    Day 3 of keto warrior

    Pros - cooking is easy, food is yummy, stomach is great, could see rib muscles at 5pm today, craving food, thinking clear, no upset stomach.

    Cons - was slightly tired today. this is also to do with winter starting last saturday. I am a welder by trade and work physically to.

    My food has been good, stuff like meat balls, veg soups, keto cheese cake.

    Todays food so far

    Nuts (at 2pm)

    4 keto thai fish cakes made with salmon, bass and prawns.

    rib eye steak, pate, fried egg, green beans, home made cream and butter pepper sauce

    keto pumpkin cheese cake with lemon zested cream

    plenty of water and tea's.

    All in all going good.

    My workouts are strange

    I train 3 days, I squat on each day and then do other stuff.

    Done 4 or 5 days on keto to break my junk cycle and feel great.
    Ate loads last night and was nice and lean today.

    Hows everyone else doing on it?

    With me, it seems like I have to keep my food late at night. Maybe it's just a scheduling thing. I usually like to have all my "supplies" in one shot. I usually just eat a stew with a bit of everything in it (for instance: beef, peas, potatoes, carrots, maybe corn, barley or quinoa. Maybe spinach in some- you get the idea.). Part of this is because I tend to get full real fast, even if I've been working out, so I don't want to be done after just a salad. The other part is, basically, laziness. Sometimes, I won't bother with all the parts if I have to go make each and every one of them. You CAN taste whether or not something is nutrient-rich, it seems. I definitely remember Ori saying something about that your cravings will let you know what your body is without. That seems to be true, too. When in doubt, go with unscrewed-around-with food, as fresh as you can get, and shoot for fats instead of carbs. It seems that your body can break fat down better (ironically, keeping you from getting fat) and it gives you more of a steady burn, instead of making your sugar spike & then crash- driving you to eat more to replenish it. What would be the case in a hunter/gatherer society? A good general rule, I think.

    Ya i am gonna start eating big stews and all for the winter. much more nutrient rich foods. no more sugary crap, making me feel rubbish.

    I will make some pasties tomorrow. they are pastry filled with mince meat, veg, potato, stock, and oven cooked. make it with potatoes or sweet potatoes.

    I like the idea of cooking stews with quinao. makes it very nurishing to.

    Great thread!

    I just came off my Warrior Diet, since it's time to bulk, which I find easier when eating more often.

    I have been doing the diet for 3 months and have to say I love it. I usually did cardio in the morning and ate a few apples during the day. Then worked out just prior to making a great meal for dinner. That worked great for me, "lean vise".
    Dinner setup was usually: Green salat then meat and boiled vegetables and a few hours later yoghurt+fruit+syrup or maybe just a tea with some honey or even peanuts+raisins.

    Since you don't have to spend all your willpower preparing breakfast and lunch I also find it that I make a lot better dinners(read; more healthy dinners) than I used to. Also if you don't get some filling foods in your 4-hour window you're fucked the next day

    After about 14 days my hunger during the day started to fade, which made the diet even more awesome. I'm not sure if my energy is better than before during the day, but it sure isn't worse.

    Hi all,

    Not to hijack the thread or anything, but I've recently started my own WD journey as well. My lifestyle and schedule has somehow inadvertently drawn me into it, and so this eating approach makes most sense to me. So I sort of feel that this diet was meant for me.

    Anyway, I have a quick question for all of you WD'ers out there: What's your take on sandwiches (e.g. peanut butter) as a sort of meal ender/dessert? I know refined sugars and pastries are prohibited in the diet, and I was just wondering if sandwiches fall under this category.

    Regards,

    Virgil

    Not Hijacking at all man. Glad to have you on board.
    To say pastries and all are prohibited is not necessarily true. I eat dessert every day and I look better now than ever. But make the deserts yourself so you know what goes in.

    The way I follow it is for 4 hours eat what ever the hell I like (within reason), so that would include a peanut butter sandich. I actually just ate a big cheese and meat platter and have a beer for the game. will have a pizza during the game later.

    I know I will wake up lean in the morning so its all good.

    The main thing is to monitor the diet. if your not losing, tighten it up, if your losing loads, keep doing what your doing

    It looks like your "eat whatever the hell you like within reason" style has been working well for you. So there have been no restrictions whatsoever?

    How about the others? What styles and twists have you employed in your own WD lifestyle?
