I started the velocity diet yesterday. Here I intend on logging my progress as I go through this 28-day journey.
Yesterday kicked my ass. From what I’d read of the initial thread, I thought it would be a walk in the park. I figured Micellar casein prevented hunger, tasted like wedding cake… you know, things like that. It turns out that, while many of the difficulties involved in the initial ‘fat-fast’ have been corrected, it’s apparently still quite a trial to go through.
Started: 230 lbs, 24% bodyfat.
Goal: 210lbs, 14% bodyfat.
I intend on losing 20 lbs of fat in 28 days.
I’ll post pics later.
I think a lot of the uncomfortability is that I’ve never taken this many supplements before. I’ve used creatine, and I sparingly use Spike to study for tests, but HOT-ROX is a completely new sensation, especially the double dose. The Metabolic Drive tastes… good… but it always leaves this shitty aftertaste. It’s not something I really look forward to eating/drinking. Even Surge seems to taste different than when I was eating solid food.
My first strength workout yesterday was seriously lagging. I had to drop a set from each of the four exercises I worked (bench press, back squat, snatch-grip deadlift and decline situp). My muscles just didn’t bounce back or recover in-workout the way they usually do. I guess it has to do with the reduced carbs/calorie total. That, and my old intensity-headache came back, which didn’t help.
Today starts day 2. I’m in for a long February.
Hopefully, though, I’ll emerge on the other side more ripped than I’ve ever been in my life. So I’m excited too.
