I have a friend that I suggested the V-Diet to since I had great success with it before. His back story: He has always kept in fairly good shape being a combat MOS in the Army. He wouldn’t eat anything he wanted or has a nasty diet but ate a lot due to the activity and stress of our job.
After 3 deployments later the toll has finally been taken on his body and his knees are almost destroyed from IED blasts. He has arthritis in his right knee and his left knee is messed up too but not nearly as bad. He is currently getting injection in his right knee that seem to help but they say his knee will just continue to degenerate.
I don’t know how good the diagnosis is considering they are army PA’s and don’t have real doctor degrees. Regardless though his knees are messed up and most of the leg workouts would be out of the question. He will still be able to do the walks and wants to shed these unwanted pounds he has put on over the last year. He still eats like he used to but isn’t doing nearly as much exercise so the weight gain has built up. I would guess around 23-25% fat.
Is there alternate exercises he can do for the various leg exercises or would you it be best for him to try something else? I will appreciate any help.
