I have started the V-Diet today for the first time, and hope it will give me some results. (This morning I was at 154pound, BF18-20% with caliper, waist 29.9 inches. height 5 feet 4; not so bad for a girl, but far from what I want)
But I was wondering, how should we eat after the 6 weeks on the V-Diet? (Considering that I will probably still have some fat to lose after ending it)… Yeah, I know, “first, finish the 28 days of diet, b***!” ^^
So here are my questions:
*Does the 5 shakes should become 5 HSM, or only 3HSM + 1 shake?
*How fast should the calories increase? I was thinking about +100kcal/week, and stop to increase when the weight begin to stagnate.
*What about the macro? Should we kept protein as high as on the V-Diet? And what about fat? I’m a woman, and I have a hard time trying to keep my hormons in balance on low-cal diet. Also, I pack on both muscle and fat easily, but I have a hard time to lose.
I was thinking about slowly drop the protein to 1g per pound of lean body mass, and up fat to 0.5g/pound of lbm, but I don’t know for carbs. I was thinking first to add vegetables (few carbs), then drop protein and increase fat, and at last add some roots (carbs again).
Every thoughts and piece of advice on this will be welcome!
(I hope my english was understandable, since I’m french)
