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?

    Calorie Drinks

    Whats that boost or Boast crap, it says its some kind of nutritional drink, but I looked on the back and it's jammed with calories, like 300 or something, which sure would help me with bulkking, anyone know anything about these drinks or use em?

    boost, slimfast, and the like are full of sugar. Maybe they'd be good pre-workout, but I wouldn't drink them on a regular basis

    i jumped the gun and baught some already, I think it was a bad move, not only do you guys make good points, its about 22$ CDN for 12 cans, not to wallet friendly. Here's the Nutritional facts

    (Calorie Plus Boost)
    Energy - 360
    Protein - 15g
    Fat - 14g (Holy sh*t)
    Cholesterol - 7mg


    AH well, a can every other day will help a bit with the bulking, after that I guess I would not recommend these, and I've never tasted a$$ before, but if i did, I'm sure it would taste like these drinks

    I think they are also supposed to have higher calories since they are considered MRS.

    Vitamins and minerals dont amount to a hill of beans if there are no calories. You can't sustain yourself on vitamins and minerals. You need calories, God damn it.

    If it's cals you're going for - Drink Sunny Delight in a can....roughly 200 cals per can and alot cheaper. I used to drink those when I wasn't meeting my cals for the day.

    Alot of sugar yes.

    What are you talking about? I've never heard of a meal replacement product that had no calories. Vitamins and minerals are crap! I demand satisfaction!
