Starting the V-Diet today.
46 years old, and I’m having to try all sorts of things to fit into my pants. I can’t tell where my chin is anymore, and I’m tired of looking like an Asian frog.
20 years ago I was force-feeding myself to gain weight, and it seems to have worked. I’ve gotten up to 210 lbs with the following measurements:
Neck - 17
Shoulders - 50
Chest - 44
Hips - 39
Upper arm - 14
Thigh - 24
Calf - 17
Waist - 40, 42, 40
I’ll be following the diet and doing the intermediate workouts. I haven’t been as consistent in the weight room as I wish I was, and my eating patterns need some serious attention.
Started today with 2 scoops of vanilla Metabolic Drive along with collagen and inulin and Superfood. Also green tea to help tide me over. Will be having my lunch time and mid-afternoon shakes, plus Plazma during my workout, and Flameout with each meal.
I’m fortunate enough that I can eat the same thing without getting sick of it, but this diet is going to put that to the test. I plan on eating 8 ounces of lean steak along with broccoli and rice or a baked potato on my training days, and chicken thighs ( can’t stand white meat) and broccoli on non-training days.
Knowing myself, I’m going to have to buckle down and really force myself to stick with it. Taking it one day at a time (and maybe even one shake at a time).
The hard part is the fact that I coach high school, and we have games twice a week, which throws my schedule off a bit. Plus the fact that on game days, the coaches all get together for lunch. So that will also be a test for me, but I look forward to the challenge.
