Warrior Diet Questions

My take on this is a little different. I was diagnosed as a diabetic a couple years ago. So, my dietary needs/restrictions are slightly modified. Ironically, since I started the WD, things have been going well for me, relatively speaking. Last week, I was very conscious of my carb & sodium intake amounts. My blood sugar dropped to 90 on Wednesday, then down again to 70 on Thursday. Now, my normal readings are between 105-120. So, while not bottoming out, very low. So, I had to take a couple days to balance things out. Except for those two days, things have gone well for me.
I have to have a protein to take my meds in the mornings, so that is always a protein shake. I will have an apple or two clementines mid morning. I have incorporated hourly walking, 250 steps thanks to my Fitbit Charge 2, and I walk over lunch. After my long lunch walk, another protein shake and an apple or two clementines are lunch. While I know that the fructose is not great for me, the fruit is natural, which I figure is better in the long run for me. Dinner is almost always after my S&S session, so I eat healthy, chicken, beef, or pork, with veggies & a carb. My cheat days are always “Faturday”. I am down 15 pounds over the last 6 weeks, which is good, as this means I am gradually losing the weight, which will be easier to maintain.
So, I under-eat through the day, and have one meal between 7-8 pm Sunday-Friday, with a snack if I am still hungry. I eased into the program, and I feel better on a daily basis than I have in a while, YMMV. Best of luck to you @morrisda.
