This is my second time doing the Vdiet. The first time around was a success. With a move to the Big Apple and desk job right out of college, I quickly put on the pounds (organized sports in college saved my regular eating habits!). I started around 150 pounds 23% BF and ended on 130 pounds and 19% BF.
The first time wasn’t as bad as I thought and I followed everything to the T. This time around, I am starting at 140 pounds and 20% BF with the goal to get to 127 and keep my BF between 17-19%. It seems harder for me this time. I am feeling lethargic and mentally exhausted. I am on a successful day 2 but I have to say that I think my meal was over the calorie intake. I had a huge serving of chopped chicken breast, sautéed collard greens/broccoli/garlic dish, and some roasted sweet potato. I was somehow still hungry with my sweet tooth and gave in to consuming 2 small organic apples.
Tomorrow I will attempt to stick to it 100% with all portions being addressed.
Also, with my workouts - I have a trainer who introduced me to the Vdiet and I am working out with him 3x a week on strength. I’ve been doing powerlifting and Olympic lifting for the most part.
I will take my BF and measurements tonight and start to keep up with my progress here!
Good luck to all whom are on this adventure too!! You can do it! It’s hard but the reward is definitely worth every brownie and cocktail you forgo!
