Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

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 during the day and filling up at night.

Grady Harp, December 24, 2007 (view all comments by Grady Harp)
Ori Hofmekler is fast becoming as highly regarded an expert on health through his advice on tending to the body and its fueling as he has been respected for his often controversial art: his name may not ring bells but a glance at his art will bring to mind moments of 'ah-ha!' we have noticed in the media and galleries. He is an original thinker and his current revised book, THE WARRIOR DIET, makes for not only fine reading but also as a guidebook to better health.

His source? History - just as it has been his source for imaging political statements on multiple matrices. With terse statements and research Hofmekler addresses the national 'malignancy' of obesity, the natural by-product of the sedentary computer focused society where exercise is gauged by the distance from the computer to the food machines and the microwave. With an at times seemingly unintentional wit (or sarcasm) Hofmekler looks backward to the time of the warriors, giving us evidence that the reason past men and women were in better shape to face the world had a lot to do with the way they consumed food.

Not to make this very informative book sound simplistic (there are certainly enough pages of theory on nutrition, exercise, mental adjustment, etc to keep the reader committed to Hofmekler's regimen), but the startling theory is the presentation of the eating pattern we have been told for years is incorrect. Hofmekler shows us how the correct way to make use of natural resources of energy and fortitude is to eat the right foods lightly during the day and save the main meal for the evening - the time when the Warrior in us needs to replenish particular energy patterns and storehouses and process not only the strains of the day on the mind and body, but to also physiologically mend the temple in which we dwell!

Not just another diet book, this, but instead an approach to reexamining life patterns is the main driver of Hofmekler's book. It is sound, readable, helpful, and a fine gift to each of us to make the next year healthier. Grady Harp
