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?

    Hello all, here are my stats and goals.

    21 Year old Male
    5 foot, 11 inches
    180 lbs
    35 inch waist
    approx 17-18% BF

    My goal is to lose fat and gain muscle mass. I have a 3 day training split, very similar to Anthony's posted in my thread over in the training forum.

    I am doing a 50/30/10 ratio diet, trying to get 52/31/9 at each meal, or approx. A few meals go over or under a few grams.

    My BMR = 1944.5 cals
    This diet gives me = 2352 cals

    Meal #1 - 8:00 am
    .25 cup of Oatmeal
    1/2 table spoon of peanut butter
    Protein Shake w/ Water
    3.5 ounce Chicken Breast
    Multivitamin

    Gives me:
    460 cals
    53.15g Protein
    36.7g Carbs
    11.7g Fat

    9:00 am - TRAIN

    Meal #2 - 11:00
    1 ounce Chicken Breast
    Protein Shake w/ Water
    .15 cups of Oatmeal

    Gives me:
    394.20g cals
    54.14g Protein
    32g Carbs
    6.20g Fat

    Meal #3 - 1:30
    2 Slices of Whole Wheat Bread
    4 ounces of Turkey (mostly light, some dark)
    1 Tablespoon of Mayo Light

    Gives me:
    397.67 cals
    38.50g Protein (Might add another ounce to up this!)
    26.30g Carbs
    14.23g Fat

    Meal #4 - 3:30
    1.5 Oz of Whole Wheat Pasta
    8 Oz Chicken Breast (6oz + left over from morning)

    Gives me:
    372.15 cals
    44.35g Protein
    32.24g Carbs
    6.96g Fat

    Meal #5 - 5:30
    5 oz Eye of Round Steak
    Boiled, Skinless Potato
    2 Tablespoons of Salsa (for the potato) yummy!

    Gives me:
    377.50 cals
    43.72g Protein
    29.90 Carbs
    10.72g Fat

    Meal #6 - 8:00
    Protein Shake (extra half scoop)

    Gives me:
    350.00 cals
    50.00g Protein
    25.00g Carbs
    5.00g Fat


    TOTALS
    Cals = 2352
    Protein = 283.86g
    Carbs = 182.14g
    Fat = 54.81g

    Well, this is rough right now. Looking for feedback of ANY kind that will help me out.

    Thanks everyone,
    Twiztid

    Assuming you take 1 hour in the gym, I would move your post workout meal closer to 10am so that you refuel your body after your work out. And up your carbs in that meal. Other than that, looks pretty damn good!

    Good luck bro!

    Try to raise your fat intake up to ~15% and lower your carbs by 5%.Your last meal would be better if it was solid food and not a shake which is absorbed faster.Also,the 30gr of carbs in your postworkout should be maltodextrine and not oats.YOu could have some more carbs at this time and not eat any carbs at all in your last meal.

    I'm pretty sure the 50/30/10 is a typo ... shouldn't it be 50/30/20, Twiztid?

    You are eating enough kcals to lose fat, but not enough to gain muscle mass. As you gain muscle mass, your BMR will increase. How did you calculate your BMR? I would add about 30% (kcals) to the BMR value to allow for activity and growth. Maintaining muscle while dieting can be difficult and adding it more so. I also think you are heavy on the protein and should switch the protein and carb percentages around. If you want more advice let me know.
