Well buoy, i am currently following the anabolic diet and am not seeing great results after 2 weeks [lost 2 lbs]. Might be my body type or maybe my body hasn't exited the carb-fuelled stage yet.
I decided to do the V-diet but thought buying enough protein shakes to loose 20 lbs of fat was far too expensive and i had to think up an alterior method to lean out. Because i am on the anabolic diet [t-dawg 2.0 etc] i am frequently eating tuna and other meats, and noticed that fish, especially tuna, contains high protein and absolutely no carbs!
Some other meats contain a few carbs or trace amounts, but i thought that what thev-diet was trying to acheive was 0 carbs and high protein to keep LBM. Since tuna contained no carbs and moderate protein i thought this could be a cheap [almost superior (- does not contain as much protein)] alternative.
There is no real reason to cut really fast, it is just those of us that want to are either impatiant or experimenting. I, unfortunately, am in the middle so this maybe a disasterous experiment and i may not loose weight fast but i can certainly see why i should, in comparison with velocity!
Hope this answers your questions
And for anyone interested i have had 170g of protein and 12g of carbs today on the anabolic diet! Quite close to what i will be doing in my experiment =)
