The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Cereal

    Any suggestions on what is the best cereal to eat for breakfast? I suppose we could even take it a step further and ask if there's a best cereal on a cut vs. a best cereal on a bulk. Any suggestions?

    I'm on a bulk and I've been trying to get in the habit of eating oatmeal (make it thin and drink it down) but still have box cereals from time to time. My top choices must be whole grain and high calorie and also taste decent otherwise I'd just as well eat oats. I choose cereals like frosted mini wheats, raisin bran, and quaker granola cereals. There was also a brand that I havent had in a while that is probably the healthiest of the three I mentioned that is also good and packs calories; I think it was called northern gold, its made of whole oats and almonds and wasnt too high in sugar.
    If on a cut one would probably just wanna stick to oats but I have no experience when it comes to cutting so cant really say.

    Cutting: Grape nuts, All Bran, Kaashi (sp?)
    These cereals have lots of fiber and will fill you up quickly.

    Bulking: Any cereal that you can eat lots of. Doesn't really matter what kind.

    Kashi is good for cutting, and probably no worse than any number of disgusting healthy things (like olive oil--bleah).

    Bulking, Cracklin' Oat Bran or the SunBelt Granola are pretty dense, calorie-wise.

    Shredded Wheat

    Organic Brown puffed rice/ puffed wheat



    Best for cutting & bulking IMO, very basic "efficient" food

    Try Quaker Oat Bran cereal (the cold kind). It's actually really good, and healthy too.

    Also, try this stuff called "Optimim Power Breakfast" by a brand called Nature's Path. You can get it at Trader Joe's and Costco I know, and probably other places. It's got flax in it, and a little bit of sugar but not bad. Tastes like cinnamon and really crunchy. Yum.

    If I could, I would eat cereal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Is it bad to get 1,000 calories or more a day from eating cereal?

    You never know what you can do, until you try to do more than you can.
