Hey, I started the V-Diet 28 days ago and just finished it up. Here’s my summary:
Weight and Measurements
Lost 13 pounds
Lost 1 in. off Neck
Lost 3.5 in. off Navel
Lost 2 in. off Torso/Mid-section
Lost 2 in. off Hips
Lost 1 in. off Thighs
Gained 1 in. on Shoulders
All other measurements stayed the same (chest, arms, calves, ankles).
Bench Press 1RM increased from 185 to 205
Squat 1RM increased from 285 to 330
Deadlift 1RM increased from 330 to 401
Some thoughts/feedback on the V-Diet:
Day 1 was easy … Day 8 was insanely hard (day after the first HSM). Be ready for it.
Make sure you get a nut butter with salt in it. I made the mistake of getting a nut butter without salt and the cravings by day 4 were INSANE.
I loved all the shakes except the ones that had Superfood and Flax Seed in them. I didn’t really care for the taste of the Superfood and the Flax Seed just added this grit to the shakes that I didn’t care for even when blended. If I could take my fiber in pill form, I would have enjoyed the morning and evening shakes much more.
Vanilla was my least favorite flavor. I would have killed for some citrus flavors. I resorted to a piece of citrus, sugar-free gum when I had the cravings.
Your sweat may smell like ammonia because of the low-carbs and abundance of amino-acids. Drinking more water will help.
Surge is ridiculously sweet. I feel like I would have preferred a lemon-lime, or orange flavor over raspberry. I didn’t think it tasted much like raspberry at all.
Fitting into a pair of shorts you haven’t been able to wear for 4 years is TOTALLY WORTH IT! Stick to the program and persevere! You can do it!
