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.
