Rjbelly V-Diet Log

Day 11:
A much better day. Not nearly as hungry and the shakes satisfied for longer. Hopefully yesterday was rock bottom. Still feeling strong during workouts. Cant wait for HSM saturday night. Grilled Mahi Mahi here I come!!

day 15:
Half way finished. After my massive hunger attack last week I have been good. HSM this weekend was nice and filled me up. Grilled shrimp, veggies, rice. Strength is still high. Saw little drop in weight this week, but huge drop in waist measurements which is what we want. Feel like the next 2 weeks will be way easier than the 1st 2 weeks.

day 16:
Hunger seems to really at bay now. :slight_smile:
Played in a golf tournament and was able to pack and bring all my shake stuff for the day and consume them without issue (and won the golf tournament).

Day 18:
Moved my HSM up this week since it was my anniversary. Went out to dinner at one of the top restaurants in town. Japanese/sushi place. had some brussel sprouts, raw fish, steak, duck, eggplant, etc. Even had a little dessert since they gave it to us complimentary to celebrate. Great meal. I actually feel a little guilty after these HSM like I am ruining all my hard work. Need to get over this as I know that the meals a necessary.
In the gym I seem to be getting stronger by the day. Hope that stays up.

Nice 15# PR on deadlift today!

Thanks :slight_smile:

Day 19:
Not much to say. Set a PR yesterday on dead lift by 15 lbs. Pretty amazed at the strength gains through this since a lot of people mentioned that they lost strength.

Day 23:
Good solid weekend. Was able to all things I wanted and brought along shake supplies as necessary. Hunger is nothing at this point but the boredom of no food has definitely kicked in.

Lost 3.5 lbs and 1’2"-1" in spots this week.
Down 11 lbs and 3.125" at my widest spot on belly and 1.375" at the belly button. Pretty pleased so far.

I spent 10 minutes lining all the columns up and then it just jumbled all the numbers anyway :slight_smile:

Almost passed out today during workout. Upped the weights so that could be reason. Since I felt like hell I decided to use my week 4 HSM a day or 2 earlier than I had planned.
Flank steak, black beans, yucca, and veggies (spinach, green beans, pea pods, peppers). Skipped the fried plantains and most of the rice.
It was good to go to one of my favorite restaurants and change up from my usual selections and get something that falls within the plan (at least I think it did :slight_smile:
Any comments on the meal are welcomed as I am still learning about eating correctly. Daily HSM start Sunday and I need to be ready with good food choices.

doing good, keep with. I have to agree its hard not to stick to a clean HSM

Nothing really new to report. I will say this though: Not having crappy food in my system seems to make me feel much more alert (who knew :slight_smile: especially in the afternoons when I usually feel like I am going to fall asleep in a meeting. I am actually able to pay attention.

3 more days!!!

Day 27:
2 more days. A little nervous about starting the every day eating. Been trying to do a lot of reading to learn about the right foods to eat so that I don’t screw up the month of work that I just accomplished. I am also happy to say that I have not lost any muscle during this time. Not sure about the size of the muscles but I can say for absolute certainty that I am way stronger now than I was a month ago. I think @drewmoore867 can attest to that.

All complete with my 28 days!! Now on to the transition phase. Here are my 28 day numbers:
11 lbs and over 4" around belly!

On day 4 of the transition period. HSM everyday have been nice. I find myself thinking a lot more about my meals then I used to so that I can ensure that I eat the correct stuff. So far so good. Will post pictures soon. I have them but have not gotten around to uploading them.

Please upload :slight_smile: HSM are sooooooooo nice :slight_smile:
And the cool thing is, clean food taste soooooo good, i just love preparing my meals :slight_smile:

Infected, The pics are on my wife’s computer so I need her help and she is very busy with work right now. I will get them up. Promise.
Starting the 2 HSM a day this week. 1 HSM a day went well. Eating a lot of salad and veggies in my meals. Way more than ever before. I can’t say that I love vegetables now but they have become much more tolerable. So far I have stuck to the ones that I like the best. Green beans, asparagus, spinach, brussel sprouts. Soon I plan to try broccoli which I previously could not stand. Curious to see if taste has changed.

Lost 1.5 lbs in week 1 of HSM and 0.5" on waist.

Looking forward to seeing those pics.
Awesome for the results!! keep it going !

Great job RJBelly! I know of no other diet that can give you an 11 lb weightloss, 4 inches off your waist, and strength goes up in 4 weeks. Motivating!
