So, I basically started lifting in high school along with a lot of basketball. I was in pretty good shape then, around 10-12% bf because I never tightened my diet too strict or tried the bodybuilder lifestyle. Now that I'm in my 5th year of college and ready to graduate, I figure its time to take off all this built-up fat from the last 5 years of unhealthy living.
For those of you unfamiliar with the velocity diet you can find it on t-nation.
I started the diet on Sunday, 1/18 and it will run until 2/15.
My stats when I started were:
38" measured around my bellybutton
Here is my calorie breakdown:
274 Pro - 47 Fat - 16 Carb - 22 Fiber
I'm taking 6 whey/micellar casein 50:50 mix shakes a day, 2-3 hours apart
6 CLA ethyl ester caps from Primordial Performance
6 EFA caps with 410 EPA/240 DHA
2 Fiber Choice Tabs, Sugar free
4 Servings Hodgson's Milled Flax
1 Serving Trader Joe's Natural Cashew Butter
On workout days I consume 5g BCAA preworkout, a PWO shake with 50g WMS 10g BCAA and 25g whey about 20min later.
Beta-Alanine - 1.6g 3x/day
ALCAR - 1g 3x/day
Na-RALA - 200mg 3x/day
Coleus 20% - 100mg 3x/day
Gut Health - 1 cap/day
EGCG - 500mg 2x/day
So far, I'm feeling great. I have more energy than I've ever had. I just started a new semester and haven't been sleeping as much as I should but I still don't even yawn throughout the day.
The only thing I've noticed is that I find it harder to actually fall asleep. It could be from school or the diet, not sure which. I'll also be logging my workouts and giving a general mood/energy report each day. I'll log my weight every sunday and pictures at the end of week 2 and 4.
Any comments are appreciated.
