Why You Should Only “Diet” for Half the Day
By Nate Miyaki
Has your teenaged six-pack turned into a full sized middle-age keg?
Has that morning muffin morphed into an ugly bikini-killing muffin top?
Are your boobs nice, natural and round…but you’re a dude?
Okay, you get the point. I am NOT trying to make you feel bad about yourself. In fact, I want you to know that I’m no better than you are.
I completely understand your situation because me and my family suffered from the exact same things.
We’re all really busy people. And we were so focused on our jobs and our family lives that our bodies became a sagging flabby wreck of what they used to be. It’s like we blinked and looked up and we were horribly out of shape.
It was terrible! Or at least it used to be…
Here’s what me and my wife look like now…
And no, she’s not a “fitness chick.” She’s got a busy life just like you.
I want you to know that you can do the same thing we did. You can win your war on fat. You just need the right strategies. And I’ll share mine with you right here on this page.
I know what you’re thinking…
Losing that stubborn fat seems pretty overwhelming. Maybe you even tried it before without much luck. Well don’t worry. I know exactly why those other plans didn’t work for you. Because they didn’t work for me either.
First, they’re so impractical that only a full-time athlete could stick to them.
It’s a freaking fast-paced world we live in. And it’s even faster for the busy professional. Your work week is already packed with phone calls, emails, meetings, business dinners and travel. When the day is over, you just want to go home and relax. But sorry, too bad, that isn’t happening… You have to pay the bills, manage investments, take care of errands, clean the house and stalk people on Facebook.
Oh yeah, and you also want to spend time with your family and squeeze in a social life before your head hits the pillow. You get a little sleep — usually not enough — and then you get up and do it all again tomorrow.
Does that sound like you? Well, that was me too. Just how the hell are you supposed to get in shape on top of all that? Even if you knew how?
Simple. Do what I did.
I know your job and/or your family is your top priority. And life doesn’t stop because you suddenly decided it’s time to be the star of your own personal Gun Show or Thong Song.
So here’s the good news…
I’m not a crazy fitness athlete. And I don’t come from the land where fake tans and spandex flow like wine, either. I know that deciding to change and changing aren’t the same things.
I’ve spent my career working with real people in the real world. And that’s great news for you. Because if you want to transform your life and look great naked, you’re going to need a good plan and some practical real-world advice.
And that’s where my Half Day approach really shines.
The Half Day Advantage
Mainstream diet books, fitness mags and health blogs can all be reasonably good sources of info. But do you know what I hate about them?
Most of that stuff only works for people in the fitness business: trainers, full time models or competitive athletes. Men and women who are able to give up a normal life for rapid change and short-term results.
But that’s not you, is it?
I’m betting you’re a guy like me or a gal like my wife. You just want an easy plan that let’s you look great naked while living a normal life. And you don’t have time to eat 6 meals a day or carry around tiny Tupperware containers of food to get there.
I know from experience that everyone can get in great shape while having a real life. And I want as many people as possible to have a hot body. Hey, I’m shallow like that and I like looking at hot people on the beach.
Okay, so how are you going to get there?
You’re going to focus on the functionality, practicality, and sustainability of a diet plan first. What the heck does that mean? It means that if something doesn’t work in the real world — for the majority of people, not that 1% of the population who are fitness professionals — then you’re going to drop it. And it doesn’t matter what science or tradition says.
Now don’t get me wrong. The research is still important, and all fat loss plans need a solid science base. My Half Day approach is backed by serious academic studies. I’m a geek and I love that stuff. But you don’t have to. You just need to know that it’s really easy, and it works.
So here’s the thing about practicality…
When you start forming your plans around what you can actually stick to in the real world, you realize that a lot of the established “truths” in the fitness and nutrition industries are nothing but myths with no basis in science.
Sometimes they’re even flat out lies based on political influence. Or they’re designed to sell you a bunch of bullshit you don’t really need.
These dumb fitness myths are actually keeping you fat!
Makes you mad, eh? I know. It made me mad too.
In fact, it made me so mad I sat down and created my own approach. And it’s been working for my clients ever since. Busy people. People with lives. People like you and me.
I’m telling you that it really IS possible to look great year-round. And you don’t have to give up your career or social life to do it either.
Here’s What It’s Like to Lose the Flab while Only “Dieting” Half the Day
You get to choose from four different eating plans, and pick the one that best fits your lifestyle and personal preferences.
You never have to go to bed hungry.
You get one “cheat day” a week where you can eat whatever you like! That’s right…you don’t have to give up ice cream, pizza, French fries, or other foods forever.
You can get great results with Half Day, even if you don’t exercise regularly or you’re too busy to increase the amount of time you already spend exercising.
You can follow this program and still drink the occasional cocktail or glass of beer or wine. So yeah, you don’t have to give up your social life.
You won’t starve, feel deprived, have your energy levels plummet, or turn into a moody, non-functioning mess — you’ll feel satisfied, energized, and happy instead!
“Okay — So Tell Me How to Eat Already!”
You got it! Here’s what your typical day will look like when you follow my plan.
1 cup of coffee or tea
1 cup of frozen blueberries
Mixed greens with grilled chicken
1 cup of frozen mango, slightly thawed
Steak and broccoli
If you’re following a workout program, add some white rice or potato
Now that doesn’t sound so bad, does it? You’ll never go hungry when you’re eating with me. Some of my clients even have to break “supper” into two separate meals. And that beats the heck out of starving!
Here’s another example of a Half Day day:
1 cup of coffee or tea
3-Egg Scramble with Veggies
Naked Fajitas with Frozen Mango (thawed slightly) and sliced avocado
If you’re following a workout program, then serve it over a bed of rice
*You’ll base your serving sizes on your current bodyweight, metabolic condition, activity levels and physique goals.
There you have it. Not bad for a “diet,” eh?
But it’s just the first step. Besides choosing the right foods, the number one fat loss and body shaping diet breakthrough I’ve made over my career has been something most nutrition gurus call “meal timing.”
In fact, I’ve centered my entire nutrition system around WHEN to eat certain types of food to accelerate your fat loss and body sculpting goals.
This approach has worked for me, for my wife Kalai, and for the hundreds of men and women from every walk of life that I’ve coached over the past 12 years in my San Francisco personal training company.

I love working out and this article inspires me to hit it harder in the gym and let more sweat out through my cardio. Exercise has really helped me prolong my life since I had been diagnosed with type II diabetes. I can easily regulate my blood sugar because of exercise and a healthy diet of course.
These are very helpful suggestions on how to properly diet and why a half-a-day diet is quite advantageous.
