The part about going out to eat is right on, my wife always tries to order some full size entree, unfortunately she shouldnt be eating with the big boys unless she wants to weigh as much as one.
I emailed it to my wife, probably will piss her off, then again we have been married 3 years, what doesnt?

Incredibly patronising, but lots of good information. The tone of voice in the "order your woman a smaller plate of food" section is quite amusing. All good advice though.
Just a minor point, but there's a spelling mistake there too:
"First, when at restaurants, ask if theyíll accommodate small potion sizes." I'm guessing its meant to be portion, unless eye-of-newt and virgin's blood is some new secret to weight-loss.
where have you been its the latest thing
that girls has terrible form on several exercises. i would think john berardi would focus on quality over quantity. i understand the idea behind the exercises is to get the heart rate up, but if performed incorrectly, injury can and will happen.
good guidelines. should be followed by both men and women.
I'm getting my girlfriend into the whole weightlifting/eating better thing.
It gets kind of annoying when she asks me what I've eaten all day (which is usually peanut butter sandwiches, tuna, protein shakes, fruit, and vegetables), and then she gets mad because she thinks she's eating worse (which she is).
