Where to begin. I started the Velocity Diet yesterday and Meltdown Training today. Right out of the gate I’m experiencing a few problems. The main one being that I started to experience cramping (pretty much everywhere) this morning after the third circuit of Meltdown Training. I have for most of my life been prone to cramping, and have tried to compensate by drinking lots of water. Granted yesterday I fell decently short of that (two liters for the day).
My questions are this: Does carb cutting as prescribed by the Velocity Diet encourage cramping? If it does will simply adding more water fix this, or is it symptomatic of something else? If it means that I have to drink Gatorade or Pedialyte to help curb the cramps won’t this mess up the carb parameters of the diet? Any general suggestions on how to reduce cramping?
Next I was wondering about the Meltdown Training. Due to the demands of this program is not a good fit with the Velocity Diet? I noticed that the routine performed with the Velocity diet was more along the lines of the Waterberry Method. Was this just a matter of wants or does a CW type program mesh better with Velocity?
