    Hey guys, got a strange question. This friend of mine came to me asking for help losing weight for the summer. I said no problem and put her on a diet and gave her a really basic idea of what to do when at the gym. I didnt go into too many specifics, but if she is doing what I say, she is at a calorie deficit and should be slowly losing weight. She does a good amount of cardio, and is pretty strong for a girl (squats 125 for reps, DB presses w/30's)

    She calls me today and complains about GAINING 20 lbs.:eek3: I tell her that if she is expending more cals than she eats she will lose weight. She is eating about 1,500 cals per day, cardio everyday and weights mon/wed/fri.

    WTF is wrong with this picture? I need an outsiders view on this, I cant see where she would be gaining all that weight.

    She has been going to the gym for about 4-5 months.

    This is what im thinking.

    Im with her at the gym, and I work her ass off. So its not that.

    She must be eating a shit ton, though. 20lbs in 4-5 months with me kicking her ass in the gym everyday?

    People are notoriously bad at determining how much they eat. She's either terrible at measuring her calories, or lying to you.

    I make her add her shit up on fitday.com, then add 200 cals for things she didnt think about.

    Im being stingy on her cals as it is, I dont really want to go any lower. She probably weighs 150 right now.

    I hate to say it, but if she is lying to me about her diet, then im going to have to not help. her.
