    Lose Weight?

    Nah, who wants to do that? Well, NOT me that's for sure! Why not you ask. Well, first of all, the mentality is wrong. If anything, the goal should be "fat loss" not "weight loss." Muscle weighs more than fat, pure and simple. I want more muscle and could care less what numbers the scale displays as long as my body fat percentage is lower.  Too many women these days still have that mindset of going on fad diets to lose weight, when really, all that needs to be done are a few simple lifestyle changes to change the muscle to fat ratio and the results are longer lasting. So moving forward, Ladies, we will talk fat loss and the things we can do to increase it!

    I totally agree!! Women ask me all the time for advice on how to start and where to start and the first thing I say is THROW OUT THE SCALE!! Start slow with small changes like if you drink sodas all day long; lower your self to one or two per day for two weeks, after that one every other day. So on and so forth until it's a cheat meal drink. You're able to stay committed to something when it's not a drastic change. Start going to the gym twice per week, for 30mins for 1 month. Then 3 times per week for 45mins for a month. So on and so forth until you fall in love with all the progress you're making and become a gym rat like the rest of us!! I can't comment on diet because I'm a fat ass who lives in a bodybuilders body.

      The scale is for fat people. Fit people use the mirror.

          I still have a scale....*sigh*  Hard to get the fat girl to stop......when we weigh 335 pounds you have certain mentality that stays with you.  I'm getting better.  I only weigh once a week rather than everyday......

                      Getting calories mostly from lean protein, whole grains, and fruits and vegetables may help you lose weight safely. No diet for an adult woman should be less than 800 calories per day. If you decide to limit the number of calories you get each day to lose weight, talk to your doctor or nurse first.

                        The food you need for bodybuilding isn't fundamentally different from the food you need to live; you just need more of it and different proportions of it. You need protein to manufacture the proteins your body will use to build your muscles. You need carbohydrates to manufacture glycogen and to have the energy necessary to lift weights. You need fats to maintain your healthy hormone balances. You need fiber and micronutrients to satisfy the general needs of your body and avoid illness.

                        Broccoli is a poor source of fat and carbohydrates, a mediocre source of protein, an excellent source of fiber and vitamin C, and a mediocre source of Vitamins A, B-6, and magnesium. Eating broccoli, on its own, will not be enough to meet your body's needs, but it fills a niche that a lot of other foods don't. Eat it as a part of a balanced diet and you'll be doing great.
