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?

    Just ate a bag of peanuts. Unhealthy?

    I just this minute finished a bag of salted peanuts I started eating about 1 hour ago.

    Nutrition information as follows per (100g) the bag was 200g

    Energy: 597 calories
    Protein: 25.4g
    Carbs: 13.8g
    Fat: 49.5g
    Fibre: 6.8g
    Sodium 0.4g

    I just wanted to get an idea of how unhealthy eating this bag of peanuts was.
    i know peanuts are very fattening. Ive just eaten nearly 100g of fat which is scary to think lol.

    You weigh 147. You want to gain weight. You're worried about eating 600 calories.

    Big picture man. Think about the big picture.

    Unhealthy? Try the opposite! Look at all the protein and fiber you got. Also, I guarantee more than 75% of those fats were un-saturated, nuts are a good source of EFA. Do this regularly if you'd like.

    wel, it was 1200 calories, not worried bout it though and all the protein and fibre will do me good. I was thinking of geting another 600g bag which i bought a week ago. it had a total of 3600 calories and i polished those off in a day too. I have heard that a lot of pro BB'ers do eat Peanuts. Is that true?

    ooo i love cashews. Just as much as peanuts. I think i mite have peanuts on a regular basis with my current diet, because i need the extra calories (with all the walking i do in the day) i do at least 10 miles of walking per day. (vigerous walking)
    Thanks for all the info and help guys.

    And for the person who posted "7 days...." what the?? lol

    I am cutting and I eat half a cup to a cup of peanuts a day. As long as it fits your macros and your calorie intake then it is fine. Peanuts are also a great source of quality fats.

    LOL, word. I've switched to 2% though as my dietary fats have a bit too high.

    peanuts are alright but when eaten that much they can actually be very bad for your body because they contain some toxic chemicals at their core. small amounts of those toxic chemicals won't do much harm to your body but a whole bag? i think you should watch for symptoms of breathlessness, chest pains and rapid heartbeat. any sign of those symptoms, get yourself to ER immediately and notify someone (in case you collapse on the way).
