Simply eating less food isn't good enough. To look fit and healthy you also need to make sure you are eating the right types of food, and not undereating. Many women undereat protein and healthy fats, and tend to end up skinny but still flabby after a period of dieting.

Here are some tips that can help you maximize your diet plan, so you can look your best:

  • Calories - If you're looking to lose fat, start by eating around 1800 calories per day. Your goal is to lose about 1.5 to 2 pounds of fat per week. If you lose weight more quickly than this, you also tend to lose muscle mass. The result is a skinny, but flabby body. So don't lose weight too quickly!

  • If you're not losing weight at this calorie level, drop your calorie intake down to 1650 for a period of no less than 2 weeks and reassess your progress. 

  • Protein - Make sure you're eating at least 100 grams of protein per day. Protein helps you retain, repair and build muscle tissue. Many women underestimate how much protein that take in per day, so it's good to monitor this vital macronutrient.

  • For any beginner working shoulders, the first set should be with a very light weight. Aim to improve at least one aspect of your workout each week.

  • Aim for 3 sets on each exercise with a rep range starting at 15, then down to 12 then down to 10.

  • Exercises I recommend for shoulders: Seated Dumbbell Press, Dumbbell Lateral Raise, Dumbbell Reverse Fly & the Upright Row.

  • To grow you need to eat more daily calories then it takes to maintain your body weight. If you eat 3000 calories per day and don't gain weight, 3000 calories is your maintenance level. You are "maintaining" your weight by eating this amount of food each day.

  • To GAIN weight (muscle!), you must simply eat more then it takes to maintain your weight. It really is as simple as that.

  • Now I know what your next question do I know what my calorie maintenance level is? The don't know. Yet. But we are going to find out. Learning how your body responds to food intake requires some trial and error. Here is what you need to do:

  • Start at 3500 Daily Calories. Eat 3500 calories per day for 2 weeks. You must count calories during this period. Eat no more, and no less.

  • Not Gaining Weight? If you did NOT gain weight by eating daily 3500 calories during this two week period, eat 3800 daily calories for the next 2 weeks. If you are still not gaining weight after 2 weeks, add more daily calories.

  • Gaining Too Much Weight? If you gained more then 3-4 pounds during this 2 week period, bump your daily calories down to 3200 and try that for 2 weeks. If you are still gaining weight too rapidly, lower your daily calorie level again.

  • Whey protein is unsurpassed in its ability to provide fast acting protein that is readily absorbed and utilized by your muscles. Whey protein is also highest quality of protein available. Whey protein is a rich source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), containing the highest known levels of any natural food source.

  • Whey protein is one of 2 types of protein that comes from milk (the other being casein protein). It's made during the process of cow's milk being turned into cheese. When the milk is being turned into cheese, the whey protein is a by-product.

  • The cornerstone of any hardgainer’s diet should be frequent protein feedings. Whey protein should be taken at minimum post-workout, and first thing in the morning. During these times the body is craving raw materials, including protein and amino acids.
