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?

    I presently eat a diet of 215-230g of protein and 300-315g of carbs, & drinking 3 litres of water and 40/less grams of fat. Since I started eating like this I noticed that every day except for sunday(which is my one day where I don't watch what I eat) I wake up 2-3 times a night during my 11:30-6:30 sleep period. And I was wondering if there is anything I could do to stop this w/o
    decreasing my protein intake as I have been making excellent gains

    I'm not aware of any correlation between that type of diet and sleep trouble.

    Are you waking up to go to the bathroom, or do you just wake up?

    Anything else change other than the diet?

    I'm confused. You do or do not have to relieve yourself, and is that what is waking you up?

    I don't see how a high pro diet would do that... I'll do some checking, though...

    Did you change the timing of your meals...do you eat right before you go to bed, anything like that?

    To summize since I started taking my bodybuilding seeriously by eating a diet consisting of 215+ grams of protein and 315+ grams of carbs I noticed that now except for my cheat day I constantly have to pee, more so when i'm sleeping and I wake up 2-3 times during my 8 hour sleep period. This doesn't disrupt my gains but I do find it annoying and drinking lots of water doesn't help

    Ah HA!

    Stop drinking water 1.5 hours before you go to bed, and taper it off later in the day.

    Sure.

    It takes about an hour for water to make it thru your system (a glass of water consumed at 9 will be eliminated around 10 or so)

    I had the same problem but I wised up to it. I'd wake up two times a night to ****, now if I do wake up I wake up right before my alarm goes off, so no prob. I usually take in most of my water at like 7-9pm, so by the time I go to bed at midnight I'm cool.

    Ellington Darden brought up a point that if you want to minimize the trips to the washroom at night do not drink any water after about 5:00.
    Now if you work out in the evening then what Paul said would be very helpful.
