What To Eat (Overeating phase)
“The Warrior Diet is based on the principle of eating one large meal per day, preferably at night. During this meal, you can eat as much as you want from all food groups (protein, fat, and carbohydrates), as long as you follow the Warrior Diet rules of eating.” [Excerpt: The Warrior Diet]
Start with leafy green vegetables (such as romaine lettuce, red leaf lettuce, arugula, parsley, endives).
Continue with protein (such as fish, seafood, eggs, beans, cheese), cooked vegetables (such as broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, carrots, squash, mushrooms, eggplant, beet greens, kale, collard greens), and fat (such as essential fatty acid oils, olive oil, almonds, avocado, butter).
Finish with carbohydrates (such as rice, potatoes, corn, yams, quinoa, barley) or finish with raw nuts or seeds (such as almonds, pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds).
Stop eating when you feel much more thirst than hungry. [Excerpt: The Warrior Diet]

The Warrior Workout
Ori states, “The goal of this training program is to enable you to reach your body’s potential and maintain it.” What he calls “body potential,” he defines as function, not fashion. For a more in-depth look into this training regimen, you can find this in Chapter 14 called The Warrior Workout: Controlled-Fatigue Training. Here’s a download of some of these exercises with a bonus of delicious recipes that you can eat on the Warrior Diet.
That’s it, I plan on starting this lifestyle next week and documenting what I notice on Instagram. I may even try some of the controlled-fatigue training. Follow me and see if you may want to give the Warrior Diet a try.
