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?

    Grams Don't Match on Fitday?

    When I put in 140g of chicken breast it gives me a breakdown of 258 cals, 10.4g of fat, 0.0g carbs, and 38.3g protein. Where did the other 90g or so go?

    10.4 x 9 = 93.6 Calories
    38.3 x 4 = 153.2 Calories

    93.6 + 153.2 = 246.8 Calories

    The calories don't even add up.

    Fitday also rounds the numbers so expect a little inaccuracy from that

    I enter in all my own custom foods. FitDay is usually a little bit off sometimes. It can be either really close or quite a bit far off.
