Velocity Diet To 10/10 Transformation
Hey guys i just finished a modified short v-diet. Lost about 11 pounds in two weeks. I will be starting the typical transition phase today (1/28/07). I plan on doing the transition phase for six days, adding around 150 to 200 calories a day, coming from carbs (oatmeal, whole wheat, pumpkin etc.). I then plan on starting Chad Waterbury's 10/10 transformation. I think the psychological food behavioral changes experienced by the velocity diet would be a great way to start the 10/10 transformation, since it appears to be a fairly simple diet. I plan on logging my experience on the 10/10 transformation. Please feel free to leave feedback, comments, etc.
Unfortunately, I did not take a before picture of the Velocity diet, but i did make note of my measurements:
Before Velocity Diet:
Weight: 179 lbs.
Body Fat percentage: 13%
Circum. of Belly: 31.5 inches
Thigh Left/Right: 25/25.25 inches
Calves Left/Right: 16/16 inches
Chest-Nipple Line: 41 inches
Upper Abs: 34.5 inches
Hips-Circum. of Glutes: 39.5 inches
Shoulders: 48 inches
Upper Arm Left/Right: 14.75/14.75 inches
Neck: 16.25 inches
After 2 week Velocity Diet:
Weight: 168 lbs.
Body Fat percentage: 10.5%
Circum. of Belly: 30.25 inches
Thigh Left/Right: 24.25/24.5 inches
Calves Left/Right: 15.75/15.5 inches
Chest-Nipple Line: 40 inches
Hips-Circum. of Glutes: 38.5
Shoulders: 48 inches
Upper Arm Left/Right: 14.5/14.5 inches
Neck: 15.25 inches
I plan on taking a photo before the 10/10 transformation. Again, if you have any feed back tell me what you think!

Why only 2 weeks of the V-Diet?
- 01-28-2008, 12:14 PM
didn't feel like I had to lose to much body fat, also i didn't want my lifts to suffer too much, i did the v-diet more for the craving changes for the most part, but im quite happy with the results
Also, anybody have any suggestions for supplements, in addition to what Waterbury suggests?
I was thinking 10 grams of beta alanine,
BCAA through out the day
5 grams of creatine mono.

I'm doing a 2 week phase also, mainly because I don't have time to do a 4 weeker quite yet. Today is day 2.
I've been going heavy on the BCAA's, and fiber pills.

You can see some nice results in 2 weeks.
If you do 4 weeks straight, progress slows quite a bit after the first 2 weeks. To me I like a cheat day after week two of pizza, burgers, etc to boost the metabolism. That will boost fat loss again, especially if you do a lot of cardio and fat loss supplements on the 1 or 2 days after the cheat day.
01-28-2008, 07:08 PM
Honestly, I don't need a cheat day. I just wish I could eat a ton of spinach or something. Instead I feel sick to my stomach with all the liquids and powders and pills. This may be where the radical diet is superior.
01-28-2008, 07:17 PM
You ARE using a 50/50 whey/micellar casein blend, right? What percentage of fat?
And oh, one tip: V-8!! potassium and sodium, which are notably absent in the V-Diet. Give it a shot it may boost your energy and endurance. It sure did for me.
Also the cheat isn't a psychological thing. Pizza, burgers, ice cream, etc for a day really will help the fat loss process after the first 2 weeks.

i am planning on starting v-diet next week.
01-29-2008, 03:14 PM
The problem I've had with the v-diet is feeling sick to my stomach.
It would be so much easier to keep the calories and macro's the same if I could eat whole foods. I'm not sure what benefit liquids have over solids.

I would be concerned if you are hating it on day 2. Usually week 2 is when it starts to suck, then it gets easier.
01-29-2008, 07:14 PM
I have my calander marked for when week two ends. I think this cheat DAY will be worth the 2 weeks of straight shakes.
01-29-2008, 07:24 PM
anyone tried it with a whole food meal each day? like chicken and broccoli or something?
01-29-2008, 07:32 PM
I think Shugart calls it the 'V-Diet Lite'. Search T-Nation for it, while it can be effective, you don't get the 'food changes' that are associated with the real V-Diet.
My 'cheat' was a bowl of oatmeal and frozen blueberries.

