How much should I depend on the scale. I am 43 yr. old female and I am 5'7 and weigh 144 lbs. I do eat Mcdougall way of eating and I work out 6 days a week. I do 3 biking classes a week, 1 boot camp class and the other two days I lift weights and do some other form of cardio ( Kickboxing, step or elliptical). I do lift heavy one day a week when I do weights. My goal is to build a little more muscle, especially in my arms. I noticed that I feel like I have lost weight, but it is not showing on the scale.
Plus I know that you have covered this before, but protein myths are everywhere. My sister is doing a protein shake so that she can build more muscle. While I don't believe it will help me build more muscle, I was wondering if it would help my preformance to eat more protein rich foods.
