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?

    "Abs diet" for cutting?

    I'm not cutting, but i was just curious what everyone thought about the "Abs Diet." Seems pretty sensible. Built around lean meat, whole grains, almonds/nuts, vegetables, whey, legumes, berries and low-fat dairy.

    Never heard of it.

    As long as it puts you into caloric deficit, you'll notice results.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Sounds like a bunch of carbs. Guess the theory is that you'll be burning more in cardio than you'll be getting from eating carb-loaded stuff like oatmeal, dairy (tons of sugar), grains, etc.. ?

    I'd say do some variation CKD. Worked wonders for me.

    No, the diet says that you center your meals around the above food, and youll lose weight, they say don't count calories it will make you go crazy. Its a newbie style weight loss diet, but if youv'e ever read the "AB's diet message board" most who try it end up gaining.

    I eat all of those foods, cept for the berries and veggies. There has to be more to the abs diet than just "eat only these foods."
    yea that's right, be jealous

    yeah another staple is circuit training 3x's a week, HIIT (high intensity interval training), and 5x's abs exercises a week. The diet present alot of info without science, so you have a bunch of new lifter drinking whey thinking it will "cut their waist lines" and pump them up. Besides, as far as im concerned, no one who isn't experienced can guestimate there diet and lose weight, you have to count, weigh, and record at some point to be certain of a deficit. (unless your starving yourself)

    I read the book a few months ago and thought about it. I tried the smoothie recipes, they are good, but I can't imagine losing weight drinking those things.
