Hello fellow V-Dieters,
I’m James and started the V-Diet on Tuesday. I was traveling on Monday. I skipped the Monday workout but will do the Wednesday one today. I’m pretty surprised about how NOT hungry I feel.
Let’s see, I’m 40 yo and have been lifting pretty consistently for about 3 years up until the week of Thanksgiving 2008. I tore my Rhomboid, which ended up pinching a nerve. I have been in physical therapy for weakness, numbness and tingling in my left arm for several weeks now and it’s a whole lot better.
I took “before” pics last night and weighed myself. Here are my stats as of yesterday evening (I’ll do the measurements tonight) and post my pics.
Weight: 198.6 lbs
% BF: 18.5
I’ve definitely been leaner and during my time off due to the injury I have continued to do lower body workouts and some light upper body workouts. I’m a little worried about aggravating my rhomboid but I’m going for it anyway. The main issue I have with this diet is not drinking. I eat pretty clean most of the time…just drink wine and vodka too much. Not a total alci but I have some drinks on the weekend. I’m not going to drink!
I’m doing this diet because I’ve done pretty well with gaining LBM. My normal body weight is about 160 lbs. But I’ve never really been able to get as lean as I’d like. So, here goes!
