Velocity Diet, Meat Diet?

Hello,

I’ve did the Velocity diet for 2 weeks, but what I’ve found is that whey protein digests too fast for me. I end up with diarrhea all the time.

I did better when I had just plain beef. It stayed with me and I lost the weight.

I don’t know if any of you have problems with whey protein. I’ve found that if I don’t consume more than 40g per day I’m OK. Anything more gives me those nasty side effects.

Chicken breasts don’t do it for me either. I need a well rounded approach to protein intake.

Specifically, I need protein with higher purine levels like beef, bison, and venison. Higher purine foods take more time for your body to digest.

Lean Beef and Venison are primary
Eggs (with some yolks removed)
Fish
Chicken
Finally Whey only after workouts

Anyhow, let me know if others have the same issues with whey. We could start our own M-Diet (Meat Diet)

This is why it’s not recommended to use straight whey protein with the Velocity Diet.

Are you using Metabolic Drive from T-Nation? Thats what the diet was designed with and it has been well documented (by dozens of users like yourself) that when you use other proteins (especially whey-only) that the diet just doesnt work.

Whey only protein digest faster than Metabolic Drive, which is a blend of Whey and Casein (specifically Micellar Casein) so it is absorbed much slower, keeping you full until your next shake.

Also, the V-Diet takes a few days to get used to, and after day 5 or so hunger isnt really an issue, especially if you are using HOT-ROX.
