You will see a much bigger transformation if you do the Classic version. This is hard for women to hear but when you are over weight by more than a few pounds, you need to build lean mass (muscle) to increase your metabolism. While you build lean muscle (don’t worry this doesn’t make you look bulky) you will burn fat when you manage your diet and by doing the cardio part of Classic (Plyometrics and Kempo). Moreover, what most women don’t realize is that your metabolism is raised after a resistance training session for up to 48 hours. After a cardio session, your metabolism will return to normal within 2 – 3 hours.
Set your diet to 1500 calories (this is lower than my usual recommendation of 10x your weight but you are a shorter person and 1500 is sufficient calories for you). Eat your calories in a 40/40/20 ratio of carbs/protein/fat. That means you’ll have 600 calories a day as carb, 600 calories a day as protein and 300 calories a day as fat. This ends up being 200 grams of carb; 200 grams of protein and only 33 grams of fat a day. I can guarantee you this is less carb, WAY less fat than you’ve been eating and a lot more protein. You need a good protein powder to make protein drinks with to get to the protein requirement and not exceed your fat grams each day. My list of protein powders I use and recommend is at http://www.pressplayfitness.com/members/forum/#topic/Protein-Powders.htm.
