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?

    Weighing meat and rice question

    Okay, how do you guys wiegh meat? Do you cut it up like it says in fitday? Or do you weigh it on a scale? And for rice, do you think its healthy to eat, or too fatning, or good for carbs or what?

    i think potatoes are superior to rice but they dont have as much fiber
    better is non-processed rice
    and no it's not fattening

    as for meat i used to weigh it at first, after a couple of weeks i can eyeball the weigh, also if you buy a chunk of 1lb and cut it almost equal pieces that's legit also. you don't have to weigh to the milligram

    i like to eat protein with carbs, so steak with potatoes, chicken with rice
    i'd have a bagel or bread with my meal and a salad with olive oil
    green beans are good, they have some protein

    and MILK...

    did I say how much I LOVE milk !!!

    With rice I would stick with brown rice.

    Potatoes are good.

    And for change try some whole wheat pastas.

    As for a vegetable- try etamame - it is a little pea like plant (comes in a pod) that you can buy frozen a lot. Packed with soy protein and tastes good with some salt/pepper. Lima beans, kidney beans, basically any sort of bean will have a good amount of protein in it.
