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?

    Maintenance Calories and Cheat Meals

    I've just dropped about 60+ lbs from a bulky big guy, to a now lean and ripped version of my self. I'm very happy with where I'm at right now.

    I have always done weekly cheat meals (usually 1-2 over the weekend) when I was bulking or cutting.

    I was thinking to myself IF I'm taking in enough calories to maintain my current weight...Wouldn't a cheat meal every week just make me slowly gain weight back?

    Yes, if it's an increase of calories that do not get expended (whether consciously or subconsciously).
