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?

    Boring old chicken

    How do you spice up your chicken?

    I've tried salsa but after a while I gets just as boring as plain chicken. uumm, fillet tower burger. No, no stop that! PROCESSED!

    Seriosly plain wholesome chicken how do you cook it, what with?

    Chicken wraps are the best. I never get tired of them. I make mine just like they do at KFC, less fattening of course.

    Try cooking it topped with that barbacue sauce that is sweetened with Splenda. It's pretty good stuff and very little sugar.

    If you can't be a good example, at least be a terrible warning.

    Get yourself some fresh herbs and a handful of spices, and you're all set. For example, get a handful of basil, a handful of coriander and chop it all up. Crush a tablespoon of corainder seeds and mix that in with the herbs, then squeeze in the juice from a lemon. Rub that all over some chicken breasts and grill or griddle it.

    Or mix up some rosemary, garlic, lemon peel and lemon juice with some olive oil and marinade the meat for half an hour or so.

    Or make a cajun coating with paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic, onion flakes and oregano.

    Seriously, it might sound a bit girly or whatever, but grow yourself a handful of fresh herbs - all you need is a windowbox or a small area of garden. It'll cost you maybe a tenner from a garden center for half a dozen herbs - say thyme, rosemary, basil, coriander, parsley and mint. Then just water them every day or so, and after a couple of weeks they'll be established enough that you can use them regularly and they'll grow back. Get a few spices as well - they keep forever - and you're all sorted. There's loads of mixtures you can use to make marinades or dry rubs, it takes about a minute, tastes gorgeous and you're generally not drowning the meat in fats.

    If you want to eat relatively clean, and want to eat a lot of meat without getting bored, then herbs and spices are about the best thing you can invest in - they'll make food a hundred times nicer to eat, without adding anything unhealthy to the meal or increasing its fat or sodium content.

    I use chicken strips and add tomato lettus pepper and a touch of mayo or pepper corn salad dressing ( very very little just for taste). All wrapped in a tortilla. I can live off of these things and I never get sick of them. They are cheap to make as well.

    1 tortilla is 65 calories

    The same as a slice of white bread and 5 less then a slice of whole wheat.

    Damn, now I am hungry lol.

    No wonder you claimed that restaurant chicken tastes so much better in that other thread.

    lemon chicken - get a lemon and split it into 4, squeeze most of the juice out and marinate the chicken with it. put the chicken, extra juice and the lemon pieces in a ziplock bag for about an hour. then take everything out, put it on a tray and bung it in the oven for awhile.

    No way man. I'll put my plain old chicken breasts grilled up against ANY fast food chicken. Let me throw in some rubs and/or marinades, and I'll go up against any restaurant - and so will my wife. ;-)
    if I had to pick the 4 main influences on my physique, they would be:

    heavy metal music, raw oatmeal, plain tuna, and whey.

    I put my chicken inside a ziplock bag and freeze it. However, I always make sure to put some different spices or sauces inside the bag with the chicken.
