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?

    Reefeeds - -How often?

    Since the search function is apparenly broken, can anyone tell me when I can refeed? I am weighing in at about 210 in the buff when I wake up and I'm at about 14-15% bf. I am cutting on 3000 cals...but I might knock it down to 2800 in a few days.
    Credulous at best
    Your desire to believe in
    Angels in the hearts of men.
    But pull your head on out of your hippie haze
    And give a listen
    Shouldn't have to say it all again

    i would refeed at least once a week.
    you could also try adding a planned extra meal once or twice during the week as well. i have found both work effectively.

    I agree, but really if you are feeling like sh!t than do it more frequently. Remember that refeeds are not bingefest like I sometimes have a tendency of doing so controlled refeeds can be done more frequently depending on your feeling and whether or not you hit your plateus.

    i've heard a refeed once a week is good, mainly if you are under 15% bf i believe.

    you meant gradually right, because if you didn't...
    My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.

    I would consider going from 3000 to 2800 cals a small decrease in cals.

    Every 5 days, according to this article. Scroll near to the bottom

    http://www.theministryoffitness.com/.../article18.htm
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    I'm going to refeed once a week but I'm unsure of which day is best to do it. I train monday, tuesday, thursday, and friday. I do HIIT on saturday and sometimes on wenesdays. When do you think its best for me to refeed? I was doing it on saturday but now I'm reading it's best to do it on a training day. ???

    I think it would fine to stick with the refeed after the HIIT session on Saturday.

    Depending on bf%, degree of calorie deficit, and how you feel in general you might find that a smaller refeed once a week would be more beneficial than refeeding once every 2 weeks.
