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.

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!
