The Warrior Diet - Intermittent Fasting

The Warrior diet was conceived by Ori Hofmekler, a former member of the Israeli Defense Force. This is one of the first fasting protocols, when nobody else was discussing intermittent fasting.

The idea came as a result of Hofmekler’s personal experience in the army. He observed that when he ate only at night, when he could rest, he had more energy, and he could focus better. After doing some research, he found out that this was the way of life of the ancient warriors, and he adopted the feeding schedule in his life after army.

The Every-Other-Day Diet - Keep the Weight Off

The “Every Other Day” diet, is as the name says it, a schedule where you fast one day, and you eat how much you want on the next day. The alternate-day diet protocol was conceived by Dr. Krista Varady, after getting a PhD on calorie restriction and fasting. She started the research on intermittent fasting, after observing that the drop off rate from regular diets was incredibly high. Her hunch was that with alternate day fasting the participants would stick longer with the program.
