All right gang, I’m going all in. I just started my V-Diet journey Friday morning, July 12.
Ht - 5-11
Starting wt - 209#
Tale of the tape (in inches):
Neck - 16 1/2
Shoulders - 45
Chest - 42 1/4
Waist (above navel) - 38
Waist (Navel) - 38 1/2
Waist (below navel) - 37.75
Hips - 38 3/8
Upper arm -15 1/4 ®; 15 (L)
Upper Leg - 25 1/2 ® ; 24 3/4 (L)
Knee - 18 3/4 ® ; 17 3/8 (L)
Calf - 16 ® ; 15 3/4 (L)
I’m tired of being a barrel with legs, so my main target is the waist and spare tire that doesn’t want to go away.
Normal routine pre-diet has been Lifting 4 x week (Legs, Chest/shoulder, Back, arms split) fasted 30 min walking 6 x week
Also of shock was the disparity in my leg measurements. My quads are 3/4 inch difference and knees have 1 3/8 inch difference in mass. Helps explain why my squats suck. Measuring really opened my eyes here.
I’ll be doing the advance workout and v-burn.
Day 1 - Friday
Followed diet to a T with the below exceptions:
- added 1 spoon instant coffee to breakfast shake
- may have missed 1 Flameout, but can’t remember
- only 1 serving Plazma for workout
Finished my existing program with last day arm workout
3 superset groups of Tris/Bis - fairly easy workout so only went with one Plazma serving
I’ll start the V Diet Advanced on Monday, but wanted to get started on the diet portion right away.
NEPA walk done (not much of change from the norm as I walk the dog first thing each AM fasted. Two miles in about 30 min)
Day 1 HSM:
6oz Top Round - trimmed lean, grilled and cubed
3/4 cup cooked jasmine rice
1/4 red bell pepper (diced)
6oz zucchini (basically whole zuke weighed raw)
~1/8 of yellow onion (diced)
~2 cups baby spinach
1 TBS EVOO
Cook it all up together
Food calculator had everything come in just below 700cals
Day 1 Notes:
Slight headache all day
Definitely missed chewing by the afternoon after 3 shakes
Received word I won a big contract at work after losing most of my portfolio over the last 6 months. Would have celebrated with some Bourbon if I had waited for a Monday start.
