Yes it would. That was my point. But also, it is very very hard for a female to gain 20 pounds of muscle.

comment Is it a good idea to only do cardio?
The fact is that the average guy has way too much fat, and too small muscles which he does not realize, because the fat is giving him the impression he has more. In my experience people trying to lose all fat, up to 6-pack, realize they become too thin, just because they thought they have more muscles underneath.

Quite the opposite. May be you are referring to the look of professional body-builders in their competitive period? Why would an extreme athlete in their peak form be the example that you think I had in mind?

comment Suggested Protein/Fat/Carb Ratio?
'that isn't going to work at all'... how did you come to that conclusion? Low-carb diets are the most effective for weight loss, according to lots of research (already gave a link to one). Also this very same diet is what I used to both gain muscle and get abs to show for the first time in my life.

comment Suggested Protein/Fat/Carb Ratio?
I wouldn't call it necessarily 'high protein'. In this case the % are high because the total calorie intake is low. So a 2.2g * X kg = high percentage, but the total amount is consistent with what athletes take when building muscle.

siouxfan45, actually Atkin's diet is the oldest, still very popular diet (originally introduced in the 70s).

Why would they fatigue quicker? Carbs get converted to ATP much faster than proteins and fats, but once in the blood, the energy from all the sources works the same way.

@RobinAshe provide sources for your claims? Because diets like Atkins, Paleo etc. based on low-carb are overwhelmingly beating all the others. If you want a reference, a Stanford study here youtube.com/watch?v=eREuZEdMAVo
