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?

    Have you known anyone like this?

    Has anyone ever seen anyone like this. First, the guy I am gonna talk about works out a lot so he has a ton of muscle.
    Heís 45 and about three months ago he decided to get cut so he developed his own diet.
    I did a body fat measurement on him and he was at 21%.
    Here is his diet
    7 am 2 boiled eggs

    10. 5 4 slices of ham and 2 slices of cheese.

    1 pm 1 chicken breast with sliced bell peppers
    Low carb Fajita sauce and some sour
    Cream.

    4 pm 1 can tuna with a raw egg mixed in.
    He then puts some cajun seasoning on
    them, and fries them like a burger
    pattie. They are delicious.
    He then eats a cup of broccoli covered
    In hot sauce.
    7 pm Dinner is a pork steak and salad with
    Ranch dressing.
    After that he has (8) light beers .

    Here is the kicker boys and girls. This guy is shredding up like you would not believe.
    I really am starting to wonder whether or not all of this stuff about eating the perfect diet is just a bunch of bull$hit, and maybe itís just about having good genetics.

    He is at %21 BF. That is nothing to write home about. I am not going to claim I know much, but what you listed and his current BF% sounds like he is only going to bulk not cut.

    How tall is he? How the heck is he eating all that on a cut? He must be a big man.

    i know an lightweight pro bodybuilder who is huge. he claims he never used steroids. i believe him. hes not big into supplements. ironically he owns a supplement shop. somedays he doesnt even take protein shakes. he said he gained 30 pounds his first year. i told him he has good genes and he told me "yeah but its hard for me to get cut." im looking at the guy and hes looking good (about 8% bodyfat) and he always eats out... and no its not subway. he eats kfc a lot.

    look at dexter the blade jackson. he has an incredible metabolism so he gets to eat more than most bodybuilders. thats an advantage. people who have fast metabolisms say it sucks but all you have to do is eat. it doesnt suck. its very beneficial if you know how to eat right.

    Doesn't matter what the hell you eat. It all has to do with calories in vs. calories out. Once I started watching my calories and making sure the numbers fit my goals, I saw results almost immediately. That's where you start, I never have protein shakes.
    Too cool for school.

    If i had the time i would opt to eat regular food instead of shakes. Shakes dont fill me up, and i find that food is much more satisfying psychologically as well.

    I think you guys need to stop believing everything you hear. Getting cut up is all about diet.
