No, stepping on a scale doesn’t add weight, but weighing in that often can be a mindfuck (pardon my French), especially during a fat loss phase. It messes with a person’s head and causes them to react by making unnecessary changes to a plan rather than sticking to the pre-determined plan. And that’s 100% exactly what happened here.
If you had stuck to the V-Diet, as written, from Day 1 to Day 7 and then weighed in, you would’ve been able to make a well-informed decision about whether or not to make adjustments.
With regard to measuring multiple sites, it’s because fat loss generally isn’t location-specific. Just because your goal is to lose from your neck and waist doesn’t mean that’s how you body will respond. If you drop an inch off your chest, an inch off your below-navel waist, a half-inch off upper arms, then you’re losing fat and things are working. But you won’t notice if you keep a narrow focus.
But, okay, let’s set aside the multiple measurements. To date, you still haven’t told us how your measurements changed anyway. The stats you put in the first post, were those current or initial? Do you even know how much your target measurements have changed? I asked this same thing two days ago, but you only responded to the part about how your clothes are fitting.
Lastly, (another question you’re going to ignore), it just dawned on me that you never mentioned the extra cardio workouts you wanted to do. The 20-minute high intensity runs and 30-minute lower intensity cycling. Did those not happen, were you counting them as NEPA, or what?
I had forgotten about it before, but it kinda throws another question mark on your whole “I was following the plan exactly and doing the workouts as suggested”-thing.
Your repetition about unethical whatever is kinda laughable, and also kinda insulting. It’s weird to be pointing fingers about people being unethical when you’ve been bashing the diet and its results even though you were following it wrong in eight different ways (as I listed in my last post).
I’m not in charge of advertising, but I’m pretty certain any testimonials are pulled from members on the forum and can be fully supported. Complaining about some pics being from the older version isn’t relevant, because the current V-Diet is more effective than the original plan.
