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?

    Green Tea has zero calories?

    Does green tea really have 0 calories? I assume it has caffeine and other stuff in it? Read somewhere it has a slight thermogenic effect also. I bought some today and just curious if I can start drinking this stuff like water since the box says zero calories.

    Yes it is pretty much calorie free, maybe 1 or 2 cals per cup.

    Green tea has been shown to have many benefits including beneficial affects such as improved body composition, beneficial affects on cholesterol levels, and also contains anti-oxidants, to name a few. Although you would have to drink large amounts of green tea to see most of these benefits, and your best bet would be to supplement with green tea extract.

    I have been drinking green tea for years. As mentioned above, it is high in antioxidants, and just plain tastes good. I have a cup before each cardio session also for a little extra kick.

    I drink it but I hate the taste. I might buy some pills instead.

    Ha! Then I'd say you have bigger concerns than caloric values.

    I usually drink tons of that **** when I'm bulking, and I dont know why. It has great liver detoxifying effects, and apparently a cup or two can increase base metabolism by like 4 percent...but maybe thats just a lie to sell more green tea.

    Frankster, the green tea extract pills are fairly cheap. Send me the rest of your leaf tea, I'll give it a good home.
