Well today was day one of my second V-Diet. I did my first one back at the beginning of June into July and went from 205 down to 185 while increasing most of my lifts at the same time (I hadn’t done weight training for probably a year when I started it, I attribute my gains in strength mostly to that). I finished the diet feeling and looking better than I ever had before, but I just wasn’t quite where I wanted to get.
The taste and craving changes were great, I ate very clean and tried some different peri workout nutrition stuff leaning towards building a bit of muscle, which I feel like I succeeded at to a degree. I was scared to death of eating too much, but I do feel like I’ve made some good gains in the past 6 weeks since the first diet.
Anyway, I’m now ready to go at it again and quite excited. The anger that fueled my first diet has been replaced with a feeling that I have a hard time describing, something of an intense, calm, confidence. I know I can rock this diet this time, there’s no doubt in my mind, no reservations whatsoever. I plan on keeping my log on here this time and would welcome any feedback/advice.
I’m doing the intermediate workout program and did my first workout today.

Bodyfat: The scale I have at the house has consistently registered 13 - 15% for what it’s worth, not sure how accurate these things are. I was at about 25% before the first diet, that was by a caliper test that was free at my gym, I’ll probably get that done again after this diet.
Pictures Incoming shortly.
