The Warrior Diet

This is a typical meal for me...

Steamed broccoli and cauliflower

Roast beef and squash with egg

More beef, more vegetables and a little bit of rice

Dessert was two tequila martinis and a few microbrews.

I've lost 20lbs eating like this (down to a svelte 225 :) but more importantly, I feel better throughout the day. I've found that breakfast and lunch tend to weigh me down and makes me feel sluggish and lazy throughout the day at a time when I need to be most productive.

"Break-fast" boosting the metabolism, yada, yada, I don't buy it! My energy levels are higher and I am more alert going through my day with little to nothing to eat.

Was this really how "warriors" or ancient civilizations ate? I don't know and I don't care. I've found a diet that not only keeps me lean but makes me feel good too!

Is it healthy to eat this way? When was the last time you ate that much vegetables?

Awesome results Dan! The Warrior Diet seems to work for alot of people! I have tried it.....was already light and felt I didn't have enough gas in the tank to train. But, the older I get the more I realize I don't need that many calories!

rock on!

I've been unintentionally following some of the warrior diet points lately and am coming to similar conclusions. More energy, less weighed down, less food fatigue (can't handle that 6-7 meals a day crap anymore). Glad to hear its working out for you.
