The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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 don't know of any good sites, but there are definately some good books out there about it. I can't recall the name of the one I had, it was like the food bible or something along those lines. It had all major fast food places and restaurants in it.

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    Just go to the website of whatever place you're curious about. They pretty much all have nutritional info on their home pages.

    Ex:
    www.wendys.com
    www.tacobell.com

    Etc, etc, etc.

    Corinne Netzer's 'Complete Book of Food Counts' also has info for most of these places.

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    I totaly disagree with this.

    some fast is not to good. but lots of non-fast food products are low in nutritients as well.

    the main reason why people see fast food as bad. is more the nutritients it has got in. like lots of certain types of bad fats and lots of salt and sugar.

    there are many good fast foods. such as strawberry. foods like this come under fast food.

    ready made sandwich are fast food and some have some excellent nutritional values. lots of carbs, healthy fat, protein and vitamins and minerals.

    When we say "fast food" we aren't referring to "food that is prepared quickly".

    We are referring to "fast food" restaurants, like MacDonald's, Wendys, Burger King, and the like.

    You won't find healthy sandwiches at any of these places. Their foods will not be high in vitamins and minerals, and though they will often have a lot of protein, it will more often than not be at a 1:1 ratio with fat, a lot of it saturated.

    I have never seen a fast food restaurant sell fresh fruit either...

    a McD's Fruit'n Yogurt Parfait has strawberries and blueberries mixed in between the yogurt.

    A six-inch roasted chicken breast sandwich from Subway has 22g of protein, 6g of fat (1.5 of it saturated), 48g of carbohydrate and 4g of dietary fibre. Throw out the top half of the (whole wheat) bread and eat the sandwich open-faced, and you've got a nice balance there. Better eat two or three!

    A chili bowl from Tim Horton's has 17g of protein, 9g of fat, 24g of carbohydrate and 3g of dietary fibre. Eat it with a Black Forest ham & swiss cheese sandwich on whole wheat, which has 27g of protein, 18 grams of fat (with the mayo), 51g of carbs and 2g of dietary fibre.

    Fast food's suboptimal but I don't think it's fair to say that none of it has any nutritional value. Reminds me of that thread earlier, that said "All supplements are useless."
