IMHO it is a waste of money. Protein IS important, but most of the recommendations are for very serious strength athletes, in which case they still only need at most 1.2 grams per pound of lean-body-mass. Anything beyond that is waste.

Now in this case we are talking serious strength athletes, for the normal person looking to shed 15 pounds of fat and look good naked, at the beach, or just to have some self confidence, I think rounding down to 1 gram per pound of lean bodyweight is safe, and you will not lose muscle on that.

This amount of protein one can EASILY get from normal food choices, without wasting one dime on a powdered supplement.

But in the end it all comes down to how many calories you consume, and you wanna get a fairly high amount of protein in order to spare the muscles you have.
You are 100% correct that bodymass directly relates to calories consumed.

As far as supplmenents go, even on a 1500 to 1700 calorie a day diet, what I use when I am cutting, I still get more than enough protein from normal foods.

The whole protein craze in my mind comes from supplement companies.

Most of the time the sources that claim we need huge amounts of it are either:

A. Magazine or Internet source which either advertises Protein supps, OR sells advertising space to someone selling the supps.

B. Someone parroting A.

Wrong.

They simply did not count them correctly, OR did not calculate their BMR or TDEE correctly.

It is IMPOSSIBLE to even maintain body weight in a caloric deficit. The Human body CANNOT defy the laws of physics and thermodynamics.

The might have "counted" calories, but still did not limit them enough.

If I burn 2500 to 2700 calories a day, to maintain my weight, then to lose 2 pounds a week I need to eat 1500 to 1700 a day, to get me a rough 7,000 calorie deficit for the week.

Lets say I was gaining weight, and eating 4000 a day. Then I cut back to 3000.

Guess what? I'd STILL be gaining weight.

Even though I reduced the amount I had been eating, I would still not be in a deficit until I got the calories lower than 2500 a day.

"Deficit" means less than what you burn in a day, NOT just less than you had been eating.

One also needs the deficit to be significant enough to see results. 500 calorie a day deficit is needed to lose up to 1 pound per week.

If someone is losing fat slower than that it will be hard to mentally stick with it, as most people like to see results.

Most people also grossly over estimate how many calories they really need.

They over estimate how much muscle they have if they are male in many cases, and add a couple inches of height to the calculator, but in the end they are screwing themselves as the MATH does matter.

Some people do burn more or less calories than others, for genetic reasons sure, but NOBODY can defy the laws of physics and thermodynamics.

Leg and shoulders day at the gym today.

Increased my maximum squat to 100Kg (220 pounds)
Mind you, I only managed 5 reps and I did not get as low as I usually do...

Edit:
Forgot to mention, my body weight is coming in at around 64Kg (140 pounds)
What I would give to be able to bench press 100Kg again... One day, maybe.

Even though I did Back and Bis yesterday, I think I will do concentration curls today because I'm trying to connive a scenario where a girl is in front of me and I'll just start loudly saying "1001, 1002, 1003, Oh it's a deep burn, oh it's so deep. I can barely move my arm 'cause I did so many. I'm not sure if you heard but I did over a thousand". I just have to do that and see what reaction I get. It might be getting kicked out for the day. Who knows? That's the fun.

Had a weigh in today...

Numbers in brackets are from my last weigh-in about three weeks ago.

Edit: Might help if I put in my height: 5' 5"

Weight: 138.8 pounds (141.8)
BMI: 23.8 (24.2)
Body fat: 16.6% (16.9)
Muscle: 40.2% (40.2)
Visceral fat: 8% (8)
BMR: 1518 calories (1538)

All I want is for the fat percentage to go down and the muscle to go up!
Things are slowly headed in the right direction though...

I've been focusing more on compound movements these days, which I think has been helping my appearance. My diet seems fine, I mostly am back to cooking most of my meals. I may try to bulk up a bit, but I think I just want to be *slightly* leaner than this...

This is a few weeks old too. I think there are some minor differences between then and now.

that's pretty much my goal. but i'm mainly after well-defined muscle, at this point. i get bulky very easily. so i've had to limit my calorie intake and increase my cardio (i run longer and take shorter breaks inbetween weight exercises). i've never taken my BMI or anything; just go by how my abdominals and arms look. do you intake a lot of carbohydrates? unfortunately, i love breads and pasta. i've made a pact with myself to only eat them on Sunday (and that's only if i've met my workout goals for the week).

