I will only be able to use a low calorie diet for 2 weeks with one week in between. This is due to vacations. The rest of my time will be filled up with football training, wrestling, speed development 5 days a week hence I need a sufficient amount of calories.
Would it even be worth it to use the v-diet 1 week on, 1 week off, 1 week on? I understand that I will lose and gain glycogen and water quickly.
Why bother with the v-diet at all?
Football, wrestling and speed work and you want to radically reduce your calories to lose weight?
You’ll end up in the hospital, man…and probably be cut from your teams for shitty performance.
Sorry to be so blunt, but given your sports training, the v-diet is the LAST thing i would suggest doing.
If you’re just trying to tighten up or get a little leaner…i would say just do some simple things like cleaning up carb sources, fat sources…etc.
For carbs, stick to mostly fruits, veggies and keep whole grains for around the time of your training sessions or in the early half of the day.
What are your ultimate goals for nutrition?
Why were you considering the v-diet at all?
