I have a sister on synthroid that the doctor prescribed her awhile back for her thyroid problem.
She sleeps alot and put on alot of weight. She went from slim to thick (not really obese or anything serious like that).
She goes to the gym and is changing her diet to get results. She has worked with a trainer (not saying much though, lol).
She is still getting used to it since she used to be able to eat anything and never even think of working out and would stay slim.
I myself, am pretty experienced with workout programs and diets...for men. I also know alot about ectomorph training and diet since I am one, and she is now more endomorph.
I can get her training down and work with her when I have time but I need some diet help for her.
She needs about 1500 calories a day according to her trainer. I say that is about right. What about ratios? Do women need 1 gram of protein per lb? what about carbs and fat? I would assume its similar to men but I could be wrong.
She does the workouts, but she wants me to stay on her at home so she sticks to her diet. I know I can't make her, and I told her this, but I can work on her diet when I get a baseline set for her.
Any help appreciated.
BTW, I chose to do this since I would like to get into personal training for a living in the future and I know not everyone is like me.
