I’m 26 years old. I currently weight 175 pounds. I weighed 145-150 all through high school and up until 2007. I know for a fact that I haven’t put on much muscle since then. That’s a lot of fat. Not as much as others, but still a ridiculous amount to me. I prefer it to be muscle. I keep envisioning thirty pounds of fat in a lump on the floor. It makes me sick to think I’m carrying said lump around.
I get stuck in analysis paralysis. Hardcore. I’ve basically been stuck in it for the past four years. If I actually locked down and put into action all I’ve learned while lurking on T-Nation the last four years, I’d be in top-notch shape.
But wait… Should I cut first? Should I bulk? What diet should I follow? High carbs, low carbs, no carbs? Is grass fed beef really worth it? Alright, so heavy load and low reps. Got it. Hmm, or maybe medium load and higher reps? Wait, what diet should I go with again? Etc, etc, ad infinitum.
I’m starting the V-Diet shortly. I’ll be ordering everything I need come the 15th of June.
Is the V-Diet the best choice for me at the moment? Should I really be bulking first? Should I do this or do that or maybe this other plan?
I don’t care. Indecision is my biggest enemy. It always has been and I’ve had enough of it. I’ve taken a decision; one that I’ve set myself up to follow through 110% of the way. The structured, ironclad rules laid out by the V-Diet will be immensely helpful to me. Everything has been decided for me, and that’s the stepping stone I need. That, at least, should get the ball rolling.
So yeah, I guess the V-Diet is the best choice for me at the moment.
