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?

    just take a look and give some feedback

    I've been currently bulking for the last 2 weeks, usually give it about 2 weeks to see where my weight settles because many variables change when starting a bulking diet from increased water weight and increased food volume. So we'll see where it goes from here. Currently 5'10 161lb's

    Lift weights 4x a week, HIIT 2x a week, just added long duration cardio on Sunday instead of a rest day, and in between the week I do miscelleneous forms of cardio usually about a 4 mile run in the mornings 2x maybe 3x a week due to being in the military. My main focus is to gain lean mass on a slow controlled bulk while also improving my health and cardio performance severely, hence the running... just would like some critique or general feedback on todays diet... and my all around plan. I decided to up the calories because of the increased cardio I plan to do was consuming an avg of roughly 2700 calories before.

    Format for numbers is calories - - fat/carbs/protein
    Meal 1 : 2/3 cup oatmeal, half a bananna, 1 cup eggbeaters
    474 - - 6/72/35
    Meal 2 : 1.25 cup shredded wheat n bran, 1 cup milk, 2 oz turkey
    240 -- 3/61/24
    Pre Cardio Snack 1 hour Prior : Large apple, 1 scoop nitrean
    235 -- 2/34/24
    Meal 3 : 1 cup kashi heart to heart, 1 cup shredded wheat n bran, 1 cup milk, 4 oz chicken, fish oil cap
    507 -- 6/83/42
    Meal 4 : 1 cup brown rice, 4 oz turkey, green beans, fish oil cap
    470 -- 6/76/27
    Meal 5 : 6 oz sweet potato, can of tuna, 2 cups broc., fish oil cap
    451 -- 9/49/46
    Meal 6 : 1 cup cottage cheese, 2 tbsp natty pb, 1 scoop nitrean
    500 -- 22/20/56
    Totals : 2977 -- 53/395/254

    looks good to me...with all that running you might hafta up ur calories some....do it for 2 weeks.. and if you're gaining strength (not weight) keep it the same...if ur not gaining strength (plateau) then up the calories 100 or 200...and i doubt u'll get fat with that much cardio... so... it should be easy to judge after about 2 weeks...
