    Default Warrior Diet energy problems

    Hello everyone.
    First things first. Please excuse my English. I`m not a native speaker.
    Now to the point - I think the title explains it all. I started WD about 8 months ago. My energy was enormous for the first few days (especially for day 1). Then it gradually started to fall down. I didn`t do anything, didn`t change anything but yet I don`t have my previous alertness, nor the same amount of energy. So I decided to stop the diet a few times. And that was a pretty bad decision! I felt miserable! The problem is when I got back to it I never experienced the same amount of energy and alertness like the first time.
    What happened? Did I got used to WD? I tried to fast during the undereating phase, but it didn`t really matter.
    At the moment my routine looks like this - I get up at 8 am, grab a cup of coffee(no sugar), go to university, do my stuff there, eat a banana or an apple around 4-5pm and after I get home at 7-8pm I eat my huge dinner. I go to sleep around 12 and in the morning I feel quite tired.
    Where is my mistake? What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks in advance.

    A lot of beginners to this eating program make the same mistake that you did. So no biggie, but just because you are in the underrating phase doesn't mean that you don't just very little.
    the warrior diet allows you to have berries , plain yogurt, green vegetables, hard boiled eggs and so on.

    Play with it by first eating a bit more(but not a lot) and then find out what foods help you the most the have the energy that you need.

    Wait, so what was the problem? I notice my energy dipping, too- but I think it's a sleep thing (not having the T.V. off makes for less darkness & there's apparently some kind of melatonin thing with that which can actually make you very depressed).

    Good point about the t.v. Tinker around with the Under Eating Phase. Also vitamin supplements. But you say its going good now. Warrior Diet is the best thing out there imho...Dennis

    Wolfeye, eating a bit more during the undereating phase helped a lot. I try to stay in this half hungry, half satisfied state. An apple at morning with a cup of coffee and some nuts/banana sometime during the day works great for me.
    Sleep is another major issue I got. I remember back in the days I had to get up at 6 am to go to school. The night before usually I would go to sleep around 12 and just collapse on the bed. I was so sleep deprived that in the afternoons, especially after a good lunch, I was unable to get anything done. The worse part is I had to study, I just had to so I forced my self into reading the damn biology and chemistry books. I remember I drugged myself with coffee full of sugar and milk. I was a wreck. This was a terrible experience for me. This got so out of hand that I would wake up at 2 am with no idea what time is it, then I would get out of bed, brush my teeth, have a breakfast and then my father would wake up too and tell me it`s not time for school...
    So I promised myself I would never do that again, I would never push myself to the limit. I really thought things will get better eventually. But it never happened, I kept feeling like garbage. Problems with digestive system started, problems with sleep, I had to move to another city to study in the university there, then I had a few issues with the university aaand I got two injuries - frozen left shoulder and painful knee. Now those injuries really got me emotionally. If you workout regularly you`ll know what I`m talking about.
    People ask me "What happened? Why did you injure yourself?" and I just say "Stress happened."
    I guess you are thinking "This guy is a mess."
    Yeah. I am. But please don`t think that I didn`t try to fix things. I knew something is not okay, and I tried to fix it, but I never knew what`s that broken thing. People would tell me "You`re tired, cause you get up early and you study a lot.", but I think the real reason proved to be elsewhere.
    So several months ago I read an article about WD, then I read the book and here I am, trying to fix the damn mess. WD alone fixed a loooot of things - energy problems, digestive system problems, mental clarity...
    Now I`m trying to get my sleep in place. It looks like I`m a night owl (mom is). Staying off the laptop at night seems to help a lot, also throwing away afternoon coffee (I dont need it anyway so...), reading a book before bed, having a "sleep ritual", a diary and stuff like that. I plan to implement all of them by the end of the weekend. It`s strange that I don`t remember ever in my life to have fallen asleep around 10pm. That`s like... never happened to me, I guess.
    So... this is pretty much my story. This is how I got here. I posted it, because I feel that maybe it will help somebody else with the same problems.

    Ok, so it has been almost a week since I`ve started dealing with my insomnia and getting up at 7 o`clock. Now it`s safely to say that I pretty much fixed my bad sleeping habits. I wake up around 7am and go to bed around 22:30 aaaand.... wait for it... fall asleep in about 10 minutes.
    My roommate is typical morning person. He got used with me sleeping 10 hours and still feeling tired. Couple of days ago, when I woke up with the sunrise, he was like "Wtf man? I cant believe you did it!"
    So, if you have insomnia, try the same, drag yourself out of bed at 6-7am for a few days. I`m still getting used to it though. I`ve never ever in my life done that, but looks like it works...
