We have been trying for months to help my sister to lose weight and she is an absolute devoted trainer and does a great job with nutrition but alas she just isn't losing weight and it is really affecting her and it's breaking my heart. We have tried the following work out routines.
3 Days a week 5X5 2 compound movements per session. Pull ups, Bench, Deadlift, Squats, Overhead Press and Dips. Off days we did sprints and and she walked every morning fasted with caffeine.
Standard Bodybuilding. 3 exercises per body part 3-4 sets of low rep, medium rep, high rep.
CURRENT Complexes 3x per week followed by 20 minutes of cardio.
Her current diet is 135g grams of protein with low carb and moderate fat. Her breakfast She eats 8oz of chicken for lunch with a handful of almonds and 8 oz chicken dinner with vegetables on non workout days and with beans and rice on workout days. We're down to about 1200 calories on workout days and 1000 on non workout days.
I am honestly running out of moves here. The last thing I am planning is to put her on the V-Diet if I can't figure this out, but I can't understand why this isn't working. I've increased calories and reduced calories used sprints and weight training and done several different sure fire methods. I lost 50lbs doing this stuff and have never had the struggles she has in my body manipulations. I am worried something is really out of whack and we might need to consult a doctor.
Am I missing something? Compound movements, complexes, sprints, low carb, proper protein. Could it just be stress?
