Jimmy Kimmel lost 25 pounds first by replacing two meals a day with protein shakes and eating a small dinner, then by adopting the 5:2 intermittent fasting plan, or Fast Diet, which has has been doing for several years.
"On Monday and Thursday, I eat fewer than 500 calories a day, then I eat like a pig for the other five days," he told Men's Journal. "You 'surprise' the body, keep it guessing." He added that on fasting days, he eats very little, such as coffee and pickles, peanut butter and an apple, or maybe oatmeal if he's really hungry. The rest of the week, he eats pretty much whatever he wants.
"It sounds hard, but you get used to it and learn you can get through it," he said, "It's helped me stay at 182 pounds. And it's made me appreciate the food that I do eat."
