Full of pseudoscience and emotional writing. He makes it very appealing to a younger male audience by selling it as the way the spartans, and other warrior cultures ate, which is pure bs.

Do you really think spartans, roman legionaires and the like were concerned about meal timing and ate the highest quality food they could obtain at times that fit in with their special fasting schedule?

Like any army, they ate what was available, cheap, produced and distributed en mass amongst the troops. Which Full of pseudoscience and emotional writing. He makes it very appealing to a younger male audience by selling it as the way the spartans, and other warrior cultures ate, which is pure bs.

Like any army, they ate what was available, cheap, produced and distributed en mass amongst the troops. Which yes, probably included a lot of rice and wheat unfortunately. I don’t think they turned down lunch because ‘oh dear, I can’t break my fast until my 4 hour window starts, so maybe I’ll just wait for a few hours. Maybe ask me again after our 3 hour forced march?’ I’m sure they had tubs of Ori’s ‘Warrior Whey’, ‘Warrior chocolate’ and ‘Warrior EFAs’ in their packs too.

It’s as ridiculous as writing a book about how Genghis Khan and the horde lived on yoghurt and beef jerky which caused them to conquor the world from horseback. I can just see the Mongol Probiotic Conqueror Yoghurt being marketed now..

Don’t get me wrong, there are benefits to fasting for sure. But not in the way Ori presents it. Anybody I know that’s athletic and active has failed miserably on Ori’s diet(I worked at an MMA gym for 3 years in the past). The athletes I knew lost energy and gassed quickly when they trained or competed. The bodybuilder/weightlifter types lost hard earned muscle mass or strength. Try it for yourself and see. Really give it a serious shot for a month or two, and see if any of your athletic abilities or strength & conditioning improve, stay the same, or become worse.

Ori’s taken a beneficial practice (fasting) put his own twist on it, wraps it up in pseudo warrior-spartan-hua marketing myth, and then of course sells his own line of special warrior supplements. This type of blatant BS really gets to me. If you’re interested in fasting that works, without having to swallow a load of marketing – look into Brad Pilon’s Eat-stop-eat, or Leangains (which you can pretty much find for free online). …more
