The only thing better than losing weight and getting in shape, is doing it quickly, with visible results that often start to appear in just a few days. There are hundreds of diet plans out there that will allow you to lose weight slowly and comfortably, the Velocity Diet, however, promises to melt your body fat much quicker than a typical diet pill.
How does the Velocity Diet work?
The Velocity Diet is designed to control how much you eat and what you eat by substituting typical meals with healthy protein shakes that anyone can make in the comfort of their own home, which practically eliminates a possibility of consuming too much of the wrong foods. You are allowed to consume only one solid meal a week.
How much weight can you expect lose on the Velocity Diet?
There are many individual factors that are responsible for the rate of weight loss. Thus, it is impossible to predict how much weight you will lose on this or any other diet. Having said that, according to people who have successfully completed this diet, one can expect to lose up to 25 pounds in a month. We are talking 25 pounds of body fat here, not just 25 pounds of total weight.
The pros of the Velocity Diet
The beauty of this diet is in its simplicity; no cooking, no food journal, no food shopping, and you do not need to continuously track your calorie intake (your caloric needs are determined at the beginning and are followed for the duration of the diet).
What do I need to start the Velocity Diet?
You will need the following items: Low-carb protein powder, fish oil, fiber (milled flax seeds, Benefiber or a similar fiber supplement), and a blender. For your one solid meal a week, you will need some real food, think meat or chicken with low-carb vegetables, home-prepared oatmeal with berries, brown rice with fish, etc.
How do I start the Velocity Diet?
Determine how many calories you need a day. Consume at least five (5) protein shakes (made with added fiber) every 4 hours or so. Remember to take fish oil capsules. Once a week, have a solid meal
The Nitty-Gritty Details
Calories : First I need to decide how many calories to consume per day. I may adjust this number as I go along, but I need to have a place to start. I know for sure I want to get more than 1300 calories per day.
Here's how I'll get my starting numbers. First plug total bodyweight into this equation: (10.2 x bodyweight + 879) x .50 = _____
Now do it again with this equation: (10.2 x bodyweight + 879) x .60 = _____ (Only the .60 is different.)
So, let's say a guy weighs 193 pounds and wants to see what his physique would look like at a ridiculously shredded 180: (10.2 x 193 + 879) x .50 = 1424 calories
(10.2 x 193 + 879) x .60 = 1709 calories
Now, let's round those numbers to the nearest hundred for the sake of simplicity: 1400 and 1700. What our sample guy has now is the absolute minimal and maximal amount of calories he's going to consume while on the Velocity Diet.
My plan is to get close to the first number on non-training days and close to the second number on training days, but as long as I don't fall above or below this range I think I'll do fine.
My Sample Velocity Diet Plan
To make all this easier to grasp, I'll outline my plan below. Basically, I'll be having five Low-Carb Grow! shakes a day on non-training days with added fiber and/or healthy fats. On training days, I'll simply add a serving of Surge right after my workout. To make the calories better match up with my goals, I'll be skipping the salmon capsules on weight training days.
Tuesday /Thursday / Sunday
5 American Pure Whey 100% Whey Protein Isolate shakes shakes made with ice cold water, spread evenly throughout the day
4 servings of macadamia nut oil added evenly over several
shakes 21 salmon oil capsules
Monday / Wednesday / Friday
5 American Pure Whey 100% Whey Protein Isolate shakes, spread evenly throughout the day
4 servings of macadamia nut oil, added evenly over several shakes
1 serving of Surge after weight workouts. (Half can also be sipped throughout the workout, with the other half slammed right after.)
No salmon capsules on this day.
1-2 servings of old fashioned oatmeal with 1-2 servings of blueberries. 3-4American Pure Whey 100% Whey Protein Isolate shakes, spread evenly throughout the day. On top of this, I'll drink a ton of ice water every day, green tea as desired, and allow myself one morning cup of coffee.
