Yeah a plan to ease into the full V-Diet, the 100 Gram carb cure is a great idea but if you follow the meal plan example listed it doesn't get you prepped to drink only shakes. So maybe something like replacing 2 of those daily meals with shakes for the first week, and then the next week you replace 3 of those meals and so forth until you're just having shakes like the V-Diet. A plan like that could help a lot of folks that aren't used to drinking protein shakes.

That can work as well. Most people have to adjust to having fewer carbs, and both plans will do that.

There's nothing set in stone, but what you outlined is fine: 1 shake per day for a few days, then 2 (first and last meal say), etc.

It was the same thing with the iBB program. So much drible. If you spent half the time doing the program that you do trying to change it, imAgine how far you could go.

I have been doing the V-Diet religiously for 5 days so far. I have followed every single rule, every protein shake, every workout, every NEPA training with the exception of the occasional Diet Coke or coffee, never both on the same day. That being said even though all days have been somewhat hard (i.e. cravings, hunger, sluggishness, etc.), today I woke up rather nauseous and extremely sluggish. I am not looking for a work around or for excuses to change anything, but just simply want to know if others have dealt with this same issue. I'm guessing this goes away, right?

Latinman, try sipping your Surge Recovery just before and during training, about half of it. Then, after, slam the last of it. That can help you get through a lower-carb diet workout.
