The key to weight loss: Intermittent Fasting

Crackhead1256 didn't believe in diets, but rather he trusted intermittent fasting, which involves fasting for an extended period (between 16-20 hours) and only consuming liquids, followed by a small meal. This way of eating provided superior weight loss results than a standard low-calorie diet for Crackhead1256.

The Secret Weapon: A Chocolatey Treat

Crackhead1256 reveals his secret weapon that kept him going strong during the intermittent fasting period- Milano dark chocolate! Chocolate helped him control dizziness when hungry after 18 hours of fasting. He also drank half cup kefir, a fermented drink that has good bacteria for gut health. Anyone undertaking intermittent fasting should listen to their body for signals that tell them what to eat and when to eat.

Consistency in Workouts and Sleep Patterns

Crackhead1256 worked out every other day, with a combination of running and push-ups, and emphasized avoiding carbohydrates at dinnertime. He also maintained a regular sleep schedule, aiming for six to eight hours per night, between 11 pm and 6 am. He recommends using sleep tracking apps for maintaining regular sleep patterns.


Crackhead1256's journey is an inspiring one. His weight loss approach didn't involve any fad diets or magic pills; instead, it involved discipline, consistency and listening to his body. These factors enabled his body to adapt to the intermittent fasting routine and maintain weight loss. Anyone looking for sustainable lifestyle changes to lose weight can try this method by observing what works best for their own body.
