I know this isn’t a common problem but I’m curious if other V-Dieters had succeeded under similar circumstances. I work a generally seasonal job (60-80hrs a week in season and 6-8 hrs a week out of season) and I am essentially on a vacation until August. The first two V-Diets I did were very successful in part because I was very busy with work at the time and my general non-exercise physical activity was high. The third round was not as successful likely because I was between jobs at the time and doing nothing but the V-Diet related exercise. So I am facing the same issue currently with my fourth round of the V-Diet.
I understand that too much exercise is bad on the V-Diet and the energy hasn’t always been there to do too much extra (though I don’t know how I’ll feel on this latest incarnation that includes daily HSM), but I feel I will need to do more than the daily walking (I walked 60 minutes straight every day for the previous diets) and the 3 workouts & 1 BW challenge to make up for low daily NEPA.
Any one have an oppinion? I was thinking that I would perhaps just do the first week or so as normal and see, then if I want to add more activity (swimming/longer walking) then maybe just modify the shakes.
