Alright - sounds good, I’ll bring my shakes with me and have ac ouple a day and look for the healthier stuff - I’m prob gonna continue low cals (1800-2000) per day right when i get back for a couple weeks and do one more cycle of the vdiet - at the end of the day, i think i’ll be OK but i’ll work at finding the best balance
on a side note - doing this diet has made me very skeptical of the “lost/gained 1-2 lbs” comments. I remember one night b4 my weigh in i was just pacing around my room talking on the phone and just kinda jumped on the scale and saw 195 - i woke up the next morning - took a piss and weighed myself naked and i was 191…also, if you look at my blog - the last weigh in changed from 191.6 to 189.2 after going to the bathroom) so when i hear people and yo yo dieters say things like “i’ve already lost .5 a pound” I’m just like yea? go take a piss - you’ll prob drop another
anyway - that’s my rant…thanks again [/quote]
And that is why you weigh yourself first thing in the morning after you pee
But in all, it’s not about how much you weigh; it’s about how you look and feel. If you go straight into whole meals, chances are your body will feel like shit since it’s used to a liquid diet.
I actually wouldn’t recommend going low-cal and doing the V-diet again. To me, low-cal means below maintenance, and doing that for an extended period of time (2 V-diets + a few weeks of low-cal dieting) is dangerous in the sense that your metabolism will shut down. Rather, I’d ramp up the calories a bit (maintenance) and then get back on the V-diet. If the extra calories bother you, just add in some HIIT (sprints, 400m runs, etc.).
Have fun on the cruise!
