Day 4, and my first post. Photos, measurements to come this weekend.
I never had to worry about my body composition until recently at the age of 27. I’m standing 5’7", weighing in at 175lbs., and have a fluctuating body fat percentage that allows me to see 4 abdominals if I’ve been watching my beer intake carefully.
Genetically, I’m moderately built. I’ve always been able to maintain a somewhat above average level of muscle mass and low bf percentage with minimum effort. Scratch that.
No effort. And strength always came along with very little training as well. Within my first quarter of “weight training” in college, I was benching and squatting 315, at a body weight of 150lbs. I smoked, drank, and never even considered the nutritional aspect of food.
Fast forward 9 years… after seeing pictures of myself after a vacation about 8 months ago, I nearly shat myself. Who was this pudgy fuck? Where did all that fucking lard come from? I decided to make a change. I quit smoking, started eating clean, counting calories, and exercising 6 days a week. I made some progress.
I got stronger! I saw some definition again! I lost some fat! So, of course I took the next logical step: I “rewarded” myself with a drinking night. Then another. And another. Each followed of course by a binge eating session (ever heard of the Jim’s Steakout Stinger?). Needless to say, my body transformation dreams went limp like whiskey dick.
About a month ago I started browsing articles in T-Nation. As a fellow psychology major and writer, Shugart immediately stood out to me as a motivational force I could relate to. I started reading his articles, and realized I was pissed off enough to take the next step in body transformation.
Always the skeptic, I thought I could pull this diet off without the prescribed supplements and made an attempt at doing my own “V-Diet”. Two days in, I experienced painful bouts of hunger, a shite mood, and pitiful energy levels. Which pissed me off even more…
So, here I am, day 4 of the real V-Diet. I feel great. Workouts have been awesome. And I kid you not, I am already seeing results in the mirror. I am absolutely determined to transform my body into a chiseled instrument of masculine beauty which women will find impossible to resist. There, I said it.
In advance, thank you Chris Shugart, Chad Waterbury, and the rest of the V-Diet crew.
How the hell are the rest of you V-Dieters doing?!
