V-Diet Via-Dizzle


#1

This is my V-Diet log:

I. Start day: 2/26/08

II. End day: 3/23/08 (not including transition phase)

III. Training: For now, the same program Waterbury originally put Gus on.

IV. Starting Weight: 186#

V. Target Weight: 170#

VI. Goals: 1) obviously to lose 16 lbs
2) to stick to the diet 100%
3) retain all my muscle
4) get a freakin tan already. jeez.

VII. Reasons: As I told someone in a PM the other day, “I’m on the V-Diet because I don’t feel like dieting strictly and training super hard for three months. I’d rather get lean enough in 28 days so I can start training to fight ASAP and let the MMA take my body to where it needs to be without counting every calorie. It will also allow me to train for strength instead of a BF% after I’m done with it.”

Basically, when I go home for the summer I’m going to be training MMA again (I haven’t been training for 2 years due to a knee injury) and I want to be lean and in shape again. I’ve been bulking for a few months and I’m ready to get rid of my excess fat. After the V-Diet is over, I will continue to diet, but much much slower and I will train to maintain my strength or hopefully increase it.

I’m doing the V-Diet so I can be lean and in shape ASAP and start training immediately.

VIII. Calories: -Calculated to 1388.1 on off days, but I’ll be taking in 1385.
-Calculated to 1665.72 on Lift days, but I’ll be taking in 1680. My extra calories on these days come from Surge, and I also take out one serving of Flax and add a Teaspoon of Natty PB to make the calories as even as possible.

I’m essentially following the same program as Gus was orignally, except I have lower calories. I’m using the same supps, the same shake timing (including flax and PB placement), and I’m having my HSM on Sundays.

It’s been a challeneg so far, especially the weight training, but I’m following everything to the T regardless. I’ll get some pics up soon when I can borrow someone’s camera, and I’ll start posting my daily log starting tomorrow. I have a nice big fat steak with a side of string beens and strawberries for dessert lined up for lunch, and I can’t wait!

EDIT: I fixed everything so it doesn’t look like shit.

Good luck dizz, look forward to reading about your progress!


#3

Sorry for the last post, I had a bunch of indentations and stuff when I was writing it but they didn’t come out right. It looks like shit, but I SWEAR it looked good when I wrote it ;]

Anyway, I have nothing to do for a little while so I figured what the hell, I might as well post my schedule from today:

9am: woke up, 2 HRX + 3 BCAA
10am: shake 1
11am: FiberOne
12pm: Shake 2 (with 1 serving Flax Meal & 4 Fish Oil caps)
2pm: 1/2 shake 3
3pm: FiberOne
4pm: 2 HRX + 3 BCAA
5pm: 1/2 shake 3
7:30pm: 3 BCAA
7:50pm: shake 4
10:45pm: 3 BCAA
11:05pm: shake 5 (flax, 3 Flameout, 2 tsp NattyPB)

I didn’t get my NEPA walk in today because of certain circumstances, but I had a pretty streneous day at work (I’m a waiter) so I don’t feel THAT bad about it. I don’t feel good about it, I’m not trying to rationalize, and I didn’t skip it on purpose because of my day at work, but I figured the world isn’t coming to an end because I dind’t walk for 30-60 mins straight.

The days are getting easier, and it’s only my first week. I’ve never wanted a steak so bad in my life, though. I’ve got a 16.8 oz steak, a bag of green beans, and a small carton of strawberries waitin for me tomorrow.

I’m gunna grill the steak medium-rare with just salt and pepper so I can really taste it, sautee the green beans with some chopped garlic, and have the strawberries for dessert. I don’t have any carbs lined up for the meal, and it’s most likely going to be later in the day rather than sooner, so no big deal. I’ll most likely have to have it as my second to last meal of the day because of work.

I’m looking forward to looking real good at the end of this. I know that I’m not suffering for no reason! I’m going to give it 100% and hit this thing head on.

