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?

    Hot beverages...

    Winters just around the corner, specially for us living on the north pole. Any ideas on some healthy hot beverages to get rid of the shivers...(on a weight gain program)

    1- coffee: I hear it burns fat and would hinder muscle gain

    2- tea: natural, and harmless if you dont like the taste of herbal tea??

    3- hot chocolate: I'd assume too much sugar?

    4- boiled milk: I'd assume some nutritional values are lost if milk is boiled...??

    comments, ideas pleeze...

    there is some beverly powder that you can mix with milk and heat it up, and voila you have hot chocolate.

    Other than that, i drink green tea and the occasional cup of coffee.

    How does coffee inhibit muscle gain? Wives tale?

    I know coffee is a diuretic but does it dehydrate you by more than the amount of water it contains?

    coffee is not a diuretic, caffiene is a diuretic. so is green tea (contains caffiene) and regular tea.

    You know what? you can even make a substitute hot chocolate by using a chocolate flavoured protein powder.
    I used to do this by mixing a little bit of powder with either skim milk or water to make a paste and then adding some hot water.
    It really depends though on the brand of protein powder you use else it could taste not so nice.

    2 Hot beverages each day will gradually shrink the size of your stomach (at least that's what I've heard).

    Height: 5'7"
    Weight: Not Big Enough
