I’m not going to call this a Velocity Diet (although it’s pretty darned close) in deference to the “V-Diet fundamentalists”, thus the name VDEX for “V-Diet experiment”.
It seems there are several very negative people who are quite vocal on this forum. I’ve been very hesitant to post about my experiences. In the end, I decided that there are a lot more people reading than posting, and hopefully some part of my experience will help someone with their experiment. So, here goes!
I didn’t start out with the intention of doing anything more than trying a day or two of protein shakes. I’d just bought some micellar casein, I had some whey protein blend, and I just intended a trial run to “shake” things out (pun intended).
I’d started out at over 190 lbs in mid-2007 and was down into the low 160’s by March of this year, but I just wasn’t making any progress. In fact I was losing ground. I’d diet down with a sensible, low-carb diet through the week, but cheat all weekend and gain any weight I’d lost through the week back. I love food. I love beer. I love BBQ. I’m a pretty good cook, and I’m a pretty good homebrewer. Not a good combination for losing weight! So I felt I needed to do some thing drastic to break out of the rut I’d dug for myself.
So, I started my experiment on Friday May 9. I’d dieted down through the week, and the plan was to try the diet over the weekend. I hoped to be able to break the pattern of pigging out over the weekend. Then I’d be able to make some progress
