Hi I am eating a moderate diet that consists with my exercise.
althy or losing weight (your goal will dictate the portion size of your food - however the same basic principles still apply):
Eat 6 small meals on schedule
Drink plenty of water
Make sure to eat clean (this can be defined as eating lots of veggies, lean protein and avoiding processed and fast food)
Strive to consume only complex carbohydrates and consume them early in the day.
Don’t go less than 2 hours and more than 3 hours without eating. It will keep your metabolism running high, and keep hunger at bay.
If you need a snack, make a good choice. Remember to fuel your bodies, don’t consume empty calories.
Increase the number of calories you take in to between 1500-1800 a day for women, and between 1800-2100 a day for men. This is taking in to consideration you are doing Warriorxfit at least 4 times per week.
There are no "fat-burning" foods. You might have heard that certain foods (e.g. celery and grapefruit) increase metabolism, but that is just a myth. While some foods and drinks such as red peppers and green tea have been studied for their potential metabolism-increasing properties, there is no conclusive evidence that whatever influence they have on metabolism is significant enough to result in weight loss.
One reason Warrior X-Fit recommends eating so frequently is to increase your metabolism. Metabolism in simplest terms is the rate which your body burns calories. Here are some factors that influence and determine your B.M.R. (basal metabolic rate - basically this is the number of calories you would burn if you were to lay in bed all day):
Age - your metabolism decreases five percent per decade after the age of 40
Gender - men generally burn more calories than women because they have more muscle tissue
Heredity - your heritage and genetic composition directly influences your B.M.R.
To make your B.M.R. more efficient, you must:
Eat small, frequent meals. Extending the time between meals makes your body go into "starvation mode," which decreases your metabolism as a means to conserve energy and prevent starvation. Skipping meals does not help you lose weight.
Drink water. As with food, depriving your body of water can encourage it to "hoard" rather than "burn". More than ninety percent of the chemical reactions in your body occur in water, so make sure you drink at least 3/4 gallon of water if you are a woman and a gallon if you are a man.
Boost metabolism with strength and cardiovascular training. Muscle burns more calories than fat does (73 more calories per kilogram per day, to be exact) so the more muscle you build, the higher your BMR.
Here are some additional things to remember regarding metabolism:
Some sugar substitutes may adversely affect metabolism and weight loss.
Always consult a dietician or doctor before making a major change in your diet and exercise routine.

So far I've lost ten pounds and have really toned up and the difference between this and high protein diets is that you can have complex carbs so you don't end up with a headache!
