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?

    Being lactose intolerant.

    As long as I get my calcium from pill form or fortified orange juice I should really have to worry about getting anything 'special' out of dairy will I?

    Also, is it bad if I'm trying to get really ripped looking with my abs and to get rid of my love handles, is it bad for me to be consuming a lot of fruit based products to get my potassium instead of out of vegetables and so forth? It won't slow the process or anything will it eating a lot of carbs?

    If you're getting plenty of calcium, you don't need milk. I love milk and I'm lactose intolerant, but I just take the enzyme and I'm fine.

    It's better to get your nutrients from real food like vegetables. Not only that, but vegetables contain fiber, which is good for your digestive system.

    Carbs won't make you fat. Fat won't make you fat. Protein won't make you fat. Eating excess calories will make you fat. As long as you're burning more than you're taking in, you'll lose weight. And it's always best to get fruit from the fruit itself. Solid fruit > fruit juice.

    What's your diet like? What's your training routine look like? You're not going to get rid of your love handles and reveal your abs by not eating carbs. That is strictly a result of caloric deficit. Are you tracking your calories? If you're not, you need to start doing that.
