Long time lurker. First time poster.
I completed the Velocity Diet followed by 2 weeks of tapering off the diet completed by August 4, 2007. It wasn't the first time I'd done the diet. And again made very good progress on it coupled with CW's 10x3 for Fat Loss.
On August 4, I went on vacation. For 3 weeks, I did no exercise. My sleeping pattern was all over the place. I ate horribly. Lots of eating out with appetizers, main course, and deserts. I even ate cookies and sweets at ungodly hours. No exercise. Low physical exertion.
Returning home, I expected the worst. To my surprise I've dropped an additional 4lbs and 1" from my waist. Strength is down but not drastically so and all other measurements are negligible compared to pre-vacation.
Before the Velocity Diet, I'd been doing a low carbohydrate, high protein, medium fat diet. I would have thought that due to my low carbohydrate diet, that 3 weeks of pretty much SUPER CARB diet + no exercise = me looking like the Pillsbury Doughboy.
Instead I'm now at the lowest weight I've been since high school (81kg) with the smallest waistline I've had since...well who knows (31").
I'd just like to know the science of what happened.
