Velocity Diet Results

May 29th, 2008 Mark No comments

It’s day 1 of the transition out of the Velocity Diet – the 28 day diet has been completed!

Final Measurements (cold, not flexed):

Bicep: 14.5″ (-0.5″)
Calf: 16.25″ (-0.75″)
Thigh: 22.25″ (-1.75″)
Neck: 14.75″ (-0.75″)
Forearm: 12.5″ (-0.25″)
Waist: 32″ (-4.5″)
Lower Abs: 36″ (-4″)
Chest: 39″ (-2″)

Total inches lost: 14.5″

Weight: 206lbs (14st 10lbs) / 93.4Kg

Total weight lost: 16lbs / 7.2Kg

I am now within 10lbs of my original goal for summer, I’m predicting around 6 weeks to get there. I will transition from the Velocity Diet onto T-Dawg Diet 2.0

Overall I’m very pleased with the 16lbs loss and it’s very noticable

Velocity Diet Day 28

May 28th, 2008 Mark No comments

The last day before the transition!

Measurements haven’t changed since last time:

Today’s Measurements (cold, not flexed):

Bicep: 14.25″ (-0.75″)
Calf: 16.25″ (-0.75″)
Thigh: 22.25″ (-1.75″)
Neck: 14.75″ (-0.75″)
Forearm: 12.5″ (-0.25″)

Chest: 39″ (-2″)

Weight: 207lbs (14st 11lbs) / 93.8Kg (-15lbs / 6.8Kg)

I will post my immediate post Velocity Diet figures tomorrow and then some post transition figures a further 2 weeks later

I am happy with the results thus far, I hoped to lose 14lbs and have exceeded that

My ultimate target has been 196lbs @ 8% body fat (assuming I’ve calculated everything properly!).. hopefully I’ll be there within 6 weeks

Here’s my original fat loss estimate chart for 2008 just for fun

Velocity Diet Day 26

May 26th, 2008 Mark No comments

Nearly there – 3 full days to go

Today’s Measurements (cold, not flexed):

Bicep: 14.25″ (-0.75″)
Calf: 16.25″ (-0.75″)
Thigh: 22.25″ (-1.75″)
Neck: 14.75″ (-0.75″)
Forearm: 12.5″ (-0.25″)
Waist: 32″ (-4.5″)
Lower Abs: 36″ (-4″)
Chest: 39″ (-2″)

Weight: 208lbs (14st 12lbs) / 94.3Kg (-14lbs / 6.3Kg)

I think that my weight is due for a couple of pounds drop over the next couple of days. 14 pounds was my target so I’ve reached that already!

Weight: 212lbs (15st 2lbs) / 96.1Kg (-10lbs / 4.5Kg)

When I started I was hoping for 1st / 14lbs loss and it looks like I should come very close to that

Velocity Diet Day 12

Today’s Measurements (cold, not flexed):

Bicep: 14.5″ (-0.5″)
Calf: 16.5″ (-0.5″)
Thigh: 22.5″ (-1.5″)
Neck: 15″ (-0.5″)

Lower Abs: 38″ (-2″)

Weight: 215lbs (15st 5lbs) / 97.5Kg (-7lbs / 3.2Kg)

I really hoped for some downward movement in the lower abdominal measurement but as you can see it’s not budged

I’m feeling more energetic today, could be due to not training for 2 days or my HSM (healthy solid meal), or a combination of the two! Anyway, it’s enabled me to actually get a couple of PRs today – 120KG Deadlift & 60KG Military Press

Velocity Diet Day 9

May 9th, 2008 Mark No comments

Weight: 216lbs (15st 6lbs) / 97.9Kg (-6lbs / 2.7Kg)

I’ll do measurements after the weekend, on day 12

I lacked energy yesterday which sucked, didn’t really feel hungry though
