HOW TO GET CUT.
I’ve wanted to get cut (low body fat percentage, to see my 6-pack) for my entire life.
I am now cut, and want to share with you the secrets on how I got cut. This probably won’t work for you — but it worked for me.
1. Don’t eat breakfast or lunch
I practice ‘intermittent fasting’ — abstaining (most of the time) from breakfast or lunch. Of course, I cheat sometimes.
The first reason I don’t eat breakfast or lunch is that I get tired after eating breakfast or lunch (even when following a ‘ketogenic’ diet— with is high fat, moderate protein, and very low carbs). I feel the purpose of my life is to create empowering information for others, and nothing can get in my way of achieving that. Not even food.
So instead, I drink a lot of coffee (black, no sugar, no milk) and a lot of water. Coffee is great, as it is an appetite suppressant. Water is good too, because it hydrates me, and distracts me even when I am hungry in the day.
I usually have my first meal at around 5-6pm. Then I will have a ‘second dinner’ of around 6 eggs at around 10pm before I sleep.
The common misconception is that I am ‘starving’ myself. I am not. I am just changing the timing of my food intake.
For example, I still probably eat the same amount of food in a day— but I don’t eat it during the day. I only eat in the evening, and eat as much as I want, until I feel full.
2. I don’t drink alcohol, consume sugar, or simple carbs
The easiest way to get cut isn’t to run 10 miles a day. The easiest way is what to cut from your diet or lifestyle.
For me, I no longer drink alcohol (beer, wine, hard alcohol), I no longer consume sugar (high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, sugar), and I don’t eat simple carbs (bread, pasta, muffins, etc).
Instead, my diet is primarily consists of fatty pork, chicken, beef, eggs, and lots of veggies (green and leafy, not starchy veggies like potatoes).
It is a common misconception that eating fat makes you fat. In-fact, it is scientifically proven that abstaining from sugar and starchy foods (bread, pasta, sugar, rice, etc) will cause you to lose massive amounts of body fat. I recommend reading ‘Good calories, bad calories’ by Gary Taubes.
3. Taking it to the next level
For a long time, I followed a ‘ketogenic’ diet and went to the gym a lot. I still had trouble losing body fat.
The only thing that helped— intermittent fasting.
I used to believe the naive concept that you needed to eat breakfast before you started your day — kind of thinking of the human body like a gasoline car. A car only runs if we put in gas. But as human beings, we are much more complex systems. To learn more, read ‘ANTIFRAGILE’ by Nassim Taleb.
Our body can create energy through a process called ‘Ketosis’— in breaking down the body fat we have in our bodies to create energy. There is a real story of a 300+ pound man who fasted for nearly a month (ate nothing, only drank water) and lost 100+ pounds of fat. His body fat stores kept him alive. And evolutionary speaking— it makes sense. We put on fat on our bodies to keep us alive, when there is no food. Because in the past, we did not have the luxury of eating ‘3 square meals a day.’
Of course you cannot build muscle without exercise.
I personally follow this regimen: I workout when I feel like it, and like a kid.
I do chin-ups in bathroom stalls, covering my hands with toilet paper.
I do chin-ups at the park whenever I see a chin-up bar. I do them until I get tired or bored.
I do pushups at home, and do yoga at home for fun. I also do it mostly for my lower-back pain.
I also do lunges, and 1-legged ‘pistol squats.’
I no longer count repetitions. I just do it until it feels good, and stop when I am bored.
I also do deadlifts (the ‘1-rep maximum’ powerlifting style) whenever I have access to a gym. I also don’t lift with a belt. Even without a belt, I was able to deadlift 410 pounds without injuring my back. I think belts and straps are dumb.
I have also not taken any protein power or supplements, and have experimented not eating anything after my workouts.
So for example, I might ‘workout’ in the morning at 11am, and then eat nothing until 6pm. And I haven’t lost any muscle mass. If anything, I probably gained more muscle mass— through the IGF growth hormone which is stimulated with intermittent fasting.
