Shawn's V-Diet Lite Log


#1

This is my second time starting the V-Diet. The first time I tried without all the supplements- dumb move. Failure. As stated by others, whey won’t keep the hunger in check. Also, poorer protein powders with tear up your stomach.

This time, however, I have the supplements and will be following the diet as close to RX as I can. Essentially, I’m just eating one meal a day (just lean meat and lettuce mix to replace a shake) and drinking the other shakes as they are shown. On workout days, eating a greek yogurt as well. I had stomach problems the first time I tried this and with the one meal and the greek yogurt I don’t seem to have any problems. Macro’s are really really close to the numbers given. So 4-5 shakes per day with one superclean evening meal. Not a true V-Diet, but I can stick with this and it’s pretty damn close and should give similar results.

Currently on Day 5 without any problems. I’ll post the starting pics and measurement results half way and at the end of the diet. I will finish up Christmas Eve, which will be a nice gift to myself.

Anyway, weight is in LB

Day 1 244.7
Day 2 241.7
Day 3 240.6
Day 4 238.5
Day 5 239.0

As for working out, I’m on the tail end of Kenneth Jay’s Viking Warrior Conditioning. Plan on hitting my 80 sets in the snatch in the next two weeks. Hit 58 sets with a 25lb KB, 15:15 protocol a couple of days ago. Also doing Pushups, Pullups, Goblet Squats and double long cycle work with 24kg kb’s. NEPA has been consistent as a 3 mile walk. If energy levels drop (which they haven’t so far) I may cut back on some volume. Goal is in site, so I should be ok.

Weighed in 236.4 this morning. Down 8.3 lb.

Day 1 244.7
Day 2 241.7
Day 3 240.6
Day 4 238.5
Day 5 239.0
Day 6 236.4

I’m a type 1 diabetic and blood sugar rose a bit last night. Feel a bit dehydrated so I’ll drink some water down this morning and see how the weight looks tomorrow. I wouldn’t be surprised if it goes back up a pound or two but regardless, this is going well. I will post my NEPA lunch time walk and workout later tonight. Going great so far…


#3

35 minutes of walking in the parking deck up and down floors. Probably about 2 miles.

Actual workout
15 sets of 7 KB snatches with 35lb KB.
10 sets of 5 one arm swings with 35lb KB
5 sets 10 pushups
5 sets 10 goblet squats with 35lb KB
5 sets 20 crunches

Down 8.4 lb this morning. NEPA was shoveling snow today.

Day 1 244.7
Day 2 241.7

Day 7 236.3


#5

Down 8.9 lb this morning. No NEPA but did workout.

Also, first bit of carbs with evening meal. A serving of rice with 8 oz grilled salmon with artichoke hearts. Divine…

Workout
VWC 15:15 protocol with 25lb KB. 64 sets. Will try for the 80 RX on Sunday.
KB swings with 16kg 25,20,15,10,5
Yates Rows with 135lb 8,8,8
Crunches 25,25,25,25

Carbs helped with workout I’m guessing. Nowhere near as bad as last time.

Also, for those who may be trying it for the first time, a tsp of pumpkin pie spice and/or cinnamon in the Vanilla makes all the difference.

Still plugging away although I expect my weight to jump a lb or two just from water and eating some carbs. Back to plain salad with tuna for evening meal in place of shake 5 for the day…

Day 9 Brutally cold outside (-16 right now), so NEPA on indoor bike. 30 min. Added about 1.1lb back after having a bit of carbs yesterday. I know I’ve lost at least an inch on my waist and probably more. Will post pictures on the 14th day. So far, still going well - 236.9 today.

Day 10 Still brutally cold out, so NEPA indoors today for 30 min. 234.3 Today. Crazy, my goal for this diet was to get to 229 and drop about 10-15lb in total. I’m 5lb away from 15lb loss with 18 days left. I used to fight just to lose a couple of pounds.

Still plugging along with 4-5 shakes per day (plus supplements) and one meal of tuna and plain lettuce/greens per day. That meal is making all the difference on sticking with the diet this time.

Day 1 244.7
Day 2 241.7

Day 10 234.3


#8

No NEPA today, had my 15:15 VWC test. 80 sets of 7 in the snatch with a 12kg kb. 40 minutes with 20 minutes of work. Took a few extra carbs in today (an extra yogurt, plus some sloppy joe meat-no bread), but still well within the vdiet lite guidelines. Workout was brutal even with the extra carbs. Back off week now. Still well on my way to meeting my 229 weight and in good shape.

Last brutally cold day for a while. Above zero now and will take walks before work or at lunch. Not surprised weight jumped up a slight bit because of the extra carbs, but I expect it to drop over the next two days with no workout planned. Sore today…

Just curious how your V-Diet attempt went. I was toying with the idea of VWC, but will stick to the program for this first round. Starting next week.
