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?

    well it looks like you need more food... doesn't seem like 160 grams of protein, white bread<whole wheat bread, more fiber, more omega 3's
    My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.

    Re: My Typical Diet(Please critique)

    I'm new to this, so take my advice with a grain of salt.

    Looks OK, I guess?

    Meal 2: 1 Tbsp Natty p-nut butter & Sugar free jelly
    2 slices white bread
    ... Try getting a reduced calorie / higher fiber bread. I use bread that's 40 cal per slice, 2.5g fiber per slice.

    Meal 3: 1 can of Tuna w/ 1 Tbsp low fat mayo and pickle juice
    Ok...

    Meal 4: Pre workout shake

    Meal 5: Post workout shake
    1 slice white bread
    I'm not sure I like this. Turning workout shakes into meals rubs me the wrong way. I'd SUGGEST making one of those shakes a supplement to a meal.

    Meal 5: 1 Tilapia w/ a little bit of carrots or greens

    or


    1 Can Tuna w/ mayo and pickle juice
    2 pieces toast
    You have two meal 5's. Might want to work on that

    Meal 6: Bedtime shake
    1 Tbsp Natty p-nut butter and sometimes a gram cracker

    Snacks: (sometimes when I am a little hungry)
    Cottage Cheese
    slices of butterball turkey breast
    grilled chicken breast
    BIG chocalate donuts and creme cheese(I wish)

    I would SUGGEST reducing the "snack" list in favor of more planned meals. Eat more calroies by plan, and try to even each meal to be about the same calorie wise. Snacks lend to over- or under-eating.

    I try to finish the day with about:

    1700-1750 Calories 140 Carbs 45g Fat
    160-170g Protein
    Are you cutting or bulking? If you are cutting, you might be OK here. If you are bulking, eat more. If this is maintnence and you work out, eat more.

    You need some EFAs instead of PB and other fats. Other than that, have fun with your food

    I have been steadily gaining weight with this diet without gaining any fat or belly inches... so I think my calories are about right. The thing with the two meal 5's was saying I have one or the other.

    I may conisder increasing the calories a little gradually.

    -drop the white bread. as for bread, i dont think the one that is 40 calories per slice is very good. i believe it is enriched wheat flour, which isnt as good as just "wheat flour". go for WHEAT bread or a multi-grain bread.

    -drop the white bread from post-workout, just have whey and extrose/maltodextrine

    -for a bedtime snack, i'd drop the gram cracker, and have some cottage cheese.

    my advice, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
    the most effective diet is one that a) works and b) you can stick to.
    personally - i would probably up the fats a bit and cut out some wheat products, but what works for me might not work for you.

    Just curious but why cut out the wheat products? I personally try to get 40grams of fiber/day.

    i think there are better types of carb sources for a variety of reasons .... but food variety is important for obtaining various naturally-occuring vitamins and minerals. fiber is important (that's why i add pysillium husks daily) but i minimize wheat-based products because they make me bloat easily, tend to be more processed and do not satisfy my appetite like rice or yams/potatoes.
