I would say, now simply based on my own experience-no. I actually did the velocity diet last year and felt crappy for some reason. Too much whey prot. gives me a bloated belly thing… it just does not sit well.
So, for some reason the MAG-10 is easier on me and seems to work far better with a good deal less grams of protein overall. I get the 3 during the day, one right after (80 grams total from MAG-10) plus usually 2 chicken breasts (roughly 60-80 grams), and 2 FINiBARs (30 total) then a large whey shake with peanit butter before bed (50 grams).
If you can handle whey well, I would give it a shot for 3 weeks. That should be long enough to tell how you feel and look. My personal ex. with the IF approach (pulse feast version) I noticed within a week. Sure, the initiall loss may have been water, food, etc… but I felt better in the gym also. The MAG-10 is truly amazing for me.
I never have endorsed a product before but I am sold on that coupled with Creatine. I start adding Anacondaa back in next week, I ran out and was replacing my peri workout drink with a cheap combo of creatine, one scoop of MAG-10 and some left over Surge workout fuel I had. You could also try (I am going to just to compare) trying BCAA during the day then break the fast with a during workout drink, then just follow up with whey immediately after, eat etc…
I need to order some BCAA before I start that though. I will give it a shot and post how I feel etc… Should be interesting to compare the two approaches. I need to get measurements pics, etc, to truely track if there is a difference between the two.
My next plan after that is to go on Indigo with the IF. I am really not so keen about the idea of going back to regular eating for 8 weeks though. Ideally I want to try Indigo, pulse feast and eat huge (clean) foods post workout and see what the results are. Sorry for the long response- I write a good deal for work etc… Hope that helps and let us know if you try it with regular whey protein as a pulse.
