    Thumbs up There is fat. Then there is stubborn fat.

    I am currently on the ESE. But while in the local book store I came across a copy of Warrior Diet. So I purchased it and took it home to read. I am halfway through this book, and have learned quite a bit. Especially about the role of estrogin in many of the foods that we eat. And the toxic effects of food packaging. Now I allways thought that fat was just fat. But I learned that this is not the case with stubborn fat. Yes estrogin is the culprit. But the book details how you can eat certain foods that can inhibit the effects of estroginic fat - stubborn fat. Also the author Ori Hofmekler details the benifits and uses of enzymes in food that play a major factor in fat loss. This book has alot of good information. If you have allways wondered why you can't lose that belly fat - you should read this book. You may just learn something that will help you...Dennis

    Having applied the Warrior Diet principles for over two years, I would agree that the book has a lot of good information. However, for application, I'd recommend 'The Warrior Diet Fat Loss Program' E-book.

    The book, in my opinion, is vague and even contradictory at times. The E-book is far more succinct, providing a three week program to begin the diet and defining certain terms that the book does not.

    Currently, I'm employing some recommendations more akin with 'Maximum Muscle Minimum Fat,' but I won't elaborate without any basis. We'll see what changes occur by the first week in November. If they're worth sharing, I will post.

    It is a great book. I got it a few months ago and decided to give it a shot. I started to lose a bit too much weight though for my goals so I've had to begin eating a little easily digested protein throughout the day. Otherwise the food selections are what I have already been eating for years and I really love eating a large meal at night and relaxing after an intense day of training and work.

    Like Nyce, I've been doing this over two years as well, with a little blip earlier this year.
    It definitely is quite the rewarding lifestyle when dialed in and practiced properly.
    Fdnyceguy, having read MMMF, I'm curious as to what you are now doing differently? I'm assuming I missed something, as the book seemed like more or less a scientific explanation of the WD as is. Care to enlighten?

    Default There is fat. Then there is stubborn fat.

    I've been a fan of Ori for the last 5 years, but recently had to recant some of what he teaches. There's still a lot of good things in the book, but the general way of eating, and the one size fits all just doesn't work. The human body needs to receive nutrition more than once a day, and estrogen isn't always the problem. Actually estrogen has more to do with fat stores in the legs than the abdomen, which has to do with prolonged exposure to cortisol. If you really want to get rid of your "stubborn fat" you should seek out a BioSignature Practitioner in your area. Check out the website below to find one.

    Dano:

    Rather than espousing methods I've yet to fully employ, I'll refrain from posting any nutritional modifications at this time. Being familiar with both the Dragon Door Forum and the Defense Nutrition Forum, I know you'll understand.

    Testimonials after two days, or even two weeks, of following 'The Warrior Diet,' 'Viking Warrior Conditioning,' or some other program are, in my opinion, unfounded at best. The beginning of November will mark seven weeks. If my results are worth mentioning, I will undoubtedly let you, and others, know.

    For now, let's leave enlightenment to the Buddhas.

    I really like the timing of the WD. It took a bit to get used to it (a few false starts), but man, I tell ya, not having to drag a cooler full of chicken breasts to work like I used to on the old body builder diet (eg: eat every 3hrs) has been a blessing.

    I find that a light salad with an egg, maybe some almonds at lunch leaves me quite happy. On the rare days when I go out to lunch w/ other people and eat something heavy (burger, etc..) it feels like a lump of lead in my body and I am way more sluggish afterward. FWIW: I follow the primal blueprint in terms of food choices (due to gluten/milk issues)

    And not to shamelessly plug WD, but I also like his supplements. ITake a huge handful of them on an empty stomach and I dont get sick....Unlike the centrum multi's...
