The Healthy Lifestyle Plan Scorecard

Today I'm going to introduce you to the Warrior Diet, a three-week plan to lose weight.

Shout to old people out there. Yes, you … midlifers, baby boomers or whatever category you fit into.

Do you want to lose weight? Didn't your current diet plan work?

Do you want to get rid of that piece of fat that just doesn't want to go away?

Many people are confused about what, how and when to eat.

Despite the diet books you've read and the programs you've tried, are you still lacking in energy, wearing excess body fat, and feeling physically exhausted? Do you sexually feel a shadow of your former self?

With sales of diet books skyrocketing, people have become increasingly obese! You don't lose weight when you read diet books. You lose weight by actually following a diet that works and stays with it.

I have a great diet plan for you.

Let me introduce you to the warrior diet. It was created by Ori Hofmekler, a former member of the Israeli special forces and popular writer in the health and fitness industry. It is based on warrior eating habits during ancient Greek and Roman times.

Warriors ate very little in the morning, exercised on an empty stomach, and had a feast at night. This balance between fasting and training kept her active and fit, slim and strong.

If you read my blogs regularly, you know that I am an advocate of intermittent fasting. The Warrior Diet is a type of food that goes through long periods of low food intake with short windows of overeating. It has been promoted as an effective way to lose weight and improve energy levels and mental clarity. The Warrior Diet is a type of intermittent fasting program that goes through 20-hour periods of low food intake with 4-hour periods of overeating.

I think it's worth trying it out. Do it for three weeks. Contact me if you would like assistance, but let me know how to do it and share your results with others in the comments section. If this works for you, share it with others so they can benefit.

What is the warrior diet?

The Warrior Diet is a kind of intermittent fasting that revolves around 20 hours of malnutrition, followed by four hours of overeating periods in which you eat as much as you want at night.

The warrior diet is based on the eating habits of old warriors who consumed little during the day and feasted at night.

It can help weight loss

A study that mimicked the Warrior diet (20-hour fast) found that people who consumed meals for more than four hours in the evening lost more weight than those who consumed the same amount of calories throughout the day ingested. In addition, those who ate one meal a day showed significantly reduced fat mass and greater muscle mass. Warrior Diet supporters claim that this method of eating burns fat, improves concentration, increases energy levels, and stimulates cell repair.

Attention

The Warrior diet can lead to binging and cleaning behaviors, especially for people at risk of developing eating disorders. This way of eating is not suitable for everyone, including pregnant women and children.

Here is the warrior diet plan that was created for you.

Three-week three-phase plan

First, try a three-week, three-phase plan to try out the warrior diet.

Phase I (first week): "Detox"

20 hours under food

Eat 20 hours during the day:

During the 20-hour period of fasting, you should eat too little and eat only small amounts of food, including:

• Raw fruits, including apples, bananas, pineapples and berries
• Raw vegetables such as broccoli, leafy greens, mushrooms and carrots
• vegetable juices
• Dairy products such as yogurt and cottage cheese
• Clear broth
• Hard boiled eggs
• Lots and lots of water, more than 8 glasses of water a day. You can drink 9-10 glasses of water during your fasting phase. Make sure you drink filtered water. You can also enrich your water with nutrients by adding cucumber, mint, lemon, cinnamon, etc. Drinking water helps you to feel full and to keep your body functions running.

As an advocate of fasting, I prefer that you just cut out all the calories and drink lots of water, herbal teas, and black coffee. Do it either way. Maybe try both?

After 20 hours, people can take essentially all of the foods they want within a four-hour window of overeating.

4 hours over the meal

Eat during the four-hour overnutrition:

• salad with oil and vinegar dressing,

A large or multiple meals of:

Plant proteins (beans),
Wheat-free whole grain products such as rice, oats or flat bread,
• Small amounts of cheese
• Cooked vegetables.

No processed foods, preservatives, added sugar and artificial sweeteners. These are very harmful to health.

Phase II (week two): "High Fat"

As the first week for the 20 hours under food.

4 hours over the meal

During the four-hour overeating, this is the high-fat part of the plan. Eat:

• salad with oil and vinegar dressing,
A large or multiple meals of:
Plant proteins (beans),
• Small amounts of cheese
• Cooked vegetables.
• Lean animal protein like chicken or fish
• A handful of nuts

Phase III (week three): "Completion of fat loss"

This phase alternates between periods with high carbohydrate and high protein intake.

1-2 days high in carbohydrates
1-2 days high in protein and low in carbohydrates
1-2 days high in carbohydrates
1-2 days high in protein and low in carbohydrates

On carbohydrate-rich days: Under-eat for 20 hours with vegetable juices, clear broth, dairy products (yogurt, cottage cheese), hard-boiled eggs and raw fruits and vegetables. During the four-hour overfeeding:

• Eat a salad with oil and vinegar dressing
• Cooked vegetables,
• Small amounts of animal protein
• A main carbohydrate like corn, potatoes, pasta, barley or oats.

On protein-rich, low-carbohydrate days: Under-eat for 20 hours during the day with vegetable juices, clear broth, dairy products (yogurt, cottage cheese), hard-boiled eggs and raw fruits and vegetables. During the four-hour overnutrition in the evening:

• Eat a salad with oil and vinegar dressing,
• 8-16 ounces (227-454 grams) animal protein
• Side of cooked, non-starchy vegetables.
• A small amount of fresh tropical fruit can be eaten for dessert.

Take a multivitamin during the three weeks. While you should eat a varied diet to ensure that you get all the necessary micronutrients, a daily multivitamin serves as an insurance policy.

My recommendation after the 3 weeks is to go to 16: 8 intermittent fasting.

Don't forget to exercise. Warriors spent a lot of time fighting or hunting, which helped them use a lot of energy. So if you follow the Warrior diet, you should exercise regularly to consume energy and get back in shape.

Good luck with that and don't forget to share the results you achieved.
