    Velocity Diet 3.0

    T-mag (Testosterone Magazine) has just published its latest version of the 'Velocity Diet.
    http://www.t-nation.com/programs/vdi...Program000.jsp

    I'm just posting this info for anyone who might be interested and isn't on their email list. One interesting point though, is the author's observation that the best diet results come from fairly quick and intense diets, as opposed to spreading the diet out over several months.

    I am quite suspicious of the supplement tie-in.

    Not a real athletes diet. And by real athlete, I mean anything other than bodybuilding.

    I'm not so sure I like the idea of only having one solid meal each week during the early phases. The human digestive system is meant to deal with solid foods, and depriving it of them for extended periods may have some negative side effects, such as a temporarily decreased ability to process solid foods effectively. That could make that one solid meal of the week an unpleasant experience.

    Also, the calorie restriction is a bit high. It calculated 1,700 kcal for me on a workout day. That level of calorie restriction doesn't seem like it would even allow for proper tissue repair. Generally, a deficit of 500 kcal is recommended for weight loss, and for me this diet would cut my intake down by half.

    Also, I'm always a little skeptical when an ad starts off with "a _____ that the <insert professional titles> don't want you to know!"

    What I wonder is how supplements + shakes can really handle the micro-and-macro nutrient requirements of the body.

    I think this falls down like every other shake diet, even if it isn't actually a shake-diet-in-the-sense-of-buy-our-shakes diet; sure, you'll lose weight, but you won't get enough nutrients.

    I was considering trying it for a while but I then realised I have special nutrient needs (such as huge doseages of fibre) and having none of those would just **** my body.

    I think it's telling that this diet is apparently not only supported by science, but by "hardcore science." It's just like regular science, but all of the lab equipment is on fire!

    It's just like regular science, except all the experiments are performed while skydiving.

    Analysis of test results is performed while free-climbing Mount Rushmore!

    I saw this in the latest newsletter, read through it and while I may not be an expert this part made me go hmmmm:

    Your initial — and wholly logical — response is probably something like this: "I bet I can do this diet without using BIOTEST® supplements."

    Maybe, but the end result wouldn't be a body transformation. Instead, you'd look pretty much like you do now, only smaller and, well, baggier.
    So you have to use their products otherwise it won't work. uh hun.