Just a few more thoughts before I get out of here:

  1. I work at a Sushi Buffet with amazing sushi and amazing cooked food, and I feel like I’m going through the worst part of the diet every single time I’m there. I haven’t touched a thing so far, although I want some teryaki chicken and beef over brown rice with steamed veggies sooo bad.

  2. I was watching the fights tonight, and all my friends ordered chinese and had chips and all that stuff. The junk food didn’t make me hungry but the smell of the chinese food was erotic.

  3. If the pictures that Shugs puts on his threads are food porn, then going for a walk through Whole Foods is like a food peep show. My lord.

4)[rant]It can’t be just me, but does anyone else feel like it’s perfectly fine for people in this country to get made fun of for being healthy and/or smart? I’m fucking tired of it. “Oh you drink protein shakes? What are you like some kind of health nut or something?” Like it makes me a bad person. I don’t know about you guys, but whenever someone says that to me, I go out of my way to make them feel like fat pieces of shit in front of everyone who heard them put me on blast (because it’s only the fatties who say that shit). [/rant]

Don’t worry about what other people say/think of you. They are just trying to hold you back, because they themselves aren’t committed to getting in shape, so they will try to pull everyone they can down with them. As long as you are happy with what you are doing, that’s all that matters. Let the fat person eat their cupcakes; you drink your protein shake and realize you are one step closer to your physique goals, while they are one step closer to a heart attack, God forbid.


#6

Thanks for the words, tmoney. I don’t let it get to me in the sense that it brings me down, I just can’t believe the level that people go to just to make themselves feel better about how weak they are mentally and physically.

Fat guy: "Why the hell do you need to drink only protein shakes? That sounds ridiculous, just diet normally."
Lean guy: “Why don’t you worry about how your fat gut jiggles when you brush your teeth and not about what I eat.” [/rant2]

Anyway, it was solid meal day today! woooo! I have to say, I only ate a steak, green beans, and a handful of strawberries, but I feel like I’m cheating on the diet! After I ate the meal, I felt like I normally do whenever I have a huge bag PB cups or a big jug of ice cream (which rarely happens anyway to be honest, but still). It felt really weird, I did eat a lot, though.

3/3/08:
9am: HRX + BCAA & NEPA
10am: Shake 1
11am: FiberOne
12:15pm: Shake 2
2pm: BCAA
2:20pm: 1/2 Shake 3 (1/2 serving flax, 1 Flameout)
3pm: FiberOne
4pm: HRX + BCAA
5:20pm: 1/2 Shake 3 (1/2 serving flax)
8:30pm: 16.8 oz steak, 1 lb. green beans, handful of strawberries
12am: Shake 5 (1/2 flax, 2 Flameout, 4 fishoil)

I for sure won’t be eating that much for my HSM next week. I think I went overboard; although I’m 1/2 glad I did because now I feel like it’ll hold off cravings for another one for atleast a few days, hopefully until the weekend.

Like I said, I’m a waiter so it’s hard to get all my shakes in at the exact time I schedule them for, but having to readjust by like 15 or 20 minutes is really no big deal.

For the HSM, I seasoned the steak with salt&pepper and pan-seared it because some jackass stole our grill (=[), and I sauteed the green beans with a bit of extra virgin olive oil, shallots, and garlic. Oh man was that good stuff. I was ready for a NEPA walk immediately afterwards, though =P

Tomorrow is training day and I look forward to busting my ass in the gym, but I definately do not look forward to those side planks. Good lord those things are torture. Still no camera, but I’ll get a hold of one soon I swear.

My bad for the double post, but this gives me another opportunity to throw in some stuff I missed:

  1. Just so the thousands of people following this log know, all my shakes have 2 scoops of LC Metabolic Drive in them.

  2. All my doses of HRX are 2 caps, and all my doses of BCAA are 4 caps.

  3. All my doses of Flameout are 3 caps, and all doses of fish oil are 4 caps.

  4. My last shake of the day only had 1 scoop of Metabolic Drive today, and I didn’t have any PB.

I think that’s it.

-dizzle


#8

I think I lied when I said that steak would hold me over until the middle of the week, I really want another solid food meal, specifically some of my mom’s home cooking.

