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?

    My friend was telling me the other day that he was reading and came across something interesting. It said that after a workout, muscle fibers can be torn, etc. It said that eating a lot of peanut butter (while it may not be completely beneficial to your health) was excellent for replacing muscle fibers in your muscles.

    So, I guess what I'm wondering is: is this a myth, or is it real? Let me know!

    Ok, you sparked my interest...I wanna hear his reasoning behind his theory.

    Although not of the best source, 100g of Peanut butter contains about 25g of protein, hence it participates in the muscle building process. But this is definitely not the way to go; PB is 1st and foremost a source of healthy fats (EFAs).

    Myth.


    You cannot replace muscle fibers. Maybe he said "repair" your muscles. Taking in a steady supply of high quality protein and calories will help you to repair the damage that workouts do to your body. Vitamins and minerals help too.

    Yes, I'm sorry, I misstated that in my post. This is what was said. I know that once muscle fibers are gone, they are gone for good. That is why after one rips a muscle (or a muscle fiber, was it?), they are unable to stretch it anymore.

    Thanks for clearing this up!

    Me too.

    If you look at it like this I guess it is true :-

    Protein Repairs muscle .... Peanut butter contains Protein.

    But, peanut butter contains incomplete proteins. Now the question is, will incomplete proteins help repair muscles???

    Yes, but not as much as complete. You could have two incomplete protein sources instead of ONE complete source.

    Yes, Dan Valentine "Professional Pornstar" is right. You can mix two incomplete sources to make a complete source. You need to mix two foods that will make a complete profile. I do believe an example is rice and beans is it not?.....
