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?

    Diet gurus. Macronutrient manipulators. I need some general direction with my diet.

    I do a balanced diet now at ~2500-3000 cals (P/C/F = ~40/30/30) and I try to eat 5 X day (500 cal ea.). I eat 3000 on weight lifting days because I feel I hungry and I need that 6th meal. I have been at 200 lbs for the past 3 wks and I have not seen a change in my body composition. Workout is weights 4 X wk, HIIT 2 X week (just started so 5 min warmup, 5 cycles, 5 min cool down). I had success with a keto before and got down to 180 lbs (190 lbs after carb ups). Is it that I am taking in too many calories? Should I change my macronutient ratios to include more fat so I feel fuller.

    it wouldn't hurt to lower cals maybe 200-300 or so on both training/non-training days -- see where that gets you for the week.
    what are your stats?
    post ur diet.

    6' 1" 200 lbs ~15-17% bf.
    This is what I ate yesterday ~2585 cals P/C/F - 227/202/65. Not my greatest effort at partitioning nutrients but its just an example. Breakfast is pretty much a staple though.

    Breakfast - Shake (1 cup milk, 1 scoop whey, 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 egg starters, 1 tbsp pb), ~540 cals, P/C/F - 44g/37.5g/16g
    Snack - Ham sandwich on WW bread (ham, provolone, tomatoe, lettuce, 1 tspn olive oil, etc), ~555 cals, P/C/F - 38g/23g/26g
    Post-workout shake - 1 scoop whey in water, 2.5 servings of gatorade, ~240 cals, P/C/F -22g/40g/0g
    Lunch - 1 can of tuna, 1 tbspn olive oil, 1 cup pasta, ~ 450 cals, P/C/F -35g/40g/14g
    Snack - Zone bar and a string cheese, 300 cals, P/C/F -23g/22g/14g
    Dinner - 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, 1 cup of brocoli, 1/2 brown rice, 15 g almonds, a few strawberries, ~500 cals, P/C/F -65g/40g/9g

    Well Thanks for the response Raniali. For those interested I have devised a new plan. I am going to lower calories to 2400 and my macro breakdown will be roughly 40/30/30 (P/C/F) - 240 g prot, 180 g carb, 80 g fat. ~40 g prot and ~40 g carb will come from a post-wo shake on lifting days.

    That sounds like a plan. You may want to bring the shake with you to the gym and sip it in between sets though.

    The reason I say that is because 40g of sugar drank quickly will cause an insulin spike = not good.

    I wouldn't lower your intake immediately from ~3000 to 2400, especially since you've already been dieting. Take a couple of weeks and do it in stages, say one week at 2700-2750, and another week at 2500 or so, then finally kick it down to about 2400. This will probably be easier on you psychologically as well as metabolically/hormonally.
