Day 1 of my Velocity Diet.
A bit about myself. Started out as a fat kid, grew into a fat teenager, and spent most of college as a fat student. Cleaned up my act starting in the summer of 2009 at 300 lbs (6’4") before my senior year of college. At graduation, I was 220. This was the result of fairly consistent clean eating and consistent weightlifting. Started a new job last June, got off track a little bit. Haven’t gained it all back, but started today at 235. Tried going back to my old diet about a month ago and have found that it just doesn’t generate the results that it used to given my current weight.
I want to use the V-Diet as a way to jump start my final push towards a healthy weight. I know how to eat and exercise at maintenance but am willing to follow someone else’s wisdom when it comes to a focused period of fatloss.
For the workouts I am planning on sticking with 5/3/1. I can be talked out of it I suppose, but strength is my number one goal and I would really like to finish my current wave and start my next one. Realize that strength may take a hit with the diet, but I am just getting back to the weights I used to lift at this time last year.
I will post starting pictures tonight. Will try to keep up with posting in this thread.
