My wife and I started the V-Diet on Jan. 12th in hopes of finally losing some fat. I wanted to help her get on a healthier track since her doctor was warning her of being a little on the overweight side.
I turned her onto this diet and she was excited to try anything. We tried to eat healthy, but failed miserably during the weekends when we hung out with family and friends.
We figured with this diet, it?s telling you exactly what to do and what to eat. I definitely think that was the missing piece. You go to the gym or do cardio and you know exactly how many reps and sets to do or how many mins. to run, but you never know exactly how to eat to lose fat and/or gain muscle. For me, aside from trying to lose my love handles, I wanted to finally learn how to keep track of my calories and macronutrient count.
Also, I started developing some bad eating habits esp. with the sweets and fried foods due to the fact that the ?I am working out, I?ll burn this off!? mentality. Plus, I was a big social drinker. Every time we went to a club or hung out with friends, I always had a drink in my hand.
I?ve got to say with this diet, we were able to conquer a lot of fears and bad habits while creating some good ones.
For me, I learned how to count calories and macros to the exact number. Also, I can look at people eating desserts and junk food without having the desire to join them.
Also, I haven?t had any alcohol since we started this diet and we?ve gone out numerous times. Best part was finally getting my wife on a workout and diet plan. She actually likes it since she?s seeing results and not getting any nasty headaches from the lower calories. The NEPA walks have been great since it gives us time to just hang out by ourselves and talk and laugh about anything.
The Transition period is awesome because it feels like the food is so different now. Healthy food is tastier than ever. My wife loves veggies now. Hahah it’s great.
My wife has lost about 10-12 lbs. She has gone done remarkably in her love handles by 2.75? and in her hips by 5?. She won?t post pics so you?ll have to take my word for it. HAhah she?s shy.
I?ve gone down 16 lbs. from 175 to 159, lost 4? from my love handles, 5? from the area between my belly button and nipple line, while increasing my numbers during weight training.
We plan on staying on the transition for the next 2 weeks with 1 HSM a day, then moving to 2 HSMs a day and see where we can go from there. We?ve still got a long way to go, but we?ll definitely be ready for summer this time around
