So I have been reading the T-Nation Articles for a while, and finally stumbled upon the Velocity Diet Forums. I tend to ignore forums, but being written by Shugart I felt they would have some consistency behind them.
The V-Diet sounds like a great plan, but I am having a difficult time figuring out a few of the steps.
- I am 5’5" and weigh in at 182 pounds. According to my doctor and his BMI chart I should weigh around 145 pounds to be “healthy”. Using this thinking I calculated myself on the V-Diet “I need to lose over 35 Pounds” calculator and came up with
Off-Day: 1094.6 Calories per day
Lifting Day: 1312.992 Calories Per Day
I am not an engineer or anything, but I am pretty sure that would cause me to die. I suppose my main question for number one is what is a reasonable amount of weight to lose for someone of my size. If you need more information tell me and I can post it.
- The supplementation is very easy to follow, but according to my aforementioned plan I would only be using one scoop per shake. Does this make any sense?
I have read the entire article posted by Shugart, so I just need a little help so that I can get myself started on this program. I would hate to enter a program with very limited knowledge, so if anyone has some spare time to answer my questions it would be much appreciated.
