i am going to be losing 45lbs… i know, i got out of shape… i was injured and used food and beer (i live in belgium) to comfort me… i usually “cut” 15lbs in a couple of days but i wanted to be healthier…
i figure that the v-diet is a healthy alternative to the “usual” way that i lose weight (starvation)… if i do this for a month, i have another 2 to recoup any strength or endurance loss… i can train light and then pick it up after the v-diet
any others out there that have opinions?[/quote]
If you got 45 lbs to go then I would say go for it. Just make sure you transition off it smoothly. Given that you will still be 6-8 weeks out after you are done and its not your first fight I would think you would be ok. Certainly better than starving yourself.
I am actually in a similar situation to you. Got hurt, had surgery and slacked off. Metabolism crashed and I blew up almost 50 pounds. Not that I mind rolling and sparring with heavyweights, just wish their was a freaking height limit.
