Just stumbled across your thread, man. As others have said, you have a great physique to work with. Just keep making the necessary adjustments and keep your focus. You’re going to look kick-ass once you finish this V-Diet journey.[/quote]
I haven’t posted for a couple of days because I’ve been off from work and had limited access to the internet.
This coming Sunday will be two weeks and I’ll be halfway through the 28 days. My impressions of the diet so far is that it is easy. The first week was tough but this week has been a breeze as far as drinking the shakes and taking the supplements go. So far, and this may change by mid week 3 and 4, I haven’t had to do anything to the protein shakes to “spice” them up. I don’t put ice or any flavors such as coffee in the drinks, I don’t even change the flavors of the protein throughout the day. I use the same flavor until the bottle is empty. Like I said before, my favorite part of the diet is the simplicity and having to blend it in a blender or do anything else to it takes away the simplicity. Now the temptation to eat junk food of course is still there. For example, my brother and his family is visiting for the week from New Mexico and of course there has been a lot of family gatherings with the normal party food. And yes it has been a challenge not to eat, but the fact that I kind of messed up while I was on vacation and realizing that this is a relatively short diet with a very, very slim margin of error has helped me resist any temptations to eat junk food. Again, I love the diet but the real indicator as to how good this diet is will be the results. And I’m keeping a realistic view of the expected results. I know I’ll get leaner but I’m not expecting to get shredded. If I do, great, but if I don’t I won’t be too disappointed. I really want to see how low I can get my body fat based on my visual appearance. I know I should have got a body fat test but I could not find one in my area.
Comparing this to the Get Shredded diet, so far the hungar pangs are definately less on this diet than they are on the Get Shredded diet. I think it’s because you go longer between eating on the Get Shredded diet than on this diet.
As far as chewing sugar free gum while your on this diet, unless you want people holding their breath while you talk to them I’d advise maybe eating a half a stick of sugar free gum and saving this for when your at a social event. Because the combination of an empty stomach and protein makes your breath smell like complete death.
By the way, since I’m a couple days away from the 2 week point I’ll post results pictures on Sunday. Sorry to anyone who’s been waiting for me to post results.
