Other than these small modifications, I am following the diet to a tee.
“Well other than doing the opposite of what the creator of the program told me to, I’m following the diet to a tee.”
No you’re not. I’m tired of people saying this. What you’re doing is a bastardized version of the V-Diet, which can now be best described as a sem-ketogenic diet.
So apparently information that you have read about from a guy who competed in bodybuilding over two decades ago and several health professionals who in likelihood have never heard of the V-Diet is going to sway your opinion over a proven method?
You’re completely disregarding information given by the inventor of the program because of some other stuff you heard about a couple times from people who have no relevance to the diet at all?
You’re whole attitude towards this thing and your blatant diregard for genuine and useful advice from everyone is astonishing. I will say from the bottom of my heart that if you fail miserably I will be the first person in line to tell you “I told you so.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
“2. NEPA Walks: There is no traditional cardio or aerobics on the V-Diet plan. It’s not necessary and actually counterproductive. Excess cardio during a strict diet like this can lead to muscle loss. Instead, you’ll be focusing on NEPA or Non-Exercise Physical Activity.”
"Warning: You will not “make the diet faster” by going for long runs or doing sprints. You will impede recovery, have less energy, and possibly cause your body to catabolize lean muscle tissue, which will in turn wreck your metabolism.
The diet itself does most of the fat burning here and the weight training builds and/or helps you retain the metabolism-boosting muscle. Traditional cardio and aerobics just aren’t necessary while on the V-Diet, and may even be counterproductive."
Instead of accusing the people posting here of being jerks, and writing your posts using aim grammar, try listening to what they say and realizing you’re bastardizing the v-diet and not helping yourself progress forward.
Chris also said that although by changing the diet you can still get nice results, they will never compare to those of a person who follows the diet as it was meant to be followed. Why change something that was perfected over time by professionals?? I’m sure you know better though, afterall, you feel it’s wise to leave the advice so many people tell you unheeded and go ahead and do your own thing.
