    Default The Prison Diet

    So I've been doing what the Coach has advocated - eating three square meals a day, and was wondering if anyone has anything to share about their experience with this diet.

    Personally, I've seen better gains with 5-6 small meals a day, but I've only tried this diet for 2 weeks, so I might need to give it more time.

    I understand that if your goal is to lose weight the concentration camp diet wins hands down over the prison diet. Personally I like IF because to me I feel like I am not even on a diet. It (Warrior Diet) is the way I eat now without even consciously thinking "oh I'm on a diet" - its my normal way of eating without any other thoughts attached to it. And thats the secret...Dennis

    Concentration camp diet? That's a real thing?

    My goal is to build muscle and honestly in Asia (Singapore), 3 meals a day is pretty much the standard for everyone.

    It's just that I've actually been on the small but often eating habit for quite a while, and was wondering whether anyone else can attest to the effectiveness of eating just 3 square meals a day.

    Concentration camp diet was my lame attempt at humor. Three meals a day is what many people do. But its what the meal consists of and how much that determines the outcome. For muscle and size just lift heavy - DL, Bench Press, Squat.. and plenty, protein and veg/fruit...Dennis

    Thanks ad.

    I sort of figured out that it's about the portion, and not so much of the frequency.

    I only do bodyweight though (no lifting/iron) so was kind of curious about the experiences people had with the diet combined with bodyweight training only.

    What is your intent with this change? If what you were doing was working, why would you need to change it?

    The 'Prison' diet that Coach Wade recommended is much more convenient(less preparation time and eating out= more money and time saved), and what he said about three square meals a day really struck a chord with me. I'm almost on 1 month on the diet now, and I can say that it has really helped me to get leaner.

    hey dude, I'm in Singapore too, and you're probably gonna face these issues.

    1. If you read what Wade describes to be the routine, it essentially incorporates intermittent fasting. From what I understand, it appears that there are periods of at least 12 ~ 14 hours during which they are not fed. This could also extend to 16 hours if you do not have access to the commissary.
    2. Singapore? The bullshit they sell at hawker centers is not gonna cut it. Food in Singapore practically fulfils the trifecta of salt-sugar-fat. Tell me one dish in any hawker center that doesn't have copious amounts of salt-sugar-fat? You'd be hard pressed to find any.


    Personally, you're gonna need lots and lots of protein and greens in order to make any significant gains if you're eating out a lot, which I expect to the case in Singapore.

    Its not difficult at all to get into a caloric surplus, but for body composition purposes, you're gonna need to cook your own food. If you can, it really doesn't matter if you're eating less across more meals, or more across less meals.

    Eat into a caloric surplus, with a good split of your macros, and you'll probably grow.

    Eating three meals a day seems to be an American invention & one that doesn't work quite as advertised. I've noticed that "running on empty" seems to slow me down a lot less than if I "fuel up" before doing something. Every time I ate steadily through the day, I was just awake & didn't have any "charge." It was like being stuck in neutral, basically.

    It seems like two meals a day & eating the large meal before sleeping (whether it's a nap or for a longer time) is a really common theme. I remember hearing the Mongols would have a light breakfast & then have dinner at night. there is a constant "old school" theme of not eating a lot before doing physical activity like running (or wrestling, I can tell you that from personal history).

    I'd imagine that you might get a quick jolt right after you eat because of the fairly high amount of sugar that's in a lot of American food, but that's all. I'd notice a few minutes of "get up & go" at most before I'd hit something of a stall.

    Another thing is that it seems like smaller meals throughout the day tends to work fairly well for a lot of people simply because it's not big enough of a meal to get in the way too much. That & it would be quicker to digest. It's sort of like what Ori had said in that Warrior Diet book about how you CAN during the day outside of those meals, but the more you do it the more it'll reduce the effect. It seems to be a reduced effect, but not as much as the other way would have.
