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?

    amount of food on off days?

    i ve just started to take weights seriously and i am trying to bulk but by putting on a minimal amount of fat and max muscle. if i go to the gym 3 times a week (every second day), should i eat the same amount of food on my off days as i do on my on days or do i eat less on the days i take off?
    any advice would be great.......Thanks

    I eat around 6000-7000 cals on an off day, on an "On" day I will consume 8000 - Mostly due to a pre and post workout nutrition. Some do, some don't.

    Surprsingly, eating a lot *may* help you with gaining muscle and a minimal amount of fat. Protein is the only thing that can actually develop muscle (when you work out with it, of course). For this case, more is less, thats the way some people like to put it. But if you eat more, your metabolism will work faster.

    You need to stop telling everyone that because it's flat out wrong.

    If you're planning on bulking you're going to gain fat...it's a given. You can't add loads of muscle mass and barely gain fat. It's simply not going to happen unless you have amazing genetics.

    If you don't have a solid routine down I'd recommend this: http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=25

    Yes...it IS all about hard work and diet. But your genetics isn't going to just pack a suitcase and leave. It's there to stay.

    I would agree, but I would also agree than you can put on a decent amount of muscle (not as much as if you truely bulked) and lose fat at the same time. I've done a lot of researching on this guy who has had great success at doing this, I'm still skeptical of this as of now, but it looks like its working so far. And these diets are on people who aren't experiencing their newbie gains anymore.
