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?

    Cereal good for bulking??

    Curious about your thoughts about this.

    T-Mag calls it "candy" in a way and doesn't really recommend it, but I was reading the Nutrition facts.. And ...

    2.5 cups of cereal is over 300 calories , along with 1.5 cups of milk, you are looking at nearly 500+ calories in just a bowl. It sounds like a winner to me. What do you all think?
    Squat = Not enough
    DL = Not enough
    Bench = Not enough

    Big 3 = Not enough

    Depends on the cereal. Stuff like wheaties/plain cheerios/grapenuts/shredded wheat are good sources of fiber/whole grain. Anything with added sugar is loaded with sugar. I lost nearly 70lbs eating a bowl of wheaties/milk for breakfast each morning.

    1 cup of quick oats is 300 cals, plus it's a lot more healthy than regular cereals.

    I switched to oats and love them. Can't get enough.

    1/2 cup oats, 1 scoop whey, splenda/cinammon is an awesome work snack.

    Not for bulking. That's only like 300 cals. Quadruple those servings and you have a decent snack .

    I eat grape nuts in large quantities with 1% milk. Each 1/2 cup serving of Grape nuts in 200 cals and I usually eat 1 1/2 cups plus 1 1/2 cups of milk. That's around 800 calories.

    Plus they keep you regular!!

    Agreed. I could easily eat 2 cups of oats in a sitting as a snack. Mix some natty PB and a mashed up banana in it for a decent snack.

    I do 1cup of oatmeal/ 2cups of skim milk/1 or 2 tbsp of natty PB/3/4cup of total protein cereal(just to add a nice crunch and its good for you) thats one combo I use for oatmeal. I don't mix in the cereal I just leave it ontop of the oatmeal b/c then the heat gets it all mushy and that destroys the whole purpose of putting in that little bit of cereal hehe.

    Unreal, I also lost a lot of weight eating cereal.. I was taking like 15 mg of ephedrine from GNC also. I went from a chubby 190ish to 135lbs at 6'. Now I'm up to 195lbs except I have a lot more muscle mass.
