Science Cafe: The Science of Stress

Ori Hofmekler discusses the science of stress and how to put hormesis into powerful practice. Hofmekler’s latest book, The 7 Principles of Stress: Extend Life, Stay Fit, and Ward Off Fat is a call to action--a manifesto of living life to its utmost evolutionary potential, under stress, as nature intended.

Supported by cutting-edge research, Hofmekler redefines the term "nutrition" as it reveals the stress-mimicking nutrients that yield the same benefits of fasting and exercising. At the book’s core is the biology of stress and the way it affects all key aspects of life from feeding and sexual behavior to mental and physical performance.
Ori Hofmekler is the author of The Warrior Diet and the first to introduce the concept of intermittent fasting in practice. Hofmekler presents his approach in workshops targeting groups from special agents, air marshals, and SWAT to university professors, students, and fitness advocates.

A native born Israeli, he graduated the Bazalel Academy of Art and the Hebrew university where he earned a degree in Human Sciences. Hofmekler'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). 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 life-span of the consuming organisms.

Tickets: $10 Discounted $5 tickets available for current LLLCF donors.
