    C0rk's Velocity Diet Log


    So I had a separate log for my initial weight-loss regimen (which turned into a recomp regimen) and had some great success with feedback and the actual plan. I went down from 170 to 165 then back up to 170, losing 2% BF in the process and gaining lots of strength. You can find that here: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/weigh...ough-c0rk.html

    So its time to add some novelty and get some kick-ass fat loss going, velocity style:

    6 shakes =
    6 scoops True Protein TEAMSKIP
    8 T Milled Flaxseed
    12 EFA capsules
    Psyillium as Needed
    =============
    ~1300 cal (206g protein)

    Supplements: Creatine, Beta-Alanine, BCAA, Ephedrine/Caffeeine

    On workout days, I'll probably sub Whey for my PWO shake and put 1/4 cup rolled oats in my Pre/PWO shakes. 1 meal/wk cheat.

    Also, some of y'all HCers will scoff @ my next Saturday Cinco de Mayo celebration cheat, where I will be having Mexican food and some booze, but a man's gotta live.

    cool! somehow i've gained back a bit of what weight I lost doing the velocity, although my waist is the same size size as its smallest. so I guess 6lbs up with no waist change isn't all bad

    1 shake down. Man is THIS going to suck, haha.

    So, my usual shakes contained oats, blueberries, milk, etc. This is the first time they are simply water/flax.

    Does 6 oz per shake sound correct? I have an 18 oz mixer cup and 3 scoops of whey with the flax and about 12 oz of water, which fills up the mixer cup. So, is my entire day of meals consisting of two of these cups? Any more water and it seems like it'd be too watery.

    you can add psyllium to add fill feeling, and then use a bit more water. looses some taste at that point of course.

    Well, day 2 down. Not too bad. As I expected from previous dieting experiences, once you cut out high-GI carbs from your diet, you really don't get hunger pangs. Today I woke up not a bit hungry.

    I started @ 172 lbs yesterday. Was 169 today, haha. I know its water, but it's still kinda fun.

    Lifted for the first time today, and I actually went up in some of my lifts. Perhaps that's just the residual glycogen in my muscles, but it was still nice to see gains. I'm still sticking with putting some rolled oats in my Pre/PWO shakes for some workout/recovery carbs, but only about 1/4 cup split between the two.

    I did 20 mins of light jogging/walking after my workout. Am I right in assuming that low-intensity cardio is all that I should be doing to avoid going completely catabolic?

    Are those your cals everyday? You should be higher on workout days.

    I dropped about 15lbs doing it, losing 1" off my neck, more than 2" off my waist & little bit here & there. My arms actually went up in size.

    It goes by fast man...just stick to it & grind it out. I did all 28 days pretty strict using whey & casein from allthewhey. I also purchased some Teamskip just for a different flavor & the covenience of using 1 tub. Honestly it wasn't all that hard to do. I'm on week 1 of the transition back to solid food (1 solid meal/day)...food seriously never, ever tasted so good.

    I may do another 2~3 week run later in the summer after doing some normal cutting for the next couple months.

    I noticed that by week 3 some of my lifts dropped whereas some others improved...go figure. After adding some calories & eating some normal food my workouts are rapidly improving.

    Week 1 is easy, week 2 is hard, 3 is hard (but not as bad as 2), week 4 is easy.

    A good fat burner (I used Scorch & then Recreate) helps with the workouts & energy levels.

    Have fun!

    Yes, those are my daily calories, though I'm adding in 1/4 cup of rolled oats on workout days. Are you saying I should add more? Maybe a cup, split up between Pre/PWO ?

    I don't think I plan on going for the full 4 weeks, but who knows. I'd like to see my results after 2 weeks and, perhaps, continue as long as I don't feel like I'm plateauing.

    Yeah, as EasyEJL mentioned. If you want semi-follow the way it was done on T-nation up your cals on workout days.

    At 172 lbs you should be 1,300 non-workout & 1580~1600 on workout days.

    You could up your protein & add more PWO carbs on workout days for the extra 300 cals. I used maltodextrin & dextrose (.5sc of each)...but I don't see why rolled oats wouldn't work if youre getting enough cals/carbs from it. Shugart suggested no more than 100gr carbs on workout days.

    Well, my original thought was to add the oats PWO, but on another thread I started, someone recommended to not add in extra carbs.

    That's what I get for believing everything on the internet!

    where can I find this diet. YOu know when vitamins were first being founded for supplementation they were used on rats. The scientist (i dont remember his name) fed them a completely supplemental diet. They died shortly after. He retried the experiment this time adding milk to their diets and they all grew and lived healthily. How true this is for humans I do not know but it may not be as bad as we thought or it maybe just as bad. After all we are using milk for our shakes right?

    No milk in these shakes. Just protein powder, water, flax, and flavoring!

    Just google "t-nation" and "velocity diet". You should be able to find them. I'm @ work right now so I don't have the link.

    28 days + a two week transition period & it's not that bad for you. IMO people do much more damage to their body with highly processed junk food.

    Is it a little extreme? Maybe...but I found the mental challenge & discipline I gained worthwhile. You get adequate protein & healthy carbs & fats from flax/fish oil. Multi-vitamins should already be a staple in anyones diet.

    C0rk, make sure & take before/after pics & measurements. You should be pleased with the difference if you stick to it.

    Also...if you feel the need to chew, try the V-Diet cookie/muffin, they're actually pretty stinking good!

    I didn't use Metabolic Drive so I sub’d w/ my own stuff.

