thanks for the compliment - I've been on a clean bulk this winter, and gained some decent muscle. That pic was taken a few weeks ago after I'd trimmed off a pound or two. I have another 3 - 4 weeks of bulking and then it's time to really cut. I can't wait! Last time I cut, I realized how pathetic my lower body actually was. I think this time will be different
(sorry if I'm hijacking)....
Oh yeah, and one other thing for the GF. I've heard good things about forskolin (main ingredient in Carbolin 19). She might find it helpful, in addition to diet/exercise changes.
Also, I know you said she eats healthy, but I've always eaten healthy, and yet when I wanted to lose a few pounds, I found some ways to cut calories back. Healthy food can still be high in calories. Maybe she could just reduce her olive oil a bit, eat one fewer pieces of fruit, remove the yolk from her eggs, that sort of thing - small changes like that, coupled with exercise, will make a real difference.
When I cut calories from my diet, I hardly noticed at all, because I still ate very flavourful foods and lots of veggies. Just be sure she keeps her protein up so that she can recover from workouts and increase metabolism.
