Best diet?
 
Obviously the answer to this question will vary between individuals but I was wondering what everyone's experience with certain style of dieting was. Things like how much weight was lost, how hard was it, and how this influenced your strenght/endurance.

I stumbled upon the Warrior Diet last year. I found that it was a lifestyle diet. The Warrior Diet was great for weight loss, but not so good for holding muscle. So I changed it, added protein in the morning, and am still using it :)

I would NEVER be able to do a diet like that :eek:

I think it's the farmer/laborer in me. Work all day, feast then sleep at night.

Well, I do something sort of like that...my biggest meal is right before bed, but I still eat throughout the day. I can't sleep with a rumbling tummy.

I can't sleep like that either.

My diet now is about 50% calories before my big nightly meal. So it's not a strict Warrior Diet in any sense. It is basically no/low carbs during the day though.

Well I have all my carbs around my training, but I love my protein and fats at night...so I guess you could say I'm a bit hungry throughout the day, but then I have a huge salad and enough protein and fat to feel like I'm cheating :D


Contest dieting isn't as bad as people make it out to be ;)

That's how I always used to lose weight actually, starve myself all day (ad naseum) and then eat like 2 serving of dinner. And on friday/saturday binge. Of course my meal was always like lasagna or some **** so I came out of it more often than not looking like I had ancestral ties to a mythical stick people.

Yeah that's the bad thing about this approach - muscle loss. The creator of this diet (Ori Hoffensomethingorother) mentioned that if you are a bodybuilder you should be trying for more daily protein.

You have any carbs post-training?
