Velocity Diet

I recently finished a book written by Dan John called Never Let Go. Great read, easy to understand and plenty of fantastic material. Anyone who ever had an interest in any form of exercise should read it.

In the book he references a diet he uses to lose body fat. The Velocity Diet. If I remember correctly, its something like this: -Figure out your daily calorie needs -Consume that many calories everyday in the form of protein shakes -A minimum of 5 shakes a day is required -No other food is allowed -Add a little extra fiber if you experience diarrhea *I’m gonna assume one could likely add anything into the shake as long as its calorie free

A few posts back I made a reference to a similar strategy; consuming nothing but eggs for a few weeks. I think the actual Velocity Diet may work more quickly, the eggs are both healthier, and likely more sustainable. If you aren’t already aware, eggs can be made at least a hundred different ways and with different seasonings, can vary taste and texture enough so as not to become bored with break the streak. Although eating any one food for long enough could result in weight loss, eggs would be, in my opinion, the easiest to use, cheapest, and an extremely healthy choice at that.

So this would be my recommendation for a 28 day fat loss diet. Figure out your calorie needs. Then consume that many calories eating nothing but eggs and some veggies. Spinach, bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, and other super low calorie veggies. Nothing else. Eat a minimum of 3 meals per day. Drink calorie free drinks, and take a little fish oil. Done and done.
