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 cutting diet plan

    I realize this is probably terrible and I am just looking for any feedback. This is my first try at a diet plan. I am 205 lbs and I'd guess anywhere from 14-20% BF.

    My diet plan is 28% fat, 26% carbs, 46% protein at 2099 calories per day. I believe my maintence level is about 3000.

    Total

    Calories- 2099
    Fat- 62g
    Carbs- 155g
    Protein- 233g


    And without any further ado:

    7AM Breakfast
    4 Eggs
    Oatmeal
    3 oz Carrot


    Calories- 420
    Fat- 22g
    Carb- 32g
    Protein- 29g


    10AM Brunch
    Whey Protein
    Milk
    Olive Oil


    Calories- 311
    Fat- 16g
    Carb- 15g
    Protein- 30g



    1PM Lunch
    6 oz tuna
    3 pkt mustard
    2 tbs Relish
    1 tbs Peanut Butter
    3 oz carrots
    1 cucumber
    Whey Protein
    Milk


    Calories- 556
    Fat- 12g
    Carb- 43g
    Protein- 70g



    4PM Pre-Workout
    6 oz tuna
    3 pkt mustard
    2 tbs Relish
    1 tbs PB
    Whey Protein
    Milk

    Calories- 483
    Fat- 11g
    Carb- 27g
    Protein- 67g



    7PM Post-Workout
    6 oz tuna
    3 pkt mustard
    2 tbs Relish
    Oatmeal
    3 oz carrots


    Calories- 332
    Fat- 5g
    Carb- 37g
    Protein- 39g



    I'm already going to be subbing in chicken or a different type of meat for one of the tuna meals. And the non-fat milk and whey will be blended together. Other than that, how does this look?

    A day? Umm, no. Maybe 200 calories per WEEK but not a day.

    Dropping cals from 2,000 to 1,800 a day would be bad? I'm not disagreeing, I just didn't know that.

    Yea 200-500 cals a day is ridiculous. The OP is over 200lbs with a maintenance of about 3000 calories, he's already in a 1k/day deficit dropping 200-500 a day would have him at next to nothing after a few days. This is a marathon not a race. Once people understand that they will be much happier with their results.

    Ahhh, good to know. I just thought it would be like the opposite of bulking. Instead of adding 200, subtract 200.

    But you're taking this guy as a normal person right? Not a hard core body builder like you?

    I'm just a normal person. He should not be in more then a 1k/day deficit, even that is a bit extreme right off the bat.
