    Hopefully you aren't paying this person. If all they gave you was a cookie cutter diet I'd drop them.

    Doesn't look like much food. How many calories is that and what's the macros?

    Depending on how much milk you produce will determine how much more you need to eat. It's about 20 calories per ounce...

    Yes it has!

    I never really considered myself a bodybuilder until I watched the original Pumping Iron and realized that today's figure girls are bigger than what a 1960's women bodybuilder used to...

    Since you aren't tracking what you eat it is highly probable that you are dropping your calories too low.

    There will be hunger when you diet and you just have to accept that, we call it "embracing...

    I honestly would have preferred to see an isocaloric study done on this. The HP group gained 2 or so odd pounds indicating that they were indeed eating in a surplus yet the LP group actually lost...

    Not too surprising since we are talking a difference between 0.5 g/lb versus 1 gram protein per pound of bodyweight. So further supports that the RDA for protein, even for women, is too low for...

    I think a lot are seeking validation that what they are doing is ok. That the people IRL that express their concerns don't understand their "passion for fitness".

    We all start somewhere. Just focus on adding more to the bar or increasing reps week on week and you'll eventually get your numbers up.

    Because you wouldn' have become emaciated nor continue to drop weight if you were eating that much. Just eat more, even if you are adding up to 1900 because that is obviously not enough to achieve...

    OP, sorry but at 42kg (92 pounds) you are most definitely not eating 1900 calories especially if you are lifting 1.5 hours five days a week and doing as much cardio as you are. And being hungry is...
