I have a couple of questions though, I read in another thread that if the desired weight loss is over 35 lbs. than the formula should be this:
(10.2 x body weight + 879) x .50 = _______ x .8 = _______
(10.2 x body weight + 879) x .60 = _______ x .8 = _______
Will someone please direct me to the article that says this? I have saved the most current V-Diet to my favorites, and I do not see this in there anywhere.
The last measurements I took were on 01/15/09. I will update these once I begin with photos. They are as follows:
January 15, 2009
R bicep ? 12-1/2
L bicep ? 13-1/2
Hips ? 36
L thigh ? 26
R thigh ? 26-1/2
L calf ? 16-1/2
R calf ? 16-1/4
I estimate my bf to be in the high 30s for I am 5? 9? and 200 lbs.
This plan sounds like exactly what I need, a jumpstart on the weight loss, but more importantly to change my behavior with food.
I have found that my relationship with food is not very different from others who are overweight; I use food for the wrong reason. Instead of looking at food as nourishment and fuel for my activities, I look to if for it comfort, and/or use like a drug. Although, I do realize that it is okay to enjoy food, I just enjoy the wrong foods too much.
I know how to eat clean and have been eating clean on and off for some time, but one of my problems, besides portion control and timing, is that once I have a cheat meal; it is hard for me to get back eating clean again. I know this is common, I have read it in other threads, and forums.
Anyway, this diet is for me for it will help with cravings; help with portion control, nutrient timing, and a great jump-start on my weight loss to help with motivation.
I have ordered half of the supplements and should receive them next week. I will receive the ?Magic Bullet? next week; I purchased that for work just in case. I have the cooler, almond butter, peanut butter, flax, fiber tablets, tape measure, digital camera (but do not know how to post pictures yet ? I am technology challenged) but still need to get a couple of shakers, and stock up on plenty of bottled water.
I am not sure when I will start the V-Diet; it will be either March 1st or sometime this month. I want to get familiar with posting pictures, and I may run through all of the exercises suggested to get an idea of weight, form and etc. for I would be considered a beginner and although I am familiar with most of the exercises, I still have to Google a few of them.
Once I start the diet, I plan strict adherence, and will do all that is recommended by the author–diet, exercise, post pictures, measurements, etc.- No Excuses, No Modifications!
I am sick of my body being this way!!!
Please help, I need all the encouragement, preparation, and advice I can get to ensure success. I welcome any advice.
