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?

    Diet seem ok?

    Here is the story. I just turned 18, 5'9" and 155lbs. Around 11% body fat. A year ago, I was 145 and 18-19% body fat. I cut the fat out, and bulked to 155. Right now, I am on maintainence diet:

    Meal 1
    2 Servings Egg Beaters - 60 calories, 2g carbs, 12g protein
    1 Serving Fat Free Cheese - 30 calories, 2g carbs, 5g protein
    1 Onion Bagel - 210 calories, 38 carbs, 7g protein
    1 Banana - 138 calories, 35g carbs, 2g protein
    1 Cup Skim Milk - 90 calories, 13g carbs, 9g protein
    Total = 438 calories, 105 carbs, 26g protein

    Meal 2
    1 Serving Protein Shake - 385 calories, 37g carbs, 34g protein
    1 Banana - 138 calories, 35g carbs, 2g protein
    Total = 523 calories, 72g carbs, 36g protein

    Meal 3
    1 Serving Wheat Sub Rolls - 220 calories, 43g carbs, 8g protein
    1 Serving Lean Chicken Strips - 130 calories, 1 carb, 29g protein
    1 Serving Fat Free Cheese - 30 calories, 2g carbs, 5g protein
    Total = 380 calories, 46g carbs, 42g protein

    Snack
    1 Banana - 138 calories, 35g carbs, 2g protein

    Meal 4
    1 Serving Protein Shake - 385 calories, 37g carbs, 34g protein
    2 Serving Whole Wheat Bread - 160 calories, 28g carbs, 6 protein
    1 Serving Peanut Butter - 210 calories, 7g carbs, 8g protein
    Total = 755 calories, 72g carbs, 48g protein

    Snack
    1 Banana - 138 calories, 35g carbs, 2g protein

    Meal 5
    2 Serving Whole Wheat Bread - 160 calories, 28g carbs, 6 protein
    1 Serving Fat Free Cheese - 30 calories, 2g carbs, 5g protein
    1 Banana - 138 calories, 35g carbs, 2g protein
    1 Cup Skim Milk - 90 calories, 13g carbs, 9g protein
    Total = 328 calories, 65g carbs, 22g protein

    Meal 6
    1 Serving Lean Chicken Strips - 130 calories, 1 carb, 29g protein
    1 Serving Mixed Vegetables - 70 calories, 0 carbs, 3g protein
    Total = 200 calories, 1 carb, 32g protein

    Snack
    1 Banana - 138 calories, 35g carbs, 2g protein
    Totals for the day = 3038 calories, 466 carbs, 212g protein

    Does the diet seem ok? Not too many carbs?

    I want to bulk from June 28 to August 16th. Is it true that 3500 calories = 1lb? I want to get to about 165, 8% body fat by winter. Is this possible?


    Thanks

    A few random things I noticed.

    You plan to eat the same thing everyday? That is difficult. Another option would be to use something that tracks calories for you, something like www.fitday.com

    Also I noticed you are not tracking fats, is there a reason for this? I would also supplement with some fish oil.

    Also some of the numbers look erroneous. For meal 1 with that macronutrient breakdown assuming no fats it should be 524 calories. Also for meal 6 don't be afraid to add carbs. Also I find it kind of odd that mixed vegetables have zero carbs?

    Overall your diet looks great, but again I would say count the fats and use something to track calories like fitday so you can have more variety and just shoot for a certain caloric range everyday. Also make sure you get some fish oil. Goodluck.

    The fats are around 60-80 gramstotal daily, mostly efas (natural peanut butter, fish oils, almonds, walnuts). I just didn't include them. I eat all that daily (been doing for for the past 2 weeks), but I switch the stuff around so I don't get bored. I messed up on the mixed veggies carbs. I was just lazy to go read the label right now.
