Would this modification ruin the whole point of the diet?
I’m on day 5 of the V-Diet, and I’ve survived so far with no slip-ups. I have been having some problems with it though, that are making me consider a slight modification.
Pretty much, my problem is just really bothersome nausea and stomachaches… I don’t know whether this is psychological, a reaction to the thought of “Oh god not another shake…” in which case I should just suck it up and push onward.
This has persisted for the last few days though, so I’m wondering whether it’s a signal from my body that it just isn’t happy with this diet. I’m REALLY hesitant to make any modifications (although I am NOT using the HOT-ROX), but I have been wondering if maybe adding in a solid meal (with the exact same macro ratio and calorie count) in place of one or two shakes every few days (certainly not every day) and in addition to my regular HSM would be defeating the purpose of the diet?
Mostly, I am asking if sticking to an all-liquid supplement diet is somehow more beneficial to fat loss than if I were to take in the same nutrients and calories every once in a while using, say, a chicken breast, some vegetables, and a bit of olive oil for fat?
Obviously the shakes win when it comes to convenience but I am willing to make the effort to calculate and weigh the replacement meal. Would I be sabotaging my fat loss by doing this?
Thanks, and sorry if this has been asked before - I’m new and overwhelmed…
