Well, I’ve been interested in starting the v-diet, so I’ve put aside some extra cash and decided to begin it.
I will log daily. I will begin on Monday December 14th. I plan to diet until February 11th.
I just ordered 9 tubs of protein powder from T-Nation, 1 can of hot rocks, 1 tub of surge, and 1 tub of creatine. I forgot BCAA’s, I was wondering why it was so inexpensive. I will probally go buy them from GNC when I buy my flax seed oil/salmon capsules. Any reccomendations on the brand? I don’t think I’ll be ordering from T-Nation because of shipping on low cost orders.
I plan to eat Blueberries + oatmeal for solid meal, however more than likely I will probally end up going out to a steak house out of pure lust for meat.
I will be taking pictures december 13th and on February 11th.
Currently i’m 165, 5’8 @ 15.5% body fat. I am aiming for 9-10%.
I took a few months off lifting and recently started again. I would like to get a good base to start on again. I’m aiming for 9-10% body fat then just adding lean muscle on from there with a solid diet.
If anyone has any tips on the diet please let me know, I appreciate the help. I’ll update after day one.
Congratulations on choosing to get on the V.
I am on day 14 myself and started out at 5"7, 156, 18.8%.

Did you mean January 14 to February 11?
You might want to use Flameout fish oils from Biotest, you will only need about 4 capsules a day, instead of other brands which are much less concentrated. And for BCAA I would go with Biotest also, although BCAA are not absolutely necessary to use at all - they are, as Berardi says “extra insurance” against lean body mass loss. But they certainly can’t hurt. I take 5 or 6 when I wake up in the night.
You might also want to get another container of HOT-ROX. 110 caps is just less than what you need for 28 days (4 caps per day) but, more importantly, you will probably want to have some for the transition off of the diet.
By the way, T-Nation ships orders over $150 free. Throw in HOT-ROX, BCAA’s, Flameout, you might be pretty close… can always throw in another Metabolic Drive, have some for the transition off of the V-Diet.
Make sure to read Shugart’s blog coming off the diet, because planning your transition phase off of the diet is key in order to not gain back weight quickly…
PM me if you have any questions and I will be glad to help.
