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 would say that 2lbs. a week is about the most you need to lose in a week. Eating excess calories was probably more the culprit than coming off the ECA stack. I doubt you gained back 5lbs in a week unless you were consuming large amounts of calories. Some of this weight could be water and glycogen if you started eating more carbs during your week off.
