You’re also jealous. You’re not bitter, but you want your own results.
You’re ready for your own case study. You want to make your results happen. You’re ready to use intermittent fasting to lose weight.
Here’s the exact system for how to lose weight with intermittent fasting…
Here’s how you can create a transformation with intermittent fasting and feel confident with your new body…
Step 1: Take a “before” picture today so that we can track your progress with intermittent fasting plans…
Have one last epic cheat day so that you look like hell (just an optional idea, not mandatory).
You want your after photo to look like a miracle. Try not to feel too guilty about your before photo. You should be proud of yourself for being accountable and taking action. Don’t beat yourself up for past mistakes. It is what it is.
Here are some intermittent fasting before and after photos from our students from around the world…
Here’s another one…
And another one…
And another one…
Your before doesn’t have to be good or bad. Change is personal.
We all have different goals.
- You may want to lean down.
- You may have to burn off that quarantine weight.
- You may want to simplify your fitness life.
- You may want to indulge in dinner with your friends without feeling guilty about it.
Step 2: Commit to your fitness with a plan that you can actually follow.
It’s time to find a plan that you can follow. I would much rather you follow an imperfect plan than not follow the perfect plan.
No, you don’t have to read awkward posts about goal setting. Just promise yourself that you’ll try to train and eat better (within a tight eating window).
How do you do this?
- Hit the weights 3-4X a week. You don’t have to become a competitive lifter. You just have to focus on getting stronger with the basic lifts.
- Make a challenge. You have to commit to this journey. Tell a few friends, make a post on social media, or make a bet with a friend. Do something to commit to this journey.
- Start today and worry about the minor details later. I find that people love to debate strategies and theories as an excuse for not taking any action. Start today and change as you go.
Step 3: Set an eating window.
I promise you that any form of intermittent fasting will help you kickstart that weight loss. You can start by skipping breakfast and just doing lunch and dinner.
How do you set an intermittent fasting eating window?
Your intermittent fasting plan will depend on your schedule. When do you work? When do you train? When do you party? When do you like to eat? I’m a huge fan of a decent dinner.
An 8-hour eating window is the easiest way to start. You can cut down to 6 or 4 hours eventually. You can add in one 24 hour fast per week.
What are the different styles of intermittent fasting?
- 16/8 Lean Gains Approach.
- Alternate Day Fasting.
- One meal a day.
- Warrior Diet.
Step 4: Get in more protein.
We all suck at eating healthy. None of us are ever going to be perfect at clean eating (whatever that means).
Try to at least get more protein in so that your muscles recover and you feel better.
You can start with protein bars (watch the sugar content) and then get into salmon, steak, chicken, tuna, and whatever else your budget allows for. I use the Protein First rule to get my protein in every single day.
Step 5: Train and play to enjoy the ride.
Get into the habit of lifting weights and adding some play to your life. You want to play so that you’re not always so anxious. You want to live an active lifestyle so that you don’t have to dread going on a treadmill or feel that you have to torture yourself to get a sweat on.
What are examples of play that you can add to your life?
- Go for lots of walks. Put on a podcast or look up hikes near you to get some movement.
- Join a sports team. Can you play any sports? Competition is the best cardio for you and you end up making new friends in the process.
- Try mixed martial arts. I swear by grappling and kickboxing. You’re forced to be active and you learn some skills in the process.
- Try new challenges. Have you ever done an obstacle course? What about a new activity? Can you walk a slack line?
Don’t worry about intense cardio workouts that you see on social media. Get out there and have some fun. You won’t even notice that you’re the calories off and dropping the fat in the process.
“Play is the highest form of research.” — Albert Einstein
Step 6: Try to have as many “good” days in a row as possible.
You don’t have to be perfect but it’s fun to see how many good days in a row you can pull off.
You see, many of us think that we’re doing everything right, but we either don’t track our mistakes or we kid ourselves about what’s really happening.
The goal is to try to give yourself an “X” for every good day that you get. I use a visual calendar. Every day that I feel good or that I took care of everything, I give myself an X.
I try to have as many good days in a row as possible to build momentum. After 6 good days in a row, you’re not going to want to stop. You’re going to want to keep on going.
Step 7: Wait for the 90s days to end.
“When can I see results?” — Every single person on day 3 of a new diet.
I know, I know. You want to be hot already. You don’t want to wait. I feel you. I’m as a impatient as they come.
Consistency is everything and you already know this so I won’t lecture you.
You may see results in the first week. You may not. It’s tough to tell. Everyone reacts differently. Some of us won’t see physical results for a week. Some people see instant results. Some folks will even feel instant results. Some people won’t have any results for at least a few months.
I want you to wait 3 month/90 days to truly try to transform your body. You may not notice drastic changes on a daily basis, but when you look back, you’ll be pretty proud with how far you’ve come.
Which intermittent fasting plan makes it easiest to lose weight?
The traditional 16/8 intermittent fasting is the easiest plan to follow and to get started with. You’re essentially just delaying your first meal and not snacking before bed.
If you can’t do this, then try to throw in a 24 hour fast once per week.
The goal is to have a tight eating window so that you limit your calories and decrease your chances of screwing up.
We focus on progress over perfection.
Do you have to follow these steps religiously to lose weight intermittent fasting?
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” — Leonardo da Vinci
The beauty of fasting is that you do nothing. You reset by doing nothing. You get results by doing nothing. It’s true simplicity.
This isn’t some cult. You don’t have to follow everything step-by-step. You just have to start and focus on improving every single day.
What happens when you mess up?
You move on. The beauty of focusing on when you eat instead of what you eat is that you can get back on track by doing nothing. Fast longer the next day.
That’s all you need to start your transformation. Before you know it, the three months (or however long it takes to be satisfied) will fly by and you’ll be a different person so take lots of pictures and enjoy the ride.
Treat yourself to the gift of a lean physique. You won’t regret it when everyone around you starts noticing your confidence.
