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?

    no fruits while cutting?

    i wonder why some people don't eat fruits when cutting? i mean, do they prevent you from losing weight or make you lose muscle or something?

    Those people are just very confused. It's ok to eat fruit on a cut.

    You should gradually up your fiber intake to at least 25 grams a day and drink plenty of liquids. That'll keep you from getting the runs. Also, you really shouldn't eat fruits on an empty stomach...at least eat fruits with something else.

    i think in this situation is all about timing.....

    so for fruits i'd say the best time would be post workout.....or maybe pre to refill your muscle glycogen stores.

    How does that work when fructose is metabolised by the liver, refilling hepatic glycogen levels before spilling over into fat stores?

    On a low calorie diet sometimes leaves little room for fruit (really a horrible excuse not to eat fruit). I find that I don't eat it often, and it goes bad before I can eat it. Its not like the fruit is bad in any way, some people just dont eat it.

    If you're not eating much fruit, you should make it a point to eat more.

    Veggies are generally more nutrient dense than fruit. Brightly coloured fruits (such as berries) are typically higher in antioxidants and lower in carbs/calories. I eat berries whenever possible.

    I've read it's fine until you reached about 50g of fructose, then your liver will start storing fat. Now a single apple may have 20-30g of carbs, but that is a mixture of different sugars. The pure fructose content is pretty low (maybe 10-15g?) and it really shouldn't worry you.

    I like berries, but they only come in tiny little packages that cost like $3 each. I wish they would sell them by the lb., I would buy a ton of raspberries.

    Apparently Greapefruit is very good on a cut, is it something called nargin (spelling suck but it something like that) that helps aid in fat loss, I hate grapefuit and dont eat it on my cut so I dont know how well it works.

    Naringenin.

    Interesting.

    It appears naringenin is a flavonol that slows the normal metabolism of various drugs. Because this includes the metabolism of caffeine, it is postulated to be helpful in fat loss because it prolongs caffeine's thermogenic effect.

    I have NO idea if this has been tested. Lazy waves of apathy have taken me over ... maybe some kind soul will mozy over to pubmed for a gander?

    If it doesn't make you burn more calories. It won't aid in fat loss.

    Where do you get them in a 10 lb bag? Just a regular grocery store?
