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?

    Calcium supplementation

    First, I am lactose intollerant so I eat/drink low amounts of dairy products. Therefore I don't get a good amount of calcium in my diet.

    I went to the store looking at calcium pills to supplement a multi vitamin. What kind of calcium should I take? There were a few different kinds and I was not sure which to pick? Is one better than the other?

    Thanks.
    Steve

    just choose the regular one with calcium carbonate ... it absorbs poorly , but take it more than recommended if you think you need it, maybe 2 grams a day

    Why would I want something that is abosrbed poorly? Isn't that just wasting the calcium?

    I used to drink soy milk, but I don't really like it. I'd rather just drink water.

    Getfit is really pushing the lactose-free milk.

    Could anybody answer the question of which type of calcium to take for me?

    I can't stand the taste and texture of milk and soy milk. The only type of dairy product I like is ice cream (which I avoid for calorie reasons) and I'm trying my hardest to fit yogurt into my life, but it isn't going so well.
    To clear up some confusion:
    Blanche = slut on the Golden Girls
    Soprano = The Sopranos
    And no, my life does not revolve around the tv.
