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?

    Depends on your goals.

    A bare minimum should always be 15%.

    If I were cutting, I would go for 25-35%, unless I was aiming for ketosis.

    If I was bulking, I might go for something like 15-25%, but everybody has their own preferences there. I know some people who have had success with a low carb bulk and others who have had success with a low fat bulk. All in all, the minimum is 15% for hormonal reasons.

    I voted 20-25% because that's usually what I end up at by the end of the day, without really trying.
