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?

    Are juice smoothies good for a "post workout meal"?

    There's a Jamba Juice(juices/smoothies) on my way home from the gym.

    Are these things good to drink after a workout? With a protein shake too.

    They also have powders you can have added, like fiber, multi-vitamins, protein(soy i think).

    I notice there's a lot of carbs from the fruits, so i just thought it's the same as eating fruits after working out.

    the carbs from the fruit are not ideal. You need dextrose or maltodextrin postworkout, with maybe a little bit of fructose.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    some dex in grapejuice...

    you can get dextrose at any homebrew/wine store and online

    it's easy to add to grapejuice or gatorade powder

    personally I buy dex in bulk and use a flavoured maltodextrin product by Interactive called glycocarb

    I believe sweets like Smarties (in the US) are basically dextrose.
