As an industry insider, I have access to the top-level diet experts: men and women who know a lot about getting lean quickly without losing muscle. I picked their brains and developed a diet plan based loosely on Protein-Sparing Modified Fasts. From it, I lost sixteen pounds of fat and four inches off my waist in 28 days. My body-fat percentage hit the single-digit mark for the first time in my life, and I could see all of my abs. I'd also lost my cravings for fattening foods and even developed new tastes for healthier foods. I dubbed it the Velocity Diet because it works so fast. Whether your goal is to lose that last 15 pounds of fat and finally see your abs, kickstart a healthier lifestyle, or control your cravings forever, the Velocity Diet is designed just for you.*
- You consume four fortified fat-burning protein shakes each day as the core of the plan, one at breakfast, lunch, midday, and bedtime.
- You also have a whole-food evening meal on your daily menu.
- The diet also includes two other supplements that provide Omega-3 fatty acids and whole-food extracts of berries, fruits, vegetables, and greens.
- There are no stimulants involved.
We also include an expert-designed training program.
We asked Dr. Chad Waterbury to write a custom training plan specially designed for those on this diet.
The training program consists of three weightlifting workouts per week and one bodyweight exercise session, called The V-Burn Challenge, which you do on Saturday or Sunday.
You'll also do NEPA walks and NEPA activities each day. NEPA stands for Non-Exercise Physical Activity that further boosts metabolic rate, burns additional fat, and speeds recovery from training.

I looked in the mirror one day and didn't like what I saw. Sure, I was in okay shape. After all, I was a professional in the fitness industry, so I'd better have some muscle and look pretty lean, right?
I'd made progress over the years, going from 35% body fat in college to somewhere in the teens. The problem was, I'd never really achieved that super lean, athletic look with visible abs. I thought, "Man, I work hard in the gym, and my diet's pretty good too. So why do I still feel uncomfortable taking my shirt off at the pool?" It was frustrating and more than a little embarrassing.
I knew that my eating habits were okay, but they weren't perfect. I still struggled to choose the right foods and not overeat. Despite all I'd accomplished, all the weight I'd lost, I still had some residual "fat-guy cravings" for foods that kept me from getting as lean as I wanted.
Sometimes I'd be "good" all week, then blow it all on the weekend with a cheat meal that turned into a 48-hour buffet binge. Again, as a fitness professional, I was embarrassed. Why couldn't I control myself? Why didn't the willpower I expressed in the gym transfer to my eating habits?
I trained hard too, but that last layer of fat hid the hard-earned muscle. I decided right then to make one last effort to uncover my abs. Since I was already working out several times a week, I knew I had to do something extreme with my diet to shed that stubborn layer of fat.
Being an "insider" in the fitness industry, I had access to many nutrition experts, research scientists, athletes, and bodybuilders: men and women who knew a lot about getting lean very fast without losing muscle.
I picked their brains and eventually came up with a diet plan based loosely on Protein-Sparing Modified Fasts, which are dietary regimens overweight patients at hospitals are on before they undergo surgery.
I wrote an article about my idea with a "don't try this at home" warning. It was an experiment, and I didn't know how or if it would work.
In 28 days, I lost sixteen pounds of fat and four inches off my waist. My body-fat percentage hit the single-digit mark for the first time in my life. I could see all of my abs.* Finally!
I also noticed a peculiar side effect. During the diet, I'd somehow lost all my cravings for fattening foods, like sweets and fried stuff. I'd even developed new tastes for healthier foods I'd never liked before, like green vegetables. "Well," I thought, "that's weird. But I like it! And it'll sure make maintaining the fat loss easier."*
I now know the cravings switch has a science-based reason and resulted from increasing leptin and decreasing ghrelin, the body's two hormones that strongly influence appetite.*
I published another article about my results that resulted in many people trying the diet. The feedback was universal: Dieters who'd been struggling to lose fat for years were able to achieve great results in only 28 days. And the best part was, most people who closely followed the diet reported the same positive changes in eating habits and taste preferences.
Other fitness experts and coaches contacted me wanting to do the diet. Christian Thibaudeau, Dan John, and others, all published experts, used my diet to break their lingering bad habits and shed body fat in record time.
Coach Dan John lost 23 pounds and 5 inches off his belly measurements in 28 days. Shortly afterward, Dan set a Master's State Record in the snatch lift, 105-kilo division. Bodybuilding coach Christian Thibaudeau used the Velocity Diet twice, once to get ready for a bodybuilding competition and once to modify his dietary habits. "The Velocity Diet helped me to get back on track," he acknowledged.*
I soon asked Chad Waterbury to write a custom training program specially designed for those on this diet. To test out the latest version of the plan, I put T Nation reader Gus Pancho on the latest version of the Velocity Diet. Gus is 37 years old and lost 40 pounds and nine inches from his belly during and after his Velocity Diet experience.*
Gus Pancho lost 40 pounds with the help of the Velocity Diet.*
The Velocity Diet helped Gus kickstart his transformation. He lost 21 pounds and five inches from his waist in 28 days. Gus says the taste and dietary habit changes he achieved with the Velocity Diet helped him significantly during the last three months of his incredible transformation.*
Today, thanks to the feedback of thousands of people, years of continued research, and improvements in the nutritional supplement field, I've been able to expand and improve the original plan, which I'd dubbed the Velocity Diet because it worked so fast.*
Whether your goal is to lose that last 15 pounds of fat and finally see your abs, kickstart a healthier lifestyle, or control your cravings forever, the Velocity Diet is designed just for you.*
