Hi Guys and girls
Long time lurker first time poster
T-Nation has been an amazing place to find unbelievably good information over the years
Certainly has helped me tons, Personally and as a Trainer when I was doing it.
I had seen the original Velocity diet all those years ago and i think managed one day before i called it quits. Having seen the ‘‘updated’’ version of a healthy meal daily, I have so far been able to stick to it for a full 7 days so far.
I wanted to start a log from the beginning but I was a bit worried about starting because I don’t have any of the Biotest supplements. Not sure if that messes with the legitimacy of the log.
It is purely an currency thing and how useless my country is at the moment (South Africa).
If it is still ok to post i shall continue to do so. I have found the best of what i can find here.
Have my Protein powder with ECGC, EFA’s and Amino’s , My Fat burner with All the right goodies and Fish Oils. I do feel my results would be better with what you guys sell but i do what i can…
So the reason i started this V-Diet was because my eating habits had gone completely out the window. Junk food, Frozen yoghurts, Chocolates, Cake etc mixed in with all the good foods and heavy hard lifting made me your typical big strong guy in the gym but ugly with his shirt off guy.
I had just done a stint on the cruise ships working as the personal trainer, 12 hour days with scheduled eating times with time off to go explore europe for 7 hours or so on scheduled days left me very fit without trying, eating desserts and big meals every time i could and still got shredded down to 187 lbs with abs. When i came back home i wanted to get back to my typical big guy lifting big weights look and of course going back into an environment where i could just eat and eat and eat had me balloon up to 232.32lbs before i called it quits.
The first pics i took had me wanting to vomit looking at myself. so i think i may just take some today at some point.
I am currently sitting at 217.8lbs
Waist is mainly what im looking at but i do know all my stats.
waist by bellybutton was 37 inches last week and this morning is 35 inches.
all my other measurements are either the same or only slightly smaller which i attribute mainly to less total glycogen in the muscles at this point.
My longer term goal is to compete and i am doing this to prove to myself that i can do an very strict plan still…the last time i did was in 2012 when i got very shredded , my drive being my love of my life at that point leaving me.
now my goal is to get in competitive shape to see if i do have an possibility of competing one day hopefully before i am 30 i am 28 this year.
so far it honestly has been such an easy transition. It is nice to not feel so bloated and see little changes to my body so far. I feel extremely motivated and the biggest thing is i just dont let myself lament over what im doing which makes it easy.
