Hello! So! I have been working out for 7 years now. I am 5 ft tall and 122lbs. I want to get into figure competitions. So, I need to get down to 95lbs of lean muscle. My metabolism is horrible from yo yo dieting my whole life. I need advice from a woman who knows what she is talking about. My boyfriend was a bodybuilder for a long time. I feel it's alot different from what I need to do. His advice is that I need to be eating 17,000 calories a week to get my metabolism up as well as train hard. I have been doing 3500 calories on sat and sun. Then 2200 monday, 1800 tues, 2400 wed, 1500 thurs, 2000 friday. He said that by doing this, when I cut my calories down, it will be a huge difference and I will lose all the weight I need to. It just scares me to be eating that much when to lose weight I should only be having around 1500 cal a day. I am also vegan. So, I guess that makes everything much harder. I have also been taking creatine and Glutemine before and after my workout and I have been lifting til muscle failure. I was hoping you could give me some advice as to where I should start.
