The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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 advice (pics inside)

    I don't have any before pics but here is a current one, been lifting for 3 months now consistently 3 days a week doing HCT-12
    I was 250lbs and my current weight is about 195, anyways to my questions.

    I'm not sure what I should do at this point should I cut or bulk with how my body is now?

    I'm currently taking these supplements:
    Phase 8 Blend
    ON 100% Whey
    5mg Creatine Mono
    Erase fatloss
    Multi
    Fish oil
    Pre workout usually assault

    I'm eating pretty healthy about 2000-2500 calories a day roughly 100-125 carbs, 175g of protein, and about 60g fats all (nuts, PB, etc)

    So in your opinion should I continue to cut? or start bulking I'd like to get rid of my man boobs (not sure if gynemastia? or just a lot of fat under my chest?)

    Looking for any advice

    That is almost definitely gyno. Losing body fat will help, but I don't think it will eliminate it. You may need surgery if you wish to totally eliminate it.

    Great job on the weight loss!

    I do think you should continue working on body composition.

    You might also think about trying some AtLarge Nutrition supplements. They truly are better than what you are using and they support this site which gave you HCT-12 etc. If you would like to know what I recommend to that end just let me know.

    Are there any OTC things to fight it? or is surgery the only option? I'm going to make a Dr. appt when I'm back from work.

    I'm using Atlarge Multi, fishoil, creatine, and I just got Axcel as well
    Hoping another sale comes soon so I can order Nitrean+

    Thanks for the business. I do not know of any effective over the counter products, no. If you have the actual breast tissue development I believe the only way to eliminate it is with surgery. You might be able to reduce it with medications, I am not certain on that point.

    Continue to cut. You still have a decent amount of bf on you, so it doesn't make much sense to add more while bulking.

    Congrats on the weight loss. My brother has the same problem. He lost 85lbs. and had loose skin. His arms and back were cut, but had the extra skin on his stomach and chest. It will go down the more you cut bodyfat, but like many have stated, you may have to go under the knife, but that's a personal choice.

    Cut until you are lean, then start from there. It is always better to start the muscle building process from a nice lean condition than not because:

    1) You can quickly see if you are adding too many cals because the fat gain will be more noticeable.
    2) You will look better, comparatively speaking, for the duration of your bulk.
