The long and short is that I’m sick and tired of gaining ground in losing weight all week and then fucking it up over the weekend. I really need something to break that cycle, and I’ve been eyeing the V-Diet for years and years now. Really excited to finally get started!
I’m going to be following the diet entirely to the letter with one big exception: the workouts. I have serious medical issues with my neck that stretch out in pain down one arm and my back, and lifting weights in the manner that the literature calls for is not an option for me (which I have learned over repeated trial and error). I hope this isn’t grounds for blasphemous talk around here in a community so righteously focused on bodybuilding; my general opinion is just that you guys know your shit when it comes to nutrition and I want to emulate you however I can. It’s just, that “can” doesn’t extend to lifting heavy weights in a rapid fashion.
I’ll still be working out and working up a sweat four days a week. I like to use DDPYoga; since I’ve started with it, I’ve been a lot more pain free and have built up a ton of muscle strength in my back, legs, and arms. It focuses on strength and flexibility, and there’s a cardiovascular element to it, but it doesn’t go overboard.

I’ve already put in my NEPA for the day, and my HSM tonight will be some light sushi with my wife for Valentine’s Day.
