Eating chicken, ground chicken, ground turkey, asparagus, squash, tomatoes, quinoa, whole wheat pasta when we have pasta, 1 1/2 boiled eggs and almond butter with half a banana on rye bread(this is breakfast). NO sodas. I know she is getting frustrated and I know she has a hard time fitting exercise in a day since we both get up at 5:45am, eat breakfast get our little girl up and dressed and out the door by 6:50am. Has to be at work at 7:20am and gets off at 5:00pm. She goes and gets our daughter and we eat supper and by then its 6:30-7:00. After we play either outside kicking the ball with our daughter, we give her a bath and try to get her to sleep by 8:30-9:00. My wife is usually asleep shortly after this most nights. Sometimes she will stay up til 10:00-10:30. I feel sorry for her b/c she's eating good watching what she eats and no results. She keeps asking me about fat burners or something for her to take supplement wise. I looked on muscleandstrength.com but I don't know what to tell her. She doesn't want anything thats gonna give her the jitters. I was thinking the safest would be carnitine or some green tea extract but I don't know how effective they are.
OK, well in your previous post you mentioned she is going to the Doc, I'm glad the Doc was willing to go a different route other than with the regular meds etc. At least he tried or is trying with the eating part first.
How is her exercising going? How often, when and what is she doing? Still the DVDS?
The Supplements I would recommend. Would be CLA (you could get it with Tonalin) A good fish oil and Krill, could help too with cholesterol. L carnitine and green tea extract is good. Thats all a good stack. Look those up.
Most fat burners will "probably" give her the jitters, but everyone responds a little different, so it's really a matter of trying them. If she did want to try some, I would go by GNC or The Vitamin Shopp if you have one around you, and get some samples before spending the money for a whole bottle.
Also one thing for her or anybody to keep in mind about the weight part or not losing any. Sometimes if you're stuck looking at the numbers on a scale and they're not dropping. It could be because you're losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time, so the pounds don't drop. Which isn't a bad thing. And no she wouldn't be getting swole with BIG muscles either. That would mean she's toning up.
Hope that helps a little. Also bodybuilding.com
has a ton of info about working out and supplemements etc.
