    Well more so a friend does. I'm a rugby player and would consider myself pretty knowledgeable in what I should eat and what I shouldn't eat but a female friend asked me recently if I'd help her put together a program and diet for her. Now when it comes to the program I'm fine but I'm slightly confused diet wise. I'm guessing her diet should be more or less the same foods I'm eating but in smaller portions?

    My daily diet:

    7:30 - 3 Weetabix + semi skimmed milk + 6 eggs scrambled 2 yolks

    9:30 - Tin of tuna

    11 - Protein Shake and a banana

    12:30 - 2 chicken fillets or turkey etc.

    3:30 - Protein shake + piece of fruit

    5:30 - Whatever Mammy makes

    7:30 - 3 weetabix + semi skimmed milk

    What confuses me is what should she be eating in a typical day? I know we should take into account bodyweight / exercise etc. But lets say a girl 133lbs doing weight training 3 times a week then she has gaelic training once a week and a match at the weekened. Objective is to lose some weight and tone up. The main problem is I only know whats worked for me :confused:

    A good diet for males or females is no different really, just the portion sizes.
    And that comes down to BMR.

    The portion sizes are also depend on if somebody is trying to put on muscle or lose fat.

    For your personal diet, it seems you are not getting a whole lot of carbs in daily, considering you play rugby etc. and it is highly energy consuming.
