"The Velocity Diet has two main purposes:
As the name implies, the Velocity Diet leads to a rapid loss of body fat, anywhere from 10 to 20 pounds in 28 days is common. It does this without the loss of muscle mass.
The V-Diet also triggers a permanent change is tastes, cravings, and negative food-related behaviors. Most V-Dieters report a loss of desire for junk foods, fast foods, overly sugary foods, and fried foods, while at the same time developing a newfound love for healthier foods like vegetables. They also develop a new sense of dietary control."
The first point I am ok with however it’s the 2nd issue coupled with peanut butter that I take issue with personally. In my current state, non V Dieting, peanut butter is “there”. Maybe I’ll have it once every two days etc but sometimes I’ll just flip out and eat loads. I would class this as a “negative food-related behavior”. As peanut butter is already on palate it is something I would like to change so I don’t have the problems which is what one of the aims of the V-Diet is.
This leads me onto to the question of whether on the V-Diet I should:
A) Seperate out the portions of PB at the start of the week and keep the jar out of sight/mind
B) Use an alternative like Almond or Hazelnut Butter or Nut oil (eg walnut oil)
