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?

    Any tips for my last week of a cut.

    Hi everyone I set a goal for my self a couple months ago to go on a cutting diet. So far it has gone fairly well and this is the final week of this diet which kinda makes me happy.
    Anyways I was wondering if anyone has any tips for my diet and other things that will maximize the results of my cut when it ends on sunday. For example getting any excess water weight off.
    Thanks for your help and if your interested at all I will be posting pics probably sunday night around midnight.

    Nothing significant will happen in a week...it's all about the cumulative effects of the cut. If you're worried about excess water weight (which shouldn't be all that important unless you're competing or having some sort of photo shoot), then take a diuretic.

    I drink alot of crystal light, does that hurt at all, should i switch to just pure water? For taking the diuretic how much time before my photos should I take it.

    I've been doing research on this because I am on a cut as well. Here is a good article I've found (look towards the end under "The Final Week"): http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/layne36.htm

    The basics of it are a week out you begin loading up on sodium and carbs. This increases your body's process of removing them. Everyday you decrease the amount you take in to very little the day before. I suppose it's just a quick way to increase your metabolism and help remove water. He also suggests to stop taking in lactose and carbonated beverages.
