Dpacs V-Diet Log


#1

I have been an athlete all my life and working out with weights fairly consistently for about 14 years. My goals have primarily been focused around getting big and strong, as I have always had a high metabolism up until I was about 28. I maxed out at 220lb. when I was 31.

I have since been trying to lean out since my body fat jumped to about 25% when all I was concerned about was eating and getting big. I am now 33 and down to 192lb with 17% body fat, but would really like to shred down to at least 13%. I am not so much concerned about my weight as I am with body composition.

I definitely enjoy a good challenge and from reading the diet and forums, this seems like a fairly good one.

I have received all my supplements for the diet and will begin Monday APR 13 2009.

I’m half way throught the first day. I took one HOT-ROX right before my walk this morning and it got me super amped! I felt like a dog who needed to be held back with a leash. haha. So far so good. I’m ready to jump into my workout, but I have training for work this whole week. Damn work! Always getting in the ways of my selfish personal goals. :wink:

Okay, so you have to use the quotes to post a pic to your thread. Doh! Some Engineer I am. haha

I had an interesting experience today. I have been consistently ingesting about a 3500 calorie diet prior to beginning the V-Diet. Obviousely my calories and especially carbs are more than cut in half. I was sure this would have a negative effect on my strength and energy in the gym. To my surprise, I was extremely energetic and much stronger than expected.

I hit the gym about 5 PM and blasted through the intermediate workout and could have done more. Yeah, I know…this is day one. We will see what happens as the week progresses. I figure, if I can get through the first weeks intermediate workouts without a problem, I will shift to advanced. Hopefully I’m not jumping the gun. :slight_smile:
