This may come as a shock. I had just logged off my hotmail account and saw something about how to get that 6pack and thought it'd be interesting to read what it said. . .

Hello! 2 sentences about nutrition :shutit: For all to see, don't worry so much about your diet, and cut back on the weight lifting, instead swtich the 7 hours of weights for 7 extra hours of cardio.

I wouldn't usually put something bitchy like this up, but I can't close my mouth or stop shaking my head.

Wow! Some "expert", huh? :wacko: This is some seriously f'd up advice. I hope the poor lady seeks some other opinions!

I went on the weight loss message board after reading that article.
I shouldn't have.
There's a dude on there advising people to do 1.5 hours of cardio (I'm assuming per day) to lose weight. :dry:
What an idiot. :sad:

Someone just posted on there that she is eating 700-1000 calories a day and can't lose weight. There aren't any replies yet, but it will be interesting to see what they say.

I have a friend who works out like crazy but can't lose weight. I keep telling her to look at her diet and add some weight training. She can't break that thinking that you must do 8,000 hours of cardio a week. :D

That weight_lifter dude is a complete and utter idiot. He recommends doing hours of cardio and tells people to go buy a BMR testing machine on ebay to figure out their calorie totals for the day. I wonder if he is selling them and this is his round about way of making money. :blink:

The current recommendation for weightloss is 90 minutes of aerobic activity every day, per the ADA.

Seems crazy :wacko:

... my friends "trainer" has her doing 14 miles of running/DAY when she is getting ready for a bb competition :blink: . I told her..."find a new trainer - FAST". Lots of seriously bad information out there :sad:

We didn't even average that much in cross country practise, and I still got stress fractures...:eek:
