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?

    lowest weight?

    I was thinking about what i was doing last year to lose weight....
    i was working my ass off and not eating enough food

    I lost around 2lbs a week for like 20 weeks total of 32 lbs. I went from 222lbs to 190lbs. Anyway, when i got to 190lbs....i couldn't lose any more weight. I was stuck

    I wanted to know. Was that the lowest my body would go? Im about to start a cut now and get to 195lbs (203 now) and like, i dont want to feel like i did when i was 190...tired

    I've dieted like that a few times... you're always tired because you should only be losing .5-1lb a week. I've had some of those 2-3 lb loss per week, and you're tired because you eat almost no food; no carbs, no protein, no nothin'... It feels good to lose the weight, but then jump on and eat more healthy. I lost a lot by eatting very little, and now I'm on the way to lifting/eatting right to lose the last 5 lbs or so .5-1lb a week. Eatting more meat and a couple hundred more calories is nice. People always say Cuttin' is hard, but after you've had those 2-3lbs loss per week, like 1,000 cals in food... a cut the -real- way feels like cheating all the time ^^.

    How many calories were you eating before?

    extremely low calories + exercise = you feeling tired most of the time.

    Try a more moderate approach this time around.
    "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."
