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?

    Where's the trans fat info? That would certainly be something to look out for.

    TV dinners there's nothin' else to eat
    TV dinners they really can't be beat
    I like 'em frozen but you understand
    I throw 'em in and wave 'em and I'm a brand new man.

    TV dinners they're goin' to my head
    TV dinners my skin is turnin' red
    Twenty year old turkey in a thirty year old tin
    I can't wait until tomorrow.... and thaw one out again.

    TV dinners I'm feelin' kinda rough
    TV dinners this one's kinda tough
    I like the enchiladas and the teriaki too
    I even like the chicken if.... the sauce is not too blue.
    Squats work better than supplements.

    Until I heard Built recommend chicken soup, I had a tv dinner for my post work out meal.

    But yeah, most think they aren't that great because of high sodium. But I kinda liked that after a work out.

    Depends on the sauce and how much.

    On a side note, I think those TV-Dinners are dinky and nasty... I havn't had one in ages. Soup is better... As far sodium, I don't worry too much since I never exceed 1g most days anyway. So getting another 400mg through a random TV dinner isn't much. Keep in mind, you can go up to about 2g of sodium a day and be well within the recomended limits.

    When I'm cutting I eat a healthy choice at night or when I need a full meal. I don't usually eat other tv dinners though.

    BBQ sauce has brown sugar in it sometimes
    "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."

    Nearly all condiments have either sugar or fat. Ketchup, Honey Mustard, BBQ Sauce, A1 Steak Sauce, etc... 19g of sugar is 76 calories, which is about right. Nothing seems abnormal there for a few servings sizes of condiments.

    Mainly the salt and the fact they just don't taste as good as the real thing.

    For awhile a canadian company was making some really good frozen dinners, that were high in protein and fibre but low in total cals and salt, etc. They were expensive because of this and ended up being discontinued. When it comes to food, people often choose price over quality.
    That's a picture of Scarlett Johansson.
