My approach to intermittent fasting:

How we have been suckered to think about eating ‘three square meals a day’

My Epic Dinner (One Insanely Huge Meal a Day)

We humans are very naive. For example, many of us tend to think the human body is equivalent to a gasoline engine. The theory:

In order to drive your car, you must first put fuel into it.

We make the same theory to humans:

Once you wake up, you MUST have a ‘breakfast’ in order to “fuel” yourself for the rest of the day.

But if we think critically and rigorously… is this true?

I say no. This is why:

How does human biology work?

Let us think simply. If I fast you for a week (but still fed you water), would you die? No. You would certainly be very hungry, but you wouldn’t die. Why? Your body will enter a state of ‘ketosis‘ in which your body draws upon your fat stores in order to keep your body’s metabolism going.

Eating Pork Ribs

What are the advantageous of one massive meal a day?

More clarity, focus and strength during the day. Then when you break your fast at night (6-9pm), you can fall asleep immediately! You channel your food coma to sleep deeply and soundly.

Cutting pork ribs with a scissor

Reduced fat accumulation

Intermittent fasting and one huge meal a day… better for lowering your body fat percentage.

Better strength gains?

Weighted chinups (4 plates)

I never eat anything before working out and lifting. As a consequence, I got more power, focus, and energy.

Floor bench press

Does a lion eat a granola bar before hunting a gazelle? No. Similar to us; if we workout when we are hungry, we have more energy and focus.


My Muscle Philosophy:

Treat your body as sculpture.

This is not my body

The first thing:

I don’t see my body as belonging to me. I look at my body like it belongs to someone else.

When I look at the Lamborghini of someone else, I admire it. When I see the muscles and physiques of anyone else, I admire it. Then I had the epiphany:

Why not transform my own body into a Lambo, and admire my own body instead?

The logic

The great logic:

  1. It is far cheaper to get buff than to buy a Lambo.
  2. The human body is the apex beauty. This means your personal goal in life should be to beautify your own personal body to the maximum (without plastic surgery, steroids, etc).
  3. Ultimate democratic approach: Genetics doesn’t matter. Sex doesn’t matter. Racial ethnicity doesn’t matter. Anyone can both add muscle mass and subtract fat.
  4. It doesn’t cost much to get ripped. Just intermittent fast [no breakfast, no lunch], one big ass meal a day, and mostly a ‘ketogenic’ diet.
  5. Your body is always with you. Why not beautify your body to inspire yourself?

The joy of sculpting your own body

To sculpt your own body is insanely fun. Why? You can see the change over time!

Once again, the goal is simple:

Never stop adding muscle mass, and never stop reducing body fat, or keeping it low (around 10%).

Muscle and your body is highly practical.

The more muscle you have, the more energy you got. The more power you got to make art-work, and live with gratitude, joy, and hyper-vigor.

Strengthen on, and flex on!
