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?

    Sanity check here on my maint cals / cutting cals

    Okay, so let me first start by saying, I think all the maint calorie calculators and bmr calculators out there seem to be way off when it comes to Questor.

    I'm a 29 yr old, 156 lb, 5'7" man with a slight frame. I've seen maint cal calculators suggest up to 3500 calories for me.

    Dunno, but I have for the last four months kept a daily journal of my calorie consumption, macros, weight, and exercises in a nice little excel spreadsheet at home.

    I started out coming off a stupid low calorie diet, and slowly increased my calories.

    At 2500-2700 I seemed to fluctuate in weight. At 2800-2850 I became stable and more or less maintained. Right now I"m at about 3050 and gaining approximately 1.5 lb / week steadily.

    I plan on keeping up 3000-3300 until March, when I plan on cutting just a bit. Like, for 6-8 weeks.

    If I'm not way off on my feelings of what my maint cals are, then I'll probably throttle back my calories to 2500-2600 for the cut, and most of the removed calories will be from carbs.

    I plan on low gi carbs, lean proteins, and approx. 25% of my cals coming from fats in a 33/66 sat/unsat balance.

    Input? Feedback?
