I have a problem with my heart (SVTï¿½??Supra Ventricular Tachycardia) and a bit of a sensitive stomach, but am otherwise a healthy and fit 21-year-old male college student. I have been lifting seriously and eating carefully for some time and want to try the V-Diet at some point this summer to cut a bit (although I am pretty slim… six-pack is visible a bit).
On account of my SVT, my doctor has advised me to stay away from caffeine. I had a catheter ablation about a year ago that fixed two of the three mechanisms for SVT that the doctors found. The one that they missed (as it was really close to my AV node, and they didn’t want to risk screwing me up and putting me on a pacemaker) doesn’t seem to contribute too much to my condition, as I haven’t gone into SVT since (although they were able to induce it in the operating room after the ablation procedure had finished). To play it safe, my doctor has me on a small dosage of a beta blocker (Toprol) and advises that I don’t use caffeine.
Can someone tell me how they think this will effect my progress on the V-Diet, and any adjustments I should make, particularly in place of HOT-ROX?
Thanks a ton!
