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'm gaining weight! But..

    It's all going to my gut. My stomach gets bigger but my body stays the same. So far I've gained 7 pounds and it looks like my arms gained a LITTLE LITTLE bit of size but it's mostly my stomach. I've cut out all chocolate and sugary foods. Except juice. All I eat is white bread, chicken, beef, fish, rice, mashed potatoes, pork, cashews. Healthy foods. Any ideas? Is my stomach adapting first and THEN I get bigger?

    How many grams of protein, fat, carbs, and total calories are you consuming every day? And white bread isn't healthy. And you should eat fruit, not drink it.

    Also, what does your workout routine look like? And how long did it take you to gain this 7 pounds?

    Your stomach doesnt reverse fat storage like that.

    I'm thinking its probably your diet. You have to count calories, even seasoned lifters usually count calories.

    You're also probably not training hard enough. A hard lifter can have pretty generous partitioning even if they eat alot of junk.

    you need to do some reading on healthy foods, white bread is in no way healthy, it's a slice of sugar.

    More importantly, are you lifting weights? And if so whats your routine like?

    I would think it to be very hard to add size with any kind of respectable pace unless your training in the weight room.
