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?

    First Time Cut

    Ok, I think I have read enough around here to put together a good cutting plan for myself. I am trying to lose (with one 'o') around 10-15 lbs for a trip to FL in march. I recently tried a short bulk in which I gained around 20 lbs and now I wish to try my short cut, hopefully it will be a valuable learning experience and I want to use what Ive learned so far to bulk to around 200 at the end of the summer...

    But I digress.

    I didnt like fitday for my bulk, mainly because I ate too much and didnt keep a record of what I did eat (thats not to say I didnt eat right...), but for my cut It seems a bit easier. I bulked at around 4000 cals, but my metabolism sped up greatly at the time (before I was maintaing on around 3000). I feel that around 2300 calories would be a good place to start my cut, as I expect my metabolism to slow down a bit.

    I am taking a multivitamin, and am getting fish oil caps (to replace olive oil). Im not sure if it matters, but I am supplementing with creatine as well.

    My macros for a sample day broke down to the following-

    Fat- 77g
    sat- 19g
    poly- 12g
    mono- 39g

    carbs- 97g
    fiber- 10g (need to get that up to around 20?)

    protein- 250g

    As you can see, about half of my cals come from protein, around a third from fat and the rest from carbs.

    And once again, I wish to lose ~1.5lbs a week untill I reach my goal (around 8 weeks).

    Thanks
    -Jon
