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?

    I personally like to use milk. However, if you have more than 10% bodyfat and trying to lower to 6 or 8%...good-luck!!! The sugar content can make or break your diet considering what all you may consume. Cutting with skim milk can be argumentative, but can still make it harder to lose those last layers of fat.

    Milk is great for putting on mass and muscle. My two cents worth.

    I know a lot of people say milk can make you look flat but other foods that have sugar won't make you fat if you stay within your calorie range.

    I really dont have anything against milk? Did I ever say I did? I dont think so.

    Anywho, why wouldn't you drink milk when bulking?
    (When you are cutting this is a completely different story)

    a lot of hormones are species specific, ie plant peptide hormones have little or different effect on humans

    I can notice a difference within a week of stopping diary on the tightnesss and complexion of my skin.

    I drink very little milk and none pre-contest for this reason but otherwise milk is great for adding extra cals and protein.

    Triple P, that's the smartest thing you have ever said.
    As for this Gary fellow, I'm not quite sure why you think we are trying to get you to buy protein. Milk has a lot of sugar in it, sugar is a simple carb ( a monosaccharide, to be exact). Simple carbs are broken down very easily by the body and the body does not need an excess of them. When you give the body an excess, like in milk, they store in the body as fat. Obviously, if you are a bodybuilder trying to cut for a show, then you don't want to drink something that is going to make you fat.
    May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

    I think you will find the sugar is a disacchardie. Lactose is made up of galactose and glucose.

    milk is good if taken in moderation. excess of anything is not good, be it milk, grains, protein, nuts or even creatine.
