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?

    Critique my Cutting Diet


    23/yr male, 5'6, 160pounds ~ 16% bf. I have a desk job which requires me to sit in front of a computer 9-10 hours a day. My goal is to get down to 150 within the next 3 months and to get to 10-13% and preserve as much muscle and strength as I can. I use to workout maybe 3-4 times a week about a year ago but after graduating college it's down to maybe 1-2 times a week (at most 3). I'm also taking Stimulant X right now as a thermo, 1 pill in the morning with my morning meal.

    8am: 1 whole egg, 2 egg whites, a piece of medium size fruit

    11am: 1.5 scoops protein, slice of WW bread

    1:30pm: half a cup of veggies, quarter cup of rice, 4-6oz of chicken

    4:00pm: 1.5 scoops of protein, slice of WW bread

    7:00pm: cup of mixed veggies, quarter cup of rice, 6-8oz of chicken

    10:00pm: scoop of protein, and a handful of trail mix (nuts & dried berries)

    I don't know the exact macros but I'm guessing the diet comes close to 2000 calories, 180-200 grams of carbs, 180-200 grams of protein and
    maybe 30-50 grams of fat. On workout days I usually add another meal like my 11am & 4:00pm meal right after my workout. My cheat meal consisits of 6-12 drinks on friday.

    For my workouts I usually combine two big main body parts into a workout, chest/back and legs/shoulders. I basically focus on one main exercise per bodypart and work up to one set at 90% of my max. Then I train with 2-3 supplemental exercises at 60-70% of my max.

    Are my goals realistic given my diet/workout? Does my diet need to be changed? Do I need cardio?

    Thanks for any advice in advance.

    -Id reccomend not cheating every week, ESPECIALLY if you cheat is drinking. Find out you macros.
    -Look into carb cycling, cup of rice in the middle of the day is not doin you any good really, besides maybe filling you up.
    Complication breeds desperation.
