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.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
First thing every morning before I shower. I find this helps me monitor better and keep me accountable as if I have gone over in Calories or Carbs the day prior it is usually reflected on the scales.
