Hi Mike. I am 28 years old lady 160 cm , 54kgs with a BMR of 1280, body fat around 24 . I work out 4-5 days a week at least. I do 10 minutes Rpm bike first to warm up, and followed by the squats, prior lower body weight trainings, with lat pull downs or arm workouts sometimes for around 45-50 minutes , ending with a HIIT cardio for 10 minutes . My diet for breakfast is oats with full cream milk and protein shake , and pan fried chic breast 200 g with pasta 80g with 2 eggs and lettuce, protein shake for my dinner ( which is the post workout meal as I workout normally after work during weekdays).My concern is how much should I eat actually? Eat at my bmr or the tdee? I have a pear shape body which bothers me , but it just wouldn’t go off. Something went wrong with my gym routine or the diet plan?
Keep a calculator handy. To calculate your waist-to-hip ratio accurately, measure the narrowest point of your waist and the broadest part of your hip. Divide the values you obtained from the measurement and you have your ratio. The waist-to-hip ratio is a more accurate parameter to measure BMI. Those with a waist-to-hip ratio of 0.8 are susceptible to cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Studies have shown that increasing your protein intake to 25-30% of calories can cut cravings by 60%, reduce desire for late-night snacking by half, and cause weight loss of almost a pound per week… just by adding protein to the diet (19, 20).

Literally a years difference. December to December. I have been doing Intermittent Fasting since reading about it on your website last year. This is close to 40 lbs gone. It has been amazing! I love love love Intermittent Fasting and I’m so glad I read your post!
If I eat within my TDEE, like close to it but not over, can I build muscle? Will the fat stay, or will the accumulation of muscle, and the calories it burns, eventually “eat” up the fat? I really want to lose the weight, but I’ve lost the same 60 lbs 10 times already and don’t want to do that yo yo anymore. What gets lost this time, needs to stay lost forever, so I don’t want drastic changes.. I hope you understood my post and I appreciate any feedback you may have for me. Thanks 🙂
It’s stunning how often we eat out of boredom, nervousness, habit, or frustration—so often, in fact, that many of us have actually forgotten what physical hunger feels like. (Don’t miss these other common reasons you can’t stop eating.) If you’re hankering for a specific food, it’s probably a craving, not hunger. If you’d eat anything you could get your hands on, chances are you’re truly hungry. Learn how to recognize these feelings mistaken for hunger, then find ways other than eating to express love, tame stress, and relieve boredom. But talk to your doctor if you think you’re always hungry for a medical reason.
While you’re feeling famished, your metabolic rate also drops as your body attempts to conserve energy. This means you’ll naturally burn fewer calories, so you’ll have to cut even more of them from your diet in order to keep the scale on a downward trajectory, Ludwig explains.
“High-intensity sprints are my #1 go-to exercise to burn fat. It keeps the heart rate elevated and puts your body into what’s called an oxygen debt. This allows you to burn fat hours after your workout ends.” — Alex Petecca NCSF, New York City-based personal trainer

Eat every three hours – Passing on breakfast will send your body into starvation mode, meaning your body starts to store everything you’ve eaten as fat, and you’re midsection is the first to suffer the consequences
I’m 123lbs and a 5ft 2 female. I think I would be “skinny fat” – thin legs, arms, quite narrow back but still have a bit of a tummy. I am following your ultimate fitness plan for women and have your book. My only problem is that I’m a student and simply cannot afford to eat the amount of protein I’m supposed to, even with having protein shakes a day. I’m going away with friends this summer and would love to look and feel great – is the protein absolutely essential? Do you have any tips that may help me?
“After work, my colleagues and I always grabbed dinner—and it was usually deep-fried. Then we changed things up. Instead of nights out, we started walking and running around a local track. A year later, I’m down 40 pounds.” —Ellen Setzer, Cleveland, OH
Feel like something ‘Chocolatey? It seems obvious, if you want to lose weight don’t eat chocolate, right? In fact, research has shown the opposite to be true when it comes to dark chocolate. Occasionally indulging in the dark-stuff has been shown to decrease blood pressure and reduce cravings for salty, sweet and fatty foods. Look for choc treats that contain nuts & whole grains. You’ll feel fuller for longer and better curb your appetite until the next meal.
Similarly, if you are looking to lose water weight caused by retention, try drinking dandelion root tea, or a herbal tea that contains dandelion as an ingredient. It is a natural diuretic, and will help your kidneys to flush out excess fluids and sodium. Consider adding a few squeezes of…
