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?

    Trying to cut down a bit

    My whole life I've had trouble gaining weight and therefore never paid attention to what I eat. I'm at a point now where I feel like I have a ton of visceral fat because of how my gut sticks out when I'm fully relaxed, but I'm a little soft on the outside too.

    I've been drinking a small shake in the morning, a bigger one at lunch, a small one PWO, and a big one again before bed. Because my metabolism is still fast, I decided to cut out the shake before bed since it makes me feel like any way. I figured it's mostly just turning into fat anyway, 800 calories and then sleep seems like a bit much.

    So lately I've been working out, going for a quick 5 mile bike ride for cardio, and then coming home and drinking my PWO shake. This is around 9:30-10pm, I usually go to bed at 1am and would have my larger shake at midnight. Is this a decent order to do things, and what can I eat before bed so I don't necessarily have nothing for my body to work with, but not an excess that stores as fat over time?

    Very noobish questions but like I said, I've never had to think about it before.
    22 - 5'10@236lbs!
    Bench - 325 (old)
    Squat - 455x2 (old)
    Deadlift - 500(old)

    Total: 1280lbs 100% raw

    The key to my exercise program is this one simple truth: I hate my body.

    What kind of shakes are you drinking at night? Fat, calories, sugar?
