    The W a r r i o r Diet - Thoughts?

    Anyone tried this? Seems to be a seemingly good idea from an evolutionary standpoint. Kinda like intermittent fasting minus the 9-10 hour feeding window? Good for fat loss? Just looking for more info

    There is a whole diet plan behind the warrior that I don't subscribe too, but on some days I only eat once (the warrior) and on others I eat twice. It's hard to get enough protein though in one sitting so I eat twice in the evening more of the time. The fast five eating plan an IF plan with a smaller window of course. You can find that at fastfive.org. Martin Berkan leangains is also someone that knows his stuff about IFing.
    Regardless of the eating window size, I think that any IF plan that you can stick to will make fat loss easier.

    I simply can't eat that much food at once! Maybe if I kept it to beef, added fat and vegetables I could do it but then again I like more variety so my personal favorite is 2 meals within 5 or 6 hours of each other.

    I too have a hard time getting enough protein in a whole day, let alone one meal.

    Perhaps I need to break down and drop the 'whole foods' goal and just get a protein shake, eh?

    I'm conditioned to a daily 20 hour fast with a 4 hour window for one big meal and a little something else if needed. Unlike Stabby, I have well developed portion control issues with little difficulty eating enough in one sitting. I shudder to think of eating 3 squares again. I would balloon.

    lol Grol, this is how I feel! If I try to fit in 3 square meals, i get so bloated and gross! same if i try to fit a couple meals within a 4-5 hour window. eating once like the warrior diet seems to be the way for me i guess!

    You could eat 2500 calories if you did several hours of martial arts and some gym work outs. It works up an appetite. I have this book on loan from the library, however I want to finish The Great Cholestrol Con first, before I start reading it.

    Oh I can EASILY eat my 1500+ calories in a single meal!

    Lately I've been eating just one meal a day. With the summer heat and the lack of time, it's just easier to just eat dinner. Last couple days I did eggs for breakfast because I had time. Weekends are where I go wonky and graze all day, then feel like crap. I kinda like the one-big-meal thing. Less kitchen cleaning too!
