Have you ever heard of the warrior diet? It is a form of intermittent fasting that is gaining a lot of momentum for its promises of weight loss and better bodily functions. But is the hype real or not? I sat out to find out for myself and did the diet for 30 days straight without deviation (or just a little bit, as you will read further below).
But if you don’t know the warrior diet, fear not, as it is possible to explain in just a few lines. The warrior diet was created by Ori Hofmekler, a former member of the Israeli Special Forces. In 2001, he published a book titled The Warrior Diet – Switch On Your Biological Powerhouse – For Explosive Strength, High Energy and a Leaner, Harder Body.
In short, the warrior diet is a type of intermittent fasting that goes beyond the traditional 16:8 (16 hours of fasting and 8 hours of an eating window). The warrior diet is basically a 20:4 intermittent fasting in which you fast for 20 hours and can eat during a 4-hour period every day.
