Began my first Velocity-Diet May 22nd, 09.
I’m a wellsite geologist and I am currently doing shift work. Over the last couple years poor eating habits and simply forgetting physical fitness on the rig has me feeling at least 10-15 pounds overweight. Usually I have fairly good training habits when I am home, but all this stopping and starting is not cutting it. Time to cut the excuses. I will, I HAVE TO, make the effort to drive into the nearest town with a gym every other day while in the field, and I will follow the diet to the letter. The start of each shift demands that I be awake straight for 1.5 to 3 days. I might struggle with the gym through this section, but no reason to give up.
Yesterday was my first day with the shakes. I thought I was going to be one-up coming into this because I have always enjoyed my protein shakes with water. Sadly, for whatever reason I am struggling with the flavoring of the Biotest shakes. I can’t get that taste out of my throat.
Also, I felt INCREDIBLY full all day yesterday. To the point of being uncomfortable. Normally I can pack in lots of food, but yesterday was a real struggle. Am I doing something dumb, like the spoon provided in the Biotest bins is actually equivalent to two scoops or something? It’s throwing my head for a loop wondering how the hell I’m supposed to lose weight when I feel like I just went back for seconds and thirds of a turkey dinner.
Pictures and some crude measurements up soon!
