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?

    I have it all the time. The taste isn't that bad, plus you're taking a quick shot of it.

    Does anyone no the nutrional benefits of it? Is it equivalent to a couple servings of vegetables like the claims being made?

    I know it's a good way to pass marihuana urine tests........

    wow.....did you just read my journal?

    i was jsut talking about wheatgrass.....

    here's the deal on it.....the juice you get from it is high chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is almost exactly the same as hemoglobin, except that the iron that makes blood red, is exchanged for magnesium that makes the chlorphyll green.


    it's a great blood strenghtener and cleanser, therefore enhancing your immune system, and deodorizing your system.

    1 oz allegedly offers allt eh benefits of 2.5 lbs of green vegetables, but the only way i figure this works is because of the nutrients in it. it won't give you the fiber that regular vegetables have, so i wouldn't swap out eating vegetables for drinking wheatgrass juice.

    I know it's great for knocking out a cold..that happened to me just last weekend.

    it tastes kinda sweet, and then there is a very..err...grassy aftertaste...if you've ever played football 9american football), you'll find it quite familiar.

    Interesting stuff on chlorphyll. I just thought chlorphyll was a green pigment found in plants that aided in photosynthesis.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Anything that tastes that bad must be good for you

    Try it with ginger juice. You'd be gagging for minutes, but your body will love you for it
