24 lbs lost during v diet (65 lbs lost total)
5.5 inches lost around waist.
I am pretty happy with this, I had been stalled out on my diet for many many months and this was definitely the jumpstart i needed. I still, of course, have a long ways to go. Based on my body fat calculations I lost 18 lbs of fat, and the remaining 6 lbs was hopefully mostly water.
Made two alterations to the vdiet:
took 35 gms of fiber daily from psyllium and flax on the advice of my doctor to help lower ldl’s.
Flameout was out of stock so I took 15ml of carlson daily
I used the formula for obese people to calculate my caloric needs.
i have to take a physical in 5 weeks and it is to my advantage if I can lose atleast an additional 11 lbs. I need to ensure that my cholesterol, liver, and kidney tests look good as well. From my reading here it looks like a transition to a very low carb diet like the AD would probably be the safest route to achieve this goal.
But, I just thought I would ask if I missed something and there is a better route i should take?
