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?

    Boxing/Lifting Diet Concerns

    I'm 6'3 187 pounds. Probably around 17% Body Fat (Margianlly Higher than Normal).
    My biggest priority is to lower my body fat down to 12%. But I don't want to lose any weight (gaining a few pounds LBM wouldn't hurt.. but I'll settle for Maintenance).

    It should be easy to do, since I Spar/Train at a boxing gym 2 to 3 times a week for an Hour, Plus I have Lift 2 to 3 times a week too. My problem is that I am confused by all the Diet Choices. I feel that Pure Low-Carb is shortchanging my muscle growth, yet I worry that a CKD would force me to lighten up on the Boxing (by its nature anerobic), something I would hate to do.

    I'm extremely disciplined and motivated and can adhere to any diet. I only lack knowledge. Any Advice?

    Again, with my diet habits, and lifestyle this should be a cakewalk, I just need a plan. What to eat? What to Eat Before and After Boxing? What to Eat Before and After Weight Lifting?


    P.S. I had posted this in the Training Section a couple of days ago. Sorry for the Double Posting

    I would say go with a good balanced macro ratio. The low carb diet would probably make your sparring sessions suffer. I would say start out at your maintenance cals and slowly lower them each week by 200-300 until you are losing about a pound a week. Any more than that and you might be sacrificing lean body mass. Maybe something like a 40/30/30 (p/c/f). What do your diet look like now?
