Re: Tips To Reduce 1lb. p/wk of Body Fat

Everything already said has been spot on. I would just add a few things:

Lifting weights is a must. Even if you lose weight slowly and healthfully, you will still be losing some muscle. Counteract it by working out with weights/weight machines. Muscles are also your calorie burning engine. The more muscle you have, the more calories your body burns even laying in front of the tv. And on top of it, it gives you a better shape. Women aren't designed to be muscular, so they don't really have to worry too much about getting bulky muscles from weight lifting, if that's a concern.

Focus on protein, from lean meats, etc. Keep fat low, avoid saturated fats as much as possible, but get some good fats, from olive oil, flax seed oil, peanut butter, etc., and eat some good carbs, from veggies, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, whole wheat breads, some grains. Some nuts. I also live on a lot of added whey protein shakes, but that's just me. I need extra protein for what I do.

Eat 6 small meals per day, spread apart about 3-4 hours. Roughly 300-400 calories per meal depending on 2na's formula for your base caloric intake.


And the good old fashioned sets of push-ups, done a few times a day will do wonders. Way more than most people think.

Cheat meals. 1 meal a week (not 1 whole day a week, although that has worked for me as well), eat as much of, and whatever you want. Crispy Cream donuts, Taco Bell. A whole bucket of KFC, whatever. Your body gets adjusted to the lower calories, and the cheat meal tricks it. You'll evennotice after eating it, the next day your scale will probably show that you're lighter. Try it. ;)

Persistence. Just do the work and consider it done. Be patient. As long as you do it, the results will come. Some days the scale just won't move, don't worry about it, that's normal. Just keep at it.

I'm smiling. That alone should scare you. :)

Something for lazy bodybuilders

Guys if you are lazy or don't have any progress in bodybuilding you should search in google for:
