Get Shredded Diet Optimal for 18-20% Bodyfat?


Is the get shredded diet optimal for someone at around 18-20% BF, or should it be only used for someone with lower BF to get even more shredtastic?


Have you not read the article?

“I can’t emphasize this point enough ? this strategy isn’t for everyone. In fact, if you’re closer to 20% body fat than you are to 10%, this strategy isn’t for you at all. However, once you’ve figured out how to slowly and sanely whittle your fat percentage down to the “fairly lean” range (12% or less for men and 19% or less for women) and you’ve learned the habits that help you stay that way, that’s when something like this can be a powerful weapon in your fat loss arsenal.”


@HGH - The V-Diet is a great plan, without knowing anything about your nutrition and training, if you really are at 18%-20%, it should get you close 10%-12%. However, if you’re just estimating, be sure to get a better method of confirmation, multi-site caliper test or something, not a “body fat scale” or hand held device. http://www.T-Nation.com/store/packages/velocity-diet, there’s currently a great discount going on as well, helpful for this purchase if you decide to do it.


You could try any of these, they all work if you follow them accordingly:

Good luck!


I’m doing the bodybuilding 200k transformation challenge. Winning this would change my life drastically, so i wanna approach this in the most extreme way (give it all or nothing).

I hate asking this question but, which method would be the best? I know the V-Diet has incredible results but the 100g carb diet looks appealing too…


I don’t have much of a say since I’m currently at the same bf% but from all the reading I’ve been doing over the last few months in this forum the velocity diet is probably going to be your best solution. If I had the $ right now I would be ordering it to do it my self to get me as close to 8% as possible.
