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?

    Opticen, Nitrean & Thermocin for diet

    ive alread had a tub of opticen chocolate and it was awsome. i am def gettin the vanilla this time but i was also deciding on the nitrean, once my ON protein is gone, and the new thermocin for my diet. now i am also busy and where i work doesnt have the best selection of food and i want to loose a little gut. my plan for a diet would be havin a decent breakfast and bringing opticen to work with me and havin that 2-3 times a day and then after gettin home have a good supper, off to the gym, have some nitrean and then maybe a before bed meal. all of that while takin thermocin also to help me with my stomach.

    in regaurds to my trainin just so you know everythin i work out 5 times a week and on off days i will be starting cardio on the tredmill.

    my question is...would using all 3 of these in the way i explained be a good combination for a cutting diet granted i stay at my daily calorie intake for cutting which is around 2500? i dont want to cheat myself out of anything by takin replacing too many of my meals with opticen and i dont want the thermocin to be useless if im not takin it the right way with the right combination of calories, fats, cabs, and protein.

    what do you guys think. i know i may have asked this type of question before but i finally got a routine that works for me and now i am concentrating on my diet. thanks for the help.

    the opticen at work can be fine as long as you can get some fiber into the equation

    ie: bag of carrot sticks

    as for the thermocin as long as you are in a calorie deficit you are fine

    there is no magic ratio of C:P:F that unlocks fat or something

    if you don't eat as many cal as you burn your body will be forced to burn fat as fuel

    it's just that simple

    I lost 20lbs eating pizza and drinking coke (ie: my diet was garbage) but I still lost weight because I was in an energy deficit by carefully counting cals

    having said that now I eat super clean and don't count cals...but I'm still losing at the same rate

    yeah i think ill def get another tub of opticen. its just easier to have that and not have to worry about counting calories. i tried doin it for a week and i never could keep up cause i was so busy. i am ok with the fact that i am not as hardcore as some of the people on here that do count everything they eat but for me just gettin into better shape with liftin and just "watching" what i eat is good for me.
