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?

    Cheat meal: How often, how bad, and how guilty?

    First, I don't think my diet is restricted enough to where I should get cheat meals. I eat oatmeal, protein shake, peas, chicken breast, potato/rice, banana, milk, tuna, toast w/ nat. pb, and cottage cheese. I think my cals are high for a cutting diet, but this is the cleanest diet I've ever had, and I'm doing cardio 3x a week. I've recently decided to stay clean, but I'm allowing myself one cheat meal a week. Tonight I'm going out for the best pizza on the planet. Next weekend the woman's making stuffed pasta shells. The next weekend is the monthly wrestling PPV at Hooters, with wings, fries, and cake. I guarantee I will stuff myself on all three occasions. I feel pretty bad about these, but how bad am I screwing myself? What about you guys?

    I usually have one cheat meal a week but I try and keep it within reason. Just try and have two or three slices of pizza and not a whole large. Just try and keep the cheat meal within reason and don't go overboard. Try and use a little moderation and you should be fine. Although it does kind of worry me that you have the next 3 weeks planned as far as cheat meals go.

    cheating rules! i can cheat enough. actually it depends what you really call cheating. even when i eat out at a restaurant i grill the waiter about leavin oils off my steak etc. occasionally have a slice of cheesecake after dinner. even if i do cheat its not all that bad. frozen yogurt is fat free. i dont like chocolate so i dont have to worry about those. nuthin wrong with cheating a few times a week.

    LOL, what can I say, I love good food.

    Seriously though, it's usually not planned out like this, it just so happened this time... the woman and I were gonna go out to my favorite (expensive) restaurant for V-Day because we never go out to eat. Then we were looking in the cupboards and saw we still had some jumbo pasta shells and her recipe sounded good. And we go to Hooters every month for the WWE, so we had 3 meals in mind, 3 weekends.

    It actually might serve me better to have them figured out in my head so I'm not sitting at home some night and say "Hey, I haven't cheated in awhile, dunno when I will again, I feel like having this pint of Ben and Jerry's."

    Depends on what you call a cheat meal to me. I've completely given up candy, cookies, chips and ice cream. Haven't had it in months. I like subway though, cold cut trio on ww bread loading the veggies minus the condiments is completely fine imo. I also eat alot of pasta, may seem like alot of carbs but my body has been doing fine with it.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.
