  • 200 Days of Primal Living and the Warrior Diet

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm a 39 year old male that is 5'7''.
    I took the following stats this morning (May 6, 2011): 186.4 lbs
    25.2% body fat

    My goal is to get to 10% body fat.

    I began the Warrior Diet on April 12, 2011. It's an intermittent fasting plan that has 2 phases.
    The first phase is Undereating: This is a 20-hour window that you eat nothing but fruit, raw veggies, and a little bit of light protein like yogurt, kefir, eggs, etc...
    The second phase is Overeating: This is a 4-hour window of eating your main meal (or meals) until you are satisfied.

    Now, I'm ready to go Primal. The notebook I'm using for my journal has 200 pages; therefore, my Primal/Warrior Diet journey will be for 200 days. I begin tomorrow (May 7, 2011).

    Here are my rules to live by for 200 days:

    1. No grains, dairy (except butter) or legumes.
    2. I will have potatoes/sweet potatoes/yams once or twice a week.
    3. I can have 3 cups of regular coffee and 1 cup of decaf coffee a day (coffee is my weakness ).
    4. No booze or recreational drugs (except caffeine).
    5. I will record my weight and body fat once every three weeks.

    Everyone out there is welcome to comment, criticize, offer suggestions, etc...
    I'll check back in tomorrow.

    My first challenge comes tonight. I'm going over a friend's house to watch the boxing match and there will be pizza, beer, etc....

    Have a great Saturday peeps!

      Take some primal snacks with you! A bag of pork rinds works well to quell salty, crunchy cravings and is primal. Beef jerky is good too. If you take a few minutes to plan ahead, staying primal isn't that hard to do.
      Newcomers: If you haven't read the book, at least read this thread ... and all the links!

            Yeah, I was interested to know as well. I guess he may have given up or dropped out of MDA.

                I recommend using fat calipers as probably the best way, but takes effort. Some people use the scales that estimate body fat.
