    Yep. Anything you eat in excess of what your body needs to build a pound of muscle will be stored as fat. Considering women are limited to around 1/2 lb of muscle gain per month, no point in eating...

    Um, if she's a female, gaining 10 lbs of LBM is going to take more like 1-2 yrs. Maybe one lb per month for the first few months (3-6 tops), then half a pound or less after that.

    Where/how did you come up with this routine?

    I would pretty much throw out this routine completely.
    You need to be on a program devised by a pro. And not 'Muscle and Fitness' or other such...

    Yeah, 1g of protein per lb of body weight, give or take a little. I think in a deficit it's super critical to get enough, and at maintenance or above a little less so.

    I'm sorry :-( I haven't had to deal with chronic hunger since I was a kid. We were super poor and I didn't have much energy most of the time. I hope your situation improves soon!

    Hmm. I do them with legs because that's where I *feel* them. Although I do bend my knees some, I still feel most of the tension in my hamstrings. So, IDK. Put it where you feel it the most?

    I think working out in a diet that is chronically deficient is sort of pointless. You need adequate calories/protein/nutrition in general to make the most of your workouts.

    You don't need any supplements. Eat around maintenance, get adequate protein (120g) and lift a solid beginner's program, such as Starting Strength.

    Not illegal ins all of US. It's legal in Washington, but illegal in Oregon where I live. I often travel to BC, Canada so I pick it up cheap there, or pay about double in Washington.
