V-Diet: Round 2


I have already completed the Velocity Diet once, and I’m back for more.

I’m a week and a half into the program. So far, so good. I’ll post my numbers below. I find that this time around I am more hungry than last time, but I’m on a more restricted meal plan than before.

My first V-Diet netted a loss of 26 pounds in six weeks, with a gain of muscle and energy. I found that I was actually full on the shakes and the weight training was challenging, but effective.

Since the first V-Diet I have continued training. I am not following a specific program, but instead doing the basics-- squats, deadlifts, bench press, military press, rows-- and accessory work. I have also continued a lower-carb diet (~100 to 130 grams of carbs per day) with high protein (~200 grams per day). The result of this diet and training: a gain of muscle with a net body weight loss of another 10 pounds.

Due to my schedule, I have determined that mid-January to the end of Februrary is my last chance to redo the Velocity Diet for the next 9 months or more. Since I’m already far more “in shape” than I started last time, I do not expect such dramatic weight loss, but I know this works. So, let’s get going.
