Never Skip Desert

Here is a summary of Alex Hormozi's diet approach:

Determine your goal: Whether you want to get bigger, smaller, or maintain your current weight.

  1. Calculate your calorie intake: Use a coefficient (ranging from 7 to 21) based on your goal and multiply it by your body weight. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds and want to get leaner, you can choose a coefficient of 10, resulting in 2,000 calories.

  2. Determine protein intake: Multiply your body weight by 1 gram per pound to calculate your protein intake. For instance, if you weigh 200 pounds, you would consume 200 grams of protein per day.

  3. Plan your meals: Choose a protein source(s) to meet your protein requirement and calculate the calorie content of your protein source(s). Deduct the protein calories from your total calorie intake. The remaining calories can be allocated to other food choices.

  4. Flexibility with remaining calories: The leftover calories can be used for business dinners, drinks, or indulgences like ice cream or cookies. You have the freedom to allocate these calories based on your preferences.

  5. Consistency in breakfast and lunch: Alex eats the same breakfast, which includes a 200-calorie bar with 20 grams of protein, and a shake with 30 grams of protein and 160 calories. For lunch, he consumes a pound of turkey (560 calories) and one cup of rice (1140 calories).

  6. Dinner as a flexible meal: Alex prefers a pound of protein for dinner, but it's not mandatory. The dinner can be adjusted based on personal preferences, as long as it fits within the daily calorie and protein goals.

  7. Supplements: Alex takes a multivitamin instead of consuming greens.

It's important to note that this is Alex Hormozi's personal approach and what has worked for him. He acknowledges that it may not be scientifically researched but encourages individuals to find what works for them and stick with it.
