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?

    Planning my journal

    Hello. I'm new around here. My nickname is Yeez, and I'm from Montreal.
    (ps: sorry for my written english, not my first language).

    I've been going to the gym, around 4days a week for about 3-4 months now.
    I'm 16, going to turn 17 in may. I'm about 156 pounds, and 5"9.

    I'm planning on doing a 15 weeks regime (food and hitting the gym a lot) starting February 4, finishing 17 may.
    Why 15 weeks? Because exam session starts after, and I won't have all the time avaible I do now.
    What will I do after those 15 weeks? Still hit the gym, maybe less than I used to, maybe 2-3 times a week. Mid july, I will get back on a similar program that I wanna get on right now, that untill the end of the summer.

    My diet right now its 99% Junk food... pizza almost everyday lol.
    Even with my crappy diet, I still lost around 20 pounds, from september to now, that just from weight lifting.. I don't do any kind of cardio.

    The main reason of my post here, besides keeping a journal up, its to ask you what I should eat... I've checked those forums a lot, and I know I should eat a lot of potatoes, eggs, tuna and chicken. What I don't know, its in what quantities, also, when... I know I should eat like 4-5x a day? But, what should I eat, and when? What should I eat before I hit the gym? And what should I eat after, when I get home?

    Here's my attack plan:

    Triceps, chest, abds and shoulders

    *Warm up*
    3 - 12x Decline Bench Press
    4 - 12x Tricep Cable Pushdown
    4 - 12x Butterfly
    4 - 12x Straight-Arm Dumbbell Pullover
    4 - 12x Side Lateral Raise
    3 - 12x Smith Incline Shoulder Raise
    4 - 25x abds

    Biceps, back

    *Warm up*
    4 - 12x Seated Cable Rows
    4 - 12x Hyperextensions (Back Extensions)
    4 - 12x I don't know whats called, its a back exercise at cords, that you pull the it from over your head down to your chest
    6-8 - 20x biceps (8 pounds, due to bone problems, I can't work my biceps with more than 8-9 pound)
    4 - 12x Palms-Up Barbell Wrist Curl Over A Bench

    Cardio + legs

    Different cardio, didn't decide yet ( maybe you guys can give me a few ideas?)
    Any good exercices? I don't really work those right now.

    *same as sundays*

    *same as modays*

    Fridays: relax
    Saturdays: relax

    Well,thx for checking it up, and maybe I'll get a few advices.

    Eat when you're hungry. How much depends on your goals and your metabolism.

    As for the routine, I'd suggest doing a search for WBB1, WBB2, WBB3 or BGB

    As for the food, thats my problem.. I dont eat a lot, and I could stay all day eating just 2 buiscuits all day, and won't be hungry...
