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?

    Nicely played, Brian. Despite my lack of posting, I am being consistent as well- just far too busy to make organized posts on here. Just have a free night now because of lack of school tomorrow.

    Vacation should be fun...just pick an island not ravaged by the hurricane hell of '05. BTW, props on that PSMF diet, i seriously don't know how people survive that for more than a couple days.
    May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

    Damn bro I don't see how you do that low ass calorie ****. I think it would kill me hahaha. I eat about that much in one meal. You've got a lot better motivation than me.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    pants are fighting more loose already...tonight is going to be a full body style workout...missed workout last night because of a meeting at work

    and I have also got 12 oz bottles of gatorade to help with some energy during the workout.

    for the past 3 nights in a row i wake up at 3am STARVING. the heat stack is definitely helping with the energy some and i think it has upped my metabolism some.

    Nice. I bet you keep your sugars pretty low when on this?

    Have you discussed this with your Dr. at all? If so, what were his/her thoughts??

    eric: yeah my sugars stay pretty low...I discussed it with him when I was doing it before...and he was fine with it. My sugar will go up a little on saturday when i refeed. my last a1c was 6.5 which is very good for me. I just cant let them get to low that is all he was worried about. Once i get my weight back to where I want to be i may see if he will let me try controlling it with diet.
