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?

    it doesnt look like you are eating enough IMO.

    -drop the triple threat shake in the morning and have some oatmeal instead

    -at 8am i think you should try to get some more protein, and maybe some complex carbs

    -maybe add some type of complex carb at 11am to go with the tuna

    -still add some more food to the cottage cheese @ 2

    -after your workout drop the peanut butter and bread. the peanut butter slows the adsorbtion of the protein


    just to name a few things

    You definitely need to eat more. GS made some good suggestions. I might be repeating some of his but bear with me

    5 a.m. drop the shake and add in some type of low GI carb like oatmeal, whole grain cereal, maybe a piece of fruit

    8 a.m. maybe add something like a pb sandwich on ww bread, basically just some type of carb and a little protein

    11a.m. make a sandwich out of the tuna, add some ww bread and maybe a little mayo, or you could add some veggies, brown rice, sweet potato, etc.

    2p.m. this meal looks good seeing as how you are just using it as a small snack between the 11a.m. and 3:30 meal, might add a little flax

    postworkout- ditch the pb sandwich and add some high GI carbs to the protein shake (dextrose and or maltodextrin would be easy to add in there)--I usually go with about 60g postworkout

    Might have to play with the cals but shoot to lose about 1lb. per week.

    Is there some reason as to why you want two shakes per day? I would suggest dropping the shake and just go with another whole food meal before bed. I think you would be going too long without food just consuming your postworkout shake at around 5:30 (assuming workout lasts about an hour) and then going to bed around 8:30 pm. That would put you not eating anything for about 11 hours.

    As far as whole grain cereals you might try something like shredded wheat, Kashi, grape nuts. There are some more good choices listed in the thread below:

    A regular whole food meal would be fine to eat (lean protein, low GI carb like veggies, and a little fat). Really just depends on what you want to eat.

    Is the protein shake a blend of proteins or 100% whey?
