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?

    Weight / Fat loss diet - opinions wanted

    Hey all !!

    I'm new to the boards and have been looking around, reading, and getting a LOT of good information. I'm trying to come up with a good diet that will help me sread off unwanted fat and weight, while aslo maintaining the muscle that I DO have and gaining some more. I know, its the classic struggle or losing one while wanting another; honestly, I'd be happy with just dropping the fat / weight and then taking on the next task of building.

    A little about me (If you want to just skip down to my diet plan, feel free). I'm no stranger to the gym, I just lost track of my goals and have been out for a few years and I'm looking to get back to where I was. Right now, I'm 35 y/o, 6'1, 265, and I'm guessing probably 25% body fat; I'm a "big guy", I always have been. My job offers little to no physical activity, so all the exercise I'll be getting is when I goto the gym or happen to be outside on the weekends. My resting Hear Rate is usually around 60.

    My Plan:

    Meal 1 (Shake)
    Protein Powder - 120 Cal, 2 Fat, 35 Protein
    1 1/2 cup non fat milk - 129 Cal, 12 Carb, 8 Protein
    Bananna (large) - 121 Cal, 31 Carb, 1 Protein
    Omega 3 (2 cap) 17.5 Cal, 17.5 Fat
    (Total:387 Cal, 19.5 Fat, 43 Carb, 44 Protein)

    Meal 2
    3/4 Cup Brown Rice - 163 Cal, 1.35 Fat, 33.75 Carb, 3.75 Protein
    1 can tuna - 150 Cal, 1.25 Fat, 32.5 Protein
    1 cup Broccoli / Cauliflower - 25 Cal, 4 Carb, 2 Protein
    (Total: 338 Cal, 2.6 Fat, 37.75 Carb, 38.25 Protein)

    Meal 3
    (Total: 338 Cal, 2.6 Fat, 37.75 Carb, 38.25 Protein)

    Meal 4
    3/4 cup Brown Rice - 163 Cal, 1.35 Fat, 33.75 Carb, 3.75 Protein
    4oz Chicken Breast - 120 Cal, 3 Fat, 21 Protein
    1./8 cup Walnuts - 95 Cal, 9.5 Fat, 2 Carb, 2.25 Protein
    Total: 378 Cal, 13.85 Fat, 35.75 Carb, 27 Protein

    Meal 5 (Shake)
    (Total:387 Cal, 19.5 Fat, 43 Carb, 44 Protein)

    I plan on adding an extra can of tuna before or after my workout for the extra protein, so add:

    150 Cal, 1.25 Fat, 32.5 Protein

    Cal - 1978
    Fat - 59.75
    Carb - 197.25
    Protein - 224

    I know its a lot of tuna, but I love it. The past 3 months its been a main staple; I've pretty much stopped eating for the enjoyment of taste as I am focused on my goal of getting in shape.

    Feel free to suggest different foods, change of plan, etc; its why I am posting.

    For a quick reference, I get to the gym 4 times a week.
    Back / Bi / abs
    Chest / tri / abs
    Shoulders / traps / abs
    Legs / abs
    I try to get 3 sessions of cardio a week keeping my heart rate at 130ish and I go for 30 mins ( I plan on raising it to 4-5 times a week). I'll be posting in the other forums to try a new workout and give more detail on what I actually do in the gym for each day.

    Thanks, in advance, for all / any advice !!!
