I have to admit I have a little confusion over Lean Body Mass content and the V.3 protien/calorie calculations. Everything I’ve ever read here suggests basing daily protien amount off of LBM in gram equivalents. I AM bad at math so corect me if I’m wrong, but using myself as an example for that equation, I am @ 210 pounds and roughly 10% BF. So as far as the gram per pound of LBM protien intake ‘standard formula’, I should be consuming no less than about 189 grams per day??
The main reason I ask this is that my GF has undergone the intensive V.3 “Velocity diet/program”. She started at around 182 lbs and likely 30% or so BF by my guess ( this collides with the question about the extra protien/calorie recommedatrions made that are strictly based on age, sex and weight…no LBM ??). Progress is slow at best and she is not losing anywhere near as much (about 1 pound at the halfway mark) as I thought she might following such a program. She feels the same way <.> She had the 37 pound, $500+ Biotest supplements delivered exactly 14 days ago and with only a 1 pound loss she is at the least to say, a tad frustrated…as am I. I have a huge background with T-Nation and all the athours and great people that have contributed over the years but find myself wondering what else can be done in this case for her to make her a LOT more progress than she has in the next short half of the first 28 day “V-Experience”. She follows the diet and supplement regimen to a TEE and is defintitely no stranger to exercise.
Any good help/tips/feedback would be greatly apprectiated.
Thank you for your time Chris.
