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?

    You mean Ratio?

    I adjust cals as needed so I could be anywhere between BW x 11 - BW x 13.

    I have never intentionally cut. If I did cut, I expect that I would consume BW x 18-19 calories per day.

    Right now I am using BW X 11-12 six days a week and BW X 18-19 every saturday as a refeed. It's tough on workout days, sometimes I go as high as BW X 13 on workout days, hard to keep cals down on those days.

    i just do what works. i start at x12, and i see some fat loss, and then when it stall, i lower cals to like x10 for maybe another 2 weeks. and when that stops, i don't want to go any lower b/c it'll be at the expense of my metabolism so i start a bulk, and just get ready for the next cut. that has seemed to work the best for me.

    I have no idea what my metabolism is (though it seems a tad faster than average), but I usually just go x12 average for the week

    Probably about 15-16 x bodyweight. I prefer to burn the extra calories through weight training or cardio.
