Unbalanced diets often cause nutrient deficiencies or excessive toxicity. When this happens, women often suffer from severe symptoms of hormonal fluctuations, such as weight gain, mood swings, bloating, water retention, headaches, nausea, and hot flashes. Converseiy, following a diet that detoxifies your body while nourishing it with all essential...

Advantages to Eating Living Foods

Living foods contain many vital live ingredients. They are the highest source of food enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and other phytonutrients in their most active state. They are critical for your health. When you ingest raw fruits and veggies, or freshly squeezed veggse and fruit juices, you reload your body with living enzymes. And every time you reload your body with living enzymes, you optimize your body to 1. Detoxify and create an antiaging effect. 2. Reduce inflammation, congestion, and...

Overeating Boosts Metabolism Your metabolism is as good as your last meal

One of the most important benefits of overeating on the Warrior Diet is that you boost your metabolism. Mainstream thought regarding metabolism is that you're as good as the calories you eat per day. Some theories say that if you want to lose weight, you just have to reduce your calories. Usually this works, up to a certain point. But after a week or two, the body's metabolism slows down, so you have to maintain this lower level of calories or continue reducing them to keep the weight off then...

Women Who Follow the Warrior Workout

Women are generally smaller than men they have different needs, and as a result different priorities. Some women may ask themselves, What do all these workout principles, based on macho-like moves such as slashing, stabbing, swinging, or punching, have to do with me The answer to this is that all the exercises outlined in this chapter are essential to create a truly functional body. You may choose to skip these aggressive moves, but why give up the chance to build a truly functional body The...

Fasting versus Starvation

There is a significant difference between fasting and starvation. Fasting is the art of manipulating the metabolic system it is controlled, and for a limited time. When you reach this peak time period, and then eat a large meal, your metabolism will be boosted higher than it was before. Converse , with starvation, the fasting is not controlled. Your metabolism will slow down and you will start to cannibaUze your muscles and lean tissues. Starvation slows the metabolism and, if done chronicaUy,...

The Romantic Instinct A New Definition for Romanticism

What does romantic mean What makes someone a romantic What is a romantic act Romantic instinct Romantic aspect Romantic period Since these words and phrases, although used for a long time, aren't always clearly defined, I think they need some clarification. I m aware that what I am about to say is debatable, so take it any way you want. You may agree with me, and you may not. It's my strong belief that romanticism is based on an instinct that's related to and comes from the same source as the...

The Stubborn Fat Syndrome

Stubborn fat is a major problem for many people today. Those who suffer from this Stubborn Fat Syndrome know that it's almost impossible to get rid of it. And they realize that even when they lose some body fat through diet and exercise, the fat they lose is not the stubborn fat. That's why it's called stubborn fat. This stubborn fat usually remains around the belly or chest area, making men look soft. On women, it usually hits their hips, butt, and thighs. I m not aware of any diet that...

Bow and Arrow Shoulder Stretch

This stretch routine mimics how ancient warriors used the bow and arrow. It works on the rear delts, back, traps, triceps, elbows, and tendons. Get yourself a training bungee cord, or, if inaccessible, you can use a towel. Fold the bungee cord. Hold the handles attached to the cord with one hand, and the edge of the folded cord with the other hand. Bring the cord up to shoulder-level. Stretch one hand to the side of your body at shoulder-height, as if you are holding a bow. The stretched hand...

The First Defense Against Radioactive Environmental Toxins

The first defense against environmental toxins, such as radiation, is saturating your body with minerals. Once cellular mineral saturation occurs, there's less possibility for the radioactive minerals to be absorbed into your body's organs. The best way to ensure mineral saturation is by following a daily detoxification routine, in which you ingest live fruits, as well as freshly prepared fruit and vegetable juices during the day. Besides supplying the body with live minerals, fruits and veggie...

Sprint Intervals 1020 minutes

There are different forms of aerobic intervals. In my opinion, the most practical is sprint intervals since you burn much more energy in a relatively short time than if you had completed a moderate aerobic routine instead. Those who want to accelerate the effect of controlled-fatigue training, without spending much time in the gym, should try sprint intervals. Moreover, it's a progressive method that eventually improves your endurance as well as your strength and speed. The best way to...

Destroying Sick Cells and Tumors

More and more research shows that fasting and detoxification helps attack and kill sick cells and tumors. Cancer cells thrive on sugar and acid environments. Daily fasting eliminates excess sugar from the cells, and the alkalizing effect of live fruits and veggies (and their juices) aids in rejuvenating healthy cells while helping to destroy sick cells. Enzyme loading accelerates the healing process. More on this is found in the next chapter under Enzyme Loading. Your immune system is naturally...

Craving Aphrodisiac Foods Instinctively

On a related matter, I truly believe we often instinctively crave foods that enhance sexuality. These aphrodisiac foods aren't always mysterious, esoteric, or exotic. Actually, you likely consume some very powerful aphrodisiac foods and herbs quite often. Meat, nuts, seeds, seafood, and wine are all considered to contain some sex-enhancing properties. Herbs and spices such as ginseng and gingko, cinnamon and vanilla beans, have been used for thousands of years as natural aids or remedies to...

The Warrior Diet as First Defense Against Prostate Related Problems

I believe the Warrior Diet may help prevent prostate cancer since the long, daily period of undereating (controlled fasting) helps the liver detoxify all these chemicals and estrogenic derivatives. Ingesting live (raw) fruits and vegetables on a daily basis, which are loaded with live nutrients, helps the liver detoxify for much of each day. If you don't tax the liver by consuming frequent meals, more energy is saved for digestion and elimination. Eating three to six meals a day may exhaust the...

