Did you ever wonder how sumo wrestlers got so big? Averaging well over 300 and some as much as 500 pounds and more? You would think that they consume massive amounts of food, all day long to maintain that much weight on their frames.
Most sumo schools have their athletes working out as much as 6 or 7 hours a day for years to achieve greatness in an endeavor that can be over in mere seconds. What is their secret? One meal a day. Right before bedtime. They train their starvation response to store everything that they eat as fat, everytime they eat. Want to lose fat? Don’t do that. Eat early in the morning, eat little meals all day long, don’t let the starvation response get started, no starches(carbs) within 6 hours of sleeping.
Could part of the secret of weightloss be when you eat? Apparently it is part of the secret of weight gain. Could it be that simple? Probably not but it does paint a great big red target on what not to do, don’t you think?
