I’m a runner and triathlete that is looking at completing a cycle of the V-Diet in early 2016. For years, was stuck at 145lbs with a 29-30in waist. In 2014, I decided to see if I could gain some muscle mass, and followed Dan John’s MMS. I was able to put on 12lbs. I have continued to run (Maffetone Method) and am following Pavel’s Power to the People weight program. However, I’m at the point where I need to drop some of the fat I’ve put on. It is negatively affecting my running as my pace times are improving any more. Besides that, my skinny fat look (muscular arm and legs with a belly) makes me look goofy. I’m currently at 160lbs with a 33in waist. I’m also 5’10" and the last caliper reading said 16% body fat.
I just want to make sure since I was a hard gainer at one time that is now skinny fat is approaching the V-Diet correctly. Dan talks highly about this being THE diet. I think it would also help me complete Maffetone’s 14 day sugar detox and curve my sweet tooth habit. I am thinking about adding Indigo-3G if needed to the last 2 weeks of the diet or the 2 weeks after the diet.