Pygeum

The bark of the trunk is the part of the tree that is used for medicinal purposes. It is often mixed with palm oil or milk. It's interesting to note that certain substances in pygeum, such as n-docosanol (a triterpene), significantly reduces serum prolactin leveis. As noted, prolactin increases the uptake of testosterone and increases the conversion to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) inside the prostate gland. Clinical trials and numerous studies support the fact...

Diana Holtzbergs Experience with the r Warrior Diet

Out of nowhere, at the age of 30, I suddenly developed severe allergies. Mystified, I went to a traditional allergist and tested positive to almost everything. He prescribed three drugs and a few years of regular desensitization shots. But the drugs made me feel worse and I wasn't keen to have all those shots. There had to be a better way. I found a holistic internist who quickly laid the blame on a combination of my poor eating habits and history of antibiotic use. Frankly, I was shocked....

Sex Power and Instincts

Sex drive and potency were always regarded as indicators of health and power Since the dawn of civilization, men have competed with each other for the best mate in order to produce the best offspring and carry their genes into future generations. Being unable to perform sexually or impregnate a woman was considered a humiliating weakness. Like animal predators, human alpha males who were leaders of their pack (group) were proud to inseminate more women than the other males. The primal instinct...

Citrus Bioflavonoids and Soy Flavones

Citrus bioflavonoids contain some natural properties that may block estrogen. Citrus flavonoids are abundant in the white, spongy layer of citrus peels. Soy flavones contain mild estrogenic properties. It is believed that soy flavones bind to the estrogen receptors in the tissues, and thus block these receptors from estrodiol, the most potent estrogen hormone. Estradiol is called the bad estrogen because of its occasionally powerful effects on the body, such as bloating, water retention, fat...

Enzymes and Live Food Enzymes

Young people have a higher enzyme pool in their bodies than older people. The older we get, the less enzymes we have, so enzyme supplementation is often needed. Q When is the best time to take enzymes A I always suggest taking enzymes on an empty stomach or just before a meal because this gives them time to reload your system and reach your blood. As I've mentioned before, according to research studies, enzymes (such as protease enzymes) effectively reduce...

Warrior Aerobic Exercises

One can do aerobic exercises with different volume, intensity, and form. As noted, those outlined here are the basics. Aerobics should be done before resistance training. When you do so, your body will begin to adapt and you'll progressively be able to handle prolonged intense pressure more and more easily. Aerobics are an integral part of controlled-fatigue training. As discussed before, your body will instinctively use any resource of energy to generate strength. Granted, this routine isn't...

Lactoferin the Magic Bullet

Lactoferin is a major immune supportive protein in an infant's mother's milk that protects babies from bacterial infections. It's also the best iron scavenger. Lactoferin is abundant in good quality colostrums and whey protein, but it rarely appears in commercial dairy protein powders. This is too bad, because in addition to its iron scavenging abilities, lactoferin deposits iron in places where the body really needs it. Iron oxidation is a tremendous problem, not just because it can toxify the...

Brain Boosters

There are natural ways to boost brain neurotransmitters throughout the Undereating Phase. The empty-stomach factor can accelerate the deiivery of certain amino acids and nutrients to the brain. By crossing the brain barrier, these nutrients can boost mood, alleviate depression, and give you a feeling of well-being. Glutamine is a free-form amino acid that nourishes your brain as a daily fuel. The main fuel for the brain is glucose, but when glucose supply is short, the brain converts glutamine...

Goldenseal, besides being a potent immune booster, is believed to carry some...

Lndole3 Carbinol Milk Thistle Dandelion Root and SAMe

As I've mentioned before, one of the reasons for excessive estrogenic activity in the body is liver congestion. The liver works as a filter organ. It's supposed to break down or neutralize toxins, preventing them from reaching the blood. Excessive alcohol consumption, for instance, blocks the liver enzyme that breaks down estrogen. Therefore, toxic estrogen derivatives go directly into the bloodstream, creating negative estrogenic effects. That's one reason why many heavy drinkers and...

Fermented Foods

Fermented foods contain a variety of tastes, textures, and aromas. They enhance the composition of the meal and thus fall within the second rule of eating. The dominant taste of fermented food is sour. Textures and aromas vary according to the food. Naturally fermented foods are high in lactic-acid producing bacteria. This helps the digestive process and optimizes metabolism. Fermented foods that when naturally fermented are good sources of beneficial bacteria include Olives Yogurt preferably...

Few Words on Hunger and Thirst

Your body has more sensitivity, in general, to hunger than to thirst. There is a common presumption that there's a sort of defect in our sense of thirst, so we often don't drink as much as we need to. In my opinion, one of the reasons why some people lack thirst-sensitivity is because if we were thirsty all the time, we simply wouldn't eat as much as we need to. And for active people this could be fatal. Regardless, people who lack the ability to sense thirst are in constant danger of...

Saw Palmetto

Saw Palmetto is a small West Indian palm tree. It also grows in North America. The American Indians traditionally used Saw Palmetto berries as a tonic to support the body nutritionally, and was used by men as a fertility aid. Many herbalists consider it to be an aphrodisiac. This consideration may however be false. Saw Palmetto has proven to be an effective supplement to help treat those who suffer from benign prostatic hyperplasia BPH . Saw Palmetto inhibits the conversion of testosterone to...

Warrior Growth Serum

Warrior Growth Serum is a proprietary blend of low-temperature, air-dried, undenatured organic colostrum protein with other essential nutrients. Warrior Growth Serum is specially designed to accelerate growth and immunity. I generally recommend taking 5-20g of Warrior Growth Serum before your workout.

If you choose to chew the powder, the stickiness will dissolve in your mouth in a...
