I am on day 14 of the V-Diet. So far, it hasn’t been as bad as I expected. I have been lurking, but I’ve hit a stumbling block and I have become concerned.
First let me say that I am following the program as prescribed with one exception. No HOT-ROX. It makes me feel really ill and jittery all day so after three days, I stopped taking it.
After the first week, I had very good results. -9.6 lbs, -3.5 in off my waist, all measurements went down. However, during week 2, there has been virtually no change. I lost a pound, but most of my measurements were exactly the same. I expected things to slow down a bit, but not this much.
I wanted to bounce some questions off you guys and see what you think:
Is it possible I’m cutting calories too much? I need to lose a lot of fat, maybe 40 lbs or so. I calculated using the > 35 lbs calculations, but I think now I might have cut things too much, and I might be slowing down my metabolism. Right now, I’m doing 5, 2 scoop shakes, 4 Tbls of flax and 6 flameouts. A few days ago I added 1 Tbl of natural PB. That’s about 1375 cals w/out PB, 1475 with. On workout days, I add Surge, so I’m about 1800 on those days. BTW, right now, I’m at 210.
Is such a slow week two even an issue? Should I expect a steady and slow loss for the rest of the way? I wasn’t expecting to lose everything this month, I just wanted it as a jump start and to get me in the zone of eating right again.
I can push through. As I said, it isn’t as bad as I thought, I’m just looking for suggestions or comments about how I might fine tune to get max results. I suppose I can get going on the HOT-ROX again, but it seriously made me want to puke all day long (just one capsule in the morning). Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
