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.
