    Hey,

    Yea im not a female, but a friend of mine wants to lose weight and asked for my help, as im not trying to lose weight , im bulking i am unsure of what to tell her :(

    I know there are lots of fat burners available, but what would be good to get her weight down ?

    HIIT seemed like it could be a good idea

    any help is appreciated

    Hi Mark,

    Advise her to adopt a balanced, health diet that is high in protein, complex carbs but low in saturated fats. She will also need to do 4-5 days of cardio each week as well as 2-3 resistance training sessions a week too.

    Fat burners help, but only in conjunction with regular exercise and a healthy diet as suggested above.

    At least 30-45 minutes each time to achieve fat burning. She can incorporate intervals or do things like increasing the load or incline as it becomes easier - perhaps 4-5 weeks in.

    I believe that females should not be frightened of using heavy weights. I lift heavy weights and do not look like Ms.Olympia....there is a common misunderstanding among females and males that females lifting heavy weights will bulk. Not true at all - in fact, it's quite difficult if not impossible without supplementation of steroids etc. For a weight-training program, it's best if she see a personal trainer to tailor program to her. When I first started, I simply read through a lot of Women's Muscle & Fitness and Slimming magazines (that we get in Australia) and wrote my own program based upon their recommended exercises, sets and reps.
