The Warrior Diet is a natural way to lose weight. It’s a call-back to the ways of our ancestors, who didn’t lead a life where they’d eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They had no specialists telling them that 3 to 5 meals a day are the only way to lose weight. Instead, they followed their own instinct – and they were right.
In reality, the Warrior Diet is a 20-hour fast, and it is one of the oldest methods of fasting. Its name derives from the fact that it is based on the diet of ancient warriors, who used to eat very little during the day but feasted at night which is, however, is not the healthiest time for a meal.
It’s definitely not the easiest variation of intermittent fasting, easier than the OMAD though, but it is reported to be very efficient once your body gets used to the change in your meal patterns. What does a typical day look like when you follow the Warrior Diet?
During the day, you are encouraged to eat as little as possible. You may be allowed to consume small amounts of dairy, eggs, raw vegetables and fruits. You are also welcome to drink black coffee, tea, and copious amounts of water.
After 20 hours, you have a four-hour eating window during which you can eat most things that you want. However, if you want to achieve the best results, you should focus on healthy, unprocessed, organic food.
Of course, everything has to be done in moderation. If you eat unhealthily during the eating window, your results will be less significant than those of a person who does stick to a more strict diet. However, if you make healthy eating choices, you can eat as much as you like.
The upside of that is that you won’t feel hungry – at least not after the initial period of adjustment. Your body will get used to the way you’re eating now, as well as to the Warrior Diet foods you will be swapping to. This diet is one of the few that allow for really big portions during the four-hour window.
This isn’t a diet that you are meant to start from day today. Instead, you will be easing into it to allow your body the time to prepare for your new, healthier lifestyle. What benefits can you expect from this diet?
