Jlats V-Diet Journal


#1

Day 1 - Monday, 9/22
I started the Velocity Diet today. I recently have been following a very low carb diet for about a year now. I was pretty lean back in May, but decided to start putting on some quality mass. However, I ended up just getting fat and also had a couple of minor injuries that set me back.

I’m gonna use the V-Diet to jump start my fat loss and then transition back into packing on some muscle.

I also took 4 fiber choice tabs throughout the day.

My totals for the day:
Cals- 1792
Fat- 49.5

jlats,

Well your diet look intact. How are you feeling? Are you breezing thru your days? How’s lifting going? Strong or weak?

I really hope things are going well for you. The V-Diet is quite a challenge.

Stay strong!

Hey JLats, good luck with the diet. I have a question for you though. It has been so long since I have done overhead squats (I also did them at an age when I probably wasn’t doing many lifts correctly) and I was wondering if you perform them with a wide snatch grip or just a straight press grip? I only ask because they are on the routine I am doing next.

I’m feeling great so far. Although, it’s only the start of day 2. I think I will be alright throughout, because I have a pretty slow metabolism and I can handle such low calories. The workout was great yesterday. The HOT-ROX had me pretty amped up. I actually had trouble falling asleep last night. If it happens again I might go down to just 1 pill in the afternoon.

Honestly, the weekends are going to be the biggest challenge for me. I have had no problem eating perfectly throughout the week in the past. However, I always let loose on the weekends and I end up setting my self back. I’m hoping this diet can help modify this behavior.

go with the wide snatch grip… make sure you start light at first until you get the movement down.


#7

I started on the same day as you so we can make sure we both stay with it. Use the rubber band trick and stay motivated on the weekends. You will see it will be well worth by day 28.

Glad you got some sleep man. I had problems with sleeping on the diet for about two weeks. Hopefully you won’t have to deal with that hassle.

Hey jlts,

I have heard of people mixing their MD into a pudding mixture. How do you do it? It seemed to me when I tried, I got such a small amount it wasn’t worth it. Would appreciate your feed back.

fitnesslady


#13

Well right now it’s not really pudding texture just real thick (eat w/ spoon). I put 6 ice cubes in the blender then MD then just enough water to get the blades moving then 3 more ice cubes blend and then 3 more and blend for a total of 12 cubes. Choc MD w/ mint extract is fantastic.

Pre V-Diet I was making an anabolic pudding… 2 sccops MD, tbsp heavy cream, whole egg, sometime some PB, sometimes some flax. (no ice just mix w/ spoon)It was really good.

You could try this: in bowl… 2 scoops choc MD, 1 tbsp PB, lil bit of water (mix w/ spoon)


#14

Hey thanks jlats for the tips on the pudding. I have heard so many talk about, but my consistancy never comes out to be much. I tried some Redi-Whip with a about teaspoon of Choc MD with a few almonds last night. No carbs, but a few calories and it satified me.

Day 6 - sATURDAY, 9/27
Yesterday was the hardest day by far…finally got sick of the shakes and just felt lousy all day.
8:15 AM 2 HRX
9:00 Shake 1 - Vanilla/bannana Metabolic Drive tsp decaf coffee, 4 g fish oil, zinc, multi-v

Spent the entire day at a college football kickoff BBQ (yeah a couple of weeks late.) Beer, buffalo wings, tri-tip, sausage, chips, bread. Normally, i would probably consume close to 10,000(not over exgerating) cals on a day like this. However, I didn’t cheat at all not even a baby carrot. Although, it wasnt too fun getting asked every 5 mins why i wasnst eating or drinking and being asked why are you on a f-ing diet.

10.4 total pounds lost… I’m thinking about 6 was water/glycogen (i was on very low carb diet before and was down to about 202 when fully depleted… had a couple of cheat meals before I started the V-Diet),

But that means I lost 4.4 of hopefully pure fat which is a ton for 1 week. I’m also under 200 pounds which means i’m officially a twink.

Upper leg L-25/R-24.5 -> L24(1)R23.5(1)
Calf- L-16.7/R-17 -> L16(.7)R16(1)

Neck- 15.5 -> 15.5

8:30 PM Shake 3 - Choc Metabolic Drive w/ 1 tbsp PB, 1 tsp mint extract, cinnamon mixed into ice cream, magnesium
