I’m on day 2 of the velocity diet. Technically, I’m under the minimum weight required to start the plan, but I am doing it anyway (I’m stubborn). My reasoning is that I want use it to kick start my life into a new fitness direction, improve my nutrition habits and overcome some poor eating habits, and add some muscle.
Historically I’ve been an endurance athlete and have the typical skinny-fat build. As I age (43 yom), I realize I should focus more on keeping/adding muscle, maintaining mobility and flexibility, and being healthy. I still enjoy endurance activities (short distance triathlons and cycling), but I realize I need to add the other stuff.
Has anyone that is underweight or at the minimum weight been successful in adding muscle on this program or at least improving body comp and not becoming more unhealthy?
I should mention that I’m 5’11", 141 pounds, and about 12-13% bodyfat.
