Ori Hofmekler is the author of The Warrior Diet and the first to introduce the concept of intermittent fasting in practice. aA native born Israeli, he graduated the Bazalel Academy of Art and the Hebrew university where he earned a degree in Human Sciences. aHofmekler's formative military experience prompted a life interested 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). aThe 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 life-span of the consuming organisms. Hofmekler has been since working on new research projects which he believes can help utilize this data to further understand the dynamics of stress and improve life. Hofmekler's previous books include The Warrior Diet (2002, 2007), Maximum Muscle Minimum Fat (2003), The Anti-Estrogenic Diet (2006), and Unlock Your Muscle Gene (2011).
"Through cutting-edge science and the latest research, The 7 Principles of Stress provides easy-to-implement strategies that 'turn on' the genes responsible for faster fat loss, better sex, and disease prevention. Hofmekler is, once again, decades ahead of the curve with this tactical guide for turning back your biological clock and feeling years younger."
--Anthony DiClementi, author of The Biohacker's Guide to Upgraded Energy and Focus
"If you consider nutrition and training a necessary part of your survival, then you owe it to yourself to allow Hofmekler the opportunity to challenge the accepted premises that make up so much of our conventional fitness paradigm. This book is not to be missed."
--Mark Semos, former U.S. Navy SEAL
"Ori Hofmekler is a master of modulating and modifying stress."
--Marty Gallagher, national and world champion powerlifting coach and former columnist for the Washington Post
