The fitness world -- especially big fitness media outlets -- might know how to appeal to women, and we have certainly started to see fat loss for women in healthier ways than before. But Mike Vacanti brings up some valid points in this post, most of which stem from one central concept: nutrition, even for fat loss, is contextual. The normal "rules" we tend to apply to nutrition -- how many calories are too little, how big a deficit to set, or how to set up macro intakes -- are all contextual. Mike's post, and his ability to lay out,  honestly, what might work for everyday clients, helps clarify how fat loss nutrition can vary from woman to woman.
