I’m going to be starting the V-Diet in about a week (whenever my supplies get here). I’m not overweight by any means and I don’t need to lose any weight. However, I want to prove to myself that I can do this. I’m also told that I have great self control of my daily diet, so I want to prove to myself that I actually am.
Another reason that I’m going to do the V-Diet is because I rarely make the time to eat regularly during the week. I’m a college student with a full load (19hrs) and two majors, Chemistry & Math ( & Physics/Spanish minors), along with undergrad research and a Lab TA. So I’m rarely at home, and when I am, I have ~1-2 hours where I’m not studying a day. This Diet will make meal prep SUPER quick and I’ll be sure to get a more balanced nutrition.
I don’t eat poorly now, but I can only eat 2, maybe 3 time a days, and it is generally a 6 egg omelet with cheese and something like milk/cottage cheese/nuts.
I’ve trained consistently since 15 years old, I turn 19 in early March, so I will finish the main 4 weeks pretty much on my birthday. I’ve done sport training (wrestling), then bodybuilding, powerlifting (1 meet) and Olympic lifting (1 meet). I’m also planning on competing in a bodybuilding show in the summer, so this will give me a great time to see how well the V-diet works for me as a contest prep, since I never gain too much excess fat. I’m sitting around 9-10%, and I’ve had a low of 5-6%.
Now that you know much more than you should about me; my training.
I have built my own home gym, thanks to the EliteFTS, CraigsList and HomeDepot. haha
(Here is a link to a video of it; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASXKDqBTOPw )
I’ve done every type of training, and I’m terrible about sticking to one program, though I may have found one for me, during school. I plan on sticking with Dan John’s
One Lift a Day Program" because it has a good emphasis on strength, short workouts and being proficient in all type of compound lifts. I’ll most likely add in some MetCon type workouts to help burn some fat along with the V-Diet.
Thank you to everyone that follows me or just takes a peek.
I’ll be posting some pics and measurements within the next week, or tomorrow, depending on when the supplies arrive.
