Starving yourself for a calorie deficit? Don't - it'll only backfire!
Here is a good article with references to scientific studies. It's not the best, but it's straight forward and easy to understand. http://www.myfitnesspal.com/to... And one more that breaks it down pretty well. http://fattyfightsback.blogspo... I agree with greerp that huge caloric deficits are usually bad things.

The starvation mode thing is just a myth. Just read the Starvation response entry in wiki or any medical text. I'm not trying to be a jerk, I just encourage everyone to learn the science behind it. If anyone knows of some scientific study that shows that im wrong, please let me know.

Strength Training for Women
The only muscular bulky women are body builders that train for years to look like that. Also they are taking testosterone injections. Women do not naturally produce enough testosterone to produce that amount of lean muscle mass (usually). Hell, even in the off season a lot of women bodybuilders get the body fat % back to a normal range and don't look too bulky at all.

1-2 tbsp a day for two weeks got rid of my gall stones. The ACV stimulates bile production which aids in digestion and helps cleanse the gall bladder and liver. Don't know about weight loss.

Weird what you crave
gotta start somewhere. I think the exercise becomes a lot more appealing after the weight starts leaving. My yoga classes are a lot less stressful with less belly in the way!
