Who I am: 39 y/o male that works out regularly and has for several years. 5 years ago I weighed 300 pounds when this journey started. My weight loss has been stagnant for a couple of years and this summer I had some health issues (kidney stones) that limited my activity so the weight started creeping back up. The V-Diet was my solution to provide the wake up call that I needed.
Starting weight: 268.5
Ending weight: 250.0
Results: lost 18.5 pounds and 3 inches around the middle. I dropped a pants size, so that’s pretty significant.
To be honest I was hoping to make it into the 240’s, but I am still satisfied with the results. I may do it again, as 225 is my eventual goal, and the strictness of the v diet was pretty helpful. The first 3 weeks of the diet were so hard that it will be a while before I do it again.
I plan to continue the diet with low carbs and lots of veggies to see if I can continue to lose on my own. I have never been able to lose weight on low carb before because I felt so rotten that I couldn’t stick to it, but the 4th week of the V-Diet was actually much better. My body is adapting to lower carbs finally so I plan to continue with it.
