Alright, first day on velocity diet. Im 5’5 1/2’’ and weigh 130 llbs. I have a 25.5 waist, 36 bust, and 38.5 hips. Yeah, big booty. So I decided to try the velocty diet to kind of kick start me in the right direction. I use to work out 5 days a week circuit training (have you guys heard of mountain/military athlete?) eating only complex carbs, lean meats, nuts, fruit, vegetables, and occasionally a greek yogurt. That was a year ago. I kinda got lazy and started back up again about a month ago but things just werent moving fast enough sooooooo…here I am. BUT…the little calculating thingy put me on a 1200 calorie plan for non-work out days and I am literally starving. Like starving. I dont think this is normal?
I have very good self control and thought this diet would be cake (stupid I know, LOL). Its not the cravings or the shake based diet thats getting me, its the hunger pains. Intense ones.
p.s. I’ve always had an easy time keeping my weight down. My caloric intake is usually around 2200 to maintain my current weight (healthy food calories). I was the chick that could pig out on potatoe chips (like the whole bag, one a day) and not gain weight -> i.e. my metabolism is insane.
Anyways, back to the original question. Should I be so hungry I want to kill someone?! Thaaaaat doesnt sound quite like the rest of you. What I mean is, should I be concerned that im not getting enough calories?
