I did my V-Diet in Feb-Mar and after the transition did the 2500-3000 cal high protein small meal thing with pretty good results. I do cardio 2 times a week, lift 3-times, and do at least 4 NEPA walks.
I now take no stimulants, started the creatine thing and am trying to put on some muscle. I plan on doing 1 more v-diet in mid Aug to get the BF down low and curb my cravings for pork rinds latte’s. I also eat out almost every day, but stick to grilled seafood, steamed veggies, and light beer keeping the carbs in check still losing slow and steady.
I love the HOT-ROX but admit that I had to switch protein shakes. I now mix the GNC whey protein complex with a little of the better tasting muscle milk or On. After I ran out of Surge, I just went with chocolate milk mix added to the lo carb protein. I still do 3 shakes a day but now with peanut butter and oatmeal added.
