    hey yall....i dont post down here very often, just looking for some advice.


    can anyone fill me in on the pros/cons of going on a liquid diet, as well as what that actually consists of?


    i really looking to lose a significant amount of weight (like 70 pounds) and i dont know where to start.

    this week i have forced myself to start eating completely healthy. im 2 days in.


    i know exercise is a must, and i want to start workin out again as soon as i can motivate myself to get out there, this has been kind of a rough last few months.



    is a liquid diet something yall would suggest, or am i ultimately doing more harm than good to even try?

    Seriously - read all of the sticky threads in F&N

    Liquid diets work, but they should be a last resort, not a first approach.

    The problem is that once you have struggled through the liquid diet and lost your 70lbs, you haven't changed your eating habits. Therefore you will go back to eating like you do now, thus gaining the weight back.

    You need LONG term changes in your eating and exercise habits. They need to be sustained if you want to keep the weight off. Anyone can sarve off 70lbs, but the main challenge is making those changes to KEEP it off forever.

    I disagree with this part of your post. I did the velocity diet (but without all the Biotest products...just too damn expensive) and I found that the foods that I started to crave were healthy ones. It diminished/removed my cravings for shit food.

    Don't get me wrong, I still eat junk from time to time, but the velocity diet really did eliminate a lot of cravings for me. Other users of the v-diet reported the same thing.

    That being said, I used it as a 4 week intro to a more reasonable nutrition plan, and I lost about 20 lbs in the 4 weeks with no loss of strength. I wouldn't try to lose 70 pounds using that method. Use a liquid diet to jump start your results and change your cravings. Do a proper transition to a more traditional plan and you will get there if you keep working.

    Pros:
    Extremely easy to get the EXACT macros and calories you are looking for
    Convient (no prep time really)

    Cons:
    Very boring
    Extremely hard to stick to

    Go on T-Nation.com and look up the velocity diet. I did it but only lasted a week on it....I ended up snapping, pigging out on everything in sight, and gained the weight back. I then resorted back to my normal cutting routine and lost the weight the normal way. :)

    Honestly, I really think I would have succeeded on it if I wasn't studying for a chemistry exam. I really had trouble concentrating on that diet.

    I'm far from the strongest guy, but I wasn't a beginner either. At the time, I was able to bench 305 and dead 405.

    I was fairly fat though (225 at 5'8"), so I probably had the extra benefit of more than enough fat to protect muscle tissue breakdown. Those leaner than what I was might lose some more muscle than I did for that reason.
