Every twoweeks, you must re-evaluate your client’s Basal MetabolicRate. As they continue to gainlean muscle mass and lose fat,their BMR will change. They willactually need to start eatingmore to accommodate their in-crease in lean body weight. Takespecial care to explain this tothem as well as explain why thenumber on the scale is not asimportant as the relation be-tween Lean Body Weight andFat Weight. Also note that your client’s Upzig days should fall ondays that they will be training,and their downzag days are non-training days.
