First and foremost- I originally posted this in the Biotest Velocity Diet forum and they didn’t let me cause I didn’t use Biotest Supps.
Regardless, will be using this log for myself, simply to keep
track of everything during this little experiement and to keep a place for
updates beside my own workout logbook.
A little background about me: 4 sport athlete, Collegiate/Minor League
Baseball Player, turned powerlifter/strongman. Became a S&C/Performance
Coach myself (NASM CPT, NASM CE, Pn1, FRC, NSCS CSCS, etc).
I don’t feel like I truly need to lose much weight (although that doesn’t
mean I don’t have some excess fat I COULD lose); however, I agreed to
support my wife cause she wanted to do some dumb “lose weight, win money”
diet bet crap. Either way the competetive side of me is obvisouly wanting
to win this and win some money so I have decided to do the V-Diet. I have
been putting on weight and strength this past year now that I have my own
home gym vs. working out in a park (F*cking Covid). I have read and heard
about the V-diet in many of the old Bodybuilding “cult” forums and am
going to give this a try and see how it goes.
With that in mind, I will not be following the exact “V-Diet.” READERS GASP
I also will be doing my own modified workouts as well. READERS DOUBLE GASP
I know, I know…Chris would be disappointed but I have my own supps, and I
am a propent of eating real food vs purely supps. I have done the math in
regards to the MACROS for an avg day of eating using Biotest Supps vs my
own (Which I will list below) and made it as close as possible. It is
literally the same calories, with some slightly different MACRO counts-
but honestly, I don’t think consuming an extra 5g of carbs/day will
somehow screw the whole diet up. That’d just be dumb.
I also want to remind anyone reading along with me, that my choice to not
follow not the supps/workout routine is because for me this is an
EXPERIMENT. It is my 28 days so if you’re going to bash what I want to do
and cry, “Well that’s not the diet”- you can F*ck right off. I know it
isn’t the exact plan laid out. That’s why it is an EXPERIMENT, and I am
choosing to log it so anyone who attempts to try this “Modified Protein
Sparing Fast” with other supps/workouts will have a clue about what may
happen. (Last time I checked the OG diet was basically an experiment Chris
Lastly, I am currently doing my version of the diet as we speak, for the past week but this past memorial day weekend I had a little getaway where I drank/didn’t eat the most healthy way. So although I started it Monday, May 24, 2021 (And do look a little less bloated with about 5lbs
lost!), I will “Officially” Start on today Thursday June 3, 2021 and go through
Wednesday June 30 (That is the diet bet weigh-in day).
My Offical Starting Weights and Dimensions (Taken using an Evolt Body
Scanner) as of Thursday May 27, 2021
Height and Weight: 6’1 236.8lbs
Body Fat Mass: 41lbs
Body Fat Percentage: 17.3%
I will be taking pictures after my getaway and will keep them for myself
until the challenge is done
My Daily Meal Plan/Supps Results may vary
Upon Waking (4am most days): Nutrakey Yohimbine HCL x9mg
Breakfast (6-7am): Orgain Organic Protein + Superfoods x1serving, and
Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein x1serving
Mid-Morning (10am): Optimum Nutrition x2 servings
Pre-Workout (Normally start my workout between 12-2pm): Nutrakey Yohimbine
HCL x12mg and a 5hr Energy
Post Workout: Optimum Nutrition x2 servings, Fish Oil x2
Dinner (7-8pm): Various types of meat, 1/2 cup of rice, spinach, beans,
peppers, etc. cooked in kerrygold butter or olive oil. A very “Vertical
Diet” sort of meal.
Additionally, if I worked out I have created my own
“Plazma” shake I will actually drink with dinner to makeup for lost
calories. (Can’t really take Yohimbine and Food at the same time- pretty
counter productive). Also 2 more fish oil pills
Pre-Bed (9pm): Optimum Nutrition x1, Fish Oil x3
I also drink 1-1.5 gallons of water/day and take Vitamin D3, Magnesium,
Lastly, for anyone curious about my blended homemade Plazma drink here it is
-Cranberry Juice x8oz (NOT COCKTAIL)
-Spinach x1-1.5 cups
-Optimum Nutrition x1 serving
Obviously on non-workout days I would not consume my “Plazma” drink which
saves alot of calories!
Planned Training Routine
Jailhouse Density Training (Modified) x3/week
Rucking x1-2/week plus abs and stretching (counted as active rest not a
Golf x1-2/week (I am gearing up for a few upcoming Long Drive events, also
not counted as a workout day)
Well, I will be checking back in on this in a week for two. See ya then!
