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?

    How much do you count?

    Well im trying to be as accurate as possible on what im taking in and here is what i'd like to know. I use 1 Tbsp of olive oil when I stir fry my chicken/turkey w/e meat, how much of the oil am I actually eating I hope the whole Tbsp I need my cals! Should I just count the whole Tbsp?

    I add in what I figure I get in the day from oil/butter. If in doubt, I overestimate it slightly. For example, I figure I get in a tablespoon of butter a day on veggies, frying steak etc. I sometimes prepare my food ahead of time in batches so it's not always exact, but it's probably pretty darned close.

    If and when I get stalled, I'll re-evaluate my methodology.

    So far, so good.

    i agree with built. i think the key is to be consistent. if u start going in the wrong direction (depending on your goal), then adjust accordingly. there's no way to know exactly how much you're eating.

    Hmm okay I'd say I get about 3/4 of that Tbsp b/c what I do is, Ill put the tbsp in the pan and put my chicken in, when chicken is done ill throw in some vegtables, and then I usually have it with some WWbread or WW wrap and ill put that in pan to so that it gets a little toasty and hopefully absorb w/e is left of that oil. I guess im getting about 3/4 of that tbsp.

    The only thing I fry are eggs and fitday has a thing for fried eggs so I just use that. When it comes to meats I use ballpark figures. I can usually tell how many ounces it is by looking. If you are using fitday maybe they have an option for fried chicken.

    They do. They have an option for just about fried everything. Well, meats that is.
