Today, I’m starting my Velocity Diet journey. I’ve been reading on the Velocity Diet for a year or so now and of course following Gus’ and everyone else’s logs. Of course the progress that people have made is inspiring and motivating. The rigidness and simplicity of the plan are positives to me.
I’ve always thought of myself as a pretty disciplined person but I’m also an “All or Nothing” type. So when I’m on I’m on and when I’m not… I’m not. I’m ready to see my body in the best condition it’s ever been in and I think this diet is the ticket to getting there. I know I will get tons of support from the people on this site.
I’ll be faithful to log my diet and workouts every day and talk about the thoughts I’m having and things I’m experiencing along the way. I’ll be following the workouts that Waterbury put together for Gus’s PC. I’ve got some starting out photos to post. I was going to try to put them all into one image but that would take too long for me to sit here and mess with so I’ll just post them individually.
Starting Weight: 191 lbs.

5 shakes = 1100 calories (approximately)
