I’m male and 217 pounds. I’ve done V-Diets before, with and without modification. I want to get below 200. I’ve been stuck around this weight for a while and each time I approach 200-205, I go crash on pizza and shoot back up. It’s time to finish this shit once and for all.
Technically, this is not a V-Diet since I’m trying out some of the new stuff I’ve heard Chris talk about, but as far as I know it still has no official protocol. I removed the flax seed and nut butter and 2 servings of MD low-carb in favor of one serving of Metabolic Drive Muscle Growth, 2 servings of FA3, and 4 servings of Carlson’s fish oil. I followed the calories as close as I could according to Dailyburn. I lost some protein and carbs (from the flax seed and nut butter) in exchange for some additional fat. The math doesn’t seem to be right according to dailyburn since the V-Diet calculator says 1590 calories and I ended up with 1610, but if I do the math on the macronutrients from the calculator (240g protein * 4 + 43g fat * 9 + 66g carb * 4), it’s 1611 anyway. I guess the 1590 was just a typo or something.
I’m doing the intermediate lifting program. I bought a power rack for my apartment and I have an AB wheel and assistance straps for high rep pull-ups (versus no lat pulldown), so I can perform the entire workout in my apartment as prescribed.
