I really don’t suggest traditional cardio during the V-Diet. In any lower calorie diet, the risk of muscle loss is too great. Now, if you’re just talking about walking on the incline treadmill, that’s fine, and there’s no risk of muscle loss or metabolism slowdown with just walking. With the components of the V-Diet, there are many muscle-protectants in place to keep that from happening. In fact, many people gain some muscle while on the V-Diet.
FYI: The machines that have calorie counters are notoriously inaccurate. Most are very high or at least close to wild guesses. I’d pay no mind to those machines.
Now, outside of the V-Diet I do normally recommend Mag-10 for semi-fasted cardio, whether it’s traditional cardio (running on a treadmill) or the type of conditioning work I recommend: HIIT style, short but intense sessions, like in my Predator Conditioning article. In the context of the V-Diet, it’s probably not necessary if you’re following the NEPA guidelines in the diet. Still, it would not hurt to have, say, 1 scoop of Mag-10 before the treadmill work. That’s all you’d need, and it would ease your mind. So that’s fine.
If you’d like to switch the Surge Recovery for Plazma, that’s fine too. One scoop pre-lifting and one scoop during should be all you need.
