I started the Velocity Diet a few days ago and am just getting started on a public log. The first few days felt rough, and reading some of the posts on here (particularly Day 3) helped re-inspire me through that day, convinced me to post on this.
I had also been trying the Velocity Diet Lite and not getting results I had hoped for. I likewise in the past have been able to be more disciplined with more drastic choices than with moderation, so Chris’ bit about needing to do drastic things to get results spoke to me and convince me.
I debated with doing this program for some time (hence the Lite attempt) for a variety of reasons. The primary one being I do not have as much lean muscle mass that I would like, some motivation from both friends and myself is to “you’re small, get bigger.” However, the sloppy weight gaining I have been doing over the last led to my discipline slipping. I know a leaner body will likewise remotivate me more than a little bit more muscle under layers and layers of fat was, and will soon have a more disciplined pursuit of this post-Velocity.
Secondly, I have a history with anorexia, and need to keep those mental tendencies in check. I am not at all into sob stories. I mention it merely for the context for you all to know, both psychologically and metabolically what is the background. This has also provided a challenge when people who know my history learned I was on this program, and become concerned (well-intentioned) when they have heard about this program.
I will post this evening with a summary of the first few days.
