The former NFL player has practiced intermittent fasting for years. He follows the 16:8 plan and eats his first meal at 2 p.m. He then eats from 2-10 p.m., even though he works out early in the morning.
"Now, within the times I don't eat, the fasting period, which is a 16-hour fasting, I drink amino acids drinks," he told Business Insider. "I'll have coffee, maybe tea. Sometimes I'll have a little coconut oil on a spoon that makes you feel a little satiated. But it's never a meal. And then, once I get on my meals, it's good."
He credits intermittent fasting for keeping him in great shape. "I can feel the difference. I literally can put pictures of myself now versus pictures of myself at 22 years old, and I look and feel much better right now," he said.
