Along with the many benefits of leisure-class living comes obesity and its attendant ailments. In The Warrior Diet, Ori Hofmekler looks not forward but backward for a solution–to the primal habits of early cultures such as nomads and hunter-gatherers, the Greeks, and the Romans. Based on survival science, this book proposes not ordinary dietary changes but rather a radical yet surprisingly simple lifestyle overhaul.
Drawing on both scientific studies and historical data, Hofmekler argues that robust health and a lean, strong body can best be achieved by mimicking the classical warrior mode of cycling—working and eating sparingly (undereating) during the day and filling up at night. Specific elements from the Warrior Diet Nutritional Program (finding ideal fuel foods and food combinations to reduce body fat) to the Controlled Fatigue Training Program (promoting strength, speed, and resilience to fatigue through special drills), literally reshape body and mind. Individual chapters cover warrior meals and recipes; sex drive, potency, and animal magnetism; as well as personalizing the diet for women. Featuring forewords by Fit for Life author Harvey Diamond and Fat That Kills author Dr. Udo Erasmus, The Warrior Diet shows readers weary of fad diets how to attain enduring vigor, explosive strength, a better appearance, and increased vitality and health.
3 Stars with limitations
I have been on this diet, slightly modified for two weeks now. I did read the book in its entirety, and even made notes here and there for key points. I have lost 5 pounds, and at one point had more energy. The problem is, this diet cannot possibly work for someone with a high stress, low physical activity career. I can totally see me benefiting three fold if I worked construction or stayed at my old job (I cant realistically get to the gym everyday) This book also seems like a gateway to more of Ori’s products. A little like the “naked warrior” book by Pavel. Good read, fun ideas, and helpful like the south beach diet.
4 Stars it just works!
It ain’t easy, but it works. 100%. But, if I wanted easy, i’d stay flabby. For an inspirational book to help with this and everything in your life, check out Live Like A Fruit Fly – also on amazon.
5 Stars Best Book I’ve ever Read about Dieting
The Warrior Diet goes way beyond the rationale of thinking when it comes to weightloss. To be honest, this program will challenge you in ways you never even thought of. There’s no hype or fluff, just straight to the point knowledge you can use right away. If your serious about losing weight @ a rapid rate,( Now by all means don’t let that last sentence scare you.) It is possible to drop 10 -15 lbs per week on this program and keep it off, so I strongly advise you to get this book, one month on the program, and if done right a lot of family and frieds wont even reconise you!!
5 Stars You will lose weight
Restrict your caloric intake and you’ll lose weight, at least until your metabolism adjusts. Because this diet is probably more restrictive than most others that are popular with men, such as All Pro, Abs, and Belly Off, it can help you lose that last ten to fifteen pounds, if you’ve stopped losing weight with the diet you’re currently following and want to see if you can get your body fat into the high single digits. To stick with it takes a level of commitment and resolve that most people don’t really have, but your motivation to continue may increase as you see progress and learn to tolerate the changes that accompany selective fasting. I recommend it for eight to twelve weeks as an interesting change of pace, but I don’t recommend it as a permanent lifestyle change.
5 Stars Buying multiple copies as gifts
I started on the Warrior Diet 6 months ago, and it has changed my life. I’ve lost 26 pounds, added about 10 pounds of muscle, feel great and look great. I’m over half way to my long-term goal. The best part is I’m never hungry and I don’t feel deprived. I’ve never been able to stick to a diet due to hunger & feeling deprived. Another reason I’ve failed at previous diets is I have not seen rapid & persistent progress. My progress on The Warrior Diet has been both rapid and persistent.
Note that The Warrior Diet is more than a “Diet”. It really is a lifestyle. Many folks may not be ready to modify their lifestyle. But if you are ready for a new, healthier, happier lifestyle, “The Warrior Diet” is what you’ve been looking for!…Chris.
