sugar, whatever?

    Fat low(Personally, I keep it under 10% of my total calories), protein at 1g/lb of lbm, and carbs at ~500g or more. It probably doesn't make a whole lot of difference what the carb source is, although high-glycemic is probably better. I use a lot of maltodextrin and dextrose myself. Along with a box of Count Chocula, pasta, etc. Might want to switch to lower glycemic stuff along with some fiber--which should be minimized during the rest of day--towards the end of the evening to prevent a 'carb hangover' the next day. A moderate amount of fructose, e.g. piece of fruit or some juice, at each meal wouldn't be a bad idea either. Do a search here on the forums for more detailed explanations.

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesnít realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.
