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?

    Why Low Carb Diets Are Bad

    This was taken from naturalstrength.com.



    Zero Carb Diets
    To me, anyone on a zero carb diet is just showing his stupidity. What fuel do you think your brain burns? Have you ever heard of the Krebs Cycle? ..Energy Systems...ATP ..or fast twitch (type 2b) muscle fiber? If you believe in zero carbs you obviously have not and have no clue. When you strength train you burn carbohydrates as fuel. Your body can not compensate for poor fuel. If you are out of gas and are inadequately fueled, you are not capable of training hard and are doomed to fail. You can get all the rest and recovery you want, be mentally focused, and eat lots of protein but you will still feel weak and tired if you do not have enough glycogen storage in your muscles and liver. You will not make it through your workout. Complex carbohydrates are essential to your training success : don't be fooled by the quackery.

    If you don't believe me, go to a registered dietician for advise. Do not go to a health food store for advise. This is the LAST place you should be asking questions. There you will more than likely find a Greatfull Dead listening, dope smoking high school drop out making minimum wage at the counter. Do not ask him for advise!! Do not read the mega hype muscle mags for advise. Do not go to your gym for advise on nutrition either as they are no better. Do not ask a bodybuilder for advise, do not ask your chiropractor for advise, do not ask your friend for advise, do not ask your bartender for advise, do not ask your personal trainer for advise. See a Registered Dietician. Get it!

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    hey...i worked at a health food store. And i hate the Grateful Dead.

    incidentally, breast milk has very few carbs, but nursing babies don't seem to be retarded.

    And I don't think there is a diet out there that advocates zero carbs either.

    well actually he does... if he's speaking about a weight lifter using an adkins diet for reasons you covered in your excellent article cackerot

    But i doubt he can be speaking of a ckd/tkd as they aren't zero carb diets.

    The registered dietician part killed me, too.

    Not everyone who works at nutrition stores is stupid or doesn't know what they are talking about.

    Dieticians...you mean the same dietician who told me to have 2 tbsp of peanut butter as my protein servings for lunch?

    actually, in english speaking countries that were former british colonies (including britain itself) spell advice with a "s" instead....organize is spelt "organise", realize is "realise", etc...

    The article is not so crapy but it doesn't tell us the whole truth.

    You need carbohydrates to have an optimal thyroid function.

    Ok,but that doesn't mean that we need carbohydrates every day or/and in every meal.Some smart persons were able to discover a way where we could eat carbohydrates and take all the good advantages they can offer us,like optimal thyroid function,muscles building etc. but without the bad results like high insulin levels and thus fat storage etc.

    So,at last this article includes a small part of the truth.
