I saw some arguments over the usefulness of V-Diet on the T-cell Alpha forum, and honestly, although I didn’t experience much of taste changes, it still works BIG TIME! I’m personally using the V-Diet and is on the 25th day. What Shugs said about the diet, some true, some not so true(but I don’t deny it could work for some people).
Honestly speaking, I feel that this diet is in no way EASY. (There’s a huge difference between EASY and SIMPLE.) But my personal observations is that this diet does instill the much needed discipline that many people need to undergo good body transformation. Heck, even CT is using it TO GET SOME DISCIPLINE back! There must surely be some truth to the usefulness of this diet then, isn’t it?
For instance, I had some mad cravings for some curry-flavoured chicken(an asian cuisine that’s not exactly healthy) last night, BUT I figured that the discipline I’ve gained from drinking the same drink for the past 24 days helped me tough it out and not go get the cheat food.(How in world could resisting cravings and hunger ever be easy?! Man…)
As for the taste changes, I think what GetSwole said is true, that I am just craving for real foods so badly that I want veggies. (Not that I will no longer want cheat foods like fries or pizzas. Sad, but it’s true.) Of course this has worked for some people(ie. Gus), but this definitely doesn’t work for EVERYONE.
Maybe the upcoming V-Diet book would teach more about proper nutrition, kudos to it. Hell lot of people need that, not just for body transformation purposes, but health-wise as well. And I’m sure Shugs will do well on that department.
Despite not enjoying the taste changes as Shugs mentioned, THIS DIET STILL WORKED BIG TIME! I had lost 4inches off my belly so far from 37in to 33in, and lost 13.2lbs.(I started at around 18% at 178lbs. I know that’s light, but I figured I should cut to below 10% BF before I start gaining mass, and I had 2 yrs of training experience, going from 145lbs to 178lbs.) I never had this kind of results, probably cause I don’t have the discipline to tough out any real diets. So this diet worked wonders, firstly, in achieving RAPID results, secondly, in instilling the much needed discipline, and lastly, the EYES OF MORE HOT GIRLS! LOL.
All in all, I find this diet works cause it instills discipline into people, helping them to take control of their diets (portions, food selections, etc), and not exactly taste changes for SOME out there. And looking at the past successes, I think Shugs deserves credit for coming up with this wonderful diet. Thanks Shugs!
