Lose Body Fat With Only One Meal Per Day?

You may or may not have heard of the Warriot Diet, created by Ori Hofmekler. The Warrior Diet is the only diet that explores the advantages of overeating. Have you ever felt guilty for overeating? You may feel guilty because you didn’t know that a deep, primal instinct drove you to overeat. Many people binge late at night when exhausted from a rigid, obsessive, daily self-control. An instinct that we have most likely inherited from our late Paleolithic ancestors who were night eaters, cycling between periods of famine and feast (undereating and overeating). That’s usually the time when inhibitions are broken down and the alleged “demons” come out. But these are not demons. If you know how to use this instinct in the right way, it can work for you instead of against you.

So What Is The Warrior Diet?
The Warrior Diet is based on a daily feeding cycle of “undereating” during the day and “overeating” at night. The “Undereating Phase” during the day maximizes the Sympathetic Nervous System’s (SNS) fight or flight reaction to stress, thereby promoting alertness, generation of energy, fat burning and the capacity to endure stress.

Why Eat One Main Meal at Night?
As a species we are nocturnal eaters, inherently programmed for night eating. Unfortunately, we consume most of our food during the day, starting with a big breakfast, and we pay the consequences with ever growing epidemics of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders and other modern man diseases. The solution: skip big breakfast and lunch, eat your main meal at night, and you’ll notice how you’re leaning down and strengthening without even changing your calorie intake. Overeating helps you relax at night while putting your body in an anabolic (muscle building) state.

One Meal Per Day Can’t Be Healthy – Doesn’t Eating At Night Make You Fat?
In Ori’s words, “The “Overeating Phase” at night maximizes the Parasympathetic Nervous System’s (PNS) recuperation effect on the body, thereby promoting calming down, relaxation, digestion and the utilization of nutrients for repair and growth. This feeding cycle stimulates the production of cellular factors such as Cyclic AMP or GMP, which stimulate hormone synthesis and fat burning during the day, as well as protein synthesis and growth during the night, respectively.”

Burn Fat & Feel More Energetic During the Day & Build or Maintain Muscle and Relax at Night!
The Warrior Diet sounds pretty much ideal, no fretting over what to eat during the day or how much, just simply fast during the day and have dinner at night!

Guidelines of the Warrior Diet
1) Under-eat During The Day
2) Eat Your Main Meal at Night
3) Do Not Eat Carbs Alone
4) Exercise Regularly During the Under-eating Phase
5) During the Day You Can Eat Small Amounts of Fruits and Vegetables, Soups, or a Light Protein Source
6) When Overeating, Stop Eating When You Feel Much More Thirsty Than Hungry

My Take On The Warrior Diet
The Warrior Diet definitely “works”, I sometimes eat only one meal per day (with some fruit during the day) and I feel energized, sleep surprisingly better and feel super powerful in my workouts. I think anyone who is skeptical of this diet should simply just try it for themselves and see how they like it. It certainly will not work for everyone, some people may like the concept of eating more during the day, and for others it will work magnificently. I say, try it!
