Under this plan, Jericho found himself striving to make his daily big meal – or, in this case, a quasi-big eight-ounce meal – which would be followed by one or two more snacks later in the day.
“And that would be it,” he added. “Like any other diet—because I’ve been on a few of them—once you get into the hang of it, it’s really not so bad.”
Jericho preferred this approach to intermittent fasting, which he denounced as “the biggest scam in dieting.” He also noted that this diet has him drinking roughly 100 ounces of water daily, which is a new experience for him.
“I was never much of a water drinker, but now I’m pounding water,” he said. “Like, boom, I’ll drink 34 ounces—glug, glug, glug. You just gotta retrain your body, and once you’re able to do that, it isn’t so bad. I can still have a drink. I have my little shot glass for a little vodka, and it’s fine.”
Jericho is also keeping an eye on his weight to ensure he doesn’t balloon up again.
“I’m that guy who carries a scale with me everywhere,” he said. “If I’m over 210, I pull back. If it’s under 210, well, then I’ll have a cheeseburger. If it’s 205, then I’ll have a cheeseburger and a pizza. If it’s 215, then I’ll be strict on the diet for a couple days. Once you get there and maintain it, it’s okay. You just have to know where you’re at.”
