    Default WD Success

    I have been on the WD for a week now and have lost half a stone!!!! I am amazed but is this normal? I havent felt hungry once.

    Does everyone go through this rapid loss at the beginning and will it slow down and level off? I want to lose about about 2.5 - 3 stone so have a fair bit to shift...is this why?

    I lost around 10 lbs the first week I was following the WD. My losses tapered off quickly because I only had so much to lose. I started at below 10%bodyfat. My strength,energy and mental clarity increased as my BF% decreased. I would guess the more you have to lose the long longer the losses will keep coming, but don't expect the first week results to happen every week, as long as you are loosing be happy.

    I also started the WD one week ago, and have dropped 3-4 lbs. Trying to get down to 10% BF or less. My only concern is with protein intake and possible muscle loss. I am not heavy as it is, 5'11', 167 lbs, but have been strength training for about 3 years with minimal cardio. Was tired of trying to eat for mass. Got up to 192 lbs early last year and still have some unsightly belly flab.

    Will be shifting to PTTP after my current total body program is over in another two weeks or so. Already do some kettlebell work for cardio now. Did 160 snatches the other day and my hamstrings are screaming!

    It's summer, and I'm happy to be spending less time at my computer. I've been on the WD for years (must be six or seven by now). Congratulations on your success! Don't question it, just go with the flow as it seems to be working well for you. Any specifics, I'm happy to help as are others here.

    Should i be counting calories on this diet? I know the book says not too but surely i still need to maintain a calorie deficit?

    Also, could someone also explain to me in simple terms how the not eating helps boost metabolism? All the so-called expects say that this is complete nonsense.

    The reason i ask this is because I was talking to my Doctor last week and mentioned about the WD and he almost laughed when i told him the theory? He stated that I would never lose weight this way and would completely stop my metabolism after a week when my body realises that are daily periods of not being fed???

    I lost a lot of weight last week, but have put back on 3lb of this week already (I know its silly to weigh all the time but i was curious). Its just got me thinking maybe the doc was right?

    Whats your thoughts on this???

    Any diet where you eat calories below maintenance should cause you to lose weight. As far as metabolism goes, I have read that it could slow down. However, you are UNDEREATING during the day, not fasting. You should eat something during the day if hungry, like a piece of fruit or an egg. Over time you are supposed to be less hungry during the undereating phase.

    Regarding counting calories, I hope you are not eating an entire pizza in the evening. You should have more high-fat days than high-carb days if you are looking to lose weight (according to Ori). If you are sticking to the prescribed salad, vegetables and protein, with some fat at the end, I am not sure how you could gain weight. You'd have to eat an enormous amount if you are staying away from breads and pastas.

    I like the diet because I do not like having to eat during the day, and the evening meal is always outstanding because you are hungry and ready to eat.

    The Warrior Diet book addresses most of your questions, and Ori answers them better than, I suspect, anyone here, me included, could.

    The need-to-eat-all-the-time mentality is, IMHO, right up there with the need-to-run-in-padded-shoes mentality. Both are right in their own way - sure, if you stop eating during the day "cold turkey", you'll feel lousy, and if you head out the door for your usual 40 minute run around your neighborhood barefoot, you'll come back with bloody feet.

    But our bodies are trainable. We have trained them away from many things that, IMHO, ought to be natural for us, like not eating a big meal more than once a day, and moving ourselves without mini-mattresses on the bottoms of our feet. Take your time, listen to your body (a cliche but nonetheless where this is at), and you can do very well following the WD. Your doctor simply doesn't know what he's talking about in this area, and you can bet that the body composition of many of us who follow the WD is better than that of most physicians.

    As to weighing yourself often, you must also work that one out for yourself. I get on the scale every morning, have for years, and have no plans to stop

    Rant over, best of luck to you.
