Her main problem is that the fat she does have is not evenly dispersed. It is focused mostly under her butt. I cant wait til she reads this one.

    Ok...I did the math. I should be intaking 2108 to maintain.....

    lowering it 500 cals would be sufficient enough to loose weight?

    Then calculate her caloric intake using something like fit day. I use and really like champion nutrion. It was posted on here but if you can't find it I will put it up.

    Then you can make adjustments...and as those guys were saying, -500cals off of your TDEE for fat loss (really up to 500 off, anywhere sub TDEE will provide fat loss)

    Absolutely. You don't want to go too far sub-maintence for lots of reasons, and - 500 is a good trade off.

    Well her metabolism is pretty low. I dont think eatting less is the answer. She eats a clean diet. I have a feeling she should actually up her cals to get her metabolism up to par.

    If that's the case then yes. Up the calories and expend more calories than she comsumes through weight training and cardio.

    Then you can start playing with the calories.

    One doesn't have to be obese to have a slow metabolism.

    I know plenty of guys who eat one meal a day that are not obese. I know without a doubt they have a slow metabolism given the fact they eat one meal a day and don't ever seem to get hungry.

    This is a sign of a slow metabolism.

    This is exactly what I have been trying to get through her thick skull. More food and more cardio.

    Yeah, it seems for women cardio is very important to getting lean, whereas with guys it doesn't really matter THAT much. May I suggest something a bit more fun than another hour on a stepper machine though? Try boxing or kickboxing

    Granted, sub maintenence and cardio is really the best way to go.

    To keep the metabolism higher you don't neccessarily have to eat more, just more often.

    What's your training like including cardio?

    Any when yuo say no results... what do you mean? No weight loss (scale)?

    I suggest getting Undertaker to take some pictures of you (and post them for us.. kidding). That way you can more easily measure progress visually as it's hard to SEE changes happening without a documented visual record of it.

    I recently asked Loki about my wife and what he would suggest (out of Avants products obviously) and he suggested sesathin and Lipoderm - ULTRA which according to him works very well on females especially in the trouble areas (hips, thighs, butt).

    My wife is currently using Sesathin and keeping her calories about 500 below maintenence while doing cardio and is losing fat nicely. She is not overweight at all she is actually quite skinny, she just has some fat deposits that bug her and wants to get rid of.

    Perhaps you could add the lipoderm but I really don't think its neccessary, just keep the calories sub-maintenence and keeping doing cardio at least 4 or 5 times a week and give it a little time and the results will come, just stick with it.

    If after a few more weeks, she's not seeing the results.

    Hit up a 5 day training split with cardio for 4-5 days as well.

    Hmm. Didn't see this til now:

    This is my training split

    Monday: Chest
    Tuesday: off
    Wednesday:Bi/Tri
    Thursday: Off
    Friday: Back
    Saturday: Delts/traps
    Sunday: Legs

    You can substitute the "off" days for "cardio only days" which for me would consist of cardio/abs/calves.

    I do 30-45 mins of cardio after each training session with very low intensity, 3.5 on the readmill at 2.5 incline. No cardio after a leg day.

    Effect of Berberine Administration on Metabolic Syndrome, Insulin Sensitivity, and Insulin Secretion.

    Metab Syndr Relat Disord. 2013 Jun 28;

    Authors: P?rez-Rubio KG, Gonz?lez-Ortiz M, Mart?nez-Abundis E, Robles-Cervantes JA, Espinel-Berm?dez MC

    Abstract
    Abstract Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of berberine administration on metabolic syndrome, insulin sensitivity, and insulin secretion. Methods: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial was carried out in 24 patients with a diagnosis of metabolic syndrome. Glucose and insulin levels after a dextrose load were measured. Triglycerides and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations at baseline were also measured. Twelve patients received berberine hydrochloride (500 mg) three times daily before meals for 3 months. The remaining 12 patients received placebo. Area under the curve (AUC) of glucose and insulin, total insulin secretion, first-phase of insulin secretion, and insulin sensitivity were assessed. Results: After berberine administration, patients had a remission of 36% (P=0.037) in the presence of metabolic syndrome and a significant decrease in waist circumference in females (106?4 vs. 103?3 cm, P<0.05), systolic blood pressure (SBP) (123?7 vs. 115?9 mmHg, P<0.01), triglycerides (2.4?0.7 vs. 1.4?0.5 mmol/L, P<0.01), area under the curve (AUC) of glucose (1182.1?253.6 vs. 1069.5?172.4 mmol/l, P<0.05), AUC of insulin (92,056?72,148 vs. 67,407?46,441 pmol/L, P<0.01), and insulinogenic index (0.78?0.69 vs. 0.62?0.46, P<0.05), as well as an increase in the Matsuda index (2.1?1.0 vs. 3.1?1.6, P<0.01). Conclusions: Administration of berberine leads to remission of metabolic syndrome and decreases in waist circumference, SBP, triglycerides, and total insulin secretion, with an increase in insulin sensitivity.

    Please help me out....

    I'm looking to loose 10-15 lbs.
    Intermittent fasting and strength training. Cardio doesn't help as much as you may think.
