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?

    New Bulking Diet...

    This is my new bulking diet I have put together, please feel free to rip it to shreds and tell me what I should change if need be.

    Meal 1: Four Large Eggs with Two Slices 100% WW Toast - 550 Calories
    Meal 2: NPB Sandwhich on 100% WW - 350 Calories
    Meal 3: 8oz Chicken Breast and a small Apple - 170 Calories
    Meal 4: NPB Sandwich on 100% WW - 350 Calories
    Meal 5: 16oz Chicken Breast and Pinto Beans - 880 Calories
    Meal 6: Not sure what to put here, I figured a nice big steak and a potato?
    Total: 2300
    When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.

    Meal 1...I would go with less whole eggs and more egg whites. Four whole eggs is a lot of fat for one meal, even if your bulking (and I remember you were almost deciding to cut....). Also, maybe oatmeal instead of bread....

    Meal 2....Not much protein in there. Make it a turkey sandwich.

    Meal 3....Ok I guess

    Meal 4...See comments on meal 2

    Meal 5....OK

    Meal 6....Depends on what time this meal is...might not want a big potato before bed.

    Overall you need more calories. Also, I dunno about 6 pieces of bread in a day...mix it up a little. Have oatmeal for breakfast instead of bread.

    Skim Milk 25g(90 calories - 8.8g protein - 0.3g fat - 13g carb as lactose) (milk sugar) + more quick oats or egg whites in a shake maybe?

    Drink lots of that to make up calories.

    How would I prepare that? Just drop it all in?

    Oh, and also, am I eating too many beans? That last meal of 880 calories has 770 of them coming from pinto beans.

    i dont see a problem with the pb sandwich as your total fats are quite low now.
    i also don't see how you are going to bulk on 2300 cals .. but that's just my opinion.

    add the pb sandwich with your chkn and apple if you feel like it. or try adding rice, potatoes, yams to your chicken for more cals. i think you need to include more fat sources (olive oil, avocado, pb or nuts for instance) and this will quickly bump your cals for the day.
    add a post w/o shake ( i am assuming you are working out) for additional calories.

    try your new diet for a week or two - see if you are feeling stronger and are gaining weight. if not, then time to add some more to it.

    Where are you getting your numbers from? I'm not sure if your chicken is with or without bone/skin, cooking method etc., but fitday.com lists a 16oz w/bone skin not eaten, roasted chicken breast as 400 cals. And you'd have to eat almost 4 cups of pinto beans to get 770 cals from them. Maybe you got the numbers reversed?

    My chicken is boneless/skinless and says 110 calories per 112g(4oz) and the beans are 110 calories per serving and the can has six servings. (I am eating the whole can :x)

    Why is your last meal of the day so big? Your meals seem to get bigger as the day goes on, when really you want the opposite. Why eat a 900 calorie meal at night...instead eat a 500 calorie meal and spread the extra calories throughout the day. And why are you eating so many damn beans? 4 servings of beans is like 80g complex carbs.

    Because I suck at getting a nice balanced diet together. Can I add more oatmeal and other stuff earlier in the day? Maybe have 200g of turkey on each sandwich instead of 100? I had a hard time getting 8oz of chicken in at lunch. Was a lot.

    Add like 5 meals/1.5x calories to each meal to what you got there and you are beginning to get on the right track.

    I just put this together as breakfast...
    Six Egg Whites - 132 (22 Per Egg White)
    One Lage Egg - 75 Calories
    One Cup Oatmeal - 300 Calories
    Two tbsp natural PB - 210 Calories
    Two slices 100% WW Toast - 140 Calories
    Total - 857

    I am working on a better pre-lunch meal and lunch right now, I am trying to stay away from a lot of bread unless there is no need to?

    That looks way better than what you had before. Just add like 100-200 cals to each other meal you have there and you should have a pretty good diet going.

    Well that's better, but I don't think there's any reason why you have to have 900 calories in your first meal and then less than 300 in all the other ones.

    When I said you want your biggeset meals earlier, I didn't mean your first meal has to be like 3 times bigger than all the others.

    If you're going for 2400 calories over 5 meals, why don't you just go like 600, 500, 450, 450, 450 or something?

    Don't be afraid of another egg yolk or two - if you can spare the calories, they're very nutrient dense, and saturated animal fat is helpful for increasing test and putting on muscle mass. Bulking or cutting, my first meal of the day is always just protein and fat, although many to also include carbs such as oatmeal with their breakfast, in which case you want some fat, but perhaps not quite as much.

    2400 cals isn't a lot for your size for bulking. I'm cutting on 2000 right now, and I'm a middle-aged woman who's smaller than you.

    Eat up!

    Well, my reason for smaller meals during the day is that I can not really prepare nice size meals for my day with school, so my meals would just be a lot of sandwiches if I did that. If if is ok to just eat a lot of sandwiches I would be more than glad to do so. :P By the way, I think I added way too much cinnamon to my oatmeal, I put a small spoon full and it is dark brown and loaded with spiceyness. :P

    Just use good quality, whole-meal bread, with LOTS of filling. Read the labels to make sure the bread is a good one. Something heavy and grainy, with as little processing as possible, would be a good choice.

    If you don't have a problem with fat gain, I don't see why not.

    Fat gain? Eep. That scares me. I am afraid of gaining fat. I am a fast fat gainer, I just got done dropping 100 pounds or so.
