44 y/o female, not overweight; came to me to get ‘fit’. She is a very disciplined clean eater and works with me 3 hrs a week with workouts on her own at home 2 days (mostly cardio). While she’s made tremendous progress with strength and muscle tone, I can’t seem to get the BF% down. She’s at 24.5% and wants to shave a few points off and then there is those stubborn ‘love handles’.

We’re strength training (progressive and supersets), cardio intervals and HIIT sessions, all of which she loves. She’s a nurse anesthetist, so snacking during the day is pretty much impossible due to her surgery schedules.

I am thinking that her protein/caloric intake is insufficient or perhaps we are over training? Welcome your thoughts.
