Greg's Diet Log 2


#1

2 Years ago i did a V-Diet with excellent results. Went from 245lbs to 205 (and eventually 195) doing a full V-diet and a 2 week V-diet. after 5 months of work i got down to 195lbs. the old log can be found here http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/diet_performance_nutrition_bodybuilding_velocity_logs/gregs_diet_log

Since then, however, a lot has happened. I moved, i changed jobs 6 times and through all the stress i went back to my old eating habits. Now i weigh just about 250lbs again. Now that i have much more stability in my life, its time to get my weight back under control again. The velocity diet is the simplest and most effective way to do that. so here I go again.

Height 6’
Weight 249.8
Neck 16.5
Shoulders 55
Chest - Upper 45
Chest - Lower 42
Waist - at Navel 46
Waist - at largest 46
Hips - at largest 48
Upper Arm - L 16
Upper Arm - R 16.5
Upper Leg - L 29
Upper Leg - R 29
Lower Leg - L 17
Lower Leg - R 17
Ankle - L 10
Ankle - R 10

My supplies wont arrive until wednesday so for the first couple of days i will be using left over supplies. Tomorrow will be day 1 and it will be a MAG-10 pulse fast. i will be doing a few of those throughout because i found them to be very effective last time i did the V-Diet.

Looks like your are a pro at this! Awesome results last time. I’m sure you will tear it up again this time around. It’s really helpful and inspiring reading your posts.

Notes: Hit the rest time on the lifts perfectly. this was an issue for me last time so i kept it fairly light and hit the rest times dead on. Front squat was easy, need more weight next week. Did BB bench instead of DB bench because i dont have heavy enough DBs at home. Really extended with the ab wheel. NEPA was short due to time constraints, going to go for more tomorrow. when the weather is better i want to get outside and walk for real. Pulse fast went well. i was just fine all day but got hungry around 5pm. Chewing mint gum helps. Day 1 in the books.

Day 2: 2/4/14

NEPA: 15 minutes on treadmill

Shakes: all good so far

Notes: No problems. i have enough protein to last me through thursday, i should be getting my shipment tomorrow evening but with the expected snow storm there may be a delay. i forgot how filling the shakes can be. I did have an active day today so im not concerned about how short the NEPA was. once the weather gets better i will be walking outside for longer periods of time.

Had a very busy day. threw the HSM in because i was invited out to eat so i kept it kinda clean. might have been a little much but its not a huge deal. didnt have time for NEPA. Going to make up for it this weekend. the lift was rushed. hit the rest times perfectly but took some things pretty light. I purposefully did not have my last shake because the HSM was more than i think i should have ate.

Notes: 6.8lbs down, not bad. probably would have done better with more NEPA. half an hour is minimum. i should shoot for an hour a day. Lift went well, front squat felt really good at 185, will increase next week. lat pulldowns can also go up. bench can go up 5lbs next week. got the NEPA in after my lift. i really want to get this in the morning but i have been over sleeping a little bit. even if i only get 15mins in when i wake up that is ok if i get more in at night. the shakes are getting easier to finish. Pulse fast tomorrow.

Day 13: 2/15/14

NEPA: 30 mins on treadmill

Shakes: Pulse Fast

Notes: so 2 years ago MAG-10 was different. it was just hydrolyzed casein and citrulline malate. now it has dextrin and isomaltulose and has more calories and carbs etc. they no longer advertise the pulse fast anymore and MAG-10 is more of an intra-workout powder now, and nearly identical to plazma…which is very similar to what anaconda was…its all very similar really. the point is that i have not been seeing the dramatic results a pulse fast used to bring. so i am going to order some hydrolyzed casein and citrulline malate and make my own.
