Warrior 20 Food List

In yesterday’s blog post I gave the formula for losing weight, getting strong and feeling great. You can view the original blog here:


My fellow trainer and friend Liz from LizTrainerLife.wordpress.com requested I share the food list.

The Warrior 20 are foods that help make your diet simpler by limiting you to some of the most nutritious foods. It should serve as no surprise that potato chips and soda did not make the list.

Protein: Whole Eggs, Lean Meats, Poultry & Game, Fatty Fish, Fermented Soy

Legumes: Beans and Lentils.

Fruits & Vegetables: Tomatoes, Spinach, Cruciferous vegetables(broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts), Avocados, Citrus (grapefruit, oranges), Berries.

Starches: Sweet Potatoes/yams, Quinoa, Amaranth.

Good Fats: Nuts (& nut butters), Seeds (Flax, hemp, chia), olive oil.

Liquids: Water, Green Tea.

These foods combined with a sensible training plan will help you build muscle, get and reduce your risks of dietary related illness.

      Hi Charlie, Personally I love Oatmeal. My favorite is a serving of Steel Cut (Slow Cook Style) with 60ish’ grams of Blueberries, Drizzle of honey and a Banana roughly an hour pre-workout if I’m going to be training a higher volume. It’s pretty easy on the stomach and a slow digesting/high fiber carb. As part of a breakfast I would pair the oatmeal with a protein to stay satisfied until lunch as fiber and protein have high satiety.
