When it comes to building muscle and losing body fat, there is a lot of information out there that can be confusing to women. In reality it’s pretty simple; the bottom line is results. Use these 20 tips and you’ll start seeing results.
#1 – Eat clean
Even if your primary goal is muscle growth (and not fat loss), keep those calories clean. Eat nutrient dense wholesome foods to build and support muscle growth.
#2 – Eat, don’t starve
No matter the goal, starving yourself will backfire. Women who starve themselves looking to lose weight tend to binge eat. If your goal is to build muscle, then you need to consume enough healthy calories to promote muscle growth.

Women tend to shy away from eating carbs. If your focus is primarily muscle growth, you will need healthy carbs to build muscle. If your goal is to lose weight, you will still need to consume some healthy carbs. This will provide your body with the energy it needs to get you through the day without crashing.
#4 – Eat protein
Building muscle requires protein. Aim for 1.5-2 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight.
