    Hi Eoin. No issue for not taking some carbs pre / post workout ?

    Haven't used IF or WD for long, but got some fat to drop and a somehow similar schedule (exercise at noon), so I guess I'll take inspiration from your regimen, already got the morning's double espresso .

    But got lot of cardio during the workout (30 mn exercise bike + CC + running (35 mn now, but more in the next weeks) + CC2 ), so I think I'll have to add some carbs. Here's what I'm planning :

    11:30 : one banana.
    12:00 ~ 13:30 : workout.
    2:00 pm : recovery meal (one ex breakfast cake serving, roughly one banana, 2 eggs, one tablespoon rice flour, one tablespoon coconut, one tablespoon almonds powder & some berries).
    A few fruits during the afternoon.
    Main meal starting 8 pm or 9 pm (11 or 12 pm on systema days).

    Is this a good idea ? Don't know if that's WD compliant (carbs + fruits during the day), and if the post workout meal is needed (or is enough).

    Hey Olive I missed you around these forums!

    For me at least the Warrior Diet is exceptional for fat loss, I could loose weight a lot quicker than I am, but I really want to progress in training whilst doing so, hence a mere 20% reduction in calories for me.

    I have never had an issue with exercise and carbs. It makes no difference to me ever. However, the longest I'd make a habit of running would be 30mins and i wasn't trying to improve, just burn calories, so I never tracked progress. I don't know how carbs effect my cardio. Even my cardio now (sprints 15mins) are too short really for me to gauge.
    TLDR: I don't know how carbs effect my cardio, but they don't affect my resistance training.

    What's really allowed during the day is fresh fruit and veg, but some lean protein (6 0z) is also fine if you want it.

    He says to abstain from all starchy carbs like bread, pasta, flour, etc. However, in the case of endurance athletes there is an exception to this rule where some are allowed around the exercise. Have you read the book? I didn't pay attention to that part since I am not interested in endurance sports.

    Your routine looks good to me. I'm sure the refined carbs in your post workout meal would be fine. The best rule of thumb is to see how you're feeling afterwards. If your energy level is good and hunger is tolerable until your main meal without having to "overeat" then I'm sure you're fine!

    Black coffee is an amazing appetite suppressant, I use it 2 times a day mostly. How is your CC routine coming along?

    BTW overall my appetite has gotten lower on this diet, but it has taken a good month. (with 2 cheats)

    Thanks Eoin. I'll try to follow this plan for some times and see what happens. I've read and still have the book, but it was something like two years ago.

    My CC is... stagnating, haven't trained much during the holidays and now the lots of cardio ( after 6 months with almost no running ) are clearly hampering CC training. But I've got to follow the cardio protocol at least until november (doctor's orders) to run again without waking knee issues I have since last february.

    Anyway, I try to train each move once a week, ideally twice a week with 2 different workouts :

    A : pushups, pullups, leg raises, bridges

    B : pushups, grip work, neck training

    But it's somehow hard, especially the days where I end with the CC training (can't do L-sits, have to do the trifecta on evenings when rested).

    Hopefully, that's gonna be easyer in november, when the cardio protocol will be over.

    I'm really sorry to hear about your knee, I had problems with mine (due to diet) back in February also, thankfully it only lasted around 2 months but it was quite bad. I had a resurgence of it two months also until I changed to this way of eating and it fixed it.

    I like the workouts, the same muscles but with a different plan of attack. I have to design a new one soon too whenever I feel I'm ready for handstands (still working away on close push ups). Really looking forward to it.
