The Warrior Diet is probably quite different from any other diet you’ve experienced. This meal plan can be used for losing fat as well as gaining muscle, and does not entail counting calories or using highly restrictive lists of food. In addition, the Warrior Diet doesn’t require small, frequent meals—it actually discourages that practice. The Warrior Diet suggests engaging in an “undereating phase” for most of the day, followed by an “overeating phase” during the evening. According to the official website for the Warrior Diet, such a schedule encourages an optimal hormonal environment and improves energy production and fat burning.
Improved Protein Absorption
When you’re dieting, protein intake is often emphasized, as carbohydrate and fat intake are often discouraged. However, many protein sources, such as meat, can be expensive, and the Mayo Clinic suggests that high protein diets may cause liver and kidney problems or worsen existing issues. Ori Hofmekler, founder of the Warrior Diet, explains that the protein absorption rate dramatically increases on this nutrition plan. This means that you can consume less protein and still maintain or increase lean mass. However, Hofmekler does state that some protein is necessary for maintaining good health.

Traditionally, yoga has been a solo practice. It’s a time of self-reflection and introspection. But it doesn’t always have to be. You can learn just as much about yourself and your body while practicing with a partner. Plus, partner yoga (often referred to as AcroYoga because it combines acrobatics and yoga) has the added benefit of building trust between you and your partner. And then there’s the additional core strength needed for the person in the air (the flyer) and the lower-body strength required of the person supporting the flyer (the base). So grab a partner and get inspired by the following 11 yoga poses built for two.
