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?

    Is this a good breakdown

    I try to get


    160G Protein(Metrx, chicken, cottage Cheese, Tuna, boca Burgers, milk, cheese,salmon, ect.

    50G "Good" Fat(Natty PB, Chedder Cheese, Peanuts)

    130 Carbs(Bread, Oatmeal, Bagals, Milk, ect.)


    sometimes I get a few more carbs but I strive for those goals


    I usually get between 1600-1900 Calories per day

    the macronutrient breakdown doesn't matter all that much, as long as you're under maintenance calories(gradually work up to 500 under), and I don't think Cheddar Cheese has o-3 or o-6 fatty acids

    "I usually get between 1600-1900 Calories per day"

    you should stick to a number, if 1600 is your cutting Calories then stay around there everyday, it shouldn't fluctuate
    My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.

    Looking at your stats, you are definately not a "big" guy. What are your goals? 1600-1900 doesn't seem like a lot of cals IMO. I am 19 and 130lb and i go for 2600 a day
    The world acording to prune

    If you can't be a good example, at least be a terrible warning.

    no I'm not big...


    My goals are to get bigger but to not get a belly. I have tested it out and 1900 calories is just about as much as I can have on a daily basis without gaining a lot of fat. I am actually bulking right now. I am gaining weight. I've went from 155 to 160in just a few weeks and I haven't really gained any on my waist.

    That is my goal. To get big and not gain bf. In fact I need to lose a little bf.

    I agree with the others in that cheese is not really a healthy fat source. I would probably add in some source of omega 3 fatty acids such as fish oil, flax oil, or oily fish (example salmon).


    Am I on point?

    If you are gaining at a slow rate then it sounds as though everything is going well. As SoulOfKorea pointed out, the macro breakdown is not that important as long as you are taking in adequate amounts of protein and EFAs.

    I always thought you should try to break it down so you don't get so many carbs.


    And why isn't chesse good fat?


    It is low carb and has some protein as well.

    As long as you are getting adequate protein and EFAs the overall amount of calories will be the determining factor, as far as weight loss/gain is concerned.

    And why isn't chesse good fat?
    The majority of the fat in cheese is saturated fat.

    It is low carb and has some protein as well.
    That is true but there are definitely better food choices than cheese. If you like it then that is fine, but as far as nutritional value it really does not have that much to offer.

    I would add in some source of omega 3 fatty acids and probably some high GI carbs postworkout.

    I would also switch the 10:00p.m. and 12:00a.m. meal around so that you are having the cottage cheese as the last meal of the day. Cottage cheese will provide a slower digesting protein source, which would be better IMO since you will be fasting for the next 8 or so hours due to sleep. This might not really make that much difference in the long run, but every little bit helps

    From the info that I have it looks good to me. Assuming that you are taking in enough protein and EFA's. I would recommend taking in 1g of protein per lb. of bodyweight (which I am sure you are getting) and approximately 25-30% of cals from fat. Since I don't really know the exact portion sizes of your foods I can't say for sure exactly how much fat is in your diet.

    Usually about 50g a day


    Which probably isn't enough and it is usually all from natty peanut butter.


    I'll have to work on that
