Chris, I’m just writing to thank you for the Velocity diet. I finished the two week last phase about a month ago and I dropped a total of 22 pounds during the diet. When I started, almost everyone I told said either “That’s crazy!” or “They’re just trying to sell you a bunch of protein powder” or some combination of the two. Well, now (V Diet + one month) I’m 30 lbs lighter, Ive lost 4 inches off my waist and my sleep apnea is gone.
The physical changes are great but there are more important longer lasting effects. My taste for vegetables really did dramatically increase. I used to eat the main course and frequently skip the sides. Now, I enjoy the veggies as much as the meat. For me, that’s crazy. Most importantly, for the first time in my adult life, I feel like I’ve gotten portion size under control. I used to have to eat a lot to feel full. Now, my wife and I are both constantly surprised by how little it takes for me to be satisfied.
When we went out to eat it was always: appetizer, entree and desert. Now, its just the entree, and suddenly I’m Mr. doggie bag. I literally can not remember asking for a container to bring leftovers home before this diet. So, now that my taste for better food has improved I am getting full with a reasonable volume, its not hard to continue loosing at a sustainable pace without being hungry.
So, thanks for the diet, and thanks for the support. It changed, and continues to change my life.
