what would you recommend for women on the monolith program per the 1.5lbs of beef and 12 eggs?
I could see 2/3 or 3/4 of the eating volume being sensible (to account for generally smaller frames, higher tendency of fat storage compared to men, etc.).
However, I can also see the value of women learning not to be scared of higher volumes of the right kinds of foods and eating to be awesome. Part of why we have a higher body fat is the the smaller amount of muscle, and gotta eat to change that, right?
At any rate, I'm very much considering using this program when I finish up my current training and curious as to what experience you have with females and this plan. The lifting looks challenging (as it damn well should be), but it also seems pretty clear that if the nutrition part isn't right, I'd just be tearing myself down, or at the very least missing out on optimal gains.
Side note #1. I'm already a big believer in 5/3/1 results and have been steadily training that way for almost 4 years. I don't need to be convinced of the awesomeness of the plan--only wanting to get the nutrition part right before I start planning my next grocery and supplement budget!
Side note #2. I enjoy beef and eggs, so this is purely a volume question, not an aversion to red meat or bogus cholesterol concern.
