So my brother tried the V-Diet and couldn’t handle the shakes. They actually made him sick, i.e. he couldn’t keep them down. Instead of waisting all his supplies he is selling them to me at a discounted rate. Lucky me.
I did the V-Diet about 2 years ago and lost about 20lbs and mostly kept it off. But at that time I was in college and had gym access. I have continued to try and eat healthy and have lost more weight by that routine and my job as a construction laborer.
My goals are slightly different than most on here I suspect. For now I need to lose the fat and get my running/pushups/situps in order to pass physical tests for law enforcement job, or military.
I started at 280lbs the first V-Diet at 5’10". Now I am 205lbs, So I have come a long way.
But I need to make a 1.5 mile run in under 12 minutes, and be able to do the pushups and situps.
So is it acceptable to do my timed 1.5 mile run 4 times a week supplemented by situps/ pushups/ pullups for a workout? Mile 1.5 is about 13:30 right now.
