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?

    Am I getting enough protein for what I am doing?

    Hi,

    I am having a hard time getting enough protein or at least I dont think I am getting enough. I just started working out on a moderate workour routine. I am not lifting to get big. I weigh 208 and 6' and I want to get down to 180-185 and hopefully turning some of that fat into muscle or at least toning the muscle that I already have.

    I am hitting each body part 1 time one week and 2 times the next week. I am working out M-W-F in a sort of WK1: a b a WK2: b a b split. My whole workout of those days takes me 30 minutes hitting around 4-5 sets per muscle. 6 sets on my chest and thighs. I am mostly doing this to get into better shape for basketball.

    I have heard 1g for every pound of bodyfat. I cant make myself eat that much protein in a day. It is very hard. I dont have the cash for whey powder either.

    Is it really necessary to get 1g for every pound of bodyweight on a lighter workout like I am doing? I can get around 90g a day and that is usually from tuna and egg whites. Does anyone know of any other really high protein food that I could check out?

    Thanks

    1g/lb is sufficient

    Oh crap I meant to put 1g per pound of bodyweight. DOH!

    I meant to say that I cant get 208g in a day unless I ate tuna for every meal and I am not into all that.
