The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    My best friend needs some help

    Well I would hav tried to help her but I have no clue how to approach womens nutrition and training. I wasn't sure weather to give her the same principles as for guys.

    She is 5'3" or 4"

    and Weighs 60 kilograms which is around 120 pounds I guess.

    Her goal is to lose fat basically.

    She eats around 6 meals a day and runs ever afternoon. Most of those meals are salads and bland things like that. She overtrains aswell.

    N e help would be greatly appreciated as she is really down about being 'fat'

    "pain is weakness leaving the body"

    i would use the same principles as a male, maybe eat a little less...

    more frequent meals, protein with each meal and set at about 1g/lb.

    I'd have her track her diet (Excel spreadsheet or as well. How big are those salads? Dressing? What I have noticed is that vegetables aren't very calorically dense. Thus, she may be eating to few calories.

    And maybe have her alternate between weight lifting and cardio days.
