First of all I want to say that I am not putting down the V-Diet, I have seen it do amazing things to many members body comp. here on T-Nation. However, what makes the V-Diet better then solid foods with the same macros?
I understand that Surge PWO is good and that a shake for a snack is as well, but I would think that an equal amount of protein in chicken and the equal amount of protein in a shake, the chicken would be the best bet. Especially with the mental aspect of it, making you feel satisfied.
I know the TEF of solid food is much higher then liquids, especially protein. Can someone please explain to me what makes the V-Diet more effective.
Once again, I am not knocking the V-Diet, it's just something I have been wondering.
