Folks…I am a lurker, been here for a couple years. Reading learning and observing. Wanted to do the VD for a while and finally determined it was time. I’m on the 6th day and feeling great!! I have the following advice about this diet.
#1. Be extremely mentally prepared for this ordeal. It is not to be done on a whim. #2. Find something you are passionate about to take your mind off yourself when you feel “weak”. I read my Bible when I drink my lunch shake. Study about my 69 GTO when I feel “hungry”.
Take time to learn a new bass fishing lake. Anything you can to stop thinking about yourself and your wants at that time. Learn something useful and use your mind to encourage your mental growth as well as your physical well-being.
#3. Keep helping folks on this forum and encouraging them…you never know who you help or who you hurt. You can do one or the other.
Keep pushing and striving. You’ve, unknowingly, helped a 51 year old start to get his health and life back on track.
Have a great day!!!
