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?

    are you sur your counting your cals right? just looking at it seems like your eating way more calories then what your counting..

    3 slices of WW bread = 250 cals?
    1 slice white bread = 80 cals?
    the 3 shakes = prolly 200 cals each = 600 cals?
    1.5 cans of tuna = almost 200 cals?
    catfish ( 4 oz? ) = prolly 150 cals?
    4 tsp of natty PB = 400 cals?
    the milk = 450 cals/5 cups?
    the wheaties = 270 cals?
    the crackers = 15cals a cracker? = 150 cals

    with a grand total of ~~ 2550, and i think i was being generous with some of the calorie amounts.

    If you wanna bulk I have a great way to seriously pack in the calories without your stomach ever realising it.
    Every hour you must eat 1 slice of bread whilst you are awake. A slice of bread is small, but take 18 slices over the day, and you have got 1800 extra calories. Do this on top of you regular meal , and bingo almost 4000 calories. Believe me mic you will put on weight doing this.
    Statitistics:

    Weight 160
    Height 6'1''
    Target weight 210

    Also the bread could be one of the reasons you feel so full. I know that if I eat too much bread I get that bloated lethargic feeling, so replacing some of your cals with other carb sources might be worth trying (oats, potatoes, beans, etc.).
    That is interesting. I always thought bread was to be avoided on a cutting diet, the reasons being (1) it is high GI causes large swings in blood sugar levels, and (2) because it is void of fiber and/or water, and therefore not very satisfying.

    Now, I'm thinking that if bread indeed causes a satiated feeling, maybe moderate use may keep hunger in check on a cutting diet. Even if it does cause an insulin spike, if one is eating below maintenance calories, the insulin would probably not matter because there would be no spare glucose to shuttle into fat cells.

    Even though bread is higher on the GI (depending on the type), it is usually eaten with other macronutrients that would lower the GI (fats and protein).

    As far as bread being void of fiber, it would depend on the type of bread that you are referring to. I use 100% whole wheat bread that has ~3g of fiber and 4g of protein.

    The GI is not going to affect weight loss to any significant degree, as long as you are eating under maintenance cals. If you are burning more cals than you are taking in, then you are not going to store any of the cals consumed throughout the day as fat. Although eating high GI carbs all throughout the day will not control your appetite as well as low GI carbs, as you mentioned.
