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?

    What do you guys think?

    Trying to bulk the right way. Find out my maintence cals are 2,400 a day being 135 pounds. Not wanting to bulk too fast, I'm going to shoot for 3,000 calories a day to start and go from there. I've read 1-2 pounds a week is a good rule to follow for gaining weight. I do have some fat in some areas already at 135 pounds...mainly little in my pecs...so I don't want to gain weight too fast.
    I'll be doing WBB #1.

    My diet...

    Meal 1 in morning - Homemade weight gain shake.
    1,020 calories.
    65 grams of fat
    60 grams of carbs
    48 grams of protein

    Meal 2 - Randon sandwhichs
    PB and J or Tuna or Chicken breast, etc.

    Meal 3 - Bonless, skinless chicken breast or some sort of fish
    white/brown rice

    Meal 4 - Same shake as meal 1

    The shakes alone are over 2,000 calories, 130 grams of fat, 120 grams of carbs, and 64 grams of protein. I figure I'll have no problem reaching 3,000 cals a day with the combo of shakes plus eating.

    What do you think?

    I think you need more protein, and should ease up on the fats a bit.

    To be perfectly honest, I'm really not going to do the FitDay thing. The way I figure, I know for sure I'm getting at least 2,000 cals a day using my two shakes...I need 3,000 to start. By the way, do you guys think I should actually start higher at like 3,500? 3,000 seems very low.

    Anyway, so after my shakes I'll need 1,000 additional calories. I'm just going to eat stuff from that "what a bodybuilder eats" thread until I have 1,000 cals. It's pretty easy math when you just need to find 1,000 cals. I don't see why FitDay is needed. If I do go over a little bit....being 135 pounds...I should think it really doesn't matter.

    I hope the lack of replies means I'm doing things alright with diet? Someone on here said that I seem to be motivated to do things the right way, so I hope that rings true?

    i dont use fitday either, i usually just right it down on paper and add it up. my diet doesnt change much so i dont really have to add anything up unless i eat something different.

    it's difficult for me - and maybe some others - to say much unless i know what you're eating and in what proportions. so if you think your diet is okay, then go ahead.