5. Don’t fear hunger
I am still afraid of going hungry. I hate going to sleep hungry. But I have started to fast as a means to feeling connected to the hungry and destitute all around the world.
If we can conquer our hunger, and our fear of hunger, we can conquer anything in life.
For me, when I get hungry, I go on a walk to take my mind off it. Or I watch a movie. Or I read a book, do some pushups on the ground, do some writing, listen to music, or drink more coffee.
I think it is only out of our weak will can we not go 24 hours without food. Many people go several days without eating, or even fasting a week. Why can I not go 24 hours without food— when Muslims all around the world do so (without water and food) from sunrise to sunset?
I’m still experimenting, but I know that after 7 years, I can finally see my 6-pack again. And I feel sharp, strong, powerful, and fearless.
I just want to share this with you because I had so much difficulty finding information on the internet about this. So much of the workout fitness industry is selling you dumb shit like protein powder, BCAA supplements, and all this snake oil stuff.
I have been able to get cut without any supplements or protein powder. I only consumed coffee, water, meat, and green veggies. And I wasn’t a slave to a gym, nor some dumb workout plan.
If I can do it as a skinny Asian guy— so can you.

How to make a perfect Photoshop cut-out
Sometimes you can’t avoid shooting a subject in front of a background that’s not particularly interesting, and one way of making such backdrops less distracting is to shoot with a wide aperture setting, creating a shallow depth of field to blur the background and let the eye focus on your subject. Alternatively you can make a Photoshop cut-out of the person and drop them into a more interesting setting!
To do this you will need to use Photoshop’s tools to select, copy and paste a person into a more attractive location. However, creating a convincing composite can be a challenge, especially if the subject is standing against a detailed background (find out how to fix background distractions in Photoshop).
You’ll find that bits of unwanted background will cling to the subject’s outline — especially in areas of intricate detail such as hair. In the process of removing the background you can lose some of this edge detail, making the subject look obviously like a Photoshop cut-out.
The improved Refine Edge command in Photoshop CS5 includes powerful tools to help you modify an initial selection and retain delicate details, notably the Smart Radius option, which adjusts the width of the radius over which refinements are applied depending on the degree of detail, and two brushes for adjusting the radius in particular areas.
We’ll show you how to use these tools to transplant a city-dwelling subject into a more flattering and attractive location, and how to fine-tune the results of the Refine Edge command still further by using Layer Masks and Blending Modes.
Step 1: Make a selection
Open your original image of your person — here we’ve used a photo of a woman in front of a distracting background and an image of palm trees against a blue sky, which is our desired background.
Take the Quick Selection tool from the Tools palette. Tick the Auto Enhance box in the Options bar to give your selection a smoother, less blocky edge. Brush over the woman to ‘paint’ a selection marquee that snaps to her outline. Don’t worry if bits of background hiding in her hair get selected, or if fine edge hairs are excluded from the selection — you can tidy up these problem areas later.
Step 2: Launch Refine Edge
Click the Refine Edge button in the Options bar (or go to Select>RefineEdge). In the Refine Edge dialog, open the View menu and choose On Layers to view unselected areas as transparency. Tick the Smart Radius box, and set Radius to 2 to start refining the edge. Set Smoothness to 9 for a less blocky edge. At this stage some wisps of hair will be missing from the selection, while you’ll see bits of unwanted background.
Step 3: Fine-tune the radius
Click the brush icon next below the Hand tool and choose the Refine Radius tool. In the Options bar set Size to 60. Brush around the edges of the hair to add missing strands to the selection, and brush over bits of visible background to remove them. If you remove hairs or reveal bits of background, switch to the Erase Refinements tool and brush over those areas to restore them. Set Contrast to 16%, Shift Edge to +20 and Output to New Layer with Layer Mask.
