Bonus Articles for V-Dieters


#1

A reader suggested I post some older articles of mine that are helpful to the V-Dieter, but not necessarily about the Velocity Diet. Not a bad idea.

Here are several articles that I think the V-Dieter will find helpful or motivational. Most of these deal with the mental and psychological aspects of body transformation.

If you haven’t read them yet, I hope you get something out of them!

Ready to Break Through with the V-Diet
#2

Read all the articles at once. I think its been a long time since i got kicked in the nuts like that (if i ever had). Each of these articles punched me to the ground and made me see what makes a real man and how i haven´t been one in some (quite a few) aspects.

This is good advise for anyone, not just someone looking to emprove his/her body, especially in today´s half-ass society. Thank you.

PS: I guess if i had to put anything else in i would put “What it feels like to push yourself to the limit, by Craig Weller” from “What It Feels Like…, compiled by the Editors” in. Makes one think about true limits and how one almost never touches them.

Amazing writing Chris. Maybe I’m blind and can’t find it, but did you do away with Shugart’s Hammer?

Thanks. The Hammer is still there. I just haven’t added much to it in a while. That may change soon.

Chris, the Hammer helped me change my life. I reread almost every article in there every six months to make sure I haven’t forgot what I’ve learnt. I also make it required reading for anyone I attempt to help lose weight.

Hope to see some new additions soon. I’m in the process of changing careers now, but don’t know whether the V-Diet is a good option at the moment as have a physical evaluation that involves strength, speed and endurance tests in May and I will probably regress in those areas if I attempt it yeah?

Well, here’s the deal. I don’t recommend the V-Diet or any strict fat loss plan for in-season athletes. They should be eating for performance. That doesn’t mean eating junk, but it does mean eating more overall calories and probably more carbs. Save fat loss diets for the off season.

However, one of the things many V-Dieters notice is performance improvement. This is simply because losing excess fat is the best performance enhancer. The body is just more functional and athletic. So while strength may not go up while on the V-Diet, losing 15 or 20 pounds does make you much better at running, push-ups, pull-ups, dips, jumping, sprinting, etc.

And while some people feel a little “off” the first few days, they usually adjust after a week or two.

Maybe that will help you make your decision.

Thankyou Chris, it certainly has removed one doubt. I also have a written exam I need to prepare for. I’m pretty confident I’ll pass it, but I have set myself goals of exceeding the entrance requirements by getting 100% on all exams. Have you or anyone else had any problems studying whilst on the V-Diet?

Also, Do you know if HOT-ROX Extreme can been imported into Australia now. Two years ago I managed to beat the system, but I know there used to be some ingredient in it that’s banned here.

Thanks again.

VERY low carb diets can cause some mental blahs. But the V-Diet isn’t VERY low carb; carbs are just reduced and properly timed. So, most people don’t get the mental blahs.

Not sure about HOT-ROX and Australia. Contact Biotest customer service and they’ll be able to help you out.
