Ori Hofmekler

Author of The 7 Principles of Stress, nutrition and fitness expert.

Ori Hofmekler is the author of The Warrior Diet and the first to introduce the concept of intermittent fasting in practice. A native-born Israeli, he graduated the Bezalel Academy of Art and the Hebrew University where he earned a degree in Human Sciences. Hofmekler's formative military experience prompted a lifelong interest in survival science and the biology of stress, all of which inspired him to pioneer a new area of research known as stress-activated food (SAF). The SAF project was initiated in collaboration with a group of scientists and scholars to investigate the impact of nutrients in stressed food on the health and lifespan of the consuming organisms. Hofmekler has worked on new research projects that use data to further understand the dynamics of stress and improve life. In addition to The Warrior Diet (2002, 2007), he is the author of Maximum Muscle Minimum Fat (2003), The Anti-Estrogenic Diet (2006), and Unlock Your Muscle Gene (2011).