Step 4: Edit the Layer Mask
Click OK to create a duplicate layer with a mask based on the refined selection. Take the Brush tool, set the foreground colour to white, click the mask to target it and carefully paint in missing hair detail. Tap the left square bracket key to reduce the brush size while you work, and the right square bracket to increase the size. To hide background pixels that are still visible press X to switch to a black brush.
Step 5: Add a new background
Now open your desired background image (in our case, the palm trees), go to Select>All and then Edit>Copy. Switch to the image of your main subject (in our case, the woman), go to Edit> Paste to add the palm trees as a new layer, and drag it below the ‘Background copy’ layer in the Layers palette. To mimic a shallow depth of field go to Filter>Blur>Lens Blur. Under Iris, Set Radius to 75, under Specular Highlights, set Brightness to 25 and Threshold to 235. Add some grain by setting Noise Amount to 1. Click OK.
Step 6: Remove white fringes
Drag the ‘Background copy’ layer onto the Create new layer icon to duplicate it, and change the ‘Background copy 2’ layer’s Blending Mode to Darken. This will keep the dark hair visible while causing lighter background pixels to vanish. Click on the original ‘Background copy’ layer’s mask. Set Opacity to 100%. Spray a black brush tip around the hair’s outline to hide it. This will reveal the fringe-free hairs from the ‘Background copy 2’ layer.
Final Photoshop Tip
It can be a real challenge to restore a subject’s hidden hairs when painting on a mask. However, if you Shift- click on the Layer Mask you can temporarily disable it (you’ll see a red cross), revealing the original image. Take a small white brush and carefully brush over any hair strands you want to restore. Click on the mask again to turn it back on and those hairs will now have become more visible.

The Complete Guide To Getting It Right
No, it doesn’t involve a bowl
If your mum ever took to a pair of scissors and a bowl to give you a trim, we understand that the thought of cutting your own hair could be the last thing on your mind. And, admittedly, we’re loathe to tell you how to cut your own hair instead of making an appointment with your hairdresser.
‘I would never recommend cutting your own hair or fringe – regular Hare and Bone clients can receive complimentary fringe trims at our salon which takes seconds!’ says Sam Burnett, owner and Creative Director of Hare and Bone and KMS Style Council Member.
That said, there are occasions when you simply don’t have the time (or the money!) to get your hair cut at the salon. You can still do the job yourself – very carefully – at home.
‘If it’s an emergency and you decide to trim your own fringe, make sure the hair is clean and dried in its natural texture and then, using good quality hairdressing scissors, trim with the points of the scissors holding them at a parallel angle to the direction of the hair flow.’
With those tips in mind, follow the below step-by-step guides from hairstylist Lee Stafford to get DIY haircutting right.
How to cut your own hair shorter
As this is a dry cut there is no need to wash your hair before you start. You must, however, ensure your hair is really smooth, especially if you have naturally frizzy hair because it can make the cut uneven.
- Tip your head upside down, brush your hair forward and gather it into a nice tight, smooth, secure ponytail that sits on your hairline in the centre of your forehead.
- Take a comb and measure from your hairline where you want your first layer to sit – this could be just below the cheekbones or the bottom of your chin, it is up to you.
- Hold your ponytail firmly, then take your hairdressing scissors and cut the hair in a straight line at the length you measured with the comb.
- Now that you have cut any excess length off you need to tip your head forward slightly and put the comb behind your hair.
- Hold your scissors pointing directly into the end of the pony tail and chip into the blunt ends. This will help give the hair a softer appearance and get rid of that blunt look. When you can’t see any more hard edges you know it’s time to stop.
- Pull off the hair band and shake your hair so it falls into place and style it as desired.
How to cut your own hair into a bob or lob
- Start by pulling your hair into a clean and neat ponytail at the back of your head, it needs to sit as tight as you can get it at the bottom of your hair line, right in the centre.
- Take your hairdressing scissors and cut straight across your ponytail, underneath the bobble. This will result in your hair dropping just on top of your shoulders. If you need to, you can look in a mirror and see where your hair will sit before cutting it.