    Here are the original recipes I found:

    Chocolate brownie
    2 scoops Chocolate Metabolic Drive
    1 serving (2 tbsp) flax meal
    1 tbsp natural peanut butter
    1/4 cup water

    Banana bread
    2 scoops banana Metabolic Drive
    1 serving (2 tbsp) flax meal
    1 tbsp natural peanut butter
    1/4 cup water

    Vanilla cinnamon
    2 scoops vanilla Metabolic Drive
    1 serving (2 tbsp) flax meal
    1 tbsp coconut oil (not on the VDiet, but can be sub’d for NPB)
    1 tbsp cinnamon
    1/4 cup water

    For any of the flavors:
    Mix all ingredients.
    Bake for about 8 minutes at 325 F.

    Cook these in a mini-muffin tin (each cup holds 1.5 tbsp).
    Each batch makes 6 mini-muffins.

    I sorta made the first one with the following:
    • 1sc of ATW choco whey
    • 1sc of ATW choco casein
    • 1 tbsp NPB
    • 2 tbsp Flax
    • 1/4 ~ 1/2 cup H20 (adjust for consistency…sorta want a batter)


    I didn’t have a muffin tin, so I just took a round cake pan & did 6 cookie shapes. 8 minutes wasn’t long enough & they didn’t cook in the middle. I nuke’d them for a minute & that helped, but next time I have to cook them longer.

    I think they’d be better w/ chocolate Teamskip protein or just ATW whey. ATW’s choco casein doesn’t have the greatest flavor. Nice little alternative to a protein shake. Next time I may try them with a little splenda or cinnamon mixed in.

    Whoa...I didn't realize I could turn the shakes into actual food, heh. Isn't the peanut butter "cheating" though?

    Also, I already posted before pics (about 2 months) ago before I started my recomp in another thread:

    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/weigh...ough-c0rk.html

    so I'll just compare my results after the VD to those. I've already lost 4 pounds so I'd just as soon compare to my original start as opposed to right now.

    Nope! PB (natural) is perfectly acceptable on the V-Diet. Just keep track of your cals/fats for the day. I use it in my last shake of the day

    Okay, I lied.

    Last night I was hungry and this morning I woke up hungry. Not starving, mind you, but enough that I wanted something more than a shake...like a cheeseburger.

    Do you think that I should add another shake or something? Just try taking BCAA before bed? Today I'm going to bump up my cals with some nice rolled oats, cuz' its a WO day, so maybe that will be the difference maker. Still, I can't wait for my mexican fiesta on Saturday, haha.

    FWIW, I weighted in @ 166 this morning. 6 lbs in 3 days...reminds me of my wrestling days!

    malodextrin and dextrose have no place on a weight loss regimen. (dextrose=insulin spike) The body cannot burn fat when insulin is turned on. Furthermore simple carbs will give you hunger pains. If you must add carbs rolled oats is the much better option. Again dextrose PWO is for gaining/maintaining muscle and people prone to putting on fat should not even touch it.

    I just bought some more psyillium (ran out a few days ago) so I'll try putting more of that in my shakes and see if that helps.

    I'm definitely steering clear of malodextrin and other simple sugars, for now. In general, I don't really think I would take it anyway cuz I'm an endo, but certainly not during this diet.

    Well, hopefully I can make it through today and go another week. I've noticed that I've gotten dizzy a few times when I've gotten up from bed or a chair and I'm thinking that it might be from doing this stupid diet.

    Since I'm going to have a whole meal for dinner, I'll see how I feel tomorrow. If I have a dizzy spell after that, then I'm going to stop.

    Weighed in @ 165 today (same as yesterday). It sucks not losing a couple pounds a day anymore, haha.

    So I did a lot of damage to my body last night in the celebration of "the victory of an ill-equipped Mexican army fending off a large invading French force at the Battle of Puebla" as well as the Flyers' victory over Les Habitants. Whole food never tasted so good, haha. Woke up hungover as hell this morning and went to Dunkin Donuts for a breakfast sandwich hangover cure, haha.

    Will reconvene the velocity diet this afternoon.

    cork likes to party! The dizziness you experienced can be diminished with rolled oats. Whenever you feel dizzy or hypo just have some complex carbs and you'll feel better almost instsantly.

    Yeah, it seems like the dizziness has gone away, so it's definitely cuz' of the diet. I'll try the carbs thing next time to see if it works.

    I really hope I gained back more water weight than usual from hydrating myself all-day yesterday...because I weighed in @ 170 this morning, haha. That pretty much wiped out every thing from last week.

    Gonna give myself a few days back on the diet to see if its just my body getting itself righted after my Saturday night bender...I can't see one night canceling out my gains for a whole week of the v-diet.

    One night won't kill ya...most of that gain will be water. Just keep drinking more water...you'll get rid of it again. Keep up the good work C0rk.

    Tho the above poster mentioned not using malto/dex PWO, I was still able to lose 15 lbs on the V-diet. I would definitely consider myself an endo as well. I'm not saying they're the best PWO carb on this diet, but I still lost a good amount of fat using them.

    However my fat loss seemed to slow down dramatically after the 3rd week. I'm now into my second week of the transition phase (2 solid meals/day)...haven't gained back any weight this week, but haven't lost either...which is dissapointing.

    Could it be the malto/dex? What would be a better PWO carb option besides rolled oats? I'm at 200 now & my goal is 180~185.

    I don't thinik malto/dex is EVER necessary for an endo. We put on weight enough as it is...we don't need that malto/dex insulin spike to help us.

    Any Low-GI carb is fine, even vegetables, though oats are cheap, easy to fix up/grind/chug w/e.

    Also, if you're back up to two solid meals/day and get enough carbs, you might want to try some HITT. That's supposedly even better than low-intensity cardio @ long-term fat loss.
