    or is that where breakfast comes in? should you still eat something after waking up to let your body think theres food around? even if its just an apple or something?

    BTW im new to this forum, this is the only place i've found people that follow the WD, thanks for the help guys

    Starvation mode as given in popular media just doesn't exist. The body doesn't start freaking out about a lack of food after 8 hours, or even 16. I think its more like 3 days although I am fuzzy on the actual number.

    Not to mention that if you eat a large meal in the evening you are generally still digesting it the next morning, the body isn't concerned cause it's still chowing down on last nights input.

    I've done what all the experts say. Count calories, 6 meals a day, don't eat 3-4 hours before bedtime. These methods have left me mentally exhausted with trying to keep up with all the meals and math. I have gone through the posts here and in other areas and finally have been persuaded to try this out. Bought the ebook, and being only 10 bucks, if it doesn't work it'll definitely not set me back too much. But I've been treading water and not getting anywhere with my weight. Save for the first 2-3 months of being here I lost 12lbs, but since then plateau'd and haven't been able to get any lower. I chalk that up to being constantly on-the-go for the first part of my deployment and just forcing my body to churn out tons of calories (I can't keep that up for an entire year). So I really hope this helps and thanks to all who've posted. Save for the yahoo who's plugging his merchandise, I hope everyone has reported this joker like I have.

    No offense, but its right there..... Its about specific hormones in play at certain times.... Ultimately, insulin is the hormone that causes your body to store fat and build muscle, insulin increases are triggered on the WD during your feast. When you are fasting, coritsol and glucogen (sp?) are the dominant hormones, these are the hormones that tell your body to use stored fat as a fuel source....

    It's all in the book.

    Well you have the real "the Warrior Diet" book, to turn to. If you want it more "scientific" turn to "minimum fat, maximum muscle".
