Sometimes, someone proposes a diet that totally contradicts everything you think you know.
Testosterone Nation has an interview with Penthouse magazine’s editor Ori Hofmekler. His Warrior Diet is just that radical.
Read an Excerpt
This diet is based on the assumption that your body has the instinct, like any other instinct, to control itself and to manipulate it very well. The other big advantage of this diet is that it takes advantage of something that no other diet does?the empty stomach. Exciting things can happen when your brain barrier is open and you can manipulate your hormones.
We already know that working out on an empty stomach in the morning stimulates more weight loss than if we ate before. This diet basically guarantees you six to eight hours a day of fat-burning hormones running in your body.
Only in the ketogenic diet do we have a very similar affect, but the ketogenic diet has a lot of downsides to it. Again, it’s based on an unnatural denial of instincts. Mentally, it can f*ck you up completely, and it could really f*ck up your ability to deal with stress. I think the mental deprivation plays a big part in what I should talk about.
In essence, the “Warrior Diet” will guarantee you a fat-burning hormone in your system for at least six to eight hours, which no other diet does. And last thing, the diet is based on a one meal a day principle. It’s against all the rules. The meal is to be eaten at night. It could even be late at night; it doesn’t matter.
Ideally, it’s right after a workout. It sounds kind of bizarre?you could raise a lot of questions about resting metabolism and basal metabolism, and you could argue that most people won’t be able to handle it, and stuff like that.
Have you tried the Warior Diet? Did it shape you into one?
