I haven’t been posting but I’m just getting into week 4 of the V-Diet. I’m a 46-year-old guy who hasn’t been really serious about training since I left the military about 20 years ago. I started the diet at 173 pounds and about 21% body fat and now I’m 163 pounds and just under 13% BF, I also lost about 2 inches off my waist. I feel great and definitely see a change in body composition but I’d really like to get back down to about 10% BF. So here is my question… Do I repeat the V-Diet again, modify it or do something else completely.
Next week after I’m done with the diet I am starting a 7-week swimming training program that will have me swimming 3-days a week for about 1-1.5 hours each workout. One thought I had was to just replace my NEPA walks on those days with the swims, bump up to the intermediate workouts, add another shake on those days to compensate for the calorie loss, and keep everything else the same. I really like the simplicity of the diet and it fits my life really well since I’m so busy but is it helpful to keep going with this diet? After my swimming is done I’m thinking of switching to 5-3-1 to add some mass. Or should I just switch now? Maybe try another program?
Training and/or diet advice would be awesome! Any ideas?
