Hey, I just received my Velocity Diet package in the mail today. I was planning on starting it tomorrow. However, according to the website, I consume a measly 1380 calories on a non-training day, and 1,710 calories on a training day. WTF?
I am/was currently consuming 3k daily, and around 3,500 on training days. My current breakfast is 16 oz. of whole milk, mixed with 2 scoops of Muscle Milk - 660 calories - half of an entire non-training day’s worth!
I am 5’6.5", and weigh 160 lbs. I got DEXA scanned(the most accurate), and it told me I was 26% bodyfat. I had started out at 135 lbs, skinny-fat w/ man boobs and a gut, but twigs for arms and chicken legs, and zero lifting experience. Did Starting Strength, ate mostly Paleo but with 1/2 GOMAD.
My current lifts are: Squat 235x3x5, Bench 150x3x5, Deadlift 355x1x3 (no, not a typo), Press 110x3x5, power clean 140x2. However, my pesky gut and moobs did not go away, and have only gotten larger (obviously because I was focused on just bulking).
I have no intention of ever bodybuilding, and my lifts have been going up, but this fat is starting to get to me a bit too much Now, I want to get rid of my fat once and for all, before I get back on linear progression and start eating disgusting amounts of meat and milk again.
With that said, I guess all I’m looking for is clarification/reassurance to put my mind at easy, on why 1380/1710 calories is enough food for me to survive, let alone prevent my lifts from regressing. Will my lifts stall/regress? This is my biggest worry.
