Just ordered the Velocity Diet for myself and the fiance. We’re both sick as shit of doing everything “right” and still not seeing results, so we’re very excited to see if this system lives up to its hype.
I have a desk job, but I get out to take very brisk walks nearly every day (hoping that takes care of the NEPA most days); like, I sweat during these walks, they aren’t casual strolls. Depending on my mood, I’m either doing a legs/shoulders or chest/back complex 4 days a week after work, some months I’ll do Wendler’s 5/3/1 as well, and the weekends are distance hikes or biking, or training for a half-marathon. So, not a couch potato by any stretch.
I love to cook and I love to eat. I’m also very interested in nutrition. Manufactured or processed foods are already prohibited in my kitchen; we get our carbs from white or sweet potatoes and white or brown rice, and there is always a lean protein and a large portion of veggies. However, at the office, we have a “snack” kitchen stocked with chips and candy, and I’m always taking something from there. I track every bite on MyFitnessPal, and I’m “affording” the calories, yet… clearly it’s not helping, because I’m not losing any weight or inches.
We’ve tracked calories, we’ve done Whole30, I’ve tried intermittent fasting and carb-cycling… nothing’s really made a lasting impression in the past year. I can definitely attest that since I started weight lifting, I’ve recomped. My current 175lbs looks much better than my old 175 from years ago, and can fit in smaller clothes. Still, I want better. I feel the work I put in and the amount of calories I eat, and the overall quality of the food I eat, should have gotten me more results.
The starting stats:
Bodyfat % (as measured by biometric floor scale): 23%
Waist (at navel): 33"
Natural waist: 31.5"
Thigh (thickest part): 25.5"
I’ll keep my log here once I get the stuff in the mail. I love to track stats, so it should be no problem to update. I had trouble finding the logs of other women doing this diet who had a similar situation and lifestyle as I do, so I hope my own log will be a useful reference for women who come after me.
