Steve's V-Diet Log


#1

Well, after years of not getting serious, it’s time. I just finished a 100 mile bicycle ride with my son. I went from 235lbs to 215lbs in about 1 1/2 months while preparing for the ride. Good thing for me, as we ended up doing 5000ft of climbing total with a couple 12% grades thrown in just for fun.

With that out of the way I start the V-Diet this Monday. I already ordered and got all my stuff, and got the Natural Peanut Butter and Milled Flax Seeds. Of course all the guys at work think I’m nuts, but they are happy that it leaves more doughnuts for them.

I’m hoping that the V-Diet will get me going in the right direction to finding that long lost 6-pack I used to have at 20. I will post up pics and measurements tomorrow. Thanks

Good to have you on board, Steve!

Any questions for me directly, be sure to put them in the Ask Chris thread so I’ll be sure to see them.

All seems good. No problem with energy or sleeping. I’m actually having to set my cell phone to remind me to eat each shake. No headaches or any problems besides a bit of low energy during my workouts. One thing I did was go on a low calorie diet prior to starting the V-Diet in preperation for my bike ride, so I’m guessing this isn’t taxing my system since the total calorie intake is only a couple hundred less than the previous eating plan I was doing. (Wow, talk about a run-on sentence.)
