just wanted to give an update. I completed the diet 8 weeks ago at 190 lbs (total weight loss 35lbs). Since completing the V-Diet, I transitioned to a clean bulk diet of 3200 cals a day and currently weigh 196.

My cholesterol was:
Pretty dramatic change.
to everyone that is currently doing the diet, good luck. it is worth it.
