I am competitive powerlifter and have been for about ten years. My recent girlfriend has started to weight train (Ian King style workouts) and run wind sprints. She has cleaned up her diet (no more high sugar binges) and takes supplements and has made great progress. The problem lies in she is wanting to lose a little more fat ( I think she is hot now but…) and I can not get her to try incresing her fat intake by using fish oil or olive oil or flax seed. She has this paragdiagm (thanks to her mother and all those damn women’s "un"health magazines that increasing the consumptation of good fat will make you fat.) She is usually a smart woman and in the past I have been able to show her studies on training, supplementation, and diet and she will embrace a paradiagm shift or at least try it out. With the increase of good fats she can’t overcome the fear and belief that it will make her fat. Does anyone, including the T-Vixens, out there can give me any advice, research article, or story that can help her see the light? She has come so far so quick and it is frustrating for me as a competitive powerlifter to see her not making progress because of years of misinformation
Thanks and Get Strong.
