Best way for a girl to loose weight?

Page 2 of 3 First 123 Last
  1. Cool


    update....


    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????


  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    That should be the easiest time to see the changes.

    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.

  7. yes....you're right

  8. "proximity ignorance" nice terminology!

    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.

  10. 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.

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

    exactly, I let her see my "o" face once and a while. Sometime I take her for a ride on the ro"o"llercoaster.

  14. hahha...oh yes, very true

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

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

    http://gaining-mass.com/modules/wfse...p?articleid=62

    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.

  17. sounds good..thanks for the help

  18. 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.

  20. my melabolism is not pretty low...you act like i'm obese.....

    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.

  22. you're right...and for that reason only i've been eating a lot more throughout the day. no more small salads for lunch

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

  24. 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.

  26. This might not be the place to ask this question....but any suggestions on what to add to my HEAT and Sesathin stack?

    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.

  30. she basically does a three day weight training split and 4-5 days of cardio at 45mins a pop.
