I am currently on a diet, one week in, that promotes rapid fat loss, Healthily! My intent was to wait until I finished the diet and then start a
thread with my results and recomendations, but do to popular demand I have decided to inform the masses.......
BTS....I give you The
Velocity Diet (V-Diet)
, designed by Chris Shugart, the Assistant Editor of T-Nation
What to expect
Let me explain a few things before I dive into this. If you want to lose weight slowly over the course of months by eating healthy, but solid meals 5
times a day and exercising regularly, this diet is not for you. If you can't follow any other diet plan out there because of cravings, withdrawls or
just plain loss of will power, please exit this thread now.
If, however, you want to rapidly dissolve the fat that is making you tired, unhealthy and miserable then please proceed with caution. This diet is
not for everyone.
I started this diet for two reasons. Firstly, to try and dissolve some stubborn fat that I have around my lower back. Secondly, to test drive an
experimental diet that may help my clients in the future, therefore, I must know how it affects a person. And of course I have to know first hand if
it even works......
Well, after one week. I can honestly say that it works. Hands down. No joke. Here's the best part, I'm in great shape and I still lost fat in
those trouble areas. I even cheated nearly 4 times during the past week.
a success story......
So let's get to it. The diet lasts a total of 4 weeks. Thats it! In four weeks you can expect to lose between 10 and 20 lbs of fat, depending on
your body composition. It is a restricted calorie diet that consists of eating Protein and Fat, with a limited carbohydrate intake. The best part
about this diet is that you don't have to worry about what you'll be eating every meal. You'll be eating protein shakes.
First, you need to find out how many calories to consume each day....
First plug total bodyweight into this equation:
(10.2 x bodyweight + 879) x .50 = _____
Now do it again with this equation:
(10.2 x bodyweight + 879) x .60 = _____ (Only the .60 is different.)
So, let's say a guy weighs 193 pounds and wants to see what his physique would look like at a ridiculously shredded 180:
(10.2 x 193 + 879) x .50 = 1424 calories
(10.2 x 193 + 879) x .60 = 1709 calories
Now, let's round those numbers to the nearest hundred for the sake of simplicity: 1400 and 1700. What our sample guy has now is the absolute minimal
and maximal amount of calories he's going to consume while on the Velocity Diet.
The first number is what you'll aim for on non-training days and the second on training days. Pretty simple.
I've modified the diet just a little bit to make it easier on you guys. Your food intake will be the following:
Low carb protein powder. Milled flax seed. Fish oil. Peanut butter, all natural.
My first day on the
Non-workout day----5 protein shakes spread throughout the day. Milled flax seed spread throughout the day in the protein shake. 20 fish oil
capsules. Less than 40g of carbs intake.
Workout day--5 protein shakes spread throughout the day. milled Flax seed spread throughout the day in protein shake. Peanut Butter for a snack. One
solid meal after your workout. Make it a healthy one. One high in protein and carbs. Less than 100g of carb intake.
You can also eat a bowl of oatmeal and blueberries on saturday mornings. Other than those two solid meals, it's pretty much protein shakes.
Edit: Drink lots of water too!!!
The exercise is pretty simple really.
. There is no need for High Intesity Cardio due to the restricted calories.
Weight train 3 days a week
. I don't care what it is as long as it is a high intensity resistance training session. If you want a specific
lifting program feel free to U2U me.
Transitioning out of the diet is tricky. You'll probably gain a few pounds of water weight due to the added carbohydrates. For 2 weeks eat foods
that are high in protein and fibrous
carbs. You really just want to slowly introduce any carbs, other than green vegies, back into your
Thats pretty much it. After this diet, you'll appreciate those healthy foods that you don't get much of now and you'll definately start to lose
your cravings for carbs. If you crave carbs now, you might want to grab a tub of L-glutamine and take a small amount when your carb cravings come
back again. It's not going to be easy but it will be short lived. This is the best
fat blasting diet I've seen. Get ready to amaze
yourself and everyone around you. If you need recommendations on what to eat after the diet is over, feel free to ask.
Hope this helps!
