The Warrior Diet
The Warrior Diet is based on a daily feeding cycle of "undereating" during the day and "overeating" at night. The "Undereating Phase" during the day maximizes the Sympathetic Nervous System's (SNS) fight or flight reaction to stress, thereby promoting alertness, generation of energy, fat burning and the capacity to endure stress.
The "Overeating Phase" at night maximizes the Parasympathetic Nervous System's (PNS) recuperation effect on the body, thereby promoting calming down, relaxation, digestion and the utilization of nutrients for repair and growth. This feeding cycle stimulates the production of cellular factors such as Cyclic AMP or GMP, which stimulate hormone synthesis and fat burning during the day, as well as protein synthesis and growth during the night, respectively.
Most people in America can't keep a diet. We are the most successful nation on earth. It puzzles me how millions of intelligent people who manage with great skill their professional careers can't manage their own diet. The statistics are staggering. Diet related blood sugar problems including diabetes, impotency, infertility, high blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases are at an all time high. Notwithstanding all the data on nutritional science and health, most diets fail.
Ori Hofmekler - Why You Should Not Eat Breakfast
Men and women suffer from Stubborn Fat related problems (the fat that is almost impossible to remove). Moreover, diet related mental issues such as eating disorders, food phobias, guilt and feelings of failure lead people into depression and despair. Women are of special concern. Social pressures and unrealistic models for self-image and obsessions with body weight lead many women to follow any fad diet that promises a quick fix. Human common sense, logic and instincts that are necessary for all other life activities all but disappear when it comes to diets.
Common knowledge says that diets fail because of a lack of self-esteem on behalf of those who try dieting. The truth is far from that, as I will soon argue. Diets fail because they're wrong. Mainstream diet gurus tell you to eat many small meals during the day. They tell you not to overeat, under eat or to skip a meal. They tell you to avoid meats, dairy, bread, caffeine and chocolate. I'm here to tell you that it doesn't have to be that way.
