First off I did have some people ask me if this diet goes against my philosophy. In short yes, I prefer to get calories from food over any supplement or powder. My personal philosophy is very close to that of Paleo Nutrition. But I was intrigued by the Velocity Diet and decided to be a guinea pig. That’s it. If it works and for me works means drop 10-15 pounds and keep or gain strength then I can honestly critique it. If I lean up and drop tons of strength then I can bash it all to hell. My hope is the first scenario. So having said that…… On to day 2.
So I kind of under estimated the will power it would take to complete this diet. I think they should actually name it the Velocity Diet Challenge. I have consumed 1800+ calories per day on this diet so it is far from starvation but the lack of real food definitely plays with satiety, actually there is no satiety. As per Webster, Satiety is : the quality or state of being fed or gratified to or beyond capacity. Actually, as I am typing this, an Applebee’s commercial came on the TV and for the first time in my life I actually wanted to go and eat there. But on the other note, today’s workout felt good and my wife or my co-workers haven’t complained of me being a moody SOB so that is a good thing. Going in to this project yes I wanted to shred up a bit but not at the expense of strength. So this is going to be an interesting journey. I need to go make my last shake of the night with peanut butter and eat my fish oil. Until next time…..
