Warrior Diet Update

I'm about two months into the warrior diet. So far it is excellent. It was a little shaky in the beginning, but now it's easy. I experienced an odd 'turnover' of my body about two weeks after the TSC. That's the best way I can think to describe it, a 'turnover'. All is new again. My strength, endurance, and general well being are all off the charts. I'm doing 5 minutes of get ups with the 32 kilo, Max VO2 with the 20 kilo, and generally just blowing through my workouts like they're nothing. I am eating better than I ever have and can't imagine eating the way I used to. I actually had a nightmare the other night that someone was trying to make me eat bad food. It was like a whopper or something. There is no downside to this.
This morning I stopped at this great open air market called 'Andy's' in Sebastopol. When I walked in I was thrown at first by this weird smell. Then I realized what the smell was. It was food. A grocery store is supposed to smell like food! When was the last time you walked into a Safeway and smelled food? Man, we took a wrong turn somewhere and haven't gotten back on the right road since.


  1. this ' turnover' is not unusual at all after a big peak like you had. that type of intense effort can jump you up to a higher level from which new peaks will be scaled. well done on the training as well as the warrior diet. once you get the hang of it the whole eating paradigm changes drastically. very liberating imo, NOT to have to eat all the time.

  2. Thanks for the insight Rif, good to know. It's definitely easier not to eat, and I went a week pretty much not eating anything during the day, but scaled that back a bit and am eating some nuts and seeds as well as a couple servings of light protein.
