I’m on John Berardi’s Get Shredded diet right now. I’m definitly losing fat pretty fast. Not sure about muscle loss, but I’m not getting weaker. I also find it pretty easy to follow. Only problem was that I wasn’t getting enough fiber and got constipated pretty bad. I added more low carb vegetables, and replaced the cheese I was eating with almonds. I am also taking clenbuterol mostly for its anti-catabolic effects.
I dispise cookie cutter diets like that. Any diet that starts off with an immediate 1000+ calorie drop off SUCKS. Everything must be done SLOWLY. Anyone on the “Get Shredded Diet” who says they didn’t lose strength/energy is lying to you, unless of course they were already eating under 2500 calories.
My maintenence cals are in the mid-upper 3’s, that diet told me to multiply my bodyweight by TEN! That’s terribly unhealthy. The least you could do is SLOWLY lower to that, and even then, BWx10 is still too low. Even in precontest I don’t go that low untill the week before a photoshoot/show.[/quote]
Here what you are saying,i feel with a calorie reduction of that magnitude would definatly make me lose muscle however at the same time i do put my trust into JB.
I seen some guy post pictures of himself before and after this diet and he looked like shit compaired to the before picture,however he still have a beach body but i like to look big and full not with a small pecs,arms etc…
So roy what do you suggest?I was gonna do shredded?
