Seeing both Chris Shugart and Joel Marion online, and sitting here on the first day of my second run on the V-Diet, I can’t help but wonder if I’m making the right choice here. Here is one guy who expects me to go from 20% BF to single digit, without a single cheat meal, and another who has made up a whole diet revolving around a weekly cheatmeal. Now, pardon my french, but why the hell am I choosing the V-Diet?
I mean, if it’s really possible to lose weight with a weekly cheat day, why would anyone go low-carb, low-calorie for weeks on end… Personally, I didn’t experience any taste changes on the V-Diet the first time, I enjoyed fish, meat and veggies before the diet, and still do. I also like to indulge in something sugary once in a while. I doubt that will ever change. Shugart would like people to never cheat at all, it seems. Does anybody here actually eat that clean?
Now, being a FFB myself, I feel more inclined to listen to Chris Shugart, who has been there and done that… but If Cheat to Lose actually works… well, it seems far more enjoyable.
Has anyone here experience with both these approaches to fatloss?
