    Supplements aren't necessary in the base case so I dropped all of them when I was pregnant. Plus it's only for 10 months and it's not like you'll be making massive gains. The focus should be to...

    You can't lose weight to show muscle if you don't have the muscle to support the look.

    Wow...your whole day looks like one whole meal for me.

    When I'm short on calories I go for the Cherry Garcia. Well, these days 'Americone Dream' has become my favorite B&J's flavor.

    Unless you got a DEXA scan you really don't know what your BF truly is. The issue with impedance measurement devices is that they take the path of least resistance; so for the handheld that's from...

    Everything Kimm has said is spot on.

    I'd like to add...consider dumping your trainer. It sounds like they don't know what they're doing and have you on a generic plan. Really do your research when...
