    I hate to be all "moral of the story" and **** but uh - two wrongs do not make a right. They make you a typical poor representative of our gender, seeking outside attention to recover from an...

    ITA. Also, don't give up on your oldest daughter. There was a somewhat similar situation in my family while growing up - my dad worked 65+ hours a week, 3rd shift, etc to provide for us and my mom...

    Do you have a coach? I'd recommend getting one, if only for peak week because it's sooo complex.

    Ignore your weight if you're relatively new to weightlifting (ie if you've been lifting for less than, say, 9-12 months). If you are a beginner, you are likely gaining muscle & filling up your...

    THIS! And don't bring your debit/credit card/cash with you so you CAN'T buy crap that's off-plan. I used to do this to force myself to diet. If I knew I needed to run errands or get gas, I'd bring...

    If you struggle with hypoglycemia you should definitely be working with a prep coach who can help you troubleshoot those issues. I'd recommend Michael Keck (Keck Nutrition), Shelby Starnes, or PJ...

    I'd like to see a little more fat - for females I never recommend dropping below 45g of fat/day. Everyone's metabolism is different, so try cutting at this deficit and see what your results are like....

    I think fat-burners are a waste of money...lipo-6, raspberry ketones, etc. They just make you feel jittery & MAY suppress your appetite a little bit - not worth it.

    Strength is all relative. You have to remember that you are strongest in the movements you train. I didn't do any squatting for several months due to a rotator cuff injury (it's heavily involved!!...
