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'm clueless

    Hey, what's going on guys... I guess I'll tell you a little about my self so you can help out better

    I'm 17
    -5'6
    -134lbs
    -Fairly Skinny

    Just really started "working," out today. I run Cross Crounty every day, but going to the gym, today is my first.

    But a 1year membership to Planet Fitness

    Have never checked the back of something before eating it, I just eat what is in my house at that time, which isnt usually much lol.

    I just have a few questions to make the workout count.




    [list=1][*]How many calories and how much protein should I be getting daily, to get muscle, look defined and gain a wee bit of weigh?[*]With what foods do I get this with? I'm only 17 so its not like I can come home and cook a chicken anytime I want lol, so what are stuff I can just eat with out little to no preperations?[*]What should I tell my mom to cook me for dinner, the real meal. Nightly?[*]I mainly wanna focus on my upper body, i.e 6-pack...Big muscles in my arm, but not to big...etc[/list=1]

    Im kind of a picky eater, which I know isnt good, but somethings that just taste like ****, I can hold down, no matter how good it is for me...


    I really appreciate the help, cause I did a few searches before posting, and I didnt really find what I was looking for.. and some of the ones that did have what I needed, I didnt quite understand the lingo :-/

    Well,
    Thanks Again
    Doug

    ***Post your workout in the Training forum to get pointers and maybe even start a journal to help us help you!



    [list=1][*]How many calories and how much protein should I be getting daily, to get muscle, look defined and gain a wee bit of weigh?
    ***A good base is 1 gram per lb. I would start there if I were you. Make sure you get plenty of carbs and good fats too though![*]With what foods do I get this with? I'm only 17 so its not like I can come home and cook a chicken anytime I want lol, so what are stuff I can just eat with out little to no preperations?
    ***Tuna, Hormel canned turkey chili, PB&J sandwiches, deli meat sandwiches[*]What should I tell my mom to cook me for dinner, the real meal. Nightly? ***see comment below on this.
    ***Protein: lean steak, chicken, fish, lean beef
    Fats: olive oil, fat from the meat
    Carbs: whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, potato, veggies[*]I mainly wanna focus on my upper body, i.e 6-pack...Big muscles in my arm, but not to big...etc
    ***You still need to work your legs [/list=1]

    Regarding dinner being "the real meal" the two most important meals of your day are actually your breakfast and what you eat postworkout.

    I hope I helped!
