    ctjacket's VDiet log :)

    Okay I am losing weight, but I kind of plateaued right now, and I suspect my diet. So to kick start everything again, I'm going to do the velocity diet.

    Right now I am at 230. I started at about 250 in early Feb.

    My max is 1900, min is 1600.


    MWF - 1840 calories, around 270g protein, and 98g carbs
    TTS - 1720 calories, around 240g protein, and about 60g carbs.

    Supps I'm using:

    Flameout (instead of 21 fish oil caps)
    Matrix 5.0
    Surge (post-workout on MWF)
    A thing of milled flax from Whole Foods.
    All natural pb (2 tbsp a day in my night shake to make sure i hit the calorie goals without going over the carb limit)

    Ill get some pics up later and try and get waist measurements too.
    And according to my scale and calipers, Im at about 20-21% bf.

    So how does this look?

    Okay well started this morning.

    Man that first shake was tough to get down. It was chocolate 5.0


    Im going to try the orange one now and hopefully that is better. Otherwise this is going to be a tough 4 weeks.

    Okay heres the before pics.

    Today was good. Not difficult at all. I think because I am so focused on this, food is not even an issue. But we'll see if I change my tune in a week or so.

    What are all you guys doing on your non-lifting days? Is 30min of cardio on the elliptical too much?

    Also I'm pretty sure my waistline is around 38-40. I couldn't find any type of tape measure anywhere.

    So far so good today.

    I just had a huge craving for food because everyone around me was making dinner.


    But I perservered and am now drinking my second to last shake of the night.

    Is 8 pints of water enough a day or should I aim for more?

    I hate to be the one to tell ya and I feel almost like a hypocrit as I drink 5 or 6 diet pepsis a day but there is 2 differences one its carbonated which means your body reacts differently to it then water as it is acidic and then there is the big one the salt a can of diet pepsi (canadian u.s. may be different) has 30mg of sodium. The answer for me is for every pop I drink I drink a extra glass of water. Good luck your doing great keep it up.
    Next stop 250 lbs both my weight and lost 😁

    Highest Weight 500lbs +
    Lowest Weight since joining 264lbs

    Current 264 lbs

    Time to get to my original dream goal

    Ah okay.

    Well I'm all out of diet soda in my fridge anyway, so no more for the next 25 days.

    Man I'm just worried that I'm doing this whole diet and nothing is going to change. But I haven't seen anyone not lose a good amount of weight doing this. Any other Vdieters feel like that?

    25 days left!

    Hopefully someone can help me out with this.

    I have a drug test coming up for my new job. Is there anyway at all any of these pills Im taking can give any false positives or anything like that? I was thinking about stopping the day before if there was even a chance that would happen. It probably makes them think somethings up too when my urine comes out this almost greenish color or is really watered down.

    Yea I know that. Just making sure like theres no chance any of this stuff would somehow show up as illegal drugs.


    I feel like I am thinner right now than when I started. But this weekend is going to be a real test to see how well I can hold up. People partying all around me and eating out all the time. At least I have the new Halo 3 beta to keep me busy.

    Okay first update!


    I definitely feel thinner, and the pics show it.

    I messed up on my first weight measurement. I forgot that I stepped on the scale and got 235 initially, then went back on 5 min later and saw 230.5.
    So I figure I was actually somewhere in the middle to begin with.

    I am 228.5 as of this morning! Double checked about 15 min after the first one.

    Heres progress pics. You can notice it around my stomach. If I was better at taking photos it would be easier to see.
