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 REALLY need to work on my eating habits...I am really looking into getting more toned... I am open to any sugguestions... and I hoping that this site keeps me motivated... Thanks in advance...

    Monstar and AFreakyMutation,
    I know I pmmed you seperately regarding this, but you both seem to point at my faults, yet didn't offer any suggestions for improvement, if everyone is here to support each other, than offering improvement, as well as any knowledge you could share to help improve the person is just as important as pointing out their faults. just some food for thought...

    The system of eating clean would be good.

    Complex Carbs
    Lean Meats
    Less Fats

    That would be the basics.
    Foods that you should take in?
    Fish
    Chicken Breast
    Lean Red Meat
    Veggies
    Skim Milk
    Oatmeal
    Brown Rice
    Wild Rice
    Broccoli
    Egg Whites
    Wheat Bread

    I'm trying to provide some solutions.

    lmg8-
    Good point man. I deleted my post and again I apologize for being negative. Good luck with your journal!! I am curious what are your goals - are you going more for fat-loss or muscle-gain?

    Thanks Monstar, My goals are more of a fat loss, I was given some info about Keto but I am not a 100% how I feel about that... http://www.solid.net/lowcarb/lylemcd/ my goals, I haven't really given too much thought to them although I do have about 6 weeks to get in kick ass shape for my Vegas/ So Ca trip with my best friend from my freshman year of college (PARTYING LIKE ROCK STARS!!!) THUS meaning I have to fit my 5'1 136 lbs body in a bikini, I am bottom heavy, so... any advice will gladly be taken... other than that I just want to firm up, and have a little bit of definetion, ( i don't want to be bigger than the frat boys I am friends with at college, I already hit harder than they do ) so.. hope it clears it up..

    Glad your starting to get everything ironed out in your diet! I know for sure a few of the ladies around here have been struggling with that (I am one). If you are interested in doing a keto diet, use the search function and start doing some research. If you have questions a lot of people her can probably help you. Best of luck!

    allow me to copy a post from one of your fellow females
    oh and "Mr. 30 reps to tone".....heh. remember that puerto rican girl trainer i was telling you about? well i decided to amuse myself by asking the various trainers for tips. SO i asked one of the "better" trainers what would be the fastes way to cut:

    him: what you need to do is a fullbody workout 4 times a week.
    me: yeah? what's the rep range on that?
    him: you should 20-30 reps.
    me: really? i'm doing 6-8 now..
    him: do you wanna put on muscle??
    me: yeah...as much muscle as possible.
    him: but you'll get bulky!
    me: no i won't man.....i'm a chick, i don't have the testosterone i need for that.
    him: yeah, you're right a woman won't put on a lot of muscle without some help, but what you should do is tone. 20-30 reps, and you'll make the muscles hard, but they will be small. that's what you want.
    me: well thanks for your input. i appreciate it.

    then i went and had a good chuckle with one of the guys who know's the deal.
    as you can see tryska well sums up what you need to be doing.

    There is no such thing as toned (in the context you speak of)
    What you want is to lower your bodyfat.
    How to achieve this? Eat clean whole food, not the garbage you're currently eating-nuts, meats, whole grains like oats, no processed foods (or as little as possible). Lift as heavy and hard as you can. You'll not be larger then the phrat boys (why the hell are you hanging with phrat boys anyway) as you do not have testosterone.

    Post your workout- what exercises you're doing... I have a feeling this trainer gave you one of these "toning" routines that are useless. Most trainers are useless.

    Looks like you are really sticking to your work out routine, diet could use some help. Hotdogs are definately bad, keep tryin. The foods afreakymutation recomends will help you reach your goals you have set for the summer, they are not that hard to incorperate in to your diet.

    What the **** is this ****? Are you trying to lose weight or something? 630 calories in a day? If you keep eating like this, I'm just going to stop posting in here. I will stop caring. And when Budiak pulls out of a neighbood, the city DIES.

    Dont do this to me. Dont do this to yourself.
