So, I must have a psychic link with T-Nation or something, the day I originally planned to order my remaining V-Diet supplies (been slowly stocking up since December, they declare a huge sale! (lets just hope everything doesn’t sell out on me…)
On with business! My V-Diet will start March 10th, the first day of spring quarter at school (we’re on 'tri-mesters/quarters). one quarter is 10 weeks. It works out great for training and diet plans, perfect even amount of time.
Note- I will post back as time draws closer with pictures, and more specific stats, measurements, etc, ya know the stuff that makes a v-diet log actually useful.
Basic stats as of right now (March 1)-
WEIGHT- Between 203-206ish (down from 213 all time high in December, dropped 10 pounds simply by eating Gourmet nutrition meals and progressively dropping oatmeal for breakfast, cool!)
BODY TYPE- Meso/ectomorph, kinda hard to tell, in high school you’d say “ECTOMRPH!” I was 145-160 pounds at over 6’ tall… skinny fat, eww… I still consider myself ‘thin’ but I exhibit Meso qualities like broader shoulders and thick thighs.
BF% ROUGH estimate- 10%<X<15% somewhere in that range.
Main GOALS and REASONS for V-Diet (aka the fluff)- After being a tall skinny bastard I got up to near 200 pounds 3-4 years ago on the ‘see food diet’ as my nutritional advice and knowledge was severely lacking.
After learning/being referred to T-Nation, I have done a few ‘diets’ every spring to try to get ‘ripped’, but always mess up due to choice, if I have choice in my meals, I overcomplicated things and mess up, results not fast enough and give up.
During the past two years or so I have built a ‘respectable’ body (to the average American), after I discovered powerlifting and went from 185 to 210 in a few months of WS4SB and learning to work hard and lift heavy, forget ‘the pump’ shit. I should say right now, I’m a powerlifter not a bodybuilder. Why V-Diet then?
I want to look how I feel I should look and thats a lean scary mo-fo. I think that Matt Kroc is a great example of what my personal goal would be (I know I’m taller, and naturally thinner, and am drug free (please no drug free vs assisted comments).
So yeah, summary, I am sick of my death handles and pooch, there is no reason to have death handles and a pooch, don’t need, it, hate how it looks, go by by now!
What do I expect?- I think I’ll probably drop to the 180’s on the diet, not sure, not really worried. I plan on competing in the 198 class this fall winter and my ultimate goal is to be in the 220 class at <10% fat. My legs will lean out first, no doubt, all 4 muscles in the quad are totally visible already, WITH vascularity so no worries about getting ‘ripped wheels’, as for everything else, we’ll see…
After the V-Diet and transition- If more fat loss is desired/needed I will continue by using Waterbury’s Summer Project plan; if I am happy with my level of leanness I’ll switch back to WS4SB3 and strait up WS style to prepare for a meet in the fall/winter.
As for diet, I will be getting precision nutrition and utilize that to keep my physique in check while making sure performance excels and gain quality lean mass. After the V-Diet I also plan on experiment with ‘Level 4 Leanness’ and doing a photo shoot with my girlfriends brother who is a photographer (no mirror self portraits for me!)
Remember, pics and measurements will come in ONE WEEK, right before i actually start. Thats it for now, I swear!
