-- get most of your calories from meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and beans/legumes
-- avoid all refined sugars, flours, and fats (such as trans fats)
-- limit your intake of starchy carbs (e.g. breads, rice, potatoes, etc.)
-- eat a small, protein-rich snack or meal about every 3 hours during the day to minimize appetite and maximize metabolism
-- eat one or two cheat meals per week

-- do full-body circuit training workouts based around compound exercises (like pushups, pullups, and squats)
-- do high intensity interval training (HIIT) cardio exercise a few times a week
-- take up a sport or intense activity (like hiking) and do it as often as possible
