    I have more or less for a few years now,I find I can concentrate better on it,haven't yet gotten sick while on it and my stamina is slightly better on it,it's also very convenient for me.

    The downsides for me being strength gains are slower and if I ever do a night shift it throws my routine a little bit.

    Anyone else follow it?
    Do you find it works well?
    Any major drawbacks for you?

    Xenophobia from misunderstood cultures much? They clearly eat the hearts of their enemies. The common misconception is the blood of their enemies. :p

    Also, i think he is refering to the book "the warrior diet" i forget its correct name, basically from the amazon proof read its about eating as you feel hungry throughout the day and only havign a meal after the work day is done. Subject to memeory as i have not properly read it recently. I assumed it was going to be about that books diet but then i got this. Hold on while i look for it

    Basically intermittent fasting,in it's simplest form 21 hours fasting/undereating with a 3 hour feasting/overeating window every day,the timing's quite important though,the feast period has to be before bed.

    Theres a few other things you can add in like carb load for a few days then fat load for a few days,apparently that mechanism gets stronger the more often you do it.
    I don't bother with that myself.

    The book's good even if you decide not to follow the diet,the author (Hoffmekler) has loads of very good interviews on youtube.

    I thought it was more popular than it appears to be here.

    The marketing alone makes me want to ignore it.

    The guy hadn't got relevant qualifications, and mercola promotes him, that's enough for me to not bother with it.

    A lot of what he theorises he can't prove,his ideas on 'stress activated nutrients' for example are logical but i haven't seen any hard evidence for it.

    But if a diet works,that's all the proof I need.
    And it works for me.

    Are you like me then and only gets health magazines for the recipes? XD I woudl take nutritional advice from a doctor rather thana qualified or unqulified nutritionist or Personal trainer. There are too many fads they follow when the simplist thing could be jsut to cut down on processed sugar or to eat less meat. ( i would at least get a second opinion from a GP anyway)

    Just as a general note, i was basing my viewpoint on a possibly unrelated book, i am looking into finding it now and i will also do a skim on the google page on the warrior diet i found.

    My edit time expired, forgive the double post, i was typing this in as it expired.

    [edit]: I was basing it ona pre read of the book which is relivent/this diet, and this is advertised on a martial arts wiki, heh. So i have skimmed the proof read for this diet on Amazon.

    It's definitely not a fad diet,in fact you could argue the opposite.

    He's researched the diets of soldiers from antiquity and looked for evidence of why they worked,apparently this was kicked off because he noticed he and the soldiers he served with performed better when they ate in a similar way.

    So if anything you could say it's outdated/nostalgia.

    I thought that was one of my best. Tough crowd :p

    It required access to "inner sanctum" knowledge!

    Or alternatively required people to care about the cult of whack jobs and con artists that make up scientology
