This diet is perfect for busy people who want to find a way to stay organized and streamline the dieting process. It's based on solid scientific principles that set it apart from other kinds of diet plans, and it eliminates the need to spend copious amounts of time poring over food plans, preparing food, and counting every calorie. This simple diet plan can help you stay organized, keep your day running efficiently, and help you lose those stubborn pounds.
The Warrior Diet cuts right to the heart of why most diets don't work. It uses a scientifically supported approach that works with day-night cycles for optimum nutrition, health, and weight loss. Contrary to what you may have heard, self-esteem and other emotional issues aren't why most diets fail. The Warrior Diet explains the real reasons why conventional diets just don't work.
The Warrior Diet busts the following diet myths:
Myth: Never skip breakfast.
Fact: When you first wake up in the morning, your body is still performing important detox and cleansing functions. Eating right when you wake up interrupts this cycle and decreases your energy level.
Myth: Eat before you exercise.
Fact: In order to utilize energy from food, it must first be fully digested. Food eaten right before exercise does not have time to be converted to useful energy, and the process of digesting the food robs your body of the energy it needs for exercise.
Myth: Don't eat at night.
Fact: There is no scientific evidence to support the idea that night-eating causes weight gain. This is true if you dump a large meal onto a poor daytime diet, but eating a properly balanced meal at night can actually halt cravings and increase energy to help you lose weight.
Myth: Fat makes you fat.
Fact: This is a simplistic idea that doesn't take into account the many different types of fat and their functions in the body. Fat calories aren't necessarily stored as fat more easily than other types of calories.
Myth: Carbs are bad for you.
Fact: This is only true if you eat a diet based heavily on refined sugars and processed carbs. Carbohydrates perform critical functions in the body, and eliminating them can have serious health consequences.
Myth: Count calories to lose weight.
Fact: Not all calories are created equal. The type of calories and timing their consumption is far more important than calorie counts.
Myth: Eat whatever you want in moderation.
Fact: What seems "moderate" to you may have profound effects on your body. A clean diet is important for health, fat loss, and energy.
Myth: Use low carb products to lose weight.
Fact: Many of these products contain chemicals and unhealthy ingredients that can overburden the body's system, making it more difficult to lose weight.
Myth: Building muscles requires calculated amounts of protein based on body weight.
Fact: Protein needs are highly individual. While protein is important, hormonal balance, exercise routine, overall nutritional status, and timing of meals play a more important role in determining protein needs than body weight.
Myth: Eat a fixed ratio of protein, fat, and carbohydrates.
Fact: There is no one size fits all macronutrient ratio. We are programmed to eat like our caveman ancestors, and ancient man had no time to be concerned with exact ratios of protein, fat, and carbs.
Conventional diets are almost universally based on one-size-fits all formulas and equations – who can stick to this kind of regimen for very long? It's not possible, or even healthy, to eat the exact same number of calories and types of foods day in and day out.
Day-night cycling has been the cornerstone of human life for millennia. Modern life has disrupted this all-important cycle. The key to rediscovering good health and nutrition, and looking and feeling great, is working within this important natural cycle.
The Warrior Diet uses a system of undereating during the day and overeating at night. This is similar to a rotation diet, except instead of cycling for days or weeks, the same cycle is repeated daily. If you've ever fasted during the day, then you may have noticed a greater feeling of energy and alertness. This is because undereating during the day stimulates the sympathetic nervous system for increased energy, efficient fat burning, and heightened ability to manage stress.
The overeating phase of the diet stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes calm and relaxation at night, and aids in efficient digestion. Stimulating the PNS also promotes fat metabolism during the daylight hours, and protein synthesis for cell repair and regeneration at night.
Not only is this diet based on sound principles and innovative science, it works well for busy people who want to take charge of life and stay organized. You can lose weight, and do it in a way that frees you up to spend more time on other important tasks.
