View Full Version : calories on ckd

02-20-2004, 07:50 AM
for a female trying to drop bodyfat

currently 5`3" @140-150lbs probably around 35%bf

she is currently on a balanced diet 1200cals per day and around 100gs of protein, mostly low gi carbs, good fats etc

training is 2 heavy weight sessions per wk, mostly compound exercises, squats deads etc

2 bodypump sessions per week and 2 step classes

with probably another 2 hrs total mixed cardio stuff-spinning, cross trainer

would going to a ckd diet help and if so should she stick to 1200 cals per day, but swap fat for carps on the weekend.

Current routine/diet is going quite well with 4" lost from waist in 4 weeks

If the current routine is going well I see no reason to change it, although that seems a pretty extreme deficit considering the level of activity and the rate of weight loss. At that level of BF i would say any reasonable diet plan with a calorie deficit should work, save the ckd for when things get tough at lower percentages.

I agree about the extreme deficit, her idea not mine ;)
