Publisher's Summary

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; and personalizing the diet for women.
Featuring forewords by Fit for Life author Harvey Diamond and Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill author Dr. Udo Erasmus, The Warrior Diet shows listeners who are weary of fad diets how to attain enduring vigor, explosive strength, a better appearance, and increased vitality and health.

This book will change your life.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, without hesitation. I have been practicing the Warrior Diet for over a year now and it delivers on everything Ori Hofmekler promises it will.

What other book might you compare The Warrior Diet to and why?

The Anti-Estrogen Diet. It is also by Ori Hofmekler and is a good supplementary and complementary read to The Warrior Diet.

What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

His voice is clear and distinct.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It helped to free me from the bonds of the scavenger lifestyle most of us have been directed towards for the better part of our lives. It made me feel liberated.

Any additional comments?

Buy this book and make an effort to stick to its regimen, it will change your life.

A life changer

My appreciation for food has revolutionized. For the animal, for the farmer, for the preparation and cooking. I mostly liked the nutrition and hormone function portions of the book. The history lessons were interesting, and I suppose necessary since you base your diet off of these ancient warriors.

The workout portion I could have done without but I can see how it would help a sedentary.

It has changed my life in less than a week. I had a work meeting two days ago in which I did the majority of the speaking while everyone else ... well.. stuffed their faces with taco rice. Ironic in so many ways!

Good info

Would you listen to The Warrior Diet again? Why?

Yes has a lot of useful information, notes would need to be made

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, so much info is thrown at you best to break it up. Ignore the history section if you just want the cold hard facts what people did in the past has no bearing on the science and scheduling which is what is of interest in this book.

Any additional comments?

This is a good book if you are not new to nutrition and wish to do further reading into dieting. as newbies will be overwhelmed by what is thrown at you, and your more likely say it is INCORRECT as it questions dieting standards which a lot of people will not be able to handle with out further reading or understanding how nutrition is handled by the body. I have tried many diets to hone my strength and conditioning. High protein, High carbs all with success but I just felt it was still unhealthy internally. as all required severe excess and deficit, which will take its toll hormonally. Have been looking into Intermittent fasting for a while and would like to put my body through it to see my reaction. Going to put it through a strength cycle then a conditioning one this year and see my results.

The concept of this diet is well rounded and has been the missing link for me and filled in a lot of gaps in my own knowledge. I can finally link Intermittent fasting with raw food and Palaeolithic eating. Will be interesting.....
