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?

    A general question about cutting

    Would this be a good cutting strategy:

    Reduce daily intake of cals by 200 each week until I start to notice/measure fat loss, then remain at that level or even add 200 back to make sure I'm not taking out too much. While doing this, I would keep my current 50/20/30 c/f/p ratio.

    Also for my next question: Is cardio necessary for cutting? It seems to me that you have 2 choices when cutting: reduce the amount of calories you are consuming, increase the amount you are burning, or a combination of the two. Is that correct? Can I get by without cardio if I reduce my calories by a sufficient amount? The reason I say that is because I am currently eating 5k cals per day, and I always feel stuffed. It wouldn't hurt me to cut down to even 4k per day. Is the main reason people do cardio when cutting is so they can eat slightly more and don't have to feel hungry all day?
