How much you have to loss? Whats your general goal weight? I say general because once a person get ripped, then it is in how you look and the goal weight may change.

@ Rich.....yes, I need a lot of help! ok....well, how do you find out exactly how much you need to lose? I am 19% body fat, I am 5'9" have VERY muscular legs, wider pelvis, so I dont have a super tiny, narrow waist, and seem to carry most of my weight in my mid section as well as upper thighs, lower back. I weigh 154 right now. my lowest when I did no carbs was 142 and you could see my obliques but still could have lost some stomach fat, which didn't go away, not enough time. I think honestly, I could get down to losing 15 lbs of fat....I have gained some muscle recently, been lifting SUper heavy in my back and biceps, shoulders, can Tell I have gained in the past 4 months....

I see other women who are thinner in legs though (when I did no carbs and got way leaner than I've ever before, most fat went away in my thighs, but still some there of course and most stayed in my mid sectino I'd say...but my legs are muscular and so dont think I have TONS of fat to lose....

so with that being said, do you think I should shoot higher than 15 ppounds? so If it were 15 pounds, that would be around 7 weeks out to cut, but isn't it better to start cutting sooner adn then just maintain.? thank you for your help Rich!

Shoot for 135. If you are doing the diet like I do. When you get down to a 1 month out re-look at things. This will put you tone, tight, defonition but not ripped like a BBer.

Start now. shout for 1.5 - 2 lbs a week. This will bring you in early were you will be able to raise carbs and will still keep loosing weight. It will also help you fill and not have the stringy look, just good and full muscle bellies and FIT. Again not like a BBer but a very fit lady.

Your welcome. Being fittness you have a diffrent package to give the judges.
very your cardio on number of days to keep in the 1.2-2. If you loss 2lbs for the week and it isn't over NO cardio. If you do re-feeds keep the day after gains to no more than 2 lbs. You will drop the 2 by a few days after re-feed.
Weigh first thing in morning after you get up and M/T your blatter, but before any food, water or anything, this will be your true weight being your dry, anything after this there are way to many vereables that will give a false weight.
So your looking at 1.5-2 loss each morning of the re-feed day each week.
For re-feed take macro's to maintnace only not above.

I here that. ^5 ripped. I was 130 the morning of (pre - stage prep meals), last year. This year looking at 140 and just as ripped if not more ripped.

This will still put me in Bantom weight for the US and Open class. W/C and Masters theres no weigh in. So at Ohio I don't need to weigh in.

Gong good, fluctuating between 170-175. Strength is climbing and BW weight is dropping.
