Got back from a 3 week work/vacation trip and logged on to T-Nation. There was the new V-Diet. I had done the earlier one with success and liked the more complete program with extra bits and pieces. So I jumped straight in. I started on Monday 23rd February. I have been very busy catching up with work so this is my first post.
I am on day 9 and all is well. Too well, I think. No real hunger issues at all which is good. A couple of times I have felt hungry but a drink of water fixed that so I guess it was mostly dehydration. (Very hot down here in the southern hemisphere in mid summer.) I normally drink 5 liters per day and the shakes are putting at least 2.5 liters in me every day which is also good.
No real cravings. I think this has been easier than the first diet as my lead up diet was much better. Low carb up to leaving for the trip then sensible eating for 3 weeks. OK, maybe a bit of ice cream the weekend I got back but basically not jumping into this from a McDonalds lifestyle and I think that is a factor in making it easier for me and harder for others coming off a crap diet. And lets face it, 90% of the people in your gym are on crap diets or “know I should be eating different”.
Next post will be on the exercise program.
