Bodybuilding Diet Plans - Fast-5 Diet
There is also a diet floating around called the Fast-5, in which you fast on a daily basis for 19 hours. In this diet, you have a window of five hours per day in which to eat whatever you wish. The window can be at any time, but it is the only time that consumption of food is allowed.
Eat Stop Eat is also an IF-based diet, similar to the Warrior diet. The difference is that rather than fasting on a daily basis, you fast two days per week. With Eat Stop Eat, the science behind the diet is that by fasting for two days out of a week, you reduce your caloric intake by 10-20%, or 2400 to 4000 calories, resulting in weight loss of about a pound per week.
It's a pretty simple concept really. Pick two days a week to fast and eat sensibly the other five days. Some people swear it works wonders, while others say after about three weeks the body grows accustomed to being starved every couple days and weight loss becomes minimal.

The Warrior Diet is one of the newer diets based upon intermittent fasting, or IF. As in the Six-Meals-a-Day Diet, it also revolves around eating unprocessed, organic foods that are nutritious and wholesome.
During the day, you don't have to skip food entirely. You can snack on fruits, vegetables, and limited amounts of protein (nuts, plain yogurt, whey protein, etc). The idea is not to feel like you are starving, so if you experience hunger pangs, you can certainly have a snack.
Then in the evening, you reintroduce food by starting with uncooked organic vegetables (for the enzymes), followed by chicken or fish as your main dish, and then some fats or carbs if you still feel hungry. It is believed that you minimize the impact on your insulin response by doing this.
Calorie counting is not recommended, instead, when you consume your evening meal, you continue to eat until you are no longer hungry. Sticking to organic foods and using spices, herbs, and oils, you detoxify your system.
The other principal behind the Warrior Diet is that by combining exercise with under-eating, you will amplify the beneficial mechanisms of both - increasing our ability to utilize energy, improve strength and resist fatigue.
The Warrior Diet Is One Of The Newer
Diets Based Upon Intermittent Fasting.
Known by names such as The Body for Life Diet and The Eat Clean Diet, this diet is extremely popular with bodybuilders. So much so, in fact, that it has been nicknamed "Bro-Science" by its opponents (Bro-science meaning the way not-so-bright bodybuilders approach eating).
What it really is, is a change in eating habits, not just for a short term, but for the rest of your life, during which you eat six to eight small meals per day, limit sugars, processed foods and trans-fats, and instead consume lean protein, complex carbs, grains, legumes, nuts, veggies and fruit.

The diet made famous by Dr. Atkins in the eighties is also commonly called The Ketogenic, or Keto Diet. In this eating plan, emphasis is placed on a diet high in fat and protein with little to no carbohydrates being consumed. It is very common among bodybuilders when preparing for a competition and used as a cutting diet. It is also widely used as a method to help those with Epilepsy.
The thought process behind this type of diet is that by eliminating carbs, you will force your body into a state of ketosis, at which time ketones are used as a fuel source - rather than glucose.
Ketosis is basically defined as the build-up of ketones in your bloodstream wherein your body produces ketones for fuel. When this happens your blood ketone concentration is higher than your glucose concentration.
Ketosis drastically lowers insulin; which in turn causes your pancreas to start producing glucagon. After this happens while on a ketogenic diet, it is believed that your body will basically go into a dramatic fat burning mode.
