An H&B Diet Review:
by Chet Day
produces better goose bumps for me in the literature of natural health than when
I discover a new program that runs utterly against the grain of conventional wisdom.
enjoyed those goose bumps for the first time way back in 1993 when I discovered
Natural Hygiene, and I felt similar horripilations recently when I read Ori Hofmekler's
fascinating and controversial The Warrior Diet.
The Warrior Diet, Hofmekler, a lean and fit artist-athlete, rejects conventional
diets as well as the "six mini-meals" a day approach used by most weightlifters.
Instead of these traditional approaches, Hofmekler says you attain excellent health
by limiting your main eating to the evening - though he does allow some whole
food snacks during the day if you feel super hungry.
that gets you tettering a bit on the balance beam, doesn't it?
addition to being intrigued by his approach to eating, I also found Hofmekler's
long section on fitness and exercise helpful and fascinating. As a brief taste,
consider his Warrior Workout Principles:
strength-training priorities: joints and back
between intense resistance and high velocity (explosive moves)
under "controlled fatigue"
not train to reach complete muscle failure
your workout short
if you're into resistance training, you can see Hofmekler's advice is unconventional,
to say the least.
is a "must read" book for the unconventional health enthusiast who's
fascinated by diet and work-out approaches that flip the bird, so to speak, at
traditional diet and fitness wisdom.
in a lively and readable style, with plenty of interesting facts about lean and
mean warrior machines throughout history, The Warrior Diet beats the tar
out of 95% of the boring nutrition and work-out books published today.
not for everyone, but if you're an unconventional health thinker, you'll enjoy
the assumption-challenging ideas in The Warrior Diet.
