I am starting the Velocity Diet Saturday May 22, 2010.
The V-Diet is a popular 28 day cutting program consisting of protein shakes and various fat sources like milled flaxseeds, all natural peanut butter and fish oil. I have decided to document my progress here.
I have done the Velocity Diet before. The program worked well while I was on it. I have run progress threads on the V-Diet before on bb.com
I am doing the V-Diet to lose fat and reset my food cravings and reset taste buds. In 2010 I have been on a eating roller coaster. I've had days of eating good foods then POW- binge on bad foods. This V-Diet is breaking that cycle for me. After the V-Diet is over I am going to go back on the Warrior Diet/Intermittent Fasting . So the V-Diet is for some quick fat loss and muscle retention.
I also like the discipline of the V-Diet. I have been playing games in my head about what to eat or what not to eat and how much etc.. I remember changing my mind back and forth too many times between having a low carb day/high carb day. I need something that is just simple and I can just do.

I am modeling my V-Diet after Gus Pacho. Do a search "Velocity Diet Gus" and I find that I have similar stats to him. We are about the same starting weight, training experience, diet experience etc. So I took the eating model from Gus' V-Diet and made it fit me.
Here are the details on the food/supplements for this diet. Some of the following is paraphrased from V-Diet creator Chris Shugart
MRM Whey Protein 1 scoop a shake
Optimum Casein Protein 50%/50% mix with unflavored pure casein 1 scoop a shake
So I am taking in a protein source of 50% whey and 50% casein
Five shakes a day (1 scoops each above protein) = 220 caloriess each shake, 40 grams protein
Comes out to approximately
The other calorie containing supplements and foods:
Fish Oil (10 calories a capsule. 8 caps a day):
Protein: About 2g
Milled Flax: 2 servings per day:
Natural Peanut Butter: 1 serving per day:
Add all that up and see what we have for non-lifting day:
On Training days a dextrose+whey workout shake will be consumed during and after workouts adding about
Other supplements on the V-Diet include
Oxy Pro Elite ( I have about a week's worth left then I will switch to EC stack)
Fiber Pills about 4 pills a day
USP Labs jacked preworkout 2 scoops
**I might order some Leucine (never tried it) to add to the program. I have tried Superfood green style supplements before but I never felt a difference from them.)
The training goals:
3 weight training sessions a week hitting full body. This is routine for me actually I have been doing full body workouts for a few years now.
7 hours of walking a week. This is the average of 1 hour per day. Some days I might do more and some less .
Goal of this program is to stick to the nutrition and training outline. I want to fit into size 34 pants. I was wearing size 34 in 2009 at my leanest point. Now I am size 36. I have a bunch of pants that are too small staring me right in the face and I desire to fit into them again.
