I have not used it while playing golf yet. It’s more of a timing issue for me at this point as I have not played any golf on the weekends, only after work. I don’t take my Spike on workdays because I drink too much coffee at the moment. I will let you know if it makes a difference.
Ok so off topic but performance related. I took a crack at the V-Diet or a very similar one, (berries in my shakes) for about one week. I wanted to see how it affected me but wasn’t really looking to drop a bunch of weight. Plus I had our dart league playoffs coming up and I didn’t want t be messing around untill they were over with.
Well a day before our first playoff match I started to eat normal again, I felt absolutely wonderful and my energy was through the roof. Then something amazing happened for one full night I was absolutely on fire. I shot a 4.5 MPR average for the night which for anyone who doesn’t know much about darts is basically at a high pro level. I even shot a 6.0 for one full game that night which is pretty much unheard of. The people I was playing with couldn’t believe it (and we smoked them to boot) as I am only a first year league player and my average is a 2.2 MPR.
Anyways, I have nothing to contribute this performance to other than the fact that I was so up and in the zone like I have never been before. I think coming off the V-Diet with a lower energy level to jumping right back into a normal diet, essentially bounced me into some type of super performance mode. The next day I practiced and was hitting everything in sight, but then the effect started dwindling after that.
Of course I will be expirimenting with this in the future, and might try to do this before my first golf league night to see if it will do anything there as well. If it is something I can repeat this may be the start of a very good thing. Has anyone else noticed any effects when coming off the V-Diet or similar diets? either in lifting or non lifting sports.