Anyway, this is the last day of my first week on the V-Diet and I’m happy to say that I’ve stuck with it 100%. At this point, I literally feel like I’m cheating on the diet when I have a TBSP of Natty PB. Wow.

I moved my training days so that day 1 starts on Wednesday (because I started the diet last tuesday and had no time to lift on tuesday), day 2 is Friday, and day 3 is Monday. I’m hoping this is ok since I’ll still have three consecutive days of lifting in a row. I figure that since I’m training real hard and sticking with Chad’s guidlines to the absolute best of my ability, the days the specific exercises fall on won’t really matter too much.

Day 3 is as follows:

A1: Power Cleans - 4x6x115 (SetsxRepsxWeight)
A2: Clap Push-Ups - 4x6xBW
A3: Chins - 4x6xBW

B1: Lateral Raises - 4x6x25
B2: BB Rows - 4x6x185
B3: Weighted Crunches - 4x6x45
B4: Reverse Lunge - 4x6x35lb DBs

40 sec rest between each set, and about 3-5 mins to rack and rerack my weights between circuits.

Boy do you have to put your ego on the back burner during these sessions. I wanted with all my heart to use 135# on the power cleans, but I knew when I got to the 3rd and 4th set I’d be kicking myself, and I was right. I got to those last 2 sets and I was glad I didn’t do it because I probably wouldn’t have been able to high pull it!

I realized at the end of the entire A circuit that I was supposed to be resting to 40 seconds when I was resting for 30. That’ll make next week and week 3 much easier. I adjusted when I got to the B circuit. Also, I didn’t do the hammer curls on the reverse lunges because I’ve never done them before and I wanted to make sure I got the form down and didn’t fall on my ass or break an ankle. All of our non-machine, non-freeweight equipment is upstairs so I had to subsitute weighted crunches for reverse crunches. If I ran upstairs real quick it would have demolished my rest period timing.

Schedule:
9am: HRX + BCAA
10am: Shake 1
11am: FiberOne
12pm: Shake 2
2pm: Shake 3 (Flax, 4 Fish Oil caps)
3pm: FiberOne
4pm: 20 min nap
4:30pm: HRX + BCAA
5:15pm: 1/2 Shake 4
7:30pm: Lift
9pm: Surge
10pm: 1/2 Shake 4
12:30: Shake 5 (TBSP Natty PB, 3 Flameout)

There was no excuse for me to not have my NEPA today, and I hate to rationalize in my head that I had a crazy day at work (which I did), but I still need to do it. This will hopefully be the last time it’s gunna happen, and I will make a serious conscious effort to make sure it is.

Tomorrow is the one week anniversary of my start of the V-Diet, and that means weigh ins!

I’ll be back with the dirt tomorrow.

Quick update that I couldn’t wait until tonight for:

I lost 6 lbs in the first week! I made sure I weighed myself on the same scale, at the same time, and I even drank my water this morning from the same glass I used last time to try to negate any effects of water weight gain/loss.

Needless to say I’m super excited. I still don’t think I look like I’ve lost 6 lbs, but hey, the scale is going down and that’s a good sign. If the weight loss keeps up at this rate (which I’m sure it most likely won’t), I’ll look damn good by the end of this thing. If I lose 24 lbs of fat, I’ll be at like 5% BF though, and I’m not sure that that’s gunna happen.

Great read so far. Looks like you have dedication in the bag. I just started myself and I’m approaching 48 hours.

I don’t have as much time to post so I’m doing weekly updates but the almost day by day posts you have are interesting.

Keep it up

Oh sweet, I didn’t think anyone but tmoney and my balls were following this.

48 hrs? How you like it so far? That first day for me was tough as all hell. I had to walk through campus and I was dying for a chicken wrap or a sandwich. I feel like it’s actually getting easier as time goes on.

What does your training look like?

Good luck, brethren.

Nice job on the weight loss so far dizz. Hey as long as the scale is going down, it’s all good. If you could lose 24 pounds, that would be good, but keep at it and see where it takes you.