Is there a write up over at T-nation or pdf on it. I'd like to give it a try....maybe. I'd have to read it first

Search for V-Diet and only 'articles' not the entire site and you will get more than enough info on it.

one of his sugggestions for meal replacement is 3 eggs w/veggies, comes out to about what a shake would be, calorie-wise
01-29-2008, 11:32 PM
A cheat day of high fat, high carb foods will jack your metabolism back up. If you want to continue to cut, I'd recommend going right back to a cutting diet or V diet right after the cheat and you should see some very nice results from that cheat day. But don't go low fat, seriously. Pizza, Whoppers, ice cream...all great for the cheat day to be effective.

The Solid-Meal-Per-Day Option
The most frequently asked question I'm getting is, "Can I eat one solid meal a day and still lose fat quickly?" Those asking have a variety of motives. Some say they'll just stick to the diet better with a solid meal option; others want a solid meal because they want to eat dinner with their families. And of course a few think the diet is just plain nuts, but they believe it'll be okay with a single solid meal a day.
Yes, a single solid meal Velocity Diet can work, just be aware of the drawbacks:
• The Velocity Diet is appealing because of its simplicity. Once you figure our your daily calories, you just drink shakes all day. No food log, no reading labels, no choices to make. If you add a solid meal in every day, you'll have to count the calories and adjust your shake intake. This will take a little extra time and require you to keep a food log.
• The Velocity Diet is strict, but that very severity makes it successful. Again, there are no choices to make. You either do it or you don't. Many dieters thrive under stringent rules. Adding a solid meal lessens this strictness. Some people may not be able to handle the freedom of a solid meal. Their discipline could wane and the single healthy meal could turn into an all-you-can-eat buffet.
But if you think the positives outweigh the negatives, then here are my recommendations for the single solid meal option:
1) You've figured out your calorie ranges by using the formula in Part I. Let's say your non-training day limit is 1500 calories. You'll need to figure out how many total meals you're going to consume per day.
Now, two scoops of Low-Carb Grow! plus a serving of milled flax seeds is 310 calories. Drink three of those per day and that totals 930 calories. But you'll also be consuming some fish oil capsules on this day, probably around 200 calories' worth. So that's 1130 total, leaving you 370 calories to go for your solid meal.
Eat more or less than that for your solid meal and you'll have to adjust everything else. And if that solid meal contains a lot of fiber or healthy fats, then maybe you won't need all those fish and flax supplements, meaning you'll again have to recalculate your shakes and their content. (See, gets tricky, huh?)
2) The solid meal can be had any time of the day, whatever fits your needs and schedule. However, breakfast is the ideal time because a larger, solid breakfast makes many people more satiated throughout the day and lessens the desire to overeat at night.
I'd also be a little wary of making the last meal of the day your solid meal. After drinking shakes all day, even satiating ones, the temptation to overdo this solid meal could be great. It could be psychologically helpful to know your last meal of the day is a pre-planned shake, no choice about it.
3) Here are some solid meal ideas:
Grilled chicken breast and small salad
Grilled salmon and small serving of broccoli
Small fajita made with lean steak and low carb tortilla
Tuna in lettuce wraps with a couple of strawberries
In short, eat some protein and keep the carbs fibrous and under control. The daily solid meal option can be a success if you keep your caloric intake within the range provided and keep the carbs under 100 grams per day. It'll take a little more thought and work compared to the one-solid-meal-per-week option, but you can still lose fat rapidly. Many are already trying it and hopefully they'll keep us updated on the forum.
Then yes I would agree with you, but he has also said in countless forum posts 'Don't f*ck with it', 'You won't see the 'taste/behavioral changes' that V-Dieters will', 'That's not the diet I outlined' , etc.
