I don't sound like an elitist, but someone like you shouldn't need to drink drinks like surge.

Aren't you just trying to lose weight? and Aren't you like an ultra novice?

Nope. Been weight training for a year.

Surge is part of my prescribed routine on the velocity diet.

I always make my own ... milk, protein powder, blueberries or strawberries, ground flaxseed, wheat germ, even a couple Sweet'n'Low

What does "Surge" have that makes it so great? How much does it cost? Is it low carb ... gotta have that. If there's sugar, I can't do it.


I have an f'ig inflamed bursa sac in my right shoulder ...svcks BIG time. Flys were about my favorite exercise, and now it's too painful

It's more of a meal replacement shake, it has sugar. But it's supposed to be taken after workouts.

It's cheaper than my Jay Robb protein powder so I might switch...

Yeah, he's a major novice. He's also on a crappy diet IMO.

Look at those pics Bobo! There is no change in muscle mass or definition, all they did was get thinner. That's why that diet sucks.

Holy crap! The Velocity diet sounds crazy! One solid meal a week!? Personally, I think low carb diets are nuts. Carbs are brain food - especially starch carbs. I don't like the idea of eliminating brain food.

I do like the idea of losing a bunch of weight quickly, but the problem that I would have with that is that I've not changed any of my HABITS. That's why I prefer to count calories. I'm eating whatever the hell I want, but once I reach my daily calorie intake (currently 2100 calories daily), I'm done eating for the day. My goal is to lose 40 lbs by my son's 3rd birthday on during Labor Day weekend. That will put me right about 185.

I do it (not the velocity diet, but cutting all carbs that don't come from fiber) about twice a year when I get serious on my cutting cycles.

In all honesty, it's terrible. I can barely sleep, but when I'm awake I feel like all I want to do is go to sleep and I'm foggy all the time, and when I finally do have the where-with-all to get passionate about something it's because I'm picking a fight with someone because I'm so damn cranky.

...but it works like a mother-****er.

I feel fine after two days so far. Middle of the third day now and it's time for another shake.

It's NOT a starvation diet. On workout days I consume 2,000 calories.

Sorry TJ, that's a myth. Your body can produce the ATP needed even on a low carb diet if you do it right. The version of the diet that I'm on has made me feel much more alert and focused and those sentiments have been echoed by others who have gone on this diet as well...many of whom I know personally.

If you're interested, I can send you a PDF file explaining the diet. It gives a very in depth look on this carb = brain food myth and how your brain will have plenty of "food" on a low carb diet.

It's a fad diet where you'll crash eventually.

Sorry, no.

The results say otherwise.

You only crash if you lose willpower.

What's your sourcing on this? I've read tons about Atkins and South Beach, and I've never heard this "brain food" thing .... I do know I lost quite a lot in two separate 3-week/1-month Atkins spurts, and I don't recall brain "slowdowns" (there was some lethargy in week 1, but it passed).

People complain you can't drink beer on Atkins, but there are some 3-4 grams carb beers (Bud Light is 5), plus liquor is carb-free.

That's the great thing about the diet I'm doing. You do low carb during the week but then on the weekends you can eat whatever you want basically, and of course you can have those beers.

I weighed myself this morning right out off bed in boxers, 237 LBS.

Down almost 20 since January, now I realize I could of lost much more if I didn't half ass it a lot of the time.

But next week I'm back on it, wish me luck.

OK. It's time for my V-Diet healthy solid meal of the week. (by the way, veins are popping out of my arms today...good feeling)

What should I have?

Quote:
Your healthy solid meal doesn't have to be complex. There's no need to count calories; just choose "clean" foods. Here's a simple guideline:

Protein: lean steak, a couple of grilled chicken breasts, turkey breast, baked or grilled fish, etc.

Veggies: large pile of mostly green veggies, steamed broccoli, spinach, zucchini, squash, etc.

Starch: small amount of dry sweet potato, whole-wheat pasta, or brown rice

Salad: large salad with olive oil and vinegar dressing -- no cream dressings!

Dessert: small amount of fruit
Suggestions, please. Apparently I can't have white potatoes, so mashed potatoes are out.

I'm thinking of having pea soup instead of salad. Dunno if that would be OK.
