I am posting to the V-Diet forum because I am 4 days into the diet and want to share my success so far!
This is my first post on T-Nation. I have been an active stealth reader of T-Nation for years. It’s the v-diet which has prompted me to make a profile and a public post.
I started the V-Diet at 228.4, and on day 4, I am down to 218.4. Clearly there is significant water and glycogen loss there, but it’s a motivating start none-the-less!
I am a amateur triathlete and addicted gym rat. As you can see from my picture, I am fairly lean at about 12% body fat. My goal with the v-diet is to loose some weight so that I put less stress on my joints during triathlon training.
Check out my blog at freybird.blogspot.com if you have any questions about what long-course traithlon training involves.
I got all my Biotest supplements ready to go, Metabolic Drive, Superfood, Surge. Plus, I got the fish oil and flax seeds. I am not doing any triathlon training during the diet, just easy morning walks and thrice weekly lifting. I am doing the diet straight by the books, as Chris Shugart wrote it.
I will be updating my blog and this website with information about my success on the V-Diet.
