    Hello Bodybuilding community,

    Welcome to my Velocity DietLog – My guide to dropping body fat and getting LEAN!
    I have read a lot about the V-diet(Velocity diet) by T-Nation and I am fully aware of the controversial views upon a 'shake only' diet. I know full well that:

    a) I will get all the nutrients/minerals I need to function in a daily basis.
    b) I will get enough protein to keep mass
    c) it is a brutal way of losing body fat
    d) the whole 'when you get off the diet' arguments. Tome it is total BS, that is my own opinion, so shoot me down as you will.

    Goals for the Velocity Diet:
    1) Drop Body-Fat to below 12%
    2) Offset bad eating habits/cravings
    3) I have found that not many Velocity Diet Logs have been completed – so this one will be.

    Training: (5 day split – 10 Minutes HIIT at the start and Abs at the end)

    Monday - Chest
    Tuesday - Back
    Wednesday - Legs
    Thursday - Shoulders
    Friday - Arms
    Saturday -off
    Sunday - off

    Current Strength; (hoping to not lose any strength during the 28 days)
    Bench (DBs) - 50kg each arm.
    Weighted Pull Ups - 16kg- 8,6,5 reps
    Squats - 120kg
    Military Press - 65kg
    Weighted Dips - 35 kg - 3x8
    Now that is a short description of what I am doing training wise, and why I have decided to do the Velocity Diet.

    Nutrition;T-nations Biotest supplements cost a staggering $423, and I have got the equivalents of their products. It cost me £120 (pounds) to get similar products. (20% OFF)

    The following is what I have bought: (photo attached)

    -Flax Seed Powder (soluble and insoluble fiber - essential fatty acids)
    -L Leucine (Essential amino acid - 500g
    -Omega 3 Liquid -Thermopure(caffeine supplement)
    -Inulin (fibre supplement)
    -Peanut Butter
    -Micellar Casein (Slow release protein)
    -Superfood XS (greens, antioxidants, veggies etc)
    The new version of Velocity Diet allows me to have one 'Healthy Solid Meal'- 1 cup of Quinoa, 1 Chicken breast and 1 cup of green vegetables.

    I will consume 5 shakes a day. 8am, 11am, 2pm, 5pm, HSM - 8PM, 11pm (along with one spoonful of peanut butter).

    My daily macros will be:

    • Protein: 190g
    • Carbs: 144g
    • Calories: 1551
    • Fat: 29g

    I will be posting my results, measurements, and photos, during and at the end.

    Hope to get some support during the diet,alongside motivating others to follow in my footsteps.

    Ahaa, liking it...

    I can assure you, there will be no failing here.

    I have already tested the shakes - and they are absolutely disgusting. I did add the Omega 3 oil to it, so I shall be consuming that separately.

    I have tried the Healthy Solid Meal (HSM) - I have uploaded a picture showing exactly how delicious it is.

    Day 2:

    No training today - shakes have been good.

    I am adding Raw CACAO to some of my shakes as the taste is somewhat stall, all my products from 'myprotein' are unflavoured - would not recommend this to someone trying it.

    "Cacao is the raw, unprocessed chocolate superfood on everyone's lips. Unlike your regular chocolate bar (or easter egg), raw cacao is supercharged with magnesium and flavonoids, which makes it good for you inside and out"

    I have felt rather lethargic today as my body is adjusting.

    I would not recommend the Omega 3 Liquid either - I should have used the capsules which I already have. It does not taste nice at all - but the strawberry hint does help the liquid.

    So, you are getting simple carbohydrates, and let them digest so quickly. The simple carbohydrates don't even carry any other nutrients. They are good as a quick energy source. You have Monosaccharides carbs/simple sugars with your banana and the sugar cube. I will get my complex bad boys. See what would work better.

    You take your whey protein and let your body digest it quicker than you drink it. I will let my casein protein break down slowly for added benefits.

    I am getting MINIMAL salt in my diet - no added salt in anything. How much salt is in your Mcdonals meals? You know salt creates water retention, thus, bloating occurs. It can also give you higher blood pressure. So long term - your Mcdonalds approach can give you heart attacks etc.

    I am getting EFA (essential fatty acids) - You would be getting your Saturated and Trans fats. Which, would increase the amount of cholesterol in your body. You are eating the two avoidable fats.

    Ultimately - you would be eating the worst types of carbs, the fastest digesting protein, and the two worst types of fats.

    And, I, will be eating the better carbs, slower digesting protein and the best two fats.

    So it is the same calories - but who wins really?

    The GI (read: simple vs complex) of foods has no impact on anything apart from, maybe, satiety (which is way too complex to pin down to solely GI) unless you're diabetic and struggling with your sugar control. I have no idea what you mean by "they don't even carry any other nutrients" when talking about a banana, oats and bread, he's allocated 30 kcal for sugar cubes to have in coffee.

    What are these added benefits from your protein breaking down slower?

    You understand we need salt, right? There's also strong evidence emerging breaking down the link between salt and hypertension - genetics, weight and body composition is now more strongly implicated. Restriction of salt intake has a role to play in those who are already hypertensive but not in normotensive individuals.

    There's no link between dietary saturated fat intake and serum cholesterol. There are no added trans fats in mcdonalds in the UK, ergo the levels are negligible and not associated with any harm.

    I don't really see the point in this diet unless you're extremely time restricted or have no willpower when it comes to food. To each their own I guess. Assuming you stick to it, I imagine your results will be fairly predictable but no different to if you did the same thing with real food. My biggest concern would be the effect on mental health and potentially your bowels.

    Are you seriously telling me right now that simple carbohydrates have the same benefits as complex carbohydrates?

    Have a read on his; http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/ask-...o-manager.html

    I did not suggest that I do not need salt. I said that salt is minimal, this means I am getting salt. If you actually read what my reply was to (and if you did, then you definitely need to brush up on your reading ability) - How is having Mcnuggets, A burger and McDonalds fries at any way, shape or form near my nutrition intake with my specific shakes?

    Why do you not research the benefits of Casein? I will tell you that this diet requires 5 shakes (if you even read that) and if I am taking Whey protein, then how would that benefit me with this diet? A fast absorbing protein will not help me - I need to feed every 3 hours and a whey shake will not suffice. Although it will enhance protein synthesis, that is not exactly benefiting someone on a shake diet. Research.

    Saturated fats have no link to cholesterol? I presume you have a terrible diet.

    Why don't you come back in 25 days and see what the benefit the diet had on my body? Why mental health concerns?

    I am assuming you do not lift and you don't care what you eat? If you think the guys Mcdonald's diet is the same nutritional value to mine - then you really need to read up on your actual nutrition.

    Ok CS changed it then

    This is the new velocity diet

    Old one was 1 a week solid meal

    TBF 1 a day solid isn't as dramatic

    When I used to do train twice a day and cardio twice I was effectively doing a velocity diet

    My body digests food slowly so I train most effectively on empty stomach

    As for health effects , biology is too varied to give a clear cut answer

    Yeah I know - that would take some serious discipline. One meal a day is pretty good actually. I'm never hungry on this diet, which is surprising.

    Day 4:

    Another solid day. Have not lost any strength and have gained a few reps on the Chest.

    Solid shakes and healthy solid meal.

    Going rather quick, I must say.
