in on this. why only 1500 cals/day though?
Well, I've gotten fat. too fat. fat enough to get irritated about it. Last September I went and did the Savage Race, and badly pulled my calf. Before that, its been more than 5 years since I took a break of over 2 weeks, or had a problem establishing consistency. Since then however, what started as a 1 week break went to 2 then 3. And I haven't gotten back into a normal swing of regular workouts again since. I've probably been to the gym less than 4 times a month since. And its hurt. In that time I've gained around 12-13 lbs, and they aren't good pounds. So now its time for a change.
WHOOPS left this out initially. I'm 5'10" currently weighing in at 214lbs and 45 years old.
I'm back from vacation and ready to start again. Its time to get back to how I looked this time last year at the very least. So in comes 2.0 in the perfect timing to help me do so.
The diet - I've been eating as intermittent fasting, with limited carbs, high protein, high fat. Not quite ketogenic, most carbs from fruits and some from rice, beans, quinoa with also the protein all coming from solid foods and dairy with next to no protein shakes. However, since I'm looking to really fat loss for this log i'm moving to doing the velocity diet. If you aren't familiar its pretty much a liquid only protein only diet. Some amount of healthy fats added, and basically fully ketogenic as no carbs other than the trace in protein powders. I may add some additional veggies in, but thats all. Shooting for 1500 calories a day total.
The workouts - My plan is to try and hit minimally 4 days a week, but hopefully 5 or 6. Workout structure will be 20 reps done as rest pause with my 10rm done as full body. So deadlifts, squats of some sort, overhead press, rows, with variations on the specifics of what type of overhead press, row etc. Plan is to do that tuesday, thursday and saturday. Each of those days intention is to do 10-20 minutes of moderate intensity cardio. The remaining days will be cardio days, with depending on my schedule either 20 minutes of high intensity to 45 minutes of moderate intensity on the elliptical.
Other supplements - basically , multivitamin, joint support and thats it. I've found that using a preworkout along with sometimes bothers my stomach, so i'm just going to avoid preworkouts. May take just caffeine.
And here's the pics, man do I look fat.

just as sort of the nutritional example from day 1, so far I've had 2 shakes of each around 50g protein for 100g, around 10g carbs each for 20g and maybe 4g fats. besides that I had 1 cucumber with salt free greek seasoning (has potassium in it instead) and 3 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil.
I hope you will have a good log. I know a person who on the Raspberry Ketones had a loss of an area around 17LB. Good Luck to you...
well I woke up late and didn't have enough time to get to the gym, as is tradition . Weight is down 2lbs already, but that's all just digestive tract with switching from solid food to a barely above starvation liquid diet. I've noticed two things so far that are pretty nice about DCP 2.0. For one, the appetite suppression is really good, surprisingly good. The original had a little appetite suppression but on an empty stomach 2.0 clips appetite for a good 3-4 hours. The second thing I noticed is that even though I didn't increase water intake, I'm getting no cramping. That was the only downside of original DCP that i'd moderately frequently get cramps, mostly in my foot arches. I'm going to try and go ride the bike outside today during my lunch break to at least get cardio in, as tonight is pool league again so I can't hit the gym in the evening either.
well wheeeeew. So far, the doses of DCP didn't have me all that hot feeling. Maybe a little warm, but nothing extravagant. Second dose today? I thought the AC in my house blew out. Thermostat says its 73, feels more like 85 in here. I'm going to need to take another shower later.
I keep hearing more and more about sweating even at rest. I like it!
so far/so good.
