Alright so I'm a 24 year old female, athletic build but have always had more hips, ass, and thigh fat. I've always had a lot of muscle but hang on to about 22 to 23% fat at 154 - 156lbs. I got some advice to cut fat completely (good and bad) and that is the "asshole" way to lose weight but it works.
It did work but I know its definitely not the healthiest way and we NEED good fats to train right. I'm back and square one and am currently competing in the open. I would at least love to be in the 140's and much leaner than I am now. Is it just consistency with portions of protein, fat, carbs (meat, good fats, veggies) and limiting fruit and nuts daily that is really that simple to lose those last few pounds or am I missing something? And eating like this 5 or 6 times a day?
I really want to be as lean as I can for competing and just get lighter in general. I train about 5 times a week pretty consistently. I'm clearly driving myself crazy and wanted to know if any other women out there (or anyone with good suggestions) have any idea what I need to do. Any advice is welcome, thanks guys!
