I have posted a few similar topics before concerning this subject, but i have seem to have reached a brick wall in terms of what to do.
I have been trying to help my girlfriend lose weight for the past few months. She is 135lbs 4’11" and 30%bf. Her goal is weight loss, some muscle gain would be nice, but fat loss is the main objective here, and if some muscle gets lost to its ok.
I had her on the T-dawg Diet for the months of Janruary and February. After those two months she had not lost much weight four or five pounds at the most. We decided to take a break for the time being and reevaluate what we were doing. She had her thyroid tested, but everything looks normal. She was keeping a good food log while on the T-dawg, and on paper everything looked right. She was lifting three times a week and doing cardio.
I am kind of at a loss for what to do right now. One thing i was thinking is that perhaps her body needs more of a jump start to get fat loss going. The T-Dawg seems to be a diet for someone who wants to shed a small amount of fat while keep as much muscle as possible. That could be a good option down the road, but right now a large of amount of fat loss is the key.
Can anyone help me out with some parameters for a more effective fat loss program? I have been reading T-mag for a while, and thought i knew a fair amount about this kind of stuff. But putting into practice on someone else has been suprisingly tough.
