I’m currently finishing Day 4 of the V-Diet. Some of my best friends have done the diet a few times and I could see the results with them so decided to give it a try. I’ve done several cleanses and other diets but needed something more targeted with results in 1 month. The purpose of the diet is to reduce my body fat from roughly 12% Id guess, to 7%. The reason I have started now is because I have photo shoot deadlines at the end of January.
Start Date: Dec. 18th
Current Weight: 175lbs
Notes: I have had a headache on day 2 and 3. My friends told me to except it. I did my first workout day today, (day 4) and after the workout have another headache. I have been drinking lots of water along with the shakes. I do not particularly care for the shakes, but I’m determined to stick with the program for maximum results. One of the biggest challenges is the no food policy. I do love to eat, and the act of eating is very nice as well. Instead I have taken the second best option and just smell the food when going out with friends.
Its a little bizarre and I end up with a row of single items on a napkin in front of me, but I find it rather enjoyable and you get to realize and take pleasure in things you normally don’t notice when you just eat the food. I have been walking for an hour every day. Ill set the treadmill to 3.5 or 4.0 mph with an incline of 1.0 to 2.5. My heart rate holds a steady 155 walking 4.0mph at 2.0 incline. I have added some additional arm movements to experiment with the walk, so for 15 minutes ill incorporate them and my heart rate accelerates to 170-180.
This is above 80% for my age and weight, but I have always had a fast heart rate, and can sustain 175 for over an hour and I always wear a heart monitor. I’m looking forward to this coming Friday which will be my 1 meal day and I plan on taking a very long time to eat!