I try to keep under my daily limits for fats and sugars, but go above for protein. Then try to keep near but not go over my carbs and calories.
I use myfitnesspal.com a lot!

Your Sunday pact sounds interesting...

Maybe this has something to do with a bout with a cold, upper respiratory infection and laryngitis but I am very discouraged. I have been watching my portions (Heck with the illness it's been mostly liquids and soft foods like pudding and cottage cheese.) and doing my best not to eat fattening foods. I walk to and from work as exercise, it's roughly a one mile distance one way I believe, because I have no resources for any other type of activity but it's radically clear that I am never going to be a single digit dress size. I have noticed waist shrinkage as my pants have been a bit loose, but not so much weight fluctuation. Is it possible that my body has more muscle to fat ratio and that I'm perfectly healthy even though I'm not what most people consider skinny? Most girls have smaller frames doing the exact same things I do, why am I finding it hard to reach the same level of smallness? Female hormones and their effect on the body especially when you're middle aged are so perplexing. It's interesting because my gut might shrink but my overall frame does not.

Without knowing anything more specific about your frame and build (not going to ask a lady that question either!) it is difficult to give advice which is, well, specific...

However, one thing which you absolutely need, in my opinion, if you want to tone up, are resistance exercises. This can be done quite cheaply. You can buy resistance bands which are quite inexpensive and allow you to work out a wide range of muscles. Pull up bars which you can fit to door frames. Tinned food cans which can be used for bicep and tricep exercises, or even large, like 2 litre, plastic water bottles.

While clearing out all the crap which had fallen down the back of my desk drawers (and stopping them from closing) I found a fitness sheet from the gym where I still attend today. The sheet is ten years old... !

What I found interesting is that I am 4 pounds lighter now than I was then. But even more interesting is that all the strength exercises I do now, I am lifting/pulling/pushing much more than I ever used to.
The only areas I need to improve on are my running times and stamina, what I did not remember is that back then I could belt out 2 mile runs in under 14 minutes...

Going to show it to my personal trainer. It might give him a chuckle.

To be fair, walking 2 miles is not that strenuous, unless it's uphill. My ankles were KILLING me after we hiked uphill 2 miles last week. And then we walked the 2 miles back, but at least it was downhill!

I have a friend who has a very stocky build. It's just what she is - she's short and stocky. She too will never be a single digit clothing size. She can road bike for 40 miles at a stretch and go snowboarding for a week straight. THAT is strenuous, and something I cannot do.

So if you can do what she does, forget about the scale or your clothing size. It really does not matter. You are obviously fit.

But to be honest, to walk leisurely 2 miles a day and think that you have more muscle than fat is kind of preposterous. Women don't build muscle as mass like guys do, and it's even more true if you don't have the frame for it. I can lift more than my body weight and my measurements have barely shifted from when I was a weakling. I just don't have the frame for it. My muscle fibers have merely gotten more dense and efficient, but they have not gotten bigger.

The most important thing is to be fit. Keep walking, and add hiking to the mix if you want a little variety.

My first day Wendler, SQUATS

150 kg one max rep (actually I can do 2 but better on the safe side I figured)

5 times 100kg
5 times 112,5kg
5 times 127,5kg

To finish it I did some reps with 120 kg 6 and 6 and 4 reps with 125 kg.

Feels great not maxing out.

Skipping benching though for a few weeks due to shoulderpain, substitutes will be standing shoulderpresses.

i'm officially on week 4 of Les Mills Combat.

I haven't noticed too much difference in weight, but I kinda blame my lack of discipline with food on that, but I have noticed a big improvement in balance and flexibility. i can now front kick shoulder height easily (i'm 5'7) and possibly even higher

To finish it I did some reps with 120 kg 6 and 6 and 4 reps with 125 kg.

Feels great not maxing out.

Skipping benching though for a few weeks due to shoulderpain, substitutes will be standing shoulderpresses.
That`s pretty impressive...

I had a minor achievement last night on the treadmill. Managed to do my fastest 1 mile run for ten years. 6 minutes and 35 seconds, works out at around 9.1 mph.
Going to try for just under 6.5 minutes next time. I just hope I don't throw up!

My father gave me one piece of advice. He said "Always. .." No, he said "Never..." well actually he gave me two pieces of advice, I've forgotten the other one. But the important one is, "Never chase a man over a cliff".
