Quick note: Be sure to transition slowly here. Don't V-Diet one day and bulk the next. Put a couple of weeks between at least.


I agree. This should take a few weeks.

I would eat just p&f (and green veggies) for a few days and just let your body get used to eating real foods again.

Then add some low-GI carbs to your diet, such as beans/lentils, berries, some fruit (apples, oranges, pears, mango, peaches, or kiwii), melon, or yogurt.

Then you can add your higher-GI carbs and so forth.

I wouldn't just do it all at once.

Good luck!


Also, are you doing a "clean bulk"? Makes a difference on the people replying and what kinds of recipes they give you.


Looks like you're implying "protein-carb meal" so here goes:
uncooked oatmeal, blackberries or blueberries, plain organic yogurt, low carb protein powder

"protein-fat meal"
one pouch salmon pan-sauteed with laughing cow spread cheese and spinach, then covered with a good olive oil or two omega-3 eggs

"pudding" made of 1/4 cup ricotta cheese, 2 Tbsp flax seeds or chopped nuts, 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, low-carb protein powder, and a little water as needed to make it pudding-like

Hmmmm..... anything involving the word sirloin.

Probably chili made with extra-lean beef, tons of tomatoes and beans. I'm also a big fan of fresh pineapple.

As general advice, consider picking up Berardi's Precision Nutrition package, or at the very least his Gourmet Nutrition cookbook. Seriously one of the best investments of my bodybuilding life.


That's really good advice. Don't stray from it. Of course you probably won't be able to consume a large volume of food at any one sitting for a week or so after the V-diet anyway.


Yes, I dont intend to go straight from veolicty Diet to massive eating over a weekend.

I was already actually thinking of doing 1st week 5 meals a day then next week 6 and so forth building it up.

I can also make sure I dont put on to much fat/bulk and remain lean.

Clean bulk? Do you mean like?
Plain Turkey Breats with vegetables (no sauces etc.)

I just wanted to see what everyone else ate, for me eating the same meal over gets a bit boring so I'd like to mix it up a little but still keep it clean and good


What I meant by clean bulk, you aswered above. Bulking by remaining fairly lean. A lot of guys bulk and don't really care about the extra calories, they just eat, A LOT.

And no, I didn't not mean just plain Turkey Breasts etc... Even when eating clean, there is no reason that your food has to be boring.


This would mean you're only 1-2 weeks into the diet - (that is if you're doing the V-diet for 4 weeks)

Perhaps this isn't the best time for you to be thinking too much about recipes, real food etc?


hehe, I always feel hungry on this diet no matter what I do.

but anyways I like planning ahead


What I have for breakfast every morning is as follows:

24oz whole milk
1 cup oatmeal
3 scoops Classic Grow!.

All in the blender. I just pour it in a big ass glass and drink it while I walk to school in the moring. Its quick too.


Protein Shakes:

1/2 cup oats, 1 banana, 1 tablespoon pb, 1 scoop Grow!, 8 oz whole milk, some ice... blend and drink.

any variation without one of the above is good too.

Snacks: (500 kcals or so)
6 oz tuna (oil or water pack)
8 oz drain diced tomatoes (i prefer the ones with chili peppers in them)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
mix all together, heat or leave cold. You can also use this in a buritto form if you get the juice out of the maters.

Almonds - can get expensive to buy these, usually I only eat 1/4 cup at a time.

Favorite carb meal:
linguini at olive garden
