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?

    Metabolism effects of food schedule gaps?

    Say you eat breakfast than 2 hours later another meal, then you go and start working out 2 hours after that and finish 2 hours later now its time for your post workout shake but you have not eaten for the past 4 hours. How will this gap effect your metabolism? Also if your post workout shake is 5oo calories and in order to eat 6 meals in the day you need to cut down the time between the remaining meals to like an hour and a half before bed, is it ok to eat an hour after the 5oo calorie shake is consumed?

    Your PW shake will be used pretty fast so 1 1/2 should be fine .. then eat a nice solid meal.

    First of all, a 2 hr workout is entirely too long. If your not beat after an hour, then I doubt your intensity is as high as it could be.

    Second, at the end of a workout (especially if you didn't eat immediately before the workout) your body will be in a very catabolic state. This is prime time to give your body lots of calories in the form of carbohydrates and protein.

    My advice...eat your meal, wait 1.5-2hrs, train for 1hr, take your PWO shake.

    Also if your post workout shake is 5oo calories and in order to eat 6 meals in the day you need to cut down the time between the remaining meals to like an hour and a half before bed, is it ok to eat an hour after the 5oo calorie shake is consumed?
    Yes. In fact it is usually recommended to have a normal meal ~1hr after your PWO shake.

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