The only thing better than losing weight and getting in shape, is doing it quickly, with visible results that often start to appear in just a few days. There are hundreds of diet plans out there that will allow you to lose weight slowly and comfortably, the Velocity Diet, however, promises to melt your body fat much quicker than a typical diet plan.
Do not be fooled, this is dieting on “steroids” or shall I say on clenbuterol? Nah, this diet does not recommend using illegal diet pills, but the Velocity Diet is not for everyone.
How does the Velocity Diet work? The Velocity Diet is designed to control how much you eat and what you eat by substituting typical meals with healthy protein shakes that anyone can make in the comfort of their own home, which practically eliminates a possibility of consuming too much of the wrong foods. You are allowed to consume only one solid meal a week.
How much weight can you expect lose on the Velocity Diet? There are many individual factors that are responsible for the rate of weight loss. Thus, it is impossible to predict how much weight you will lose on this or any other diet.
Having said that, according to people who have successfully completed this diet, one can expect to lose up to 25 pounds in a month. We are talking 25 pounds of body fat here, not just 25 pounds of total weight.
The cons of the Velocity Diet This is not an easy diet to follow. You should not to be hungry on this diet, but for some people it is challenging to consume only protein shakes all day long and have only one solid meal per week. Also, you are not allowed to have a cheat day to indulge your food cravings.
The pros of the Velocity Diet The beauty of this diet is in its simplicity; no cooking, no food journal, no food shopping, and you do not need to continuously track your calorie intake (your caloric needs are determined at the beginning and are followed for the duration of the diet).
What do I need to start the Velocity Diet? You will need the following items: Low-carb protein powder, fish oil, fiber (milled flax seeds, Benefiber or a similar fiber supplement), and a blender. For your one solid meal a week, you will need some real food, think meat or chicken with low-carb vegetables, home-prepared oatmeal with berries, brown rice with fish, etc.
How do I start the Velocity Diet? Determine how many calories you need a day. Consume at least five (5) protein shakes (made with added fiber) every 4 hours or so. Remember to take fish oil capsules. Once a week, have a solid meal. [source: Chris Shugart]
