Because women gain muscle at a slower rate than men does that mean they need to eat less calories over their maintenance. I am very interested in female weightlifting because my girlfriend wants to start something up to supplement her capoeira training.

Most people I know like to think of it as a percentage above maintenance than a set number. Women have all kinds of major differences that make it more difficult to gain mass. That said, they can gain strength without gaining mass...just like men can. Does she want to get bigger or stronger?
