    Default Warrior Diet advice..

    Hi this is my first post on this forum..

    Age 29 , 5'9, BW : 150 pounds BF : 8%

    I have been successfully following paleo diet for quite sometime now. I modified the diet with the use of more fatty cuts of meat, raw goats dairy, kefir and marginal use of carbs like buckwheat, sweetpotato, brown rice and beans (only in the last meal ). I also consume night shades from time to time.

    I am planning on embarking on Warrior's diet because....

    1 Because of my very hectic schedule I don not have the previlege of eating 3-6 meals a day.
    2 My energy levels are very high when I under eat during the day which has a very positive, profound effect on my work performance,
    3 Great sense of well being and zero mood swings,

    This is my meal plan which I am planning to follow...Any help would be greatly appreciated..

    Upon awakening

    A glass of water with raw apple cider or freshly squeezed lemon.

    Meal 1

    Fruit ( banana, apple, red grapes or berries )
    Tea


    Meal 2

    2 poached eggs or a small serving of fish
    Raw salad ( spinach, lettuce, parsley, onions and garlic)
    Tea

    Meal 3

    Small serving of either one ( raw kefir, raw goats milk )
    or Handful of raw nuts ( almonds, brazil nuts, pistachios )
    Coffee

    Meal 4

    Raw salad ( lettuce, spinach, parsley, cherry tomatoes, olives )
    Protein ( Beef, Bison, Lamb, Veal, Chicken )
    Cooked veggies ( broccoli, kale, cauliflower )
    Carbs ( buckwheat, brown rice, sweet potato )
    A glass of red wine and a chunk of 100% dark chocolate every alternate day.

    I also use coconut oil and butter for cooking, I use evo and balsamic vinegar as my salad dressing.

    Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Looks good

    Overall I think it looks good. Make sure you get enough calories in to maintain your weight/shape, as you are 8%bf, unless you want to go lower. I'm not sure what your meals looked like before this, but that is the only worry. A lot of the times in the beginning of the diet the calorie cut is huge because you aren't used to the main meal. The meals will usually get bigger over time though.

    I wouldn't be too worried about planning your meals out. I found the best feelings and progress I had during the warriors diet was when I ate when I felt I needed it. The first time I tried it out I thought I needed food so I ate, but looking back I just ate to ate, not because I needed it. More often, during my second round with the WD, I was fasting through out the day, training at night, and than eating after training. During the fast Black Coffee and Tea was regular, but that was it. I gained strength this way too, as well as lost weight.

    Good luck and I hope it works out for ya.

    Cheers,
    John

    I agree with John. Your diet looks spot on. If you are comfortable undereating during the day and make sure you eat well in the evening you will do great. As he says make sure you have enough calories and listen to your body and tweak things if necessary. You are the best judge.

    Thanx for the input guys. I accidentally stumbled upon this kind of eating because of my busy work schedule. I never thought I could remain this long without food but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise since my work performance skyrocketed. Intensity in the gym is as high as ever.

    I was having three square meals a day before this with a light breakfast and lunch followed by a big dinner so the transition is gonna be easy.

    Thanx once again.

    For concise directions, for the application of the Warrior Diet, it'd be amiss to not recommend 'The Warrior Diet Fat Loss Program' E-book.

    Though your weight and body fat do not require fat loss, by any means, the E-book will briefly explain the science and approach behind the Warrior Diet, as well as give you ideas how to cycle in different fuels, such as fat and protein.

    Best of luck with your adopting your new nutritional strategy.

    I strongly believe that after successfully implementing the Warrior diet principles one would never resort back to the conventional diets.

    Here is my sample day plan...

    Upon awakening...

    1 cup of tea with lime, ginger, raw honey or raw apple cider.

    Meal 1
    A small cup of raw kefir or yogurt with some cinnamon sprinkled.
    A fruit and a cup of freshly brewed organic coffee


    Meal 2

    2-3 eggs scrambled or sardines with raw spinach, parsley and arugula. or
    Vegetable or fruit smoothie.
    Cup of herbal tea.

    Meal 3
    A small cup of yogurt or kefir with berries or
    A glass of raw milk with cinnamon, spirulina, raw cacao, cholrella.


    Meal 4

    Eggs and avacados, onions,garlic.
    Meat and cooked veggies ( eggplant, broccoli, kale )
    Baked potatoes or black beans and brown rice
    Chunk of dark chocolate
    A glass of red wine or herbal tea.

    Some of the things which I have noticed are...

    1 Sky rocketing energy levels and a great impact on mental clarity and focus.
    2 Strong drive to perform the very best at work.
    3 Strength levels in the gym are increasing.
    4 I never had a problem with my bodycomposition so as lean as I have ever been.
    5 CAUTION ( this is gross ) My poop has dramatically improved. Which means I am digesting most of my food perfectly, I guess.
    6 Sound sleep in the nights.
    7 Surprisingly whenever I am hungry I just crave meat and veggies as opposed to junk food. Me and my girlfriend do have our days when we might share a small scoop of icecream or gorge on a pastry or a slice of pizza but this is generally after the last meal. So far so good..

    I do a hybrid of WD and ESE ( I am trying to lose bf).... Everything looks great though, the only downside to WD is that after some big meals I get really sleepy and sometimes given the events of the day, I still need to get stuff done or work out. It's challenging once you get so sleepy!!!!

    Kefir... I tried that stuff and literally almost vomited.... I'd like to drink it, but it's one of the few things I can't eat/drink.....

    For me my last meal of the day is pretty late...somewhere between 10-30 or 11-00 four days a week and around 9-00 three days a week. Surprisingly I don't feel drowsy even after the big meal in the night but it definitely contributes to a better sleep. I generally get raw cow's or goat's kefir from a farm. Kefir is a very rich source of probiotics with heaps of other benefits. The only downside is it is pretty much an acquired taste.

    Take a probiotic. I use the one sold here, one capsule every AM and another PM.
