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?

    Is anybody doing an isocal diet? If so, would you mind posting an example of what you'd eat in a day?

    I was eating *roughly* isocalorically on my previous diet. Take a look at my old journal (under the diet heading of my entries). Should at least give you some idea.

    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 doesnít realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    Yes.

    I've used isocaloric dieting previously with good (for me) success. On this particular iteration, though, I made a number of mistakes (no refeeds being the primary one) that hampered my efforts.

    They would help keep leptin levels elevated so that your weight loss doesn't stagnate. Plus, it gives you something to look forward to at the end of the week.
