V-Diet - Numbers and Cardio

I’m starting up the V-Diet, and I just wanted to double check my numbers before I place my order.

Weight = 190lbs

Target Workout days = 1700 cals
(5 Metabolic Drive shakes, 2 scoops each = 1100 cals)
(1 serving Post workout Surge = 340 cals)
(2 servings Flax seeds = 180 cals)
(1 serving Flameout = 52 cals)
(TOTAL WORKOUT DAY CALS = 1672 cals)

Target Non-Workout days = 1400 cals
(Same as above, but without the Surge, and with an extra serving of Flax)
(TOTAL NON-WORKOUT DAY = 1422 cals)

Does this look right?

Also, regarding exercise, I was thinking about kickboxing 2x a week, in addition to lifting 3x a week. Could I replace the daily walking with kickboxing 2x a week, or is the frequent low intensity cardio required? I’d be willing to walk daily, but I’d rather kickbox.

Numbers look about right on quick glance.

Try the NEPA walks only on non-kickboxing day, say 3-4 times per week.

Back off the kickboxing before dropping the walks if you feel the need. Remember, if you chase two rabbits, both will escape. Fat loss first on the V-Diet; kickboxing takes a backseat for 28 days ideally.

After 28 days you’ll be amazed at how the fat loss improves your sport.
