I originally posted this in the Beginners Forum where I felt it belonged. Since nobody responded I started looking around and found several V-Diet threads in here and thought it would be more appropriate.
Hello to everyone.
My sister pointed me to this site about a week ago and I’ve been checking it out every day since. Both her and my cousin ordered their shipments for the Velocity Diet last week.
I am wondering if I am suited to this diet. I am currently 6’, 203lbs and in semi-decent shape. I have been to the gym off and on for the past few years, but I haven’t been to the gym at all in the last 8 months. My diet consists of whatever I find around the house, I snack on cookies/crackers/leftovers and anything else I can find. I usually have a home-cooked meal every day when I get home from work, and we have a family dinner on Sunday usually turkey/ham/stew etc. So I eat healthy most of the time, it’s mainly in the evenings after supper that I like to snack. I sometimes try to snack healthy by eating some sugar snap peas or a cup of berries.
My work schedule varies daily. I am an installer/technician for a cable company and I’m usually booked for 3 installs a day (Mon-Sat). These installs can take anywhere from 1 hour - 5 hours. Some days I have a lot of time to kill between installs and I usually just grab a paper to read and have a bite to eat at McDonalds. Other days I have no time to stop and eat because I work until ~9pm.
I believe I can incorporate this diet into my schedule, although I have a couple concerns. I would plan on having a Mon-Wed-Fri workout schedule and would like to get up early in the mornings to complete my workout, but a few articles have said not to do the workout early in the morning. If I can’t make time to workout during the day, is it fine if I go to the gym at 9 or 10 at night and have my last shake afterwards? Probably my biggest concern is about the loose BM. I don’t want to have to be running to and using my customers bathrooms all day, so can I alter the amount of flax/fiber I take in my shakes? I noticed that this problem only affected a handful of people (That posted about it).
I can include pictures if that would help in letting me know if I’m suitable for the diet. I believe I really need the discipline that this diet provides and I want to lose my craving for unhealthy/binge eating.
Here are my numbers and meal plans for the diet, if someone wouldn’t mind glancing over them to see if they add up I would appreciate it.
(10.2 x 203 + 879) x .50 = 1474.80 (Round: 1500)
(10.2 x 203 + 879) x .60 = 1769.76 (Round: 1800)
10 Scoops Metabolic Drive (200lbs, so 1 g of protein per pound = 200g. 20g = 1 scoop)
Breakfast: 2 scoops Metabolic Drive, one serving of milled flax seed, 1 or 2 capsules of HOT-ROX Extreme
Lunch: 2 scoops Metabolic Drive, 2 Flameout capsules
Mid-Afternoon Snack: 2 scoop Metabolic Drive, one Fiber Choice tablet, 1 or 2 capsules of HOT-ROX Extreme
Evening Meal: 2 scoops Metabolic Drive, 2 Flameout capsules
Night Meal: 2 scoop Metabolic Drive, one serving of milled flax seed, one serving of natural peanut butter
Same except Surge Recovery after my workout. (Should I just use Surge Recovery/water in the shake or should I alter one of my meals?)
Largest part of belly: 39.5
Upper Leg: 25
Lower Leg: 16
Upper Arm: 13
Ok so I think I added it up right:
10 Scoops/day x 28 Days = 280/31 = 9.03 = 10 Bottles Metabolic Drive
HOT-ROX 2-4/day x 28 Days = 56-112 = 110/Bottle = 1 Bottle
Flameout 4 x 28 Days = 112 = 90/bottle = 2 Bottles
Surge Recovery 3 x Week x 4 weeks = 12 Servings = 16 Servings/Bottle = 1 Bottle
So 10 Metabolic Drives, 1 HOT-ROX, 2 Flameouts, 1 Surge. I think that sounds good.
Will I be needing BCAA’s or extra fish oil caps at all?
Any help is appreciated. I will be posting and updating a journal when I begin the diet.
