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?

    Turkey- deli and fresh

    After reviewing a bunch of threads, it seems the consensus is that sliced deli meat from the supermarket is full of salt, nitrates and other preservatives. Does it follow that those big plastic-wrapped frozen turkey breasts have the same problem? I love deli turkey sandwiches, but have committed to being as healthy and clean as possible. I can't eat tuna 24-7. I'd be willing to roast a turkey breast and freeze it in weekly portions, but don't want to waste my time if it's just the same as the deli meat.

    yeah bro, they are just as bad. All they are is the same kind of processed meat, shaped into a "breast" shape.

    I've seen real turkey breast halves for sale, so if you can find those, and check the ingredients to make sure they didn't inject a bunch of sal****er or chicken broth, that'd be ok. Or maybe even ask the butcher.
    But those Jeani-O brand turkey breast 'loafs' are no better than the deli meat.

    And I don't think tuna is any better for you, it has tons of mercury. Unless you can afford to go organic you really have no other choice. I eat about a half pound of deli turkey a day and I'm still kickin' though.

    Tuna doesn't contain that much mercury, unless you start eating 2 cans a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Somewhere on this site there was a thread and someone actually did the math based on avg. mercury levels in a can of tuna. I think it turned out that 4-5 cans a week was completely safe.

    I actually read that thread, and as a result of it did some independent research, but I was replying to the OPs statement that "I can't eat tuna 24-7". I don't think that is healthy. Almost anything in moderation is fine.

    you can eat chunk light tuna everyday, albacore tuna on other hand wouldn't be to good to eat every day.

    yeah, albacore is a deep sea fish and has high a mercury content, but the chunk light has little to none in it and wont harm you.

    I thought deep sea fish had less mercury. :/
