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?

    Fructose... the truth

    Okay, I understand why fructose isn't a good choice post-workout, but let's say you were having 6 meals per day, 3 of which were MRPs. Your post workout MRP's carbohydrate source was maltodextrin or dextrose, the other two got their carbs from fructose. What would be wrong with that?

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    body = right
    Fructose will replenish liver glycogen much more than muscular
    it is also metabolized differently than glucose or starches in that it will be converted to triglycerides when liver glycogen is full (which that malto will do to a significant extent)
    I would not do this

    Fructose is fine but at those dosages I would opt to use something that will be more effective.

    This is true.

    Other than wheat germ, I don't know of many low(er) GI carb sources that actually taste good in a shake. Yams and brown rice taste like crap when you blend them; so does whole wheat bread.
