The Warrior Diet Book Review | by Ori Hofmekler

Le Hunt's picture

Author Ori Hofmekler blames the current epidemic of obesity on today’s eating habits and lifestyle. Looking back to the warrior and hunter-gathered cultures, he has designed "The Warrior Diet" to help anyone get back into shape. The ancient world produced few fat people, and it was because of when and what they ate.

"The Warrior Diet" is not simply a book that will tell you what or what not to eat, and in what portions, it is written to help you understand how your body functions and how to get optimal benefits of weight loss and health. Although the title may suggest otherwise, "The Warrior Diet" will work well for women, too.

What Is "The Warrior Diet" All About?

"The Warrior Diet" is based on the idea of ‘cycling’ – which is how the author believes was followed in warrior cultures of the past. This involves actually eating very little during the day, when the men would be out hunting, then having a large meal in the evening, when returning with the day’s catch.

This way of living was basically what was practiced for thousands and thousands of years, it was only when people became more sedentary that the problem of obesity arose. Ori introduces you to the Warrior Diet Nutritional Program which will help you eat foods in combinations that will help with weight loss.

Also in the book is the Warrior Training Program which will get you into shape, gain strength, and lose even more of those unwanted pounds.

What Are Others Saying – Does "The Warrior Diet" Really Deliver?

In the video below you can watch a user of "The Warrior Diet" giving her own testimonial of this particular diet. This user is describing the positive effects that this diet had not only on her body and mind but on her lifestyle as well. She has managed to terminate her food obsessions, to change her wrong perceptions on food and to increase her will-power.

Daniel G. Elliot has been extremely pleased with the results he has gotten by following the program in "The Warrior Diet". Daniel bought the book, “Read it and put into practice in April 2010. By July, I lost 40lbs and looked leaner, more fit than I ever have in my life.” Even half a year later, he is still using this book and feels and looks wonderful.

Gaining weight all too often goes along with getting a bit older, but JackMetal “mjack” has found that “Pounds have just been falling off at a fast pace.” Not only does this reviewer look and feel better, but Jack says, “I feel I am reclaiming the animal magnetism of my younger days.” The combination of healthy eating and exercise had really made a difference in his life.

Jumping from diet to diet in a vain attempt to lose weight was frustrating to snowdrop, especially since he has hypoglycemia. Applying "The Warrior Diet" to his life, this user reports that, “as long as I've stuck to his guidelines, blood sugar hasn't been an issue for me at all. I've lost weight and have (a lot) more energy.” This is evidently a diet and exercise plan that will deliver results.

A woman who tried the diet program developed trouble with her adrenal glands, and had to modify her approach to the plan.
