Well I suppose this thread can count for a blog.
5’8" 178 lbs
38" waist and that’s all I care about at the moment. Haven’t measured BF%.
I’ve lost 56 pounds on the weight scale in the last 2 years. I’ve added some muscle mass too, so fat loss is perhaps 65 pounds or so. I did all this with “common sense” nutrition and later with Berardi’s Precision Nutrition plan. Fortunately, this obvious success is insulating me a bit from would-be v-diet doubters around me.
I don’t know how much I need to lose. I’d just like to not have a bulging gut. I could continue to SLOWLY loose weight over time, but at this point I’m ready to hit it with a sledge hammer and I think the V-Diet is that hammer.
6/22, Sunday, Day 1 - Felt hungry, but not starving. But this isn’t a lifting day and I also didn’t get my NEPA. Busy all day & night. Yeah, I know. I’ll get with it. I promise.
6/23, Monday, Day 2 - Today was a lifting day. Boy that full serving of Surge was great. Thought I’d feel stark raving ravenous all day, but didn’t. Like yesterday, hungry but not starving. Although when feeding time came I was rapidly getting hungrier by the minute. Heading out for 3 mile NEPA right now…
