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?

    This is final yr of school, and yes it is very stressful and tight schedules.
    I want to take atleast 3-4 weeks off from my workout schedule. SO basically, that means I wont be hitting the gym, or maybe only once or twice a week for cardio during these 3-4 weeks.

    I'm still sticking with the 45carb/30prot/25fat ~2100cal diet, but to satisfy the protein rqmnts i'm thinking of taking whey protien once in the morning and one at night before sleeping. If I follow this diet for 3-4 weeks, I know I'll lose some mass/strenght(but i'll gain in back) but is this diet advisable?

    Thanks, will appreciate your input.

    Eat at maintenance or a bit's not rocket science.

    This might be the right time for a break. I usually don't get adequate sleep during finals so that's when I decide to take a complete week off. But keep your diet around maintainance levels. Good luck
