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?

    Diet for Strength...

    I'm not too smart in the diet area so I need some Right now im about 17%bf weighing 185 lbs. After this meet on Saturday I wanna lose some fat to make room for more muscle but I'm confused which diet to go for?? I was thinking keto until I heard about losing alot of strength but i hear this is the best for fat loss, then I was thinkin about just going really high protein with some carbs befor and after workout but i dont know if that would work. So....anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    It is extremely difficult to maintain all of your strength while in caloric defecit, unless you have a stellar diet suited to your own individual needs or superior genetics.

    I would try to balance at least 6 meals a day, rotating between carb meals and fat meals every other, being sure to get a good source of complex carbohydrates about 1.5-2 hours before my workout, and a high glycemic carbohydrate post workout.

    What I used to do...

    Days that I would lift and not run, I would eat a carb source before my workout. The same for days I would both lift and run, because I am glycogen depleted after my workout anyway, and with a complex carbohydrate source I am not in the presence of really high insulin levels.

    Days that I would run only, I would not eat carbohydrates 2 hours before I ran, but rather a small portion of fat and some protein, in order to keep glycogen lower. I would then wait 20-25 minutes post cardio and eat a high glycemic carbohydrate source.

    Some may disagree with that, but I found it to work well.

    Honestly, you must find your own needs. But those are some suggestions.

    Do you perform Cardio ???

    First Avenue to try would be to include some cardio in your training sched.

    Just 2 -3 times a week.

    Thanks for the suggestions Reality Youth. Yates, right now the only cardio i do is in my Phys.Ed class. That would probly equal 30 mins a day for 5 days a week. Right now i can get a good deal on protein so i can have alot of it a day if i need to.
