I generally agree with this, but I think Tracy Anderson is far more insidious. She actively encouraging women to be anorexic and is literally making them sick. If all she was marketing was her lame work out plans I wouldn't care. Trying to give your clients eating disorders is nothing short of insane.

The "A" word appears to be the goal of many of her followers.

That's what I meant by "very specific demographic"

Re: You must eat this much to play

I must admit that at one point in my life I was guilty of this as well. I used to be 260# of pure fat but got down to 170 by the end of 2006. For a long time I had this desire of looking lean. I realized eventually (early 2009 I think) that I was just too skinny. 175ish at 5'10" but with "love handles". I was eating too little. No wonder I wasn't getting stronger.

I don't own a scale but today I weighed in at 202. My "love handles" are getting bigger (heh heh) but so is everything else. PR'ing in every lift I'm doing at the moment. I'm still pathetically weak compared to others but I'm at my strongest ever right now.... which happens to be stronger than Tamara !!! So yay for me !! LOL.

The good thing is I'm getting comments about getting bigger/stronger, not fatter, although I'm definitely packing on some fat. That's kindof motivating. But the biggest motivation is finally moving some more weight. Doing 5 reps in the DL with "3 plates a side" felt so darn good last week. No man should ever take this long to be able to move that weight. Of course, considering at a point in 2008 I ate 1500/cals a day (got down to 167) it's no wonder I was underperforming.

Long rant.... anyways, yeah, everyone should worry about getting strong first.... if you're 160 and looking to "lean out" while having a 95# pressand 255# DL 1RM... check your priorities! Loved this thread.

Pretty sure they do though. Just about all movie hero's are lean like Brad Pitt in just about any movie he's done (troy, fight club). Most women I know think the steroid induced hulkness of testicleless guys is disgusting. CF pretty much gives the ideal body type for both sexes which is lean an mean. Unless if you're mistaking the word 'lean' for malnourished in which case I'd agree.

EDIT: Wow I missed the boat on that one. Apparently this post is 6 pages now...

I'm developing a strong dislike for the word 'lean'.

No. Not ok. Eat more.

SOMEONE VALIDATE MY EXISTENCE PLZ KTHX [/end semi troll post]
Consider yourself validated, d00d!

You recognize that you're too skinny and are (I assume) trying to fix it. You're lifting a decent amount of weight for your size. And you're NOT too afraid of losing your abs to eat. Totally cool by me.
