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?

    Weight: 142lbs

    9:00 am: 1.66 lbs lean chicken breasts
    1 and half cup of fat free cottage cheest- 380 cals
    1 apple

    12 am: 1 and half cup fat free cottage cheese
    1 apple

    Have you considered reducing the amount of protein that you are consuming and increasing the amount of carbs and fat. There has been no evidence that consuming a large amount of protein will have any benefits, especially when in a calorie surplus. One gram of protein per lb. of bodyweight should be plenty of protein.

    I would definitely recommend adding carbs to your post workout shake, which will replenish muscle glycogen and increase recovery.

    Also if you are using whey protein for your last meal, I would recommend mixing it with milk to help slow the absorption of the whey. Whey is not really an ideal protein source, unless you are referring to its use pre/post workout.

    i always have a post workout shake and some spagetti or rice after i workout, try eating something full of carbs after your workouts trust me it helps.
