Just do a search on this site for "100 gram carb". It is the first ink that comes up. It's very easy to follow.

Before I started the V-Diet, I also used to work out with weights 6 times a week. I believe that I was over training, and not getting anywhere. The diet/workout taught me that I didn't have to work out as much to get even better results. After I finish this transition period, I am going to do weight training 4 times a week, and will probably end up doing intervals 4 times a week as well, but not always on the same days as the weight training. I still have to experiment with a plan though.

You can do HIIT in many different ways. I just make sure that I am always wearing my heart rate monitor to ensure that I am getting my heart rate up high enough, and that I bring my heart rate down to a certain point before I begin another interval. I mostly do running intervals because it is what I hate the most. What ever is my least favorite thing to do, normally brings the best results. You can do intervals as a cross fit circuit which I also do, you can do it on the rowing machine, etc. Just find out what works best for you!

thanks again for the suggestions!

starting the second week of Phase II tomorrow...I forgot how much preparation is involved in making all of my meals :) I also didn't realize how much I really enjoy cooking and learning new recipes. Looked into 100 gram carb cure and it is definitely something I can swing and stick to. Anyone know of sites/indexes that have the carb count of fruits and veggies? I will also be experimenting with circuits and weight lifting. Would def like to continue to weight lift 3x/week. Starting the 6-week sprinting solution tomorrow. may do 2 days of circuits and then one longer run on the weekends, but I have to figure everything out and try not to over train since I feel like that's typically my problem!

Feeling really good about being able to do the V-diet and for learning something new. Although I have been a soccer player all my life and always considered myself an athlete, I feel more physically fit and healthier now than I ever did playing, even when I played in college (I'm 28 now). It's also very inspiring to know that, while I may have hit my physical peak, there are plenty of people who continue with their athletic feats and build on their strengths starting in their late 20s and 30s...I'm excited to be a part of ths type of community!
