Ok the V-Diet guide that was thankfully provided says that a key to success is to measure, photograph, and post. I really hate this extroverted crap but I will give it a try.
I started yesterday and I am doing the advanced program. I am also lucky enough to have a great a training partner. He isn’t ready for the diet yet, but he is willing to follow the training plan.
This will be interesting from few different aspects.
I know it will work, I am focused on it, and I have been training for over 7 years now. I tend to be very carb sensitive so the carb cycling aspect will be a good thing. I did low a carb keto diet 8 years ago and went from a fat 185 to a scrawny 155, hit the iron and worked back up to the 180s.
I am a father and a professional who travels a lot. I find myself at nice restaurants, airports, and on car trips several times a month. I have been able to slow this down with the economy the way it is, so this is a perfect V-Diet window.
The guide says to get a hobby, can I count India Pale Ale, Cabernet, and Single Malt as my hobby? Seriously this has gotten out of control for too long. I really enjoy a good drink but with the travel and social situations I have found myself having a drink about 4 nights a week. two to three drinks when out, only makes it easier to have two or three drinks while watching a movie once I get home. Before you know it a bottle of wine, or a six pack of good beer is gone.
I figure I have been taking in anywhere from 2,500 - 4,000 calories a week in wine, beer and whiskey…
Time to stop, another great motivator behind the V-Diet. It will be dry as a desert bone.
Not sure if I did the measurements correctly, but here we go…
