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?

    Question: Maintain & Gain?

    First off, I've been reading these forums for the past week and I wanted to say, they're an excellent source of info. In doing my searches, I've found the same question asked many times, regarding cutting and trying to get stronger. It seems the previaling wisdom on this one is; it's possible, but not likely.

    I've been lifting 3/4 times per week, for close to two years. I'm 37, 5' 11" and weigh 182. While I'm happy with what I achieved, but think I could have achieved more, and would like to do what I can to head in that direction. Partly, I think the problem was, I wasn't taking in near enough protein (almost zero supplementation). While my diet wasn't bad (My-O-Plex bar for breakfast, chicken salad and pretzels for lunch, lettuce with diced chicken, cheddar cheese and ranch dressing for dinner) I wasn't eating what a body builder "should" eat. So, my question is, can I expect to see gains if:

    - I only eat my 15 grams of calories per pound (maintenance)
    - I eat my 1.0 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound
    - up my training intensity
    - begin to supplement my diet with ON 100% Whey (mornings and afternoons), Nitrean (evenings), protein/createan/detrose PWO shake
    - Make an effort to get my alotted fats from fish oils, natty PB and mixed nuts

    Or do I need to up caloric intake to 17/18 grams per pound?
