So I started the V-Diet today. Was planning on doing this for a while now and I think the timing of the 3.0 is perfect.
A little bit about myself. I am 35 yrs old and have been hitting the gym since I was 14. Right now I weigh 222 lbs and have 19.2 % bodyfat. I have chronic pain in my right shoulder as well as my right knee (busted those two joints a couple of times in the past).
I will try to follow the 3.0 program but there will be some tweaks. Each week I will try to upload the progress using the training forms and some pictures and measurements.
Now let’s go over the differences with the original program.
No matter what I do my stomach won’t allow me to ingest only liquids especially proteins. Because of that I will have to have a solid meal a day. The rest of the diet will be the same with the exception of a salad for lunch:
- organic italian green salad mix
- organic cherry tomatoes
- organic bell pepers
- 1 tbsp milled flax
There is no dressing whatsoever on the salad.
I will be using the supplements form the program with the following exceptions:
- Flameout will be replaced with Krill Oil
I have been using Flameout for about two years and it is an amazing product but for me the Krill Oil works better. Since I have started the Krill Oil I don’t have any pain in my joints no matter how hard I train.
- HOT-ROX Extreme - I will be using only 2 caps a day instead of four
For me HOT-ROX is the best supplement I have ever taken. Period. Unfortunately I don’t react very well to stimulants and since Yohimbine was added I cannot take more than 2 caps. But man those 2 caps make a difference!
And yeah, I don’t know what Biotest puts in this supplement but every time I take it, about 20 min later I get that “Zing!!!” feeling, I don’t know how to explain it better, it feels like I am high. Right now it got to a point where I can say I am addicted to that feeling which is kinda scary!
I will be using the advanced program and will stick to it.
So there you have it. Later today I will post the starting measurements and some pictures.
