    Co-Worker needing some info


    I have a girl i work with that wants to lose about 10-20lbs. She is 5ft and 133lbs. She says she eats about 2000 calories per day, of which are approximatly 59g fat, 300g carbs, 70g protein. Anyone have a diet that has worked for a woman of about similar size?

    agreed protein is thermogenic and she shoudln't need the glycogen restoration of a man. I woudl say 150 carbs a day and overcourse complex

    Carbs too high, calories too high, protein not high enough, fat too high.

    Lean sources of protein, clean fats, and complex carbs with a cut off time of about 7pm. Also tell her to add resistance training besides the cardio.

    Cool, thanks alot guys. Everyone here at work always asks me nutrition/training questions because I went from 158lbs to 210lbs in a little over a year, however, I really hate giving advice to people that basically isnt my body...I like to just use mine as the guinea pig and I've never dieted once so I didnt want to give her wrong information...I really appriciate it.
