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?

    Another protein bar recipe!!!

    Iíve been trying for a while to concoct a recipe for decent protein bars. Most of the recipes Iíve seen are high calorie, fat, or sugar; and they are either really gooey or really really bone-dry. So, here is the recipe that Iíve come up with. I think the bars taste pretty good; they are portable; and they have the potential to be used for either cutting or bulking depending on any extra ingredients you add.

    Oven: 350

    In mixing bowl:
    • 3 egg whites
    • 1 Tbsp. EVOO
    • 3 scoops whey
    • Ĺ c. Cottage cheese
    • 1/3 c. Splenda
    • 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
    • ľ tsp. baking powder
    • ľ tsp. salt
    • Ĺ c. All-Bran
    • Ĺ c. Old Fashioned Oats

    In Pyrex measuring cup:
    • ľ c. boiling water
    • 1 pack Knox gelatin
    • ľ c. cold water
    • 2 tsp. instant coffee


    In the mixing bowl, mix all other ingredients before adding All-Bran and oats. I usually mix the egg whites, olive oil and whey before adding the other ingredients. I also like to add the contents of the Pyrex measuring cup to the mixing bowl before adding the All-Bran and oats.

    In the Pyrex measuring cup, dissolve the packet of gelatin in the boiling water (takes a few minutes to completely dissolve). Then stir in the instant coffee. Finally, add the cold water, mix it, and then stir it into the contents of the mixing bowl.

    At this point, add the oats and All-Bran, stir, and pour the entire mix into a 9 ľ x 6 Ĺ in. fudge pan (I use the disposable ones that you can get in the baking section for $0.98). Bake for 15 min at 350. Cool and cut. Store in the fridge.

    I have been cutting 5 bars from each recipe, which gives the following for each bar:

    Calories: 170
    Fat: 4g
    Carbs: 13g (including fiber)
    Fiber: 3g
    Protein: 23g

    This is a pretty basic recipe and would lend itself well to other additionsóIíve been considering nuts, pumpkin, bananas, cinnamon, raisins, natty (of course), etc. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy.

    If you can't be a good example, at least be a terrible warning.
