  1. Just a note: When you talked about BCAA intake, around 9min… You are misleading. It's not about the amount of calories that you take that break your fast (you said 45cal I think). Being in a "fasted state", by definition means that your insulin level is at "base level". You can consume less than 45cal and not be at base level anymore. Fasted vs. not, doesn't mean "full vs. empty" stomach", it is insulin levels at base vs. above base.

    I love your program, keep up the good work 😉

  2. Hi ZDudes! Why don't you post 1x weekly an entire week of workout/diet/ZD thoughts etc.? That way I will know, say on every Sunday, what the week's workout plan is. Just a thought since posting daily can be challenging for a start-up business. I follow others on YT and like the format.

  3. The Zen Dudes were not around back when I started my weight loss journey but I can tell you that they are spot on, righteous and living in the moment.

    Nutrition > Exercise
    Cardio > Weights
    Body Resistance > Traditional Gym Work

    Nothing beat managing calories for weight loss. I repeat, NOTHING.

    My results = Over 100lbs lost in one year. Maintained and kept off for 5 years now.

    Worth mentioning: Mid 40s, Ironman Triathlete, 10+ time Ultra-Marathon finisher (but never ran a step until I was 38). Am I ripped like the Zen Dudes, Nope, but in my mid 40s I am not afraid to walk around without a shirt on.

  7. Hey Brothers, I ordered the jump rope on 22nd Jan 2017 following the link you have mentioned in your youtube videos. But it is still not delivered to me. It seems to be held by customs in India… Dont know why.