- Your hair will now fall into a choppy, graduated bob hairstyle or lob hairstyle, but can be a little blunt for some people.
- If you prefer something slightly softer then tip your head upside down so you are looking at the floor. Gently chip into the ends of your hair, holding your scissors at a 90 degree angle. This will create a softer, diffused line.
- Tip your head back over, shake it out and wear it poker straight or add some waves for movement.
How to trim your own fringe
- Firstly, section your hair (so you don’t include any hair your don’t want in your fringe) and pin it back away from your face.
- Then, using hairdressing scissors – this is really important, you will not be able to achieve the same look with household scissors, it will end up a mess – hold them at a 90 degree angle and gently chip into your existing fringe. This will thin out the hair, resulting in a light weight, natural fringe.
- Avoid cutting straight across your face because this will create a very blunt fringe, which can be difficult to correct later.
How To Get Perfect Cuts From Your Circular Saw
It sure would be nice to have a table saw setup in the garage. It would also be sweet to have a hot tub home theater in there, but life is full of disappointments.
Fortunately, you don’t need a table saw to get perfectly straight cuts out of sheet materials. All you need is a Circular Saw and a Guide Track, and you can get all the perfectly straight cuts you need.
And while we’re on the subject of “glass-is-half-full” rationalism, you’re going to find that using the circular saw and guide track over the table saw will be easier because you’ll be moving a bantamweight circular saw over plywood rather than a heavy sheet of plywood over the table saw.
There were a few slightly variant techniques to execute the perfectly straight cut– with various tools– but we were most impressed with Jay Bates’ method on Instructables.com, and we used that as our road map.
So, without further ado, the perfect cut:
Tools and Equipment Needed
- One sheet of 1/2″ plywood. You don’t need the whole sheet, but you do need the full 8′ length.
SAFETY TIP: Your circular saw is one of the most dangerous power tools in your arsenal. When accidents happen, they usually happen fast and without warning– and more often than not, the damage is bad. The most frequent and dangerous blunder is binding the blade in a cut. This can happen when the saw blade is set too deep and more of the blade is exposed while cutting. The saw blade jumps up and kick back at you. It also happens when you’re cutting a long board or large sheet of plywood in half without the proper support. To prevent this, make sure the cut-off piece is free to drop or move away from the blade. This will eradicate any chance of binding and make your cuts safer.
1. Cutting the Fence Board
First, make sure the plywood you’ve got has at least one perfectly straight factory edge. You can tell by looking down the full 8-foot length of the board. If it looks straight, it should be straight enough to use. Mark the straight factory edge to keep track of it throughout the project. Nothing can drive you as crazy as forgetting which one it is. Lay the plywood down on the sawhorses to work. Cut a small piece off of the long direction, about a 3”-wide piece. Cut it as straight as you can, but it doesn’t have to be exact.
The main thing to keep track of here is the plywood’s factory edge. It’s the right edge in the above photo.
2. Cutting the Base
Because the factory edge has been verified as straight, it’s the most important part of the track build– but it’s only half of the saw’s guide. We still need a base for it to ride on. So, use the factory edge as a guide and clamp it on both sides to the rest of the plywood to saw off another strip. This time, it should be around 9” wide.
With the first strip clamped down and ready to be used as a reference fence for the circular saw, you might notice there’s some flex in the middle of the panel. To prevent this, clamp a piece of scrap wood in the center of the plywood on the opposite side of the first strip. This should prevent the first strip from flexing.
Then, with the saw tracking against the factory edge of the first strip, cut the 9” wide base strip (photo immediately above).
3. Putting It Together
Here’s where measurements might differ a little from saw to saw. You may have to adjust your dimensions as needed. With the circular saw blade resting against an edge of the plywood, measure the distance from the furthest edge of the circular saw base plate to the blade. Here it’s 3-3/4″, but, as mentioned, your measurement may be different (top photo above)
The first strip with the factory edge will be glued and nailed to the wider base strip, but the factory edge needs to be just a little further from one edge of the base strip than the distance from the blade of the circular saw to the furthest edge of the saw base plate. So, here it was set at close to 4” on both sides, and the base strip was marked (middle photo above).
