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?

    Questions regarding Fish Oil and Dieting:

    I've been cutting -- a minor, brief cut -- for about a week now; my goal is to lose between 2-3% BF (currenly around 10% BF).

    I'm running a small caloric deficit -- about 200-300 calories, I'd say -- with a roughly isocaloric macronutrient split. Except for fish oil, the entirety of my fat content comes from olive oil.

    My questions, therefore, are these:

    1) I've recently purchased fish oil capsules, the contents of which are as follows: Per one capsule, 180mg EPA; 120 mg DHA; 446 mg linolenic acid; 254 mg stearic, lauric, and palmitic acids. Ought I purchase a different brand; and must fish oil capsules be refrigerated before opening (mine were not)?

    2) Given that my diet is not extremely carbohydrate deficient, and that my caloric deficit isn't large, ought I still consider refeeding? And if so, when? Are the pertinent low-leptin symptoms hunger and a general lethargy? I know that fat should be kept as low as possible during a refeed -- barring EFAs, of course -- but I am a bit unsure as to what type of carbohydrates to eat and when. Anyone know of a good resource (perhaps by McDonald, etc...) for this? Thanks.

    If these questions seem redudant in the context of this forum, I apologize; I haven't been on much recently.

    EDIT: Just wanted to note that, yes, my training does reflect my current goals -- HIIT, etc... Were I to refeed, ought I do it on Friday/Saturday (Friday I do a LOT of HIIT; Saturday I train back/bi)?
