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?

    That's a bulking diet by the formula you're using. I think it was 15 x bodyweight for maintenance. Either way, lift hard and eat clean and you should add muscle and gain weight (muscle weighs more than fat).

    You also seem to drink a lot of shakes. I haven't counted, but just make sure that a good majority of your protein comes from whole food.

    I'd replace the special k in your last meal and try to eat something right before you hop into bed.

    And unless you're loading, I don't think 10 grams of creatine is necessary. 5-6 grams should be enough.

    I cannot assure you whether this caloric intake is the ideal for you and this is something that you are going to define, but what I can say, is that when your intake is as high as yours, you don't need so much protein. You can reduce the protein intake to 35% and increase the fat intake so that you bring it up to 25%.

    The sixth meal has not to be so caloric dense.. Its your last meal and your metabolism is not working that high.

    Is that menu from some kind of planner or something or did you do the research on it yourself..
