Re: You must eat this much to play

1600 calories a day? That's just dinner for me...

I seriously think I would get dizzy/light-headed/pass out from lack of nourishment at only 1600 calories a day at my level of activity...

...and I'm one of those super skinny d00dz that gets made fun of all the time on this board.

Fortunately I also squat more than Tamara.

I guess my confusion is now whether or not I am a reasonable human being at 5'10" 155lbs which is WAY too skinny (BUT I HAZ ABZ!) but also squatting 3x5's of 285# (should hit 315# in April if linear progression continues. I've yet to hit a point where I think it would slow down anytime soon...)

Re: You must eat this much to play

Daniel,

I noticed on that Wiki page -

Red bracelets are popularly worn in pro-ana, both as a discreet way for anorexics to socially identify and as a tangible reminder to avoid eating.

Go back to the original link and check out Gwyneth Paltrow's bikini picture.

It angries up the blood that this "Health and Fitness" professional has reached such levels of fame with this garbage...

Re: You must eat this much to play

Seriously women that small like Gwyneth or probably at a risk of breaking a limb during "Partner Calesthenics." No, we have to take it easy or I might break something. WTF.

I wonder what it's like with an Amazon. Strongest girl I ever dated could do 155 who was a FF trainee which was cool since at least I didn't have take off the 45s when we worked out together.

I only want to lean out a bit because it means its easier moving my fat *** up and around on the rings, pipe, and pbars. **** pommel. It's also much nicer when tumbling and vaulting.

Well, I weigh between 150 and 155 depending on the day. And, I define "plenty" as enough to get me a masters national record. So, I have a lot of work to do on my squat.

My 220 squat in December was low bar. And, while I get good depth on my squats, Renee can verify that I am hardly flexible for a weightlifter. I am like anti-flexible. My PT and coach would agree.

The distinction that is made is that there are many who train and diet for abs, but couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper bag without stopping to rest twice. Crossfitters and the like train to be fast, strong, and have endurance. We train to be functionally fit.
Your food intake is low, and eventually (sooner, not later) your training will suffer. Eat to support your activity level. Eat clean. Your body comp will take care of itself.

Chris, it appears she's targeting a very specific demographic.
