I started doing something like the V-Diet Lite about 2 weeks ago(shake in the morning and night). I think Im on the right track- though any criticism is welcome. Currently I weigh 170. I estimate I need to lose about 10 pounds or so of fat(calipers tell me Im at 13-14% bf/bodyfat scale says 18%). Basically I want to burn the fat and not lose the muscle I have.
I just started taking HOT-ROX today.
A food log for what I eat is being kept at Fitday
Counting calories is a pain in the ass and not something Ive ever done before- but it has kept me in check.
On a non-workout day I get about 1500 calories- 165g Protein, 60g~ carbs(18~ which is Fiber), 67g~ fat. A typical day looks like:
7am 2 scoops Low-Carb Metabolic Drive
10am salmon on 1 peice of double fiber bread- 1oz raw almonds
1pm 4.5oz chicken breast with 3 servings of green veggies
4pm turkey breast
6pm 1oz raw almonds
8pm 2 scoop of Low-Carb Metabolic Drive
4-6 fish oil tablets a day.
(maybe 12oz of black coffee throughout the day)
On workout days I get about 1700 calories.
Post workout: 8oz chocolate milk with halfscoop of Low-Carb Metabolic Drive (maybe switch to fruit for a cleaner carb?)
For my training I lift heavy for 3 days a week. I havent done any cardio as my calorie intake is very low. At first I did some lactate-inducing training that Christian Thibaudeau wrote
Though it doesnt feel like Im taking in enough calories to sustain lactate-inducing type of training.
Ive have a few cheat days- but nothing I haven’t bounced back from(last sat was fun!). It gets a bit tough but I’m holding up well.
Any critics/suggestions? Thanks!
