I’d like to introduce myself because i plan on being here a lot and often. My back ground is based in football and i was always fat and therefore was put as an offensive lineman m y whole career. now the cleats are hung up i am ready to get lean because the size is no longer part of my job requirements.
I have recently become highly motivated to lose ALOT of my weight and feel the Velocity diet along with the online support will only help add to my goals. currently im 6’5 292lbs with more than 30%bf i realize wanting a six pack is far fetched and quite some time away but i am committed balls to the wall.
I look forward to shredding with you all.
Welcome aboard, Cassidy!
Now, the first thing you’re going to run up against is the V-Diet calculator that spits out your menu and supplement package. You’re going to get this message: “This program is not recommended for you. Your personal information falls outside our program guidelines for body weight.”
The cutoff is 265. BUT, you’re what I call a " statistical outlier." You’re not an untrained obese guy but rather a 6’5" ex-football player. I assume that much of that weight is just from being a big tall guy with plenty of muscle under the excess fat, correct?
So you have two choices. 1) Lost some of the weight in a normal fashion with a good diet and training program, THEN hit the V-Diet. Or 2) “Lie” to the calculator, type in 265, and jump on the V-Plan now.
I normally don’t recommend #2 to those who don’t fit our program guidelines, but unless I’m wrong you really do seem to be an outlier.
What do you think?
