Ok, is this all your ingesting? Protein shakes?

I am assuming your going for around 1500 cals. 190-225 g protein and around 100-150 g carbohydrates. Is this your whole diet plan or are you eating meals between or with the shakes?

Velocity diet is a shake diet mixed with Flax and Fish oil, with a pwo recovery drink. For me it is roughly 1900 calories on training days (MWFS) and 1650 on non workout days (TTSat). I also am taking a Multi, Vita C pill too.

Not hungry, just more of a slight headache, but I assume it is due to the lack of carbs, and the lack of sleep 6 hours (used to 7 or 8).

It is not hunger. Actually I am quite full or satisfy.

It just the craving for real food, the need of real food.
Now all my co-workers are having lunch, and you smell the food they are having.
God, can't wait for the 28 days to be up :)

I was leary at first, but I think the results are worth the time. Plus after seeing continous results and a PM from NIICK, I think I will enjoy it. Please do add input and keep up to date with it.

Thanks, I did weigh myself this morning and to my surprise I was 219.5 on the scale. I understand this is water weight, and it is understandable, because to keep myself sane I did have two cheats on Saturday and not a lot of water. But it does feel good to see the numbers go down instead of up.

You need to ingest at least 2-3 litres of plain water each day.

I presume you aware of the deaths on liquid protein diets in the 1970s.

Thanks for the link, yes I took in roughly 1.5 gallons of water, or 6 litres of water yesterday and plan to do the same everyday. Also, I forgot that I did a colon cleanse on Sunday and spent a good portion of the morning in the bathroom, so that might account for some of the loss.

any chance of before and after pics man? When I tried this my weight actually went up for the first three days, so abandonment pursued! I did 45-60 mins cardio in morning swimming around 100 (25) lengths, and then 60 mins weight training in the evening 4-5 days per week for both

I personally found the v diet easier when on a training day, more to do, more distraction etc.

I wish you all the best of luck! Its amazing what jon started followed by justdragit, I wonder why its got so popular now?

Yes, I do have pics that I took on Sunday, and once I get my laptop working again I will upload them. Also, I do agree, though only on my second day, day one was easy, actually it is all easy except lunch time around the office. Food has taken on a new smell.

I attribute it to water loss and a colon cleanse this weekend. Last week I was 221.5 but I took this weekend off of my diet/accompanied with not a lot of water=224. You and I will both do good, no worries.

I did take pictures, I have them on my camera at home, and mainly use the internet from work. I will post them weekly, and also I going to do measurements tonight. But, I do have a question for you Jon, does it get easier or harder getting accustomed to this diet?

Good to hear, what type of protein are you using? Did you eat oats on the weekend, or do the cheat in the orginal program? Are you having a hard time sticking to this diet? Reps for the loss too!

another slacker at work, i like it! ;)

i went over my whole progress and journey in my original log. but basically for ME it was easiest the first week with everything fresh and new. second week wasn't too bad but def harder than the first. third week was a blur. fourth week i had already hit my goal weight and just wanted it to be over lol.

you really should never get hungry, i was only hungry a few times. but if you wake up in the middle of the night for some reason you will be starving. i really don't know how to describe it, but after the first few days it is just a feeling of sedated i guess, never hungry and never full.

I looked at your log, amazing job!!!

If this one workout, I will be doing this one and try it again around the end of september, beginning of October.

Thanks for the insight. My only problem is I am leaving for Vegas tomorow and might be difficult to get my protein drink on the plan, but will try.
If doesn't work as I plan, I will just add an extra week to my diet when I come back on Sunday.

I know, bad timing :(

Yeah, I get a lot of my posts in while here. I was asking because there are a few things I dont like, like taste in my mouth from the Fish/Flax at night. I noticed my last shake of the night, the flax at the end of the shake makes me gag. Did you mix the flax in your shakes or how did you ingest your flax? Also, I am never hungry, actually I wish I could miss a shake. I was just hoping that it got easier with time, instead of harder. But, I havent had a problem, I have mixed it up and do 1 scoop Casein/1 scoop whey in 2 of my workout shake days however, pre workout and lunch shakes.

This isnt a bash because if this works for you then more power to ya, but to me this just seems like a really dumb and unhealthy way of losing weight.

I think it is off the wall way of losing weight, and I agree it is crazy. Like you, I had my doubts, but after seeing some success with others, I figured it was worth a try. Like NIICK said, it is only a month if it doesnt work.

Crazy --> Yes
Stupid --> Yes
Unhealthy --> I doubt. Still getting in my protein, garbs, healtfy fats and vitamins.

Look at it this way, more than half of the famous and incredible things that exist today was believe to be crazy and stupid when they just came out.
After all, it's only a month, what do I gotta loose beside the weight?

Going on to day 4, yesterday I did Chest/Triceps. No noticed problems, it does look like my skin is tighter in my back. New weight today is 217.5.

SkinnyDip
05-18-2007, 11:07 AM
Going on day 5, Weighed in this morning and the scale said 214.5. Don't know how accurate this is, but not losing any strength. But, since i know that muscle loss on an extreme cut could be a problem I pushed my chest/triceps on Wednesday to see how they would react. I have Shoulders/Traps today and then 15 minutes low intensity cardio. Doing my measurements on Tuesday to see inches lost.

Side note, I did have a bad reaction to something this morning, I threw up during this morning.

By that time I had only had

Scorch x 2 capsules
1 2 scoop shake, w/flax and 4 Fish Oils, Multi, Calcium Pill.
2 cups of coffee.

Why is this?

Its really just extra calorie restriction and shakes make for ease. Its around 700 to 800 Kcals less than maintainence so its not completely terrible. loads of protein, 100g carbs and around 50g fat

I was down 9.5 lbs, but after the weekend I went to 218. So, I am currently at 28. I think I put back on my water weight after I went back to real food, but I did also have a cheat meal on Sunday night. A Chicken Wrap.
