I found the Velocity Diet to be really, really manageable and easy. (Am I the only person who you’ve ever heard this from?)
Would it be ill-advised to extend the duration of the diet to 8 weeks?
I have been doing it for 2 weeks so far, dropping from 11.8 kilos of body fat mass (by electrical impedance tests at my gym) (16.8% body fat) to 9.4 kilos of bad fat (13.8%). Fantastic results so far that far exceeded my expectations!
What are the downsides and health risks to keeping this diet in the long-term? I would love to drop down to 8% body fat. Is this an effective diet for getting there? Is there anything else I need to do to get to 8% body fat?
PS: I am eating 200 calories of nuts instead of 200 calories of nut butter. I figure it’s the same thing and it is much easier to eat nuts than to find, store and eat nut butter. Also, I appreciate being able to choose what kind of nuts I eat each day. I am, of course, careful not to pick nuts with any honey or sugar. Sometimes, they will have salt or pepper, though.
