Yeah, a bit. Pick up strength training. This book is a great tool to help you lose the ‘skinny fat’ look.

If you want a great straight forward summary of fitness and physique building I highly recommend the book Thinner, Leaner, Stronger by Michael Matthews. It’s easy to read and gives you a great starting knowledge for figuring out how to actually achieve your fitness goals and navigate the fitness world in general. I found it really helpful in becoming more comfortable and confident in the gym and my fitness journey. Good luck! If you stick to it you will find amazing sides of yourself you didn’t realize were there 🙂

A book that is a good intro to weight training for women is a book called Thinner Leaner Stronger. It explains a decent program that you can do in less than 1 hour, explains the nutrition and everything else you need. It falls a bit short in explaining the exercises themselves in detail but YouTube is much better for that anyway.

Happy to help 🙂

I think there is FAR too much division between male and female strategies. 95% of the time, the same rules apply. With reverse dieting, it absolutely applies. The longer you diet, the longer you have to reverse. So I hate to say it but with dieting for 16 months, it could easily take that long to get your calories back up without gaining weight. For many people, this means only adding in 20-40 calories per day each week. It is definitely a long process.

I’m very glad to hear that you aren’t going to go back on a crazy diet just to drop weight for the wedding. That would be one of the worst things to do at this point. If you’re enjoying your workouts and your quality of life is improving, that is FAR more important.

I would recommend Mike Matthews as another resource. Like Layne, he is very scientifically-minded. Here’s his female-targeted book:

I haven’t read that one, but I’ve read his book for men, Bigger, Leaner, Stronger, and it is a great resource, so I would check that out. Here is his website too, lots of good articles.

By the way, I totally can relate on the calculators that give a TDEE and your like, ummm I wish! Stings a bit, I know. But, if you are patient then it will come back!

Not a post or a free article, but if you can’t find one getting her this book would probably do the trick:
