I think the most important concepts that I took away from the book were:
- Skip breakfast - your body is in its best fat burning mode in the morning. Eating a heavy breakfast would put stress to your digestive system. Personally, skipping breakfast is wonderful since I really don't have the time for it and I don't have much of an appetite in the morning. Plus the lack of digestive stress makes me more mentally alert.
- Fast for about 12-14 hours after your last meal (hence the no breakfast rule)
- Stay away from carbs during the day. Eat your carbs at night. You will sleep better because of it too (think about it, how many times have you felt like sleeping after taking nasi lemak for breakfast and then eat more rice during lunchtime?). This is also one of the best tips I got from the Renegade Diet. My sleep quality has taken on a whole new level and I feel very well rested when I wake up in the morning.
Of course, there are so many other things that you can learn from the book, like how to repair an impaired immune system (this one was really interesting). But don't take my word for it. I strongly suggest for anyone who is serious about fat loss or muscle gain the healthy, natural way to immediately go get the book.
For the record, I don't get a single sen promoting this book (I could if I use my affiliate link but I'm just too damn lazy. Plus I don't have much of a readership to really profit anyway). I just want people to know how easy it actually is to take care of your diet no matter your objective.
