Definitely keep us posted. Its been 2 weeks for me and I really enjoy it. Its an adjustment for sure but I have definitely leaned out from it.

sorry about not replying, i havnt started the diet yet , im re-reading the book it has to much info for me to take in at once. i worked out how much money i can aford to spend on my diet each weak im hopeing 30-40 pound will cover it.
I live 10 mins away from the butchers and the farm so getting fresh veg and meat is coverd. im dissapointed in myself to be honest i thought id have it sorted out by now. Anyway i have a noob question about veg, Could anyone tell me what green veg i can eat without cooking it? i have no clue what to eat apart from peas and lettuce. How is your progress going by the way, Thanks

Danny Ill break WD down to a quick version for you, dont eat meals for 16-20 hours (including the time you sleep) you can have coffee, nuts, fruit and vegetables and water during this undereating time. You can even have a salad or soup but be sensible. The idea is to undereat, and avoid carbs during the undereating phase. After the 16-20 hours eat, eat big and eat as much as you like until you are more thirsty than hungry.

If the idea of 16-20 hours is too daunting then cut the time down to 10 hours or 12 until you get used to it. Remember though you are supposed to feel hungry during the undereating time. Give it a go brother.

For raw green veg, spinach is good, I eat broccoli raw too, and cabbage.

Just got the book haven't started it yet.

Friend has started WD. She states she noticed after the hungry period she gets to a point where she loses her appetite at night and has to force herself to eat. I didnt have this experience but It makes sense to me, any one else encounter this?

I'm not doing the warrior diet but the leangains version but in concept they're both the same thing. But yes I've experience the same thing. Its weird, yet my performance hasn't suffered and I've been leaning out so everything is working out fine. I've realized that this is a diet VERY easy to maintain on all levels (the weight, hungry, one's sanity, etc.). As with everything there is a transition period and some getting used to but once your mind and body have adapted you'll be pleased with the new approach and with the results.

^^^Thanks. Its been over a month for me now and I like this way of eating. Ori Hof says your body will tell you what it needs and while thats a bit too new agey for me there is merit to it. I like the fact that I am not a slave to the plate and actually get excited about the big feeding window I have waiting for me.
