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?

    How does one figure the caloric and fat content of salmon?

    It seems that each source I have read gives different caloric information for atlantic salmon. I have 6 oz. uncooked filets; any idea how many calories / fat / protein are in each? Fitday gives approximately 270 calories; FNIC gives approximately 300; other sources give 340. It's difficult to incorporate it into my diet when its macronutrient profile is indeterminate.

    Any ideas? Previously, I operated under the assumption that 6 oz of uncooked atlantic salmon contained 340 calories and 14 g of fat; is this correct?

    you gotta remember 6oz uncooked is gonna be a lot less once cooked.

    Here is the stats from the USDA for 6oz for raw Atlantic Salmon:
    Calories = 241
    Protein = 33g
    Fat = 11g

    I'd trust the USDA over any other site.

    our goal and they will be dreaming of the body we walk around with every
