This review is from: The Warrior Diet: Switch on Your Biological Powerhouse for High Energy, Explosive Strength, and a Leaner, Harder Body (Paperback)
A few years ago I thought I would research intermittent fasting, and all paths appeared to lead to Hofmekler and this seminal work. I wasn’t disappointed when I got my hands on this and found the book to be very engaging. I stuck to the Warrior Diet for well over a year and have followed some form of IF ever since. My only advice for anyone contemplating this as a lifestyle is that it does require a bit more planning and consideration of factors such as calories and macros consumed than Hofmekler makes out. He preaches a very instinctive approach: eat what you want; let your body guide you, etc, and only mentions calorie intake once in the entire book. Personally, through trial and error, I found this naïve at best and potentially unhealthy at worst. It is easy to get into a binge and bust mode when on such diets unless you regulate these factors. All in all, excellent read.
