Chronicles of a Struggling Dieter: How the Warrior Diet Changed My Life I would definitely consider myself to be ‘one of those girls’. I would literally try any diet that promised even the slightest of a weight loss! Ketogenic? No, thank you! The crash was awful. The military diet? Oh, no! Only if you can stomach the taste and texture of cottage cheese and hard-boiled eggs. Cabbage soup anyone? Let’s not get started on the terrible smelling gas associated with this diet. Carb cycling?

That’s what so spectacular about the warrior diet. You don’t have to do a thing! There’s no meal prepping for the week. You can throw that chicken breast and sweet potato you prepared 3 days ago in the trash. No, seriously! Don’t eat it! You don’t have to spend a shit load of money on expensive organic, gluten-free, tasteless foods. You don’t have to spend hours in the gym or more shit loads of money on Rob whose nickname is ‘the fat slayer’ who’s body is actually full of fat underneath the steroids and secretly wishes he had the discipline to try the warrior diet. There are no gimmicks! No protein shakes to purchase! No protein bars to buy! None of that! You’re simply left with your own will to succeed at the end of the day (pun intended). Do you get it? You succeed at the end of the day? That’s when you have your last meal. Yes, that was a lame joke, but please don’t judge the success of this diet on my ability to deliver a …show more content…

According to Emily Hodgkin, the warrior diet is not a sustainable way of eating in the long term and can be very difficult to stick to, especially if you live with people who are eating three meals a day. It is possible you may run into issues explaining to family you can only eat a handful of nuts for lunch while they’re scorching down a burger and fries, but it’ll be okay when they see your results. Anyways, you can always have yours for dinner when all your buddies stop eating at 6p and trying to convince themselves their peanut butter, butterscotch, chocolate turtle brownie with cookies n’ cream protein shake tastes anything more than chalk on

That is why we have a brain to think about what we are doing and if it is right or wrong. For example, the last time my mom called my grandmother was two days ago, and she found out that my grandmother ate something really oily and salty. My grandmother has high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and so many health problems that after she ate it she went to the hospital and now she cannot move half of her body.…

    Everyone has that one food they can’t say no to, or stop eating once they start. And that food is rarely carrots or cottage cheese. Or they have a habit that’s been derailing their healthy eating habits for years, like late night snacking or eating in the car. Don’t pick something because you think it’s what you should be doing. If sweets aren’t a problem for you, saying you won’t eat sugar for a month doesn’t make a big difference.…

    Tommy did not believe I was getting enough nutrition in my diet; He thought I would become weak and ill after a few weeks of the diet. He sure was surprised when months of the diet later I was healthier than ever. Tommy was even more surprised when I could easily workout at the gym for two hours without collapsing. He would say stuff like, "You must be eating meat sometimes" or "Soon you 'll be tired and exhausted all the time from this diet" but I have not had meat in a year and I am still full of energy with no meat. The way my family argues with me about eating meat you would think we were arguing over politics or religion.…
