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?

    Found this today ... it's based on info from the American Heart Association.


    ********
    Saturated fatty acids. Less than 10% of calories for prevention of high cholesterol; less than 7% of calories for reversal of high cholesterol.

    Polyunsaturated fatty acids. No more than 10% of calories.

    Monounsaturated fatty acids. About 10% to 15% of total calories.

    Your total cholesterol intake should be no more than 300 milligrams per day.

    Your sodium intake should be limited to no more than 2,400 milligrams (2.4 g, about 1 ľ teaspoons of table salt) per day.
    ********

    Based on those numbers, I'd say natural peanut butter is a damn near perfect fat source.

    Another note, I remember reading a post by Chris regarding cholesterol intake. He stated that it was the overall intake of fat that would raise cholesterol, not the actual consumption of cholesterol.

    Close, but I wanted to clarify: Your body's LDL (bad cholesterol) is affected more by the intake of saturated fats than the intake of cholesterol - although intake of cholesterol can still affect it.

    Hope this helps!

    "Your sodium intake should be limited to no more than 2,400 milligrams (2.4 g, about 1 ľ teaspoons of table salt) per day. "


    Anthony 2.4 grams of soduim - is not the same as 2.4 grams of salt. Soduim in the salt would increase the amount of salt allowed to nearly 6 grams of total salt. I have not read the finding but so i could be the opposite way round.

    Body, sorry if that wasn't clear, but I think the article was simply stating that 2400mg = 2.4g and THEN relating it to salt ... ie, 1.25 teaspoons of table salt = 2.4g of sodium.
