How To Hit 8% Body Fat With Intermittent Fasting (Thread):

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:

Most men look their best at sub 10% body fat.

You're lean, chiselled and sharp, and until you get there, you'll never hit your physical peak.

Invariably, I always get asked "But is this even possible? Isn't it unhealthy?"

Millions of athletes worldwide would indicate otherwise.

Now if you're over 40, beware the the difficulty level is a bit higher, but if you're up for the challenge, you CAN pull it off.

Here's how:
1) Begin With The 16:8 IF Model

It's the simplest variation of fasting, and the most common.

It's very effective, provided you do it EVERY DAY, consistently, long-term.

It makes it difficult to NOT lose fat, provided you eat sensibly.

2) Eliminate Sugar

"Is sugar really that bad though?"


If you've got any resemblance of a sugar addiction, it's going to make it next to impossible to get ripped.

8% body fat requires a CONSISTENT deficit.

Sugar is the anti-thesis of consistency.

Seriously analyse any:

- Sauces
- Spreads
- Drinks (sugary drinks are THE worst)
- Other 'trigger foods'

And remove them - these are going to be the sources of 'hidden sugar' and confusion as to why you can't stick to your diet.

3) Eliminate Alcohol (For Now)

It doesn't have to be forever, and frankly, a couple of glasses of red wine every other week isn't going to damage your journey to 8% body fat.

But regular drinking?

It HAS to go, until you get shredded.

Alcohol will absolutely get in the way.
4) Focus On Getting More 'Caveman Foods'


If caveman you couldn't eat it, put that fucker down and don't eat it.


Meat, fish, eggs, veggies.

You can't go wrong with the basics.

5) Get Some Daily Activity In

I don't recommend doing INTENSE daily activity, but on SOME days, it can be.


- Walking (every day)
- Cycling
- Swimming
- Anabolic cardio (Farmers Walks, Hill Sprints etc.)

This will really ramp up the calorie burn.

6) Make Sure You're In A 10%+ Calorie Deficit

Any less, and you won't really be losing much fat.

But what about more than this?
It's not a great idea - getting to 8% body fat is a marathon, not a sprint.

A mini-cut would be different, but getting shredded never happens overnight, and is more of a long-term project.

He who has the most patience, will be the victor.

7) Keep Protein High, While Gradually Reducing Carbs

Protein should never drop.

Protein should always be at least 0.8g per pound of BW, and the leaner you get, the higher this goes.

Carbs need to slowly come down, to maintain that deficit as you lose weight.


This will not be easy, and if you're not ready to commit to getting to sub 10% body fat, you're not going to make it.

If you let other people influence your actions and your goals, you will never succeed.

Be self-directed.

Stay focused.

And you'll get there.
