I am fat / WD
I am trying to determine if the warrior diet is for me.

I am probably 30 to 35% body fat.

I have made some nice gains in the last six months and would like to not lose too much muscle (however weight loss is important right now)

I know from my past that eating light through the day is possible for me.

I am curious about modifications and supplements that would help with this diet.

And i guess any of your experiences would be of help too.

I have run it 2 ways:

Method 1

Only a few strawberries and a piece of string cheese during the underfeeding. I lost 48 pounds in 2 months, but 7 of it was muscle. I measured bodyfat composition using a caliper.

Method 2

Whey in water during the underfeeding, with BCAAs every couple of hours. About 400-500 calories of whey during the underfeeding. I lost zero muscle this way.

I have run the above for at least the last 2 years. I am a big night eater and it has served me very well.

Method 2 I think. Today I was talked into a product call lean pro matrix after I explained what I had planed. I was told that it would stay in my system longer. Got the BCAA'S also.

So that's it, consume these to at the rate of 4- 500 cal a day, and pig out at night according to the book.

Will I be able to gain any muscle while doing this(crosses fingers)?

Any other suggestions?

I have little experience with building muscle while cutting fat, but I definitely know you can build muscle on this otherwise.

Don't quit. The first 3 days you might feel different, but after that you should feel much better during the day.

Train hard and fight for progression of weight. This will maximize the possibility of muscle gains while dropping the weight.