Keep rockin it!

Alrighty, I have a week one wrap-up and the start of week two fro all my fans:

The First Week:

I stuck with the diet with perfect consistency. It’s so easy to get the hang of this thing, because there’s no real work to be done. All you have to do is make shakes, bust your ass in the gym, and walk. That’s it. What could be easier than that? You only have to count calories one time in 4 weeks, and after that it’s just routine, fidning a good flow, and time management.

If Chris Shugart is reading this by any chance, let me just say that I applaud you, sir. This diet is fantastic. I feel great, I can feel myself getting leaner, there’s no thinking involved, it’s quick, it pushes me mentally and physically, and the list goes on. This is as close to perfect as a diet can get (barring that you’re willing to sacrafice a lot and do lots of hard work in the gym and in your mind). I really could go on and on with lists of things I love about the V-Diet, but I think you get the point and I don’t want to sound like a complete ass kisser. In short, great job, and thank you. =]

I think that’s it. If I have anymore thoughts on the first week I’ll post when they pop up.

Week Two, Day One:

They say that the second week is the “problem week” for most people. I think that I’m growing stronger and stronger every day, and today was no different. As each day passes I feel like I don’t crave real food as much, and that I’m just falling deeper and deeper into a routine. In fact, today I was thinking about my transitional phase and I was bothered by the fact that I would be hassled to make one solid meal a day. Imagine that! Getting to eat a solid meal a day and having be a burden because it’s easier just to make a shake!

I don’t mean to get all sociopolitical on everyone, but I feel like this is the right time to do it. Let me just say that everyone on this site (me included) is so lucky to be doing what we are doing. We treat food largely as a non-survival-type entity. We see it as fuel, not something we need so we don’t starve. We manipulate it in ways to fuel our vain ambitions of looking or performing a certain way while children all over the planet literally starve to death. I’m no tree hugger and I’m not going to say to stop what you’re doing and give all your money to the poor, but what I am saying is that we can’t take what we have for granted. We need to be thankful for every day we have that we’re not blind, poor, starving, retarded, deaf, amputated, or anything else of that ilk because millions of people are born that way and we have the luxury of not having to worry about any of that.

Ahem. Sorry about that. You get my point.

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that this is becoming second nature to me; Wake up, walk, make schedule, make shakes, write out training routine, pack bag, go to school/work, drink shakes, train, sleep

It’s just my life at this point as opposed to the horrifyingly torturous diet it started as last week.

Schedule:

11:30am: HRX + BCAA
11:45am-12:45pm: NEPA
1:05pm: Shake 1
2:15pm: FiberOne
3:45pm: Shake 2
4:55pm: HRX + BCAA
6:05pm: Shake 3 (Flax, Flameout)
9:30pm: Shake 4
11:00pm: FiberOne
12:30am: Shake 5 (Flax, 2 tsp PB, Fish Oil)

I got a lot of sleep last night because I don’t have class until 2pm today, and I woke up at 11:30. Unfortunately, I won’t get much sleep tonight because I have to wake up to go to work at 9. I’ll make sure I get a nap in after I lift, though.

I am none-too happy about having to extend my side plank times tomorrow. I’ll say another thing, Chad’s training parameters that he orignally gave Gus fucking suck balls (in a good way =]). Every time I head to the gym I know I’m going to be in immense pain for every second I’m in there. Every time I’m in the weight room however, I always load the bar with as much weight as will allow me to properly perform everything according to his recommendations regarding form, rest periods, tempo, etc. On that note, it is hard as all hell. I get more of a conditioning workout from this routine than I ever have in any MMA conditioning training I have done. For that, Chad, I commend you.

Well it’s way past my bed time. I’ll have another update tomorrow. =]

Today is day #3 and I’m feeling fine. No problems at all now. A breeze if I must say. I just started a blog of mine, not as impressive as yours but something to read I suppose.

I’m following what Chris did for his but I might switch it up next week if I feel it not affective for me.

Could you supply a link to CW workout your performing? I love everything he designs.

