Just checking here… I usually drink a ton of water, but have not felt like drinking much so far on the diet. Should I force myself to drink more h20? I don’t care about water weight, just inches.[/quote]
You are likely already drinking a lot of water given all the Metabolic Drive shakes and Surge drinks. I would not force more unless you want it.
And by the way, “water weight” is often caused from not drinking enough water. One of the best ways to get rid of bloat is to drink more water. So you have that backward a bit.
Also, (don’t flame me for this), you cannot stunt muscle growth if you are following the calories counts correctly right? Will I continue to get bigger or will I just sort of “maintain?” Again, I’m not worried about losing… just about gaining.[/quote]
You will not lose muscle on the V-Diet if following it correctly and training as mandated. However, it’s a fat loss diet, not a muscle-gain diet.
Some DO gain a little muscle if they’re new to a good lifting program or adequate protein intake, but that’s not the primary goal of the V-Diet. The main goals are rapid fat loss, muscle maintenance, and positive taste/habit changes.
