The last 2 weeks I have been seriously contemplating the Velocity Diet. The only thing holding me back is the cost, the days off between training and the commitment to 28 days of shakes. I have been strict with my nutrition in the past and have been down to 6 to 7 percent body fat before although I was really skinny and my composition was around 136 to 140 pounds with a lean mass of 128.
A couple of years ago I was as low as 131lbs with a lean mass of 119 at that time. During that time I was eating very low carb, not really watching calories all the time as I would eat large steaks etc… Just very low carb. I was also training in the morning before work fasted. I was following the Body For Life training plan. I did get really lean.
In the past 2 years I have stopped training fasted all the time, although I do still sometimes, especially cardio wise. I have gained a lot of strength and right nori weight around 172lbs and have a lean mass according to a Tanita scale of around 142-143.
What’s wants to lean out and keep as much muscle mass as possible as I have already been though other lean out programs but I lost muscle mass too. I think this Velocity plan might be the ticket to my goal of leaning out but staying strong.
I eat pretty clean right now but let myself slide sometimes and when I do overeat foods that I have restricted in the past, like peanut butter, or cereal, or sweets. I want o regain my focus and get back to being in great shape. My goal into get to 160lbs and have a lean mass of 145 plus. I think the V-Diet and training may be the way to go. Just can’t pull the trigger.
