Not a coincidence, and not solely the result of a lack of calcium. I wonder if there are 700 calories in Gwyneth's entire body. Well, maybe if you ate her bone marrow, which apparently would be easy to get at.
Seriously. It infuriates me. Tracy Anderson is a misogynist as far as I can tell.

Do they actually train?

If they are: 1)Male and 2)Train, then they are either 1)Following really crappy programming or 2)Genetic freaks who can't actually squat more than I do.

I would say that being a genetic freak who can't actually squat more than I do is probably pretty rare.

Tamara,

How much do you squat ?

I gotta know if I've made the cut.

My last 1RM was in December. 220. So, we can even pretend that I couldn't hit more than that today and just use 220.

220 for one is hardly strong for a girl. Any GUY can run novice linear progression for a few WEEKS and hit that.

Re: You must eat this much to play

I may not get the joke and I am VERY new to xfit, but I am working to try and lose weight and change my body composition. I am 5'6"/177. I am transitioning between buttercup and pack.

I want to drop to 165 and am consuming about 1600/day. Yes, if I keep packing on muscle, I will eventually be able to eat more but am I right to think that 1600/day plus daily workout is both effective at fitness and healthy?

Sigh. Eat more.

People like you are the reason this thread exists. If you are crossfitting, this is far too severe a deficit. Punch that up to more like 2000-2300 cal a day, gain muscle, and your bf% will go down. Or just eat clean as much as you want, and it will all work itself out.

Re: You must eat this much to play

Whew, I made the cut.

Note the article's author came to this common sense conclusion -

When I started the Tracy Anderson Method I was a massive fan and I wanted to tell everyone that I had found the holy grail of dieting. But now I see how wrong I was.

I briefly scanned the comments on that website, they were all negative toward the Tracy Anderson diet.

Note the author also said -

I went on the forum to voice concerns about the wisdom of the diet and was told sternly to 'trust in Tracy Anderson' and 'believe in The Method'.
I noticed my comments were later removed.


Obviously Kool Aid is an essential component of the diet.

220 is plenty for a girl, especially if it's atg and you're a little girl.