Naughtybox, here’s the program:

V-Diet Training: The Advanced Program

PHASE I: V-Diet, 4 Weeks

Loading: Use the heaviest load you can manage with perfect form for all sets.

Tempo: Perform the lifting and lowering phases as fast as possible while maintaining perfect form.

Monday

A1 Wide-grip pull-up for 3 reps
Rest 30 seconds

A2 Overhead squat for 3 reps
Rest 30 seconds

A3 Dip for 3 reps
Rest 30 seconds and repeat A1-A3 six more times

Two sets of side plank hold for 60 seconds on each side

Note: As an advanced gym goer, you probably know this, but here’s a quick review. Those A1, A2, A3 designations mean that you perform one set of the A1 exercise, then one set of the A2 exercise after resting, and finally the A3 exercise. After one more rest, you perform all three exercises again for the required number of sets.

In the Monday workout above, you do a set of pull-ups, rest 30 seconds, a set of overhead squats, rest 30 seconds, then a set of dips. After another 30 second rest you repeat those exercises six times. At the end of the workout, you perform the side plank holds.

If you see B1, B2, B3 etc. that means you perform that circuit of exercises after you’re completely finished with the “A” movements.

Wednesday

A1 Dumbbell shoulder press with forward lunge for 4 reps
Rest 30 seconds

Note: This is a combo lift – two exercises performed together. Press the dumbbells overhead as you lunge forward. Lower the dumbbells as you return to the start position.

A2 Dumbbell hang clean for 4 reps
Rest 30 seconds

A3 One-arm dumbbell row for 4 reps
Rest 30 seconds and repeat A1-A3 three more times

B1 Close-grip bench press for 4 reps
Rest 30 seconds

B2 Standing barbell curl for 4 reps
Rest 30 seconds

B3 Front squat for 4 reps
Rest 30 seconds and repeat B1-B3 three more times

Two sets of plank hold for 90 seconds

Friday

A1 Power clean for 6 reps
Rest 40 seconds

A2 Clap push-up for 6 reps
Rest 40 seconds

A3 Chin-up for 6 reps
Rest 40 seconds and repeat A1-A3 three more times

B1 Standing dumbbell side raise for 6 reps
Rest 40 seconds

B2 Bent over barbell row for 6 reps
Rest 40 seconds

B3 Reverse crunch on slant board for 6 reps
Rest 40 seconds

B4 Reverse lunge with hammer curl for 6 reps on each side
Rest 60 seconds and repeat B1-B4 three more times

Phase I Progression

Each week you’ll make the workout harder by adding a circuit, resting less, or adding a repetition. Here’s how to progress in the advanced program:

Monday: Add one circuit to each workout. So by week 4 you’ll perform 10 circuits of A1-A3. Increase the side plank hold by 10 seconds with each workout.

Wednesday: Add one repetition to each set. So by week 4 you’ll perform 7 reps for each exercise. Increase the plank hold by 10 seconds with each workout.

Friday: Decrease each rest period by 5 seconds. So by week 4 you’ll rest 25 seconds between each exercise.

And here’s the link in case you want to see the whole thread it’s from: http://www.T-Nation.com/readPhysClin.do?id=1852678&pageNo=1

It’s just Gus’s original program from his Physique Clinic. Good luck, dude.

Good job so far on your V-Diet journey Dizz! Yeah, Chad’s program was tough but very effective. Wait till week 4! I sure don’t miss those planks though ha ha! That exercise showed me how weak my abs were! I think I shook like a leaf every time I did it as well as the regular planks.

You have the right mindset for the diet and I know you are going to make some great progress. Keep it Spartan Strict and milk the program for all it is worth. Take care.

Wow. The legendary Gus posting on my thread! I feel so honored. Your progress is truly inspiring man, let me tell you. Your attitude, dedication and hard work are a testament to what this site should really be all about. No bullshit, just balls.

And yeah, those planks are killer. I literally almost chunked when I was doing them last week, so this week I cut out the peri-WO Surge ;]

Thanks for your words, Gus, and keep up the good work.
