My No. 1 Weight Loss Secret
*Intermittent Fasting (my preference: the warrior diet)
- The 16/8 Method: Fast for 16 hours each day.
- The 5:2 Diet: Fast for 2 days (eat only 500 cal on fast days) per week.
- The Warrior Diet: Fast during the day, eat a huge meal at night.
- The main reason that intermittent fasting works for weight loss is that it helps you eat fewer calories.
- Insulin: When we fast, insulin decreases and lower levels of insulin facilitate fat burning.

- Calorie rules: Try not to go over 1,050 calories in a day, go crazy on your cheat day. If you are forced to eat before 6pm(for warrior diet intermittent fasters), don’t go over 500 calories. That way, you can easily burn it off at the gym and still stay on track.
- Self-discipline rules: If you go over 1,000, go to the gym and burn it off.
- How to burn 500 calories at the gym (easily): Walk at a 20-30 pace on 13 incline (1 hour = over 500 calories burned)
