Thinner Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Female Body (Muscle for Life Book 2)

I'd have a look at your TDEE on this website and the linked book which is a good intro to cutting/maintenance/bulking and macros with a specific focus on women.

Yes, I think 1400kcal is too low to bulk. Had a quick look at your calculated TDEE based on your weight and activity level (you'll be able to calculate it more accurately by using correct BF% and age, height etc...) and I think you'd need to be quite a bit higher.

I'd give the book a read and see what you think. It's cheap enough.

I'm gonna throw out the book Thinner Leaner Stronger because it not only offers some good lifting/workout advice, but some good nutritional advice as well (all backed by science and studies).

> like 10 pounds of frozen chicken breasts which Im going to try ...

> How's salmon? I know it's pretty fatty but its packed with protein too, no? ...

These two quotes make it pretty clear to me what your hang up on weight loss is. You have no idea what you're really eating. (Sorry to put it so bluntly.) Unless you bought an irregular amount of chicken, you got the regular Costco pack for $2.99/lb and which normally weighs about 6 lb. How many servings or grams of protein is that for you? i.e., how far is that going to take you? If you care enough to work out as much as you say you are, you should know how many oz of chicken are a serving and how many grams of protein you need per day. Same for salmon. Otherwise you're just spinning your wheels and trust me, I KNOW how much that sucks. If you were busting ass in the kitchen as hard as you are in the gym, you'd have that chicken cooked and weighed into appropriate sizes already.

My advice:

Everything you need to know about eating to be the hottest, healthiest you. (However, this is not the end-all, be-all resource for exercise, imo. I'd recommend one other book for that if you're interested, although Mike here does go into exercise quite a bit.)

Thinner, Leaner, Stronger and
Girls Gone Strong

These are two I am curious about, both were recommended but I have found little reference to them in the community.

I follow this program:

It's a full YEAR of routines with options to lift 3,4, or 5 days a week (awesome for people who travel for work like i do)

Hi all - Sorry if this is a really stupid question. Searching for a new lifting program (Starting Strength didn't have enough variety to keep me interested). I read about Thinner Leaner Stronger on the sidebar of beginner programs. Does the book actually include the lifting routine...?

Everything I want to tell you is in this book. I lost 16 lbs in my first 8 weeks while gaining strength. I went from 25% bf to 13% bf in 18 months.

I find it easier to work with a limited set of information to begin and then add as needed. That book covers all the basics and it's short and cheap.

Honestly, you just have to be ready personally to put in the work. I recently started working out and I found the book Thinner, Leaner, Stronger and the accompanying workbook The Year One Challenge for Women to be very motivating.

u/albeaner · 2 pointsr/EOOD

This one. I've been in r/xxfitness for a while and was looking for something similar to strong curves but a little simpler.

I just started weightlifting too! It's kind of overwhelming as a female, but luckily it's no longer intimidating- the big guys don't look at me strange when i walk in the weight area and they've been helpful when i ask about machines or form advice :) I did find this book and I also enjoy the author's podcast- check it out, lots of great beginning information! Tons of science and thus far it doesn't seem to be complete bullshit-
Basically this guy says lift heavy, few reps, and eat with common sense. If you want to do cardio, do HIIT for short amounts of time.

u/funny_lyfe · 1 pointr/PurplePillDebate

Buy this book-

I've used the male version with very good results.

Okay so you know that diet is 80% of losing weight. Try intermittent fasting. Keto can also work well. Look at the keto sub Reddit. My friend using intermittent fasting + keto lost 40lbs in 2 months.

Also you sure you aren't in starvation mode? Calculate your tdee eat 3-400 less than it. Plan your meals. If you try to cut too much your body gets really efficient at using calories. So every 4-6 weeks eat at your tdee. Assures your body you aren't stuck in a famine.

If you start venturing out into reddit, you will probably find this book.

It's called "Thinner Leaner Stronger" and it changed my life. It talks about strength-based weight loss and goes into great detail about why you should be lifting more than you think. It also has a bunch of great info about diet and supplements. If anything, pick it up just to learn about general nutrition and exercise. It also has a handy 1 year breakdown of exercises for 3-5 days a week that helps you get into a good rhythm without you having to do the work.

I have figured out that knowledge really is power and once I read that book I felt so much better about the choices I made. I was more confident that the food I was eating and the exercises I was doing were correct. No more guessing! I recommend this book to every beginner trying to lose weight or get in shape.

> Cardio is awesome, but not for weight loss.

Love this and agree. My cardio is stress relief more than anything.

> increase the INTENSITY of your exercise.

This too. I'm glad I'm doing something right. So many women (myself included) fall into that "I don't want to get buff" trap. I read Thinner Leaner Stronger by Michael Matthews which is the woman's version of his Bigger Leaner Stronger for men and it really helped me understand the science better. My biggest obstacle is always time.

And I can totally relate that when I get to a higher lift, I feel so badass!

I'm fortunate not to have a libido mismatch with my spouse who is a marathon runner/triathlete, and my lovers are at varied levels of fitness. I haven't struggled to find partners, but that's likely due to a stunning personality. ;)

Hey buddy: TLS is $8.00on kindle... is that too much for you?

His training program is broken up into 5,4 and 3 day splits. I prefer the 5 day split because 1) the total workout time is shorter 2) I can focus on individual muscle groups (doing multiple groups causes me to short change the latter groups) 3) His 5 day split has more volume for individual muscle groups

You can spend $0 and get a great 6, 5, 4, or 3 day routines. Check out or google 5 day splits. There's lots of free published info.

I like TLS' programming for novices, but he doesn't tell you anything in his book or bonus report (which contains his 1 year of progressive exercises) that you can't learn through internet research. It's helpful because his program does the thinking for you and grows as you do (feeling like shoulders are lagging- well in the very next phase he's thought about that and added more shoulder stuff).
