I'm at the tail end of my velocity diet. I'm only doing it for 4 weeks though. I posted a before, and this weekend I'll post my after.
But anyway, I hate this diet. But it works. It sucks because at my work, every other monday they order pizza for meetings, and every friday we order lunch from applebee's etc. So, I drink my shake, and everyone laughs and enjoys their ribs, pizza, what have you.
I just miss the actual eating I think.
We had friends over one night, and my wife had snacks out, and I grabbed a Triscut unknowingly and took a bite. Then I caught myself and yelled..."What the hell am I doing?" The wife looked at me like I was crazy, but to me, it was like I had just stole something.
I'm drinking around 6 shakes a day, somedays 5, if I can't stand to have another. I'm taking HOT-ROX, gang of flax, fish, salmon oils, Animalpak and a centrum multi vitamin, green tea pills.....am i forgetting anything? I have noticed that instead of the usual chocolate or vanilla, it's nice to grab an isopure for a bit of change. it's kind of like a little treat and it's like drinking koolaid instead of the usual. i've been getting around 400 gms of protein a day to try and keep my muscle. I have noticed that my energy has gone down some. So, I have to jack myself to workout sometimes. But I workout in the evenings also, around 7:30 or 8:00. I've been jumping a lot of rope, doing the renegade rope training....YIKES! check that out if you want a kick in the ass.
I know I'm only doing 4 weeks worth, but I have gone from 225 lbs and 24% bf, to 215 and 15%. So, for me it is working, and I'm starting to see my abs again!
I wish you luck....and hang on. After week 1, it's like a way of life that you are used to. But I am looking forward to a nice meal Saturday evening!
Oh yeah, I did cheat and eat a lean steak with vegetables on valentines night with the wife. And if you've read it...the statement is RIGHT ..."After the velocity diet, brocoli tastes like pu**y"
