I just started the V-Diet yesterday, Monday 03.15.2010.
I am a 35 year old, 6.0’ tall male, work as an Oracle DBA and pretty much sit on my butt all-day long. I have been on and off weight training since I was 19 years old, but haven’t actually accomplished great muscle gains. I gain weight quite easily, specially if I intake lots of carbs.
9 years ago, I managed to lose 50 lbs in about 5 months basically just weight training and a little cardio everyday. Since then I’ve tried many diets/plans so far, (Atkins, South Beach, Herbalife, Men’s health Testosterone Advantage, Breaking the Fat Loss Code, etc…) which have all given me great results, that is, when I’m disciplined (most of the time I’m not).
Losing weight is always one of my New Year’s resolution, but this year 'round I decided I would really commit to it, thus I call it: My Personal Fitness Revolution.
My first day wasn’t bad at all. After going over several diets before, I was afraid of feeling too hungry. Not the case here! I can say I’ve felt full all-day-long! Shakes are great! I actually enjoy the Flax Seeds! (I’ve read most people don’t). I took on the intermediate-level workout early morning yesterday, and had a 50 minute NEPA walk in the evening.
I took measurements on Sunday morning. I’ll post these later on today as well as my before pics (which I’m hesitant to do, but will do anyways).
Only side effect so far is that I woke up with a strong headache today. I controlled it with Excedrin Migraine. I guess my body’s adapting…
