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?

    School Getting In The Way

    I am a high school senior (as noted in my introduction thread). I would like to begin training, and have just started to get everything set up. The problem is I attend school 5 days a week from 8am to 2:30pm. I know I am supposed to eat about 6 small meals a day, but with 6 hours of my time being taken up in school, I'm finding it a bit challenging.

    My question is, is there anyway I can still get the foods I need that are small, compact, and require no preparation? Obviously no eating is allowed during school hours so I'd have to "sneak it". I really want to get this rolling, but this is a big problem. What would you reccomend?

    Protein bar during class change? Water protein shake if you are allowed to drink during class?

    6 small meals is not a neccesity (did I spell that right?)

    Just eat larger meals when you can.

    You can get at least one meal in during school, do you have lunch period?

    How much do you need to eat? If you start figureing out how many calories you need per meal, than you'll reliase it isn't that hard to do it in 3 meals per day. Also, a "meal" doesn't have to be like something you would eat with your family. A cup of peanuts with a glass of milk is a meal and is pushing 1k calories.

    I am trying to lift to get lean (my body fat % is pretty high right now, I'm overweight) and want to eat right. Would those bars help me? Seems like slamming 1k calories in 1 eating session would help me gain weight.

    I do have a lunch period btw. I'm probably going to start packing my lunch, because the crap they serve in school sucks. Another crappy thing is we can't drink anything during class, not even from a water bottle. In order to gauge how much water I drink I'd have to fill up a measured cup in the fountain and slam it in the hallway.

    This leads into another couple questions.

    1.)What is a good breakfast? I've recently stopped eating it all together because whenever I consume anything (even drinks) in the morning I tend to feel like crap. I can't really eat cereal because my body doesen't seem to like milk (cheese is okay sometimes).

    2.) And what would be a good lunch? It would have to be something that could fit in a brown bag that would stew in my locker for a few hours.

    Also, my training time will most likely be after I get out of school. Probably from 3:30 - 5:00 or somewhere in between. I'm going to have to write up a grocery list.

    Griever, I used to be a "I hate breakfast" type, too. Start small - a bagel w/ a moderate amount of spread and an egg or something. Gradually work your way up - I was slamming down 1000 calorie breakfast shakes in no time with literally no difficulty. There's a psychosomatic response to actually chewing, no? If you keep chewing real food, you're sending messages to your brain saying "I...am...eating." Try throwing down a healthy shake in the mornings - wouldn't kill you to blend up some fruit/protein powder/olive oil/etc.

    You won't gain weight unless you eat over your maintenance calories. You could eat your days worth of calories in one sitting, if you wanted to.
    The six meals a day thing is more of a comfort thing. If you're bulking, it's a lot easier to 1k calories in 6 meals than 2k in three. If you're cutting, it's more a matter of felling like you're always eating which can make you feel a lot better about eating very little.
