    I think the WD is flexible enough to say that what you're doing is completely fine. You may want to experiment a little just to see what works better for you. It also doesn't hurt to reread the book a couple of times. You may pick out a few things that you missed the first time around, and want to incorporate some new things into the diet. Good luck!

    Ok guys, thanks for the input.

    I have been eating around 3 bananas and 2 apples daily. As for the suggestion of celery that is an absolute no no as I can't abide the stuff. The main reason I chose bananas and apples is for the convenience as I can eat therm whilst behind the wheel at work whilst on the go so citrus fruit will be a little more difficult.

    The oil I have on my salad is really only a tiny amount, probably not even a tablespoon and I am going to start to have a small amount of chicken breast in my salad during the day now that all the ham is used up.

    Any more pointers greatly received.

    3 bananas=too many during undereating phase

    I recommend precutting a grapefruit or orange and packing it in a cooler for your situation.

    chicken breast=not light protein

    It completely defeats the purpose of alkalizing your body during the day by eating a small amount of fruit, veggies, and easily digestible light protein throughout the day.

    Samples of light and easily digestible protein that you can have during the UE phase are listed clearly in the book.

    If the way you're eating is working for your goals, then feel free to stick with it. Meeting your personal goals are what is most important. But as of now you're not following the WD.

    Ok guys thanks for the input so far. I opted for apples and bananas as they're easy to munch on whilst on the go behind the wheel so citrus fruit would be a little difficult. FYI I have been eating around 3 bananas and 2 apples daily.

    Celery is an absolute no no as I cannot stand the stuff. With my salad the amount of oil I have on it is no more than a tablespoon maximum and I intend to have a little chopped chicken breast now all my ham is used up.

    Any more pointers?

    Ok thanks again. I think I'll re-read the book and re-evaluate what I need to do. It's early days yet and it will need a little tweaking.

    I gather that you are struggling with "undereating". Having salad or any kind of meat isn't recommended, as they are more taxing on the digestive system. One or two pieces of fruit, some kind of vegetable juice, eggs, kefir, yogurt, whey, and almonds are all that the author says you should eat. Try it this way for a few weeks and the hunger pangs should fade.

    Haha, all of my longwinded posts and you just summarized everything I said in 4 sentences. I'll let you take over on all the WD questions. You'll save me a ton of time.

    I have briefly re-read the UE phase of the book and some of it seems contradictory in as much on one page he says to avoid apples and oranges and then on the very next page he says they're fine.

    I think all things in moderation perhaps.

    I'm fairly certain the author does not advocate "everything in moderation". That is not the philosophy of the Warrior Diet. If you are unable to give up meat during the undereating phase, than another type of diet would be better for you. What you are trying to achieve is to only eat when you are truly hungry during the undereating phase. You are supposed to feel hungry (be like a warrior), and than take care of that hunger in the overeating phase. Without the digestive "rest" during the day, you are not actually on the Warrior Diet.

    When I was on that diet, I tried to avoid all fruits. I'd do a water fast if it was comfortable, but if I got hungry, I'd eat carrots and celery. If you have to eat fruit though, I would think an apple (a tart one, like Granny Smith) would be the best choice. I would stay away from bananas altogether.
