Goal is to cut bodyfat? Or just to try it?

Agreed! Hey Allen did you post somewhere that you were going to try out the V diet as well?

Not right now, perhaps next year sometime after all my wife's medical stuff is sorted out.

Day 3

3. Do not mix psyllium husk with something and leave it to sit for a few hours. The psyllium husk will expand and you will get some clumpy stuff.

5. I am so sick of ON Chocolate I am trying not to gag while drinking it... may have to buy some turkey breast and chicken breast tomorrow. Shugart would say that I've modified the V diet so much that I'm not on it anymore. The V diet induces fat loss through a huge caloric deficit... so as long as I can create that, I am not worried about eating meat instead of drinking shakes.

6. Almost no sleep again last night... I saved a bit of Powerade from this morning to try and create an insulin spike so I might sleep better.

7. A bit of walking, a bit of rowing, and a workout inspired by Allen's training log:

DL 5x3 65kg
PUs 5x3 BW
Dips 5x3 BW

4x5 (90s rest) 25kg of PC, SDLHP, RDL, MP, FS

3. Nasty isn't it??? I've made that mistake before too.

5. I've read numerous V-diet accounts and it's said the first week is the hardest, I think you can stick through it! start experimenting with different combos (ON chocolate + PB + milk = good). I havent' done the V-diet but last year I did the smoothie detox diet with my wife....I hadn't waned solid food so bad before that! Recalling back to the V-diet stuff I read I'm pretty sure you are allowed to have one solid meal per week? I found Dan John's V-diet account to be the best.

6. So what's up with all this non-sleeping? Are you too hungry to fall asleep at night?

7. Robb said for his clients he tries to do 3-5 sets of 2-3 reps in about 15 minutes using 1 minute rests between movements. I like it.

5. Ahhh adding PB is a good idea.. might get a jar of natural PB soon and add it in. Yup Shugart had one solid meal a week.. in fact he had something in one of his articles about people who want to have one solid meal a day.

6. Hahaha no I've been feeling quite full most of the time even. I have no idea what's causing the insomnia.. my eyelids might start shutting in class or while watching TV, but once I switch the TV off I can't fall asleep! Any ideas?

7. Is there a reason he keeps it to 2-3 reps rather than 5 reps?

5. I know a guy who did just that over on the Crossfit Myspace group, 1 solid meal at night, lean protein + veggies.

6. Hm....were you taking ZMA before starting the V-diet? I know when I start taking it after not taking it for a while I had really bad insomnia but that went away after a few days.

7. Robb kept it at 3-5 sets of 2-3 reps I believe to stay in the "strength rep range" AND so that the strength training would not hamper their recovery abilities too much as he would use the strength circuit almost every session and waveload the weight used. I got this from the PM where he described how he setup a fighters training. Robb has also mentioned that he does it with his other clients as well.

Alicia-
I really think the looser Devany esqe, Meat-Leaves-berries approach is where its at. The Zone is there if you really want to tighten things up and get specific...paleo is smart most of the time, especially in the case of wheat due to insulin/immune issues...but it's a very subjective thing. Make it livable and fun.

Perhaps substituting scotch for Scorch would help sleep?

Well at least he didn't say "a big dose of Ron loving"

Going back to #3 on the psyllium husk...when you leave the psyllium out in water how it expands and becomes thick, you can see how and why it keeps a person full when you eat it. Fiber like that bulks up inside the stomach and helps to keep us feeling full. And of course then it helps to clean us out after it moves through. Psyllium husk (http://www.seacoastvitamins.com/topic.php?health=psyllium) is being recommended now to eat regularly due to the many health benefits. But no, I always drinks mine right away when combining it with any liquid:)
