Warrior vs. Zone

I've read both books, and done both diets
so... what's better?
Warrior diet vs. Zone?

...more importantly, why not the other?

Marco, you've done both, tell us pro's and con's, and after doing both, can't you decide what worked best for you??

Re: Warrior vs. Zone

For me, married, father of kids, zone is the only way to go. Meal times are special in my family (as I am sure many of yours, too). Zone allows me to eat what the whole family is eating and still stick to the diet. My family eats like most...meat, starch, vegtebles...I just balance it out to 30/40/30. I weighed all foods we ate for week, and read labels. I have seen both fat loss and increased performance doing this.

Re: Warrior vs. Zone

Not sure these are competing diets... Why not both together?

Don't think one is better than the other, just different. I'd say that whichever works best for you fits the bill of which is better.

Re: Warrior vs. Zone

I've got to say, do the Zone. Many, many, people thrive on CF + Zone. Don't really know anyone who has successfully done CF + Warrior diet (which is different than IF). Start with the Zone, then go Zone with paleo foods, then experiment with Zone/paleo/IF. There is a reason Coach recommends the Zone.

Re: Warrior vs. Zone

You've got to start with zone. Play with the balance and see how your body responds to different ratios. Everyone is a bit different.

"Don't really know anyone who has successfully done CF + Warrior diet (which is different than IF)."

Just to be clear, is the difference between the warrior diet and IF that you're pointing to that the warrior diet does not vary the time and length of the fasts?

Re: Warrior vs. Zone

Roy,
I think Warrior Diet advocates undereating during the day (grazing in very small amounts) with on big eating at night if I remember right. IF advocates long (12-24+ hours) of no eating whatsoever. Then, you make your calories up in a compressed eating window (2-24 hours depending if you're going more fast-5, Alternate Day Fasting or some variation).

I believe that Jeff Martone is a Warrior Diet nutrition advocate. He's also a CF Level II trainer if I'm not mistaken. Aside from being RKC Certified etc. etc.

It can work so long as you're still eating clean and figure out what time your workouts yield the best results.
