I started doing the V-Diet Lite just over a week ago. I think Im on the right track- though any criticism is welcome. When I weighed myself last Monday I was 175#- as of this morning Im 170#. I estimate I need to lose about 10 pounds or so of fat.
A food log for what I eat is being kept at Fitday- http://fitday.com/fitness/PublicJournals.html?Owner=Maulrat
Counting calories is a pain in the ass and not something Ive ever done before- but it has kept me in check.
On a non-workout day I get about 1500 calories- 165g Protein, 65g carbs(25 which is Fiber), 55g fat. A typical day looks like:
7am 2 scoops Low-Carb Metabolic Drive
10am salmon on 1 peice of double fiber bread- 1oz raw almonds
1pm 4oz chicken breast with 2-3 servings of green veggies
4pm turkey breast
5or6 1 scoop MD
8pm 1 scoop of Low-Carb Metabolic Drive with Almond butter.
3 fish oil tablets a day.
(maybe 12oz of black coffee throughout the day)
On workout days I get about 1800 calories.
Post workout: 8oz chocolate milk with halfscoop of Low-Carb Metabolic Drive
For my training I use somewhat of a modified version of what Christian Thibaudeau wrote here http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/destroying_fat_war_room_strategies_to_maximize_fat_loss&cr=
Basically 2 days a week are heavy lifting and 2 days are lactate inducing workouts(higher rep circuits). I haven’t been doing any of the running hes outlined since my calorie intake is low.
Even the lactate workouts by themselves seem a bit too much- Im thinking I need to increase calories on these day as only Circuit burned 350 cal in 20 minutes(according to my heart rate monitor). Or just do less.
Any opinions/suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
