Is it just me - Every time I read that post heading.....the best way for a girl to lose weight?
My answer is always the same -
BREAK UP WITH YOUR BOYFRIEND.....That should drop about 175 lbs.

You really need to see where you are with your diet. Calculate your BMR and TDEE using these formulas. If you know her bodyfat the Katch-McArdie formula is the way to go, if not the Harris-Benedict formula gives very close answers in my case. You can find some info and the formulas here:
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)

i've been eating good quality foods with lots of protein and low gi carbs every 2.5-3 hours. Also, I've increased my cardio, which I do 5 times a week (with lifting). It's been exactly 1 week and 3 days since I've started this with my Heat/Sesathin stack and I've lost 2 lbs.
Does that sound like a good amount of weight for what I'm doing????

Can I suggest one thing?
GET OFF THE DAMN SCALE!!!!
Do not look at the scale. Once a week, max!!!!
Start judding your results by your appearance in front of a mirror, naked.
A mirror won't lie to you. A scale can and often does.

2lbs in a week is good for any female.
Weight loss takes time no matter what drug or supplement you use. Get used to that fact.
For answers to board issues, read the Suggestion and News forum at the bottom of the main page.

That should be the easiest time to see the changes.Originally Posted by liftin mama
Dropping 2% bodyfat when you're like 20% won't be that noticeable in the mirror. Seeing yourself go from 10% to 8% will be.

If you are looking for some good material on this I would recommend Tom Venuto's 'Burn The Fat Feed The Muscle' (BFFM) e-book. He does a great job of explaining these topics and more in depth.Originally Posted by UNDERTAKER

qualitatively, she is looking a little thinner. I would guess she is around 14-16% bf. Its hard to tell with her cuz she has gained a good deal of muscle in the last six months. 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.

Yes...thanks for that "lovely" description of me! What a sweet boyfriend you are

Ok...I did the math. I should be intaking 2108 to maintain.....
lowering it 500 cals would be sufficient enough to loose weight?

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

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.
06-08-2005, 01:32 PM
If that's the case then yes. Up the calories and expend more calories than she comsumes through weight training and cardio.Originally Posted by UNDERTAKER
Then you can start playing with the calories.
