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?

    Protein Bar

    Today I had my first ever protein bar and I must say it was much better then I expected. I had nothing to eat on break b/c I rushed to work so I bought one. I got a Detour bar it had 330cals 9g of fat-5from sat, 0 trans, 32g of carbs and 31g of protein. Was wonderin if I made a good choice or not and if anyone had any other tasty suggestions?

    Oh and btw it was a white chooclate peanut butter caramel one if that does anything=)

    Detours are great. I haven't had a bar in years.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    I some protein bars kicking around the house. Definitely something good to have when you don't have much time.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    so many bars out there are filled with bad fats, or list the glycerin content as part of the protein content.
    Some are ok, some aren't. Best not to rely on them too much, but when traveling or if you're caught without 'real' food, they're better than nothing.

    I really like Kong bars. They migh be a bit much for smaller men, women, or anyone who's cutting, but they have oats in them and whey protein with minimal sugar content.

    Better than a bag of chips or something, but there is usually so much crap in them and they are a fortune. Detours are probably the best tasting I've tried though, yum.

    I eat the 20g protein cliff bars once in a while if I know I can't have a meal for an extended period of time, chocolate and pb flavor, pretty good. =)

    I always eat PowerBar Protein Plus bars; they have a ton of protein in them and they don't taste bad at all; actually quite good if you ask me... Plus the DV fat is 8% and sat-fat is 10%; pretty low IMO.
