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?

    Protein powder is upsetting the stomach..

    I've been using Muscle Milk since I started lifting about 1 year and a half ago. Lately everytime I have protein after my lift it causes bloating and diarrhea. I haven't been having the protein lately because I lift between classes and getting stomach cramps during my physical chem lab is not fun at all.

    My normal shake is about 8-10 oz of whole milk, two scoops muscle milk, and a large teaspoon of Skippy peanut butter.

    My diet, I will admit, is horrible. I never seem to eat a lot, and I snack alot. Lately I've been trying to switch to 'healthier' snacks (quaker 'Quakes' rice snacks, goldfish) and trying too drink more water. Usually lunch consists of an 8" sub or wrap (ham, turkey, american cheese, lettuce, mayo), dinner is usually chicken fingers with fries or a salad (caf food).


    Anyways I'm wondering is it the protein itself that's causing it or is it just that it's running straight through my system.

    Gold fish aren't healthy, by the way. And I'd urge you to ditch the Skippy and get yourself some good quality natural peanut butter. I'm a big fan of Adams Crunchy, salted. Delicious.

    Muscle Milk is a pricey way to get in your protein. Maybe just use regular protein powder (whey, or Nitrean), toss in some dextrose as required, maybe do what a lot of the guys here do and powder up some oatmeal to put into your shake, some olive oil and or peanut butter, milk - see how that works for you.

    Well I was thinking of switching to whey protein because muscle milk is expensive, though I do love the taste of the muscle milk.

    But even if I switch to a different brand I don't see how that would solve my problem with the cramps and diarrhea.

    Any good suggestions other than peanuts and hardboiled eggs for snacks?

    Getting rid of all the crappy junkfood, I've tried before but always get sucked back in. So if you guys have any suggestions for healthier snacks that are good for bulking lemme know.

    Built? What is wrong with goldfish? You can get them for pretty cheap at the pet store and they are probably full of protein. 4.5 cents a piece is pretty cheap for protein.

    Fat free columbo yogurt is one of my favorite snacks...mixed berry is delicious

    As for your stomach cramps after the shakes...maybe it's the milk...try drinkin milk by itself (the same amount as the shake) and see if your stomach feel weird. I dunno just a thought

    You could make your own protein bars. Check the reicpe section - some of them are pretty good.
