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?

    Subway while on CID

    I was thinking if Subway sandwiches are good while on CID. It's got the carbs, pro, fat, and fiber from the veggies. What's your opinion on this?

    Should be fine.

    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 doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    First of all, subway is still considered fast food.

    Second, its expensive at hell, if you spend $5 a day on it x 30 days = $150 a month!!! Cheese and rice, thats more than i spend on chicken, tuna, eggs, rice and oatmeal a month!!!

    Uh, okay. I guess that means 'fast food' chicken and bread is in some magical way different than regular chicken and bread.

    They (fast food places) soak their chicken in weird ass **** some times. I can bet that the "wheat bread" isn't whole stone ground wheat either. That's an assumption on my part, but I'd still rather pay less for more.

    But, seriously, if you like it and can afford it, eat it. If you aren't seeing results, cut it out and see if that changes. Rocket science.

    Subway should be fine I would watch the type of bread you are getting but things such as chicken Breast are not soaked in any S*** . Actually subway is one of the better places to grab food from if you have to eat fast.

    I must say I agree with the cost factor. If you know you are going to be out prepare your food it may cost a little less. BTW if you plan to eat subway alot make sure to get the staps for the sub club atleast you eat for free every so often.

    LOL, I'm half the size of Jared. I just got off CKD and TKD and got tired of eating fat. That's why I thought I'd try a CID.

    What I really wanted to know about Subway is the ingredients they use in their sandwich. Does the meat provide good source of protein? Is the chicken breast really chicken or just full of binders like the McNuggets? Is the wheat bread really 100% whole wheat?

    I still say it's fine. But there are certainly more all around healthy alternatives.

    Personally, I love the taste of sodium stearoyl-2-lactylate.

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.

    Blood what are you talking about man? We all know that acetylated tartaric acid esters of mono-and diglycerides tastes better.
    "In the grand scheme of things, both things are quite superficial(obsessed with being muscular&ripped and incredibly strong). And yet lifting can teach you so much. My time at the gym--at least when I'm lifting--is invariably the high-point of my day. There aren't any questions; I almost don't even think. I go into an almost meditative trance-like state. Day-to-day worries become insignificant. I'm focused solely on the weight, and my reason for existence is clear. To move the bar and to improve on what I accomplished last time. Seldom are things so simple." - Blood&Iron

    "Most people cannot understand what burns in our blood, the gym is our addiction and iron is our drug. People don't understand why we commit hours a day to a goal where progress is so small it seems immeasurable, why we do cardio instead of watch TV, why eat 6 meals a day, why we insist on ordering diet soda or how we can drink skim milk. Most people will simply never grasp why we refuse to settle for a mediocre body." - Severed Ties

    Oops, I forgot about those. You're right; they are tasty!