After adding glue to the smaller strip, nail it to the base strip, ensuring it is on the reference lines from the previous step.
4. The Zero Clearance Line
The precision of the jig comes from this important step. Once the smaller strip is secure and the glue dried, make a cut referencing against the factory edge of the smaller strip. This establishes a “zero clearance line” for where the circular saw will cut every time you use the track.
5. Perfect, Straight Cuts
Step 5: Enjoy Perfectly Straight Cuts
So, now we can see that the outside edge of the base strip is exactly where the circular saw will cut when it slides across this track. Simply line up the edge of the track with reference marks on your material, clamp it down, and cut a perfect line every time. Remember, the saw blade will remove a little bit of material as well, so best practice is to place the track on top of the material you are cutting to length and not the off-cut of your material.
Having this 8′ track is incredibly handy for cutting sheet material, but it can be unwieldly when you need to make smaller precision cuts. For this reason, you may want to make another 8′ track and cut it into 5′ and 3′ sections.
Even the best carpenter can’t do good work with a dull blade. And besides making lousy cuts, a dull blade is dangerous. Dull blades can heat up and warp or bind, and they tend to climb out of the cut. But how do you know if your blade is too dull? The best indicator is how the blade cuts. If you have to muscle your way through the cut, your blade is dull. A sharp blade will glide through even the toughest wood. Burn marks and rough cuts are other signs of a dull blade. When it’s time to get your replacement, we recommend a plywood blade with at least 140 teeth like this:

How To Get The Perfect Blunt Cut
Four years ago, ITG wrote a story on the rise of French girl hair—that layered, choppy, not too pristine look—and four years later, its star is still rising. Just look at Emily Ratajkowski, Jen Atkin, and countless other stylish ladies with that casual, tousled look. I’m a huge fan, don’t get me wrong, but I’m ready to move on. Instead, let’s bring back young Cher, Carine Roitfeld, and nearly every Versace show since the Gianni days. Let’s bring back the Blunt Cut. Please?
Let’s say you’re a former French socialite looking for a new ‘do—how does one Get The Look, so to speak? The man to ask was Joey Silvestera, owner of Blackstones salon. (Emily Ferber, forever in pursuit of the perfect blunt cut, goes to Joey and says he’s the only one who’s ever come close to getting it perfect.) He’s a blunt cut apostle and predicts a comeback in the next few years: «We’ve seen beach hair for the last half decade, so I think more graphic, geometric shapes are on the horizon.» This is a great place for an ahead of the curve joke, but I’m just going to leave it.
Despite the name, the transition to blunt from whatever you’ve got going on might not be so tough. The technique is simple, according to Joey. «For me, definition of a blunt haircut is when the scissors are cutting straight across, which leaves a very clean and precise edge to the shape when done properly,» he says. «Generally, I encourage blunt hair cutting for people with fine to medium hair texture and densities. It makes hair look and feel fuller and is less likely to break down overtime, where over-texturizing fine to medium hair speeds up the breakage process.» If you’re fine-medium and looking for an easy trick for fuller hair, take note.
But what about thicker hair? Says Joey, you just need to know what to ask for. «The issue with blunt cuts and thick hair is that the cut builds up too much weight, when the hair is mid-length. Over the years, to reduce weight and still create a clean line, you can take a section from the occipital bone»—lower back part of the skull—»to the top of the ears and reduce weight by undercutting. This underneath length can be anywhere from shaved to finger length.»
There you have it: blunt cuts, for all!
And hey, it’s winter now (oficially today! December 21st), so in the event you hate it, you’ve got about three months of hat season to grow things out. Just joking—you’re going to love it. ‘Tis the season to change up your hair. Blunt cuts 2017!
