The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Just got my new whey in the mail

    Up till now I was using GNC 100% whey chocolate flavor. It didnt taste that great but it was no trouble getting used to it. But today arrived my new shipment of supplements which contained 100% whey powder made by Optimum Nutrition. I got 5lbs of double chocolate and 5lbs of chocolate mint. I opened the chocolate mint first and am sippin it now. I gotta say this stuff tastes pretty friggin good. You all might consider giving it a try sometime. Its good enough tasting that sipping is enjoyable. Now the GNC stuff, I would just chug that just to get it over with. So long GNC....i found a new supplier.

    Do you add ice cubes when you mix?? I find that makes even the worst tasting shakes tolerable.....Except Myoplex Deluxe Strawberry. Its too disgusting for words.

    No i dont add ice. But I do double the scoop amount. For instance Ill put 16oz cold water in a shaker then add 4 scoops instead of the recomended 2. Most of em say to add 1 scoop to 8oz water. I double that and add 1 scoop to each 4oz of water. Its 23g protien per scoop so 16oz water with 4 scoops mixes well and come out a little thicker. So that way each shake is 92g. i drink 2 of those each day, spreading them out over 4 to 6 consumptions.

    Well now you got me thinkin. I read the instructions on the container and it said for best results to consume 1 g protien per lb of body weight thru a combination of high protien foods and whey as a supplement. So I weigh 170lbs roughly. So the extra probably isnt hurting me but I might be wasting my money. I think ill cut it back to 6 scoops per day. Thats 23gx6=138g from whey. The rest I can get from foods. Thanks for calling me on that. It should save me a few bucks.

    Whey aint all that, with exception for post-workout.

    Whey has become highly pushed becuase of the supplement firms, i reccomend reading the 'Whey' article on the WBB main site.
