    Default Maintain / Gain weight on WD

    I am relatively new to the Warrior Diet, I play Rugby and train hard 3 days a week. How can I structure my eating habits to maintain and gain weight (lean weight)

    If you haven't done so already, read the WD book and also the Maximum Muscle, Minimum Fat book by the same author. He also has a web forum on which you can ask questions at www.defensenutrition.com.

    All that said, timing matters - eat light when you can, refuel when you need, especially after exercise.

    ori says he gained 12 lbs in a year on the WD. that is not going to cut it for rugby.
    either gain weight, then go on the WD, or just throw it out all together. no high level players will ever be on the WD.

    mahler likes the WD but even says it is not the right diet to gain weight on. you'll probably just get fat by trying to get enough calories in to sustain good weight gain.

    I think gaining 12 pounds in a year is pretty good. But WD isn't the best for gaining weight. I find it pretty awesome for competition though. however, weight isn't everything in sport, depends on your position.

    Eat some nuts or high calorie protien during the day and eat your huge meal (hihg carbs+protien) after training. if you like to eat then you won't lose weight and you may even gain weight if your so inclined. I never lost weight on WD, I aimed to keep my weight the same.
