Starting V-Diet

I weigh 177 and my BF is 18%. I checked it with one of those handheld electronic devices, so I don’t know how accurate that reading is.

Being a FFB(probably around 25-30% BF before I started lifing heavy compounds), I want to get around 10% BF before I start bulking. Most of my fat is on my stomach. It looks like a bit of visceral fat, so I want to make sure I get rid of that.

My calculations are:
(10.2 x 177+ 879) x .50 = 1342

(10.2 x 177+ 879) x .60 = 1610

So on my non-workout days I’ll take:

5 shakes; each with 2 scoops (40g of Protein\220 calories)[1100 calories total]

4 Flameout capsules with each shake for 52 cals[260 calories for the total day]

That is already 1360 for the whole day, should I lower the amount of Flameout capsules to make room for the flax meal (haven’t purchased it yet, so I don’t know the amount of cals per serving)?

Is this the particular reason Flameout wasn’t used during the orginal v-diet?

On workout days, I’ll add a serving of Surge and skip the Flameout but still take the flax meal.

The supplements I will be taking are:
HOT-ROX Extreme
TRIBEX
BCAA
ZMA
Multi Vitamin

Is it ok to take Power Drive in the morning?

Thanks for the link. By the way, how many pills of Flameout do you take per shake?

I think you only need 4-6 caps for Flameout for the day. You need some fiber, get the flax seed with each meal in there, it’s important, trust me.

good luck
