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?

    post workout meal.

    ok im guessing most of u know what health issues im going through, what drugs i take, and what diet im on. the question i have is what should i do when post workout meal comes along?should i stick to my protein and fat or make a carb shake(that ill tell u laterin the post)? the reason is i want to make everything perfect , my diet is going good now and i feel like this is a way i can eat and feel confortable in eating these foods without calling it a diet. now if i dont have a post workout "carbs" wouldnt i lose that much more muslce in the long run? i know my main goal right now is losing weigh(in the form of fat and some water) but sence im diabetic wouldnt having more muslce or keeping more muscle help me in the long run with insulin resistance? or would keeping to al'a atkins be better? could that carbs do me bad or because its post workout it would do nothing but good?

    this is the meal im plaining to add in i do add a post workout shake:

    50g protein from whey protein isolate
    40g carbs from grape juice
    10g creatine
    10g glutamine
    400mg ALA

    what do you guys think would be my best choice?

    Yah, double the carbs. You need to replenish your body from the workout.

    Cal, the general rule is twice as many carbs to protein. I would take 25 grams of whey with 50 carbs if I were you. Then about 60-90 min later eat a whole food meal. You could even experiment with the carbs by splitting the 50 into two different types of carbs. Say 25 from grape juice and 25 from oats. See how your body handles it, and if it does allright gradually up the percentage of grape juice.
    With you being diabetic you're going to have to do a lot of experimenting to see what you can safely handle.

    i hear 3:1 carb/pro ratio myself.

    so 90g carbs, 30g pro.

    im now reading that grape juice sucks for postworkout cause of the frutcose. should i be concerned?

    anways, mwb sence u think 25g/50g is better would making a pre workout meal go well with my post workout meal? like both around the same macronutrients but differnt sources.

    preworkout:
    protein blend
    low GI carb

    maybe 3-4 cups skim milk

    postworkout:
    high GI carb
    fast acting protein

    maybe 1 scoop whey and 1 cup grape juice.

    sound better?
