  1. Helping a GF lose weight, advice?


    I have a girl friend that wants to lose weight. I think she is around 125-135 if that, and 21 y/o.

    Now she told me she just started fasting today and will only drink water, tea, and some detox stuff (assuming the tea)... I told her im not sure the weightloss will last long. IMO, i think logically the body will pack on weight once fed again. She says she wants to clear her body of all the bad food and then start to eat healthy.
    Will this 10 day fasting thing work?

    I told her i would help here get in better shape and lose weight (she doesnt even look that bad) so can you guys help me a lil bit? Im a stranger to weightloss as ive always been trying to gain all my life.

    She doesnt eat meat, only chicken once in a while and fish. I wanted to come up with a meal plan for her once i can figure out her maint. cals.
    She is pretty serious about it.

    So what do you think of her fasting plan and any other advice guys? Id really like to help her along this, i like when females decide to take care of themselves fitness & healthwise.


  2. I'd say try and go with somthing like ON's Any Whey to add to things she eats. My bro's gf did somtihing crazy like this and I talked her into takeing it. She can put in just about anything and its virtually tasteless, you can even bake with it.

    She can add some sugar-free tang w/ the Any Whey, it just makes it thicker....like an orange craemsickle smoothie or somthing.

    Did she give up all food for the 10days?

  3. I did a fast a few weeks back and I can honestly say that I felt really good when I was done. That being said, 10 days is was too long; if she reduced it to about two days and eats organic fruits and vegetables, then she will be good at that point.

    Weight loss is all about cardio and diet. Have her do a food log for about a week to see about how much she eats and do both HIIT cardio and distance cardio.

  4. You have given out too much Reputation in the last 24 hours, try again later

    hahaha, guess im a generous guy!

    thank you both for the responses i will keep this thread going as i talk to her and see how things go. THis is my friend btw not lover lol.

    I told her the same Rodja, someone else told her that no matter how much cardio she does she wont lose and i said its a combo of both. Ill get her signed up for the gym i go to.

    Very good advice to DW, never thought of that for her. I need to get some of that too btw

    Whoever told her that cardio does not impact someone's physique is an idiot; yes, it is better to cross-train, but HIIT cardio reshapes the body very quickly. It especially does a great job of toning the legs, hips, butt, and abs.

  6. Cyclical carb restriction would be more effective than all around fasting. Protein intake should not be restricted, and EFAs are just that - essential. Also, carb restriction should not include Fiber, as that should be a daily staple.

    Grab some psyllium fiber, a good fish oil (or blended "Udo's Oil" type supp), and some quality whey protein, then look into one the many carb cycling diets floating around the net.

    Finally, be sure she is taking in a decent multivitamin geared towards women EVERY day, along with a good antioxidant.

    yea theres been alot of garbage on TV about "Cardio = No weight loss" just weight training and a low cal diet.

    Its workd for people, but the thing is most the people I seen were GIGANTIC when they started and are now just big. They say "I lost 78lbs in 10months on this, I love it" To this is say well pal ur stil 40lbs heavier than you should be, and your beging to pleatue with your weightloss, hrm...weird

    Most people ignore the fact that cardio health is just as important as body composition. I used to neglect cardio, but now that I have integrated it into my training, I sleep better, breathe better, and sex is much better

    Is that because your hand has much more endurance, and doesn't tire out as fast?

  12. Also, if you wanna help the girl out, cook romantic healthy meals for her. Pay attention to good proteins, EFA, fibre and low carbs.
    She will love you and the food.

    Another thing I've found is many women eat way too little and too infrequently. Try to convice her to eat more often, just better choices. Go shopping for healthy food and snacks, it's more fun than it sounds!

  15. thanks alot guys. ill rep you all when im allowed to again, guess i gave out to much. Ill talk with her tommorrow and see how her fasting is doing.

    AHHHHHH that is the most frustrating thing about women when it comes to weight loss!! My GF only weighs 115. She is tiny, certainly doesn't need to lose any more weight but anyway she is determined to lose a few kilos.............it is virtually impossible to get it thorugh to her that she need to eat more small meals throughout the day rather then one meal and a smoothy. At the moment she'l eat a sandwich or have a carrot juice for lunch then nothing for the rest of the day and she thinks she has done herself a huge favour and dinner if she eats it is normally crap like a few slices of pizza, but because she's only had the one other meal she thinks its ok......seriously its like talking to a brick wall.

    Does anyone know any good books/sites for women because she wont listen to me at all unlike the HerbalLife salesman she bought 2lbs of Soy protein from for 50 pounds last week!!

  18. fasting and detoxification is a huge scam.

    Another 1000 'scientific' pages will demonstrate with very convincing evidence otherwise.

    people say organic fruit is worse for u than non organic.

    Chocolate is good. Diet doesnt affect acne. Diet does affect acne. Benozly peroxide is good for pimples. Salycilic acid is better.

    There is always conflicting views. What do you believe? Whatever works for you. If a detox helps your health then do it, if it doesnt then dont do it again.

  20. IM experience, bedroom cardio has been the best weight loss alternative for GF's, but I guess if she's not THAT sort of GF, other methods may be called for. Just going for a 3-4 mile walk every night would help TONS. If she's too winded / exhausted to do a 3-4 mile walk (~1 hour) then she's so carb starved that she's going hypo.

    thanks for the help. We are going running/walking tommarrow, i guess the 10day fast thing isnt working to well. She said that she could fit in her old jeans but as of yesterday cant again. I told her to join the gym but she says she has to much bills and asked me to pay for it, yeah RIGHT! lol. She said how much running do i need to do to lose these pounds, i said some good sex would do the job hint hint. Id bang her just for the cardio! lol. Maybe i shouldnt have said that because i was going to tell her about this site and this thread so she could log on and read everyone's advice/comments...

    Well in 'lieue' of the whole site thing you could buy her:

    The Great American Sex Diet: Where the Only Thing You Nibble On... Is Your Partner!

    ISBN-10: 0066212782
    ISBN-13: 978-0066212784

    Lol. It actually worked for one of my previous GF's, ahem.

  23. thats a great idea. I'll have to try going for more than 5 min. next time.

  24. and it burns 15 calories to open my wallet and leave $40 on the nightstand.
