Hi, I’m now in the third week of the V-Diet and all I can say is wow!
Dramatic weight lost. Results so far: 13-14% body fat down to 10-11%. Thank you for creating a simple easy to follow fat-shredding-muscle-retaining diet. Nice one.
Any way I’ve been thinking about how I’m going to progress with my nutrition after the V-Diet and have been doing some research in my quest. I’m currently reading ‘cheat to lose’ by Joel Marion. Few questions for anyone who is familiar with both diets and willing to humour me:
Insulin levels- are they low after the v diet (I’ve been taking 1 serving of Surge 3 times weekly split during/after workouts)
Has my metabolism been ‘damaged’ by the calorie restriction and low carbs?
Has some of the weight loss been glycogen and water weight like other low carb diets?
Any negative impacts on leptin?
Is there a calculation for total daily calories for after the V-Diet? (Cheat to lose suggests using your hands and eye balling to measure serving size, seems like a lot of room for error?)
Can a V-Dieter start the cheat to lose in a different phase? Or is the priming phase still required…
