Posted this in the V-Diet Support thread, but no replies yet…
End of day 5, down 3lbs. Have had 2 Grow! bars this week, but not one cheat. I’ve been feeling out of sorts, cranky and tired since yesterday, a little light-headed and weak at times, too. A little less oomph in my workouts, but not too bad. Is this normal? Do I need to suck it up for a couple of days and it will pass? Will I feel like this for the duration of the diet? I’ve never done an intense low-carb diet like this before and don’t know what to think.
I think I “crunched the numbers” right, but maybe I’m off? I started at 136lbs, here’s my daily intake (usually in 5 shakes):
7 scoops Low-Carb Grow!
6 Tbsp ground flax seeds
2 Tsp fish oil supp
1 Tsp fiber supp
152gP/46gC/40gF and 19g fiber - 1160 calories
On workout days I substitute 1.5 scoops of Surge for 1 scoop of Grow!
151gP/80gC/40gF - 1280 calories
I wanted to do just 2 weeks of the V-Diet to get down to 125-130lbs, but am thinking of switching to the one-meal-a-day option if I continue to feel lousy. Which meal is best to have real food? First meal of the day? Preworkout? Post Surge?
I am taking HOT-ROX and drinking 3L of water a day. I would really appreciate some advice. Thanks!
