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?

    American Whey Ripoff!!

    Ok, I have contacted American whey due to the fact that they claim 160 servings per container in the tub I purchased. They also claim 20 grams of protein. The tub reads to fill the serving cup to the line. When you weigh it it is 1 oz but that's with the cup. The whey alone only weighs 1/2 oz!! OOhhh that means that using the directions on the tub you're really only getting 10 grams of protein. I discoverd this when it seemed watery and I decided to weigh it. The gym is actually serving it this way also!! Rip off!!

    Fill it with rocks , walk up to the sales dude and hit him in the face with it . When he falls down kick him in the neck and say " this stuff is junk ".

    the stuff i use (coz of a tight budget) is like that. It claims that 3 level tablespoons equals 65grams, but when you weigh it out its only a tad over 30g!!! So I just have to eat more solid food...oh, well, we will play these silly games won't we??
