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?

    Gotta eat before a workout

    I'm posting this message on behalf of my aunt...she doesn't have a computer. She recently lost about 65 pounds over a period of 9 months. She did cardio with no weight training and now she needs to tone up. Her problem is that she has to eat first thing every morning, or she will get sick. Can anyone recommend a good food for her to eat where she will still get the most out of her workout? Thanx!

    As for my progress, I'm lifting weights three times a week, with no cardio and I'm averaging 2 pounds of fat loss per week. So far, I have maintained my lean weight, which is what I wanted to do. I've lost 2% of my body fat, since 11/29/01.

    How about a bowl of cereal with a banana?

    Two pounds a week is great. I am in the process of cutting also. What is your diet like?

    A typical day:

    (I spend my working day on the road, so I have to keep my lunch meal simple and convenient)

    2 cups of water, as soon as I get out of bed.

    Breakfast:
    Oatmeal, 1/4 cup dry measure, with Splenda and cinnamon
    1/2 cup of low-fat cottage cheese
    2 cups of water

    Mid-morning:
    Myoplex light shake, made with 2 cups of water

    Lunch:
    Carb Solutions Shake made with 1 cup of water
    1 Apple
    1 can of greenbeans (my fave veggie)
    1 cup of water

    Mid-afternoon:
    Myoplex light shake, made with two cups of water

    Dinner:
    1 palm-sized Salmon Filet, baked with Garlic-Herb Mrs. Dash and juice from 1/8 of a lemon
    1/2 cup brown rice or fist-sized sweet potato
    1 can of greenbeans or asparagus (my second-fave veggie)
    2 cups of water

    Mid-evening:
    Myoplex light shake made with 2 cups of water

    If I'm hungry near bed time, I'll eat 1/4 to 1/2 cup of low-fat cottage cheese. I drink two cups of water before bed.

    No wonder you are losing two pounds a week with no cardio. You have basically no fat, and very little carbs in your diet. I am not flaming, but how do you expect to build muscle with that diet?

    It sounds like a great diet for fat loss. But, arent you losing muscle also?

    I measure my lean mass weekly. It has remained consistent since I lost the extra water-weight I was carrying. If I start to lose muscle, I'll make the necessary changes to my diet.

    2lbs a week-mostly fat- is very possible w/out Cardio. Lifting burns more calories throughout the day than 30 minutes of cardio, as it raises your metabolism hours after you stop lifting.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
    Romans 7:14-25

    lol good wish. i live in louisiana and if you ever have been to louisiana you know how good the food is. there is no way i could stay on a good diet because as soon as i see a fried shrimp po-boy or a bowl of gumbo, there it goes. i think im still doin pretty good with only 13% body fat though i am trying to lower that level.

    Some Oats with a banana would be a good choice with some cottage cheese or yogurt.
