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?

    The Ultimate Diet?

    Hey guys, I'm a newbie here, and after sitting on my ass for the past 2 years, it's time to get back into shape. I'm skinny as hell right now, between the 120-130 range (I know ridiculous). Anyway, I'm just 20 years old right now, but my schedule is EXTREMLY (school, work, girl, music practice) busy.

    Anyway, I'm trying to gain weight big time (at least another 20-25 lbs). I know that's going to take quite the dedication, but I've decided that I'm going to do it. First though, I need a diet, and I'm willing to break my ways (fast food everyday) to gain weight.

    Does anyone have a diet that they can share with me that works? Please take into account that I'm always on the go if possible, but I can always bring a lunch to work, etc. I know a lot of proteins is a necessity, but does anyone have a complete diet that I can begin following this Monday?

    It is what it is...

    try this diet and see what happens:

    pro-cal-carb
    5 am 1 protein shake+1 serving of rice 21-285-38

    6:30am 100g dextrose+2.5scoops of whey 52.5-550-100

    7:20am 1chicken breast+2 servings cream of
    of wheat+1 bagel+1protein shake 50-785-103

    9:30am 1chicken breast+2 servings rice+1/2
    protein shake+1 serving flaxseed oil 40-600-71

    12pm 1chicken breast+2 servings rice+1/2
    protein shake+1 whole egg+2 egg whites 52.5-635-71

    2:30pm 1 can tuna+1 whole egg+2 egg whites+
    1/2protein shake+2 servings of rice+1
    serving flaxseedoil 55-790-71

    5pm 1 can tuna+1 whole egg+2 egg whites+
    1/2protein shake+1 serving cream of
    wheat+1 banana 55-570-53

    8pm 1 can tuna+1 whole egg+2 egg whites+
    1/2protein shake+1 serving flaxseed oil 55-450-3

    12pm 1 protein shake 21-115-3


    Thats a total of: 402g protein
    4,780 calories
    513g carbs

    now, this may seem like a lot, but remember, in order to put on more weight, in terms of muscle, you need to keep your body in an anabolic mode - meaning that you need to eat every 2-3 hours. You need 2-3 grams of carbs per pound of body weight and 1-2 grams of protein per pound of body weight.
    good luck!

    someone at a buck 20 does not need nearly 5000 calories and 400g of protein / day to build muscle mass.

    you will put on weights that for sure. though I do not see the point of having a 100 grams of dextrose.
    Also I would not want to be eating at 12:00pm if i am getting up at 5:30AM. aless you are going back to sleep.

    well if I were you and I really wanted to gain weight I'd prolly lift heavy, eat tons of cheeseburgers and milke shakes, and get some rest every night.

    screw a specialized diet, this is one skinny guy, I mean what does he need a bag of chicken breasts for?

    You may eat that every day but what else are you eating also - you have to take the whole day into account

    Jdiddy:

    Just eat clean. Track your measurements every week (weight, bf%, etc...) if you are not gaining any muscle up the cals a bit and see what happens. Make sure you train HARD and eat CLEAN. Course cheat meals/days wont hurt ya too bad while bulking.

    Read some of the articles on the home page (or at the pulldown menu at the top of this forum topic).
