Let’s be clear from the start – I have no idea how warriors eat/ate.
How’s that for keeping people engaged in this blog? “My title is stupid.”
Today I’m beginning the “warrior diet.” This is the crown jewel of intermittent fasting, where a person eats only one meal per day. So, I’ll be fasting from approximately 8:00pm to approximately 6:00pm the following day, totaling 22 hours. My meal times will vary a bit based on evening commitments, and I’ll likely snack a bit in that window as well (all keto snacks, of course).
The goal here is to keep my body in a fasting state for as much time as possible. I actually fasted all day yesterday, just consuming water, coffee, tea, and a little apple juice to help balance blood glucose levels. That will launch me into the warrior plan for this week. Then, after a good jump start on ketosis, I’ll head back to the regular intermittent fasting plan of skipping breakfast (fast for 16 hours, eat during an 8 hour window).
