Maximum Muscle, Minimum Fat: The Secret Science Behind Physical Transformation Reviews
Ich habe das Buch "The Warrior Diet" innerhalb kürzester Zeit gelesen und war echt begeistert davon. Habe mir dann noch "Maximum Muscle, Minimum Fat" und muss sagen, dass mir dieses Buch nicht so gefallen hat. Der Inhalt war ähnlich, dort wurde nur nochmal ausführlicher erklärt, warum die Diät funktioniert. Einige interessante neue Sachen habe ich dort noch gefunden, aber wer sich für die verschiedenen Prozesse im Körper und die Makronährstoffe etc. interessiert, dem empfehle ich das deutschsprachige Buch "Das Handbuch zu ihrem Körper" von Chris Michalk.
Packed with loads of unpronounceable scientific term it can be difficult and off putting. I sometimes thought that I was being given a snow job. But if you've had trouble explaining, in concrete terms, why you're not eatinting that chocolate cake this can help you. I had to immediately read the "Warrior Diet" afterwards because the practical application is only hinted at in this book.
Very scientific book. not easy to read for normal persons with no scientific background.Only a few practical tips. rest of it is theoretical.
Sehr anspruchsvolle Lektüre. Musste einige Absätze 2,3,4 mal lesen um dem Autor folgen zu können. Dieses Buch ist definitiv nicht für jedermann ohne weiteres zugänglich. Man muss sich mit der Thematik wirklich auseinander setzen wollen um hieraus schlau zu werden. Und dennoch .. nach 100+ gelesenen Büchern zum Thema Fitness und Leistungsfähigkeit muss ich sagen, kein Autor, kein Buch, trift mehr ins Schwarze als Herr Hofmekler. Wer seine Erkenntnisse und Schlüsse in leicht verdaulicher Form sucht, findet sie in seinem Buch The Warrior Diet. Kann beide Bücher nur empfehlen. Schade nur dass viele seiner Ansätze nie den Mainstream erreichen werden.
Probably in response to criticism of his prior book, Hofmekler has gone overboard in this one describing the biological and physiological mechanisms involved in processing food, burning calories, and building muscle. Detail down to the cellular and mitochondrial level. And that's where he stops. While this may be interesting to some, it provides little value to those of us hoping to improve our diets and performance. He offers little in the way of actionable advice. Way too detailed on physiology, way too vague on what to do about it. He further confuses the issue by contradicting himself. For example, at one point he criticizes protein supplements, but later encourages the consumption of protein smoothies after a workout. You can't get 40 gm of protein in a smoothie from eggs and milk alone! (And have it taste good.) Anyway, there are much better books out there for the average dude (or dudette) trying to get more out of their work out.
A decent book on fitness and fat loss. My only gripe is that it covers much of the same territory as his Warrior Diet book. However, if you want to know why intermittent fasting is beneficial, both for fat loss and health, this is the book for you.
I'm a biology major and this book was very useful in helping me to get down to the hormone level of how nutrition works! I would not recommend for a not science person though, they wouldn't appreciate the full value of what he's explained. With this new knowledge from this book, I dropped 9 lbs of FAT in 9 weeks and put on 2 lbs of muscle!
Read the reviews and knew I was in for a lot of technical explanations. I find the theory interesting and it makes sense but where is some evidence of it put into action? I would have enjoyed some case studies with more specifics on how it can be applied to different folks. I've had success adding a decent amount of lean mass following principles Ori bashes in the text so I'm reluctant to jump on the wagon. It did help further convince me that intermittent fasting is a critical part of losing fat while preserving muscle. Would not recommend to a friend.
I was expecting something very simple. An easy how-to.Nope.What I got was an in-depth analysis into the world of hormones. I'm pretty sure everything Ori talks about in here is talked about in laymen in his book The Warrior Diet. But me being a huge nerd, I found this stuff. fascinating. Don't be fooled by its small size, it's a very tough read. I still haven't finished it yet, but I am learning a lot.
