Warrior diet/Intermittent fasting

Friends,

I have been looking at the two above diets mostly because the set up would be good for my lifestyle.

I was wondering if anyone has done this diet?and what results did you get?

Intermittent fasting, yes. What's a warrior diet though?

I do the Leangains protocol and find it much easier to manage my weight than conventional dieting. Once you've been on it a week or so you don't really get hungry in your fasting window.
 
The warrior diet is intermittent fasting, but with a smaller eating window. Basically you eat only one meal a day.

All of these systems and diets work if applied correctly, so if one of these appears to fit your current lifestyle and make things easier... Go for it.

one meal a day, how does that work?
 
also im interested about how people managed to do anything of intensity with no fuel in them. The idea of having a 7 hour window to eat your requirements interests me as it must mean that by evening/bed time you are stuffed but with the same macros, unless ive got that wrong.

Did IF for 2 years - really enjoyed it, worked well with my routine and got reasonably lean. Problem is thats I found it difficult to gain mass. On some fast days I'd do the equivalent of the Warrior diet with one main meal in the evening. 
 
I now have protein only AM but still use the IF template, the most important thing for me was getting most klcals either post-workout on training days or in the evening on non-training days. The biggest advantage here is the sustainability of this method, and this will be the biggest determinant of success for any type of 'diet'.

Everything you need to know about leangains is free at www.leangains.com
 
The warrior diet, you just eat one giant meal in the evening that covers all your caloric/macro needs. I haven't tried it personally, didn't fancy trying to cram 2500 cals in one meal!

I love IF and have been using it on and off for years now. Definitely great for calorie management and recomp goals. I even use it whilst adding weight. Tried them all, ESE, lean gains, warrior 4 hour window to 12 hour window. I've found lean gains the most effective and sustainable over the long term ( 8 hour window)
 
My fasting window is usually something like 12pm to 8pm, however it varies and sometimes I only fast for 14 or 15 hours but you get all the hormonal benefits of fasting after 12 hours anyway ,not to mention reducing your fed window any amount helps with calorie control.

One meal! I'd have to do it with 0 fibre

If my primary goal was to lose weight and I had no social life, no family and lived alone my choice would be warrior diet, I dropped so much weight so quickly it was unreal. Consuming more than 2000kcals in one sitting and hitting macro targets is hard believe me.
 
As stated though it needs to be sustainable. Is eating once a day, refusing to eat out, missing social and family events sustainable...no its more like an eating disorder

Re: Warrior diet/Intermittent fasting 2014/10/16 14:23:42 (permalink)
just read over the lean gains site - I work out 3/4 times a week weights and 3/4 cardio sessions (normally following weights)
 
1 PM or around lunch/noon: Meal one. 40 gram protein shake, 150ml veg and lentil soup, 120gram chicken breast.
6:30 PM: Pre-workout meal. 2 oat cakes, 40 gram protein shake with extra supplements
8 PM: Post-workout meal 120gram chicken breast, 50 gram pasta with pasta sauce, veg, 2 lean bacon medallions, followed by bowl of quaker oats with 400ml of skimmed milk. 
 
apart from the eggs I have for breakfast, protein shake sometimes before bed and quest bar during the day if im hungry the above is what i normally eat anyway just not as condensed.
 
i used the suggestion on the lean gains site - does it look right?

I like intermittant fasting , well alternate day fasting to be precise.
Not sure I could the one meal a day "Warrior" diet though.

Did you do any explosive exercises or sport whilst doing IF




Routine? I do a very simple upper/lower split with compounds. 
 
You can include any explosive exercises or sports with IF, the key is to adjust your macros / timings - this is outlined in the ripped.jp website.

I used IF to get into my avi condition and win a SUC comp on here. My eating window was often in the region of four -5 hours. I never had any problem training fasted around 2-4pm, although I did use a BCAA based pre-workout.

No biggie like, there are a lot worse things for you than using steroids, I mean I probably shouldn't have been smoking crack or getting into bar fights at your age TBH  - drab4

That's some serious condition Pagan!
I'm currently having nuts mid morning. Wpi + water  lunch and carb up in the evening with one big feed.
So always plenty of energy for the morning workouts.
