Velocity Diet – A new adventure and challenge!

I’m about to embark on an interesting journey to see what kind of shape I can get my body into. I’ve always been interested in fitness and nutrition. If you ask my wife she’ll tell you that I’m a little over the top with it all and to be honest I probably am. However, I don’t think I’ve ever actually achieved the best condition that I’m capable of. The reason is probably due to lack of discipline and “want to”.

I lost about 20 to 30 lbs. a year or so ago and I’ve kept it off for the most part for a while, but I’m ready to take things to the next level. My road map to getting there involves a plan called the Velocity Diet. This plan is designed to do exactly what the name indicates. It’s designed to rapidly strip the fat off of the body. Some people will think that I’m kinda ridiculous for considering a plan like this but I think it’s got a lot of merit. I’ll be receiving all of the nutrients that I need, just in a different and calculated way.

The quick description of the plan is this: I’ll drink 5 high quality protein shakes a day along with fish oil capsules, a couple servings of milled flax seed, and some fiber tabs. The shakes will be consumed every 2 to 3 hours. I’ll eat 1 healthy solid meal a week. That’s right, I said “1” solid meal a week. I’ll do this for 28 days straight and then I’ll transition off of this plan back to consuming solid food on a regular basis again over a 2 week period.

I’ll also be lifting weights 3 days per week and doing some kind of low intensity cardio every day without fail.

The goal is to strip off about 20 or so pounds during this time and uncover the muscle that is hiding below the fat.

My motivation is the desire to experience being in the best shape of my life and to successfully complete a challenging program that requires extreme focus and discipline.

Note: I’ll be starting a separate blog where I’ll be chronicling each day of this journey to my best physique ever. I’ll record the good, the bad, and the ugly. There will probably be progress photos involved…. otherwise how would you know I made any progress?

Stay Tuned………..

  1. doesn’t sound healthy or a very attainable “program” whatsoever! Are you NUTS!?!? How will your body respond to “real food” when you lay off the shakes? Yikes, man, I’m all for the gettig into better shape, etc, but, have you lost your mind!?!?!



  2. These are the type of responses I fully anticipated getting. The fact is that I’ll be consuming something 5 to 6 times a day. Each meal will have all of the nutrients my body needs. I’ll transition off of this plan for a week or two so my body readjusts to solid foods again. The right kinds of food.



  3. Jon, this sounds like the Atkins diet, just with shake form and making sure you get some real nutrients too. You go thru the kitosis or whatever, then you add back in the starches, or in this case real food. Best wishes – no way I could do it!



  4. Emily –

    It definitely is a high protein, low carb approach but should be much more affective than Atkins (not a ton of bad fat). An interesting by product of this plan is the taste preference changes. From all accounts that I’ve read (and I’ve been researching it for awhile) food preferences are changing to healthier foods for a lot of folks.



  5. Oh wow – meaning, you will want the good, healthy stuff? I could use that! hah aa Who sells all the stuff for your shakes? WHat goes into them? I should just look it up and read about it, was just curious if someone is just trying to make a bunch of money off people on skake ingred.’s or what. How did you come across it? How’s it going thus far!??!
