Last night I placed my order for V-Diet supplies. I am planning to start on August 16th. I’ve toyed with the idea of doing the V-Diet for the past year or so but always come up with an excuse.
I’m one of the formerly fat kids. At 25 years old standing 6’1" I was my heaviest weighing in just over 300 lbs. Between 2006 and 2008 I lost 125 lbs and got down to 178. I used some insanely strict caloric maximums (1200 per day) to achieve this and combined it with some heavy cardio as my endurance increased.
Losing so much weight left me looking like a concentration camp victim since I don’t think I had ever lifted a weight in my life. I spent the next year learning how to lift and experimenting with some different techniques and got my weight up in to the 190’s. About a year ago I lost a lot of motivation and pretty much stopped working out in favor of eating junk and drinking a lot of beer. Thankfully I’ve got that under control.
I’m going to use the V-Diet to hopefully shed 10-15 pounds of fat and get me back to 180 and then work on building some mass from there.
I know I’m capable of some pretty extreme willpower when necessary but it’s been a while since I’ve had a fire lit underneath me and I’m worried I won’t be able to keep with this thing for 28 days but I’m hoping to prove myself wrong.
I will be following the intermediate program because I am comfortable with Chad’s workouts.
I’ll post some before photos and measurements this weekend as I’m getting ready to give this a whirl.
