Several years ago when I began lifting kettlebells I was also introduced to Ori Hofmekler’s Warrior Diet. The general concept is undereat during the day, overeat in one big meal at night and stick to natural/organic sources of food. I never really paid much attention to it primarily because the idea of not eating during the day didn’t appeal to me and I had always had success with frequent-feeding programs such as Precision Nutrition.
Recently, after spending a good deal of time combing through the vast amount of information in Marty Gallgher’s new book The Purposeful Primitive the Warrior Diet started to make a lot more sense to me. Then I spent some time with several of my RKC colleagues who swear by it at the CK-FMS workshop.
I often treat my own training as a laboratory of sorts, testing things on myself, then on clients. Most recently I did this with a modified version of Alwyn Cosgrove’s Warp Speed Fat Loss and dug the results.
Anyway, the next experiment for me: The Warrior Diet. I am comitting to 100 days of it, beginning today, August 18th. To measure compliance, I’ll use the 90% rule of Precision Nutrition, which means that I’ll have 90 out of 100 days of compliance to the WD guidelines, minimum, since there is only 1 main meal each day.
I am excited to give it a go and will be posting updates as I go along.
