I have a friend who is overweight and weak. I'd say maybe 220 on a 5'10" frame with no lean muscle mass to speak of. He struggles to get 5 good pushups or 10 bodyweight squats. He is interested in the vdiet but I wonder if his limited strength would prevent him from getting the most out of the diet. What do you guys think?
Tropicalshoes has had a lot of success on it and doesn't have as much muscle mass as the typical male non-trainee but she does look to at least have muscular legs, so that, at least, seems encouraging.
