Jon Skywalker Diet
Jon Skywalker, with his aesthetic muscles and amazing perspective in the health and fitness lifestyle, can teach you a lot of things. However, one of the more important lessons would have to be this… beauty comes in all different sizes. See yourself as a diamond in the rough, and cut and polish yourself to your ideals. Whatever that idealized perfection is, make it yours.
As an ectomorph, Jon Skywalker faced a lot of hardships in his journey. In the beginning, it probably seemed like the whole world was against his dreams. He began his story anyway, as a lanky seventeen-year-old boy who didn’t have an ounce of muscle in his body, and not five years later he went from 145 lbs to 200 lbs of pure muscle.
Now, not only has Jon Skywalker achieved his goals, he went beyond that and has been influencing others through his big social-media following.

Because of the way his body works, with his faster than average metabolism and tall height, the transformation of his dreams required a lot of work. However, he kept at it. Not, giving up became his greatest strength, and soon he began to see the results.
Jon Skywalker had no need to burn fat, just to gain muscle. So he focuses more on toning and strength training because that’s what works for him. Because what works for one will not necessarily work for another.

Jon Skywalker Diet
If you’re wondering how it is that he maintains that physique, well you’re not alone. However, the answer to that might not be the one you want to hear. As mentioned, Jon is an ectomorph, he has spoken about it in several occasions and had once said “…the bad thing about being a tall ectomorph is naturally I stop getting hungry after like 30 calories, so 2 days of slacking on my caloric intake and I lose 8lbs!”
What this means, is that he has a harder time maintaining fat rather than actually losing it. His body is just not made for fat or water retention, which allows him to keep his low body fat percentage whilst keeping the muscle. He also has to bulk up often with foods that are high in proteins and good carbs.
He doesn’t follow one specific diet, he just keeps away from processed foods that he knows are bad, although he has been known to indulge occasionally as well to fulfill his cravings.
On his website he posted about having this meal in order to bulk up:
“Pretty good day today carbed up on English muffins and honey all day haha #bulking.”
Here is a simple recipe that can be found on realsimplefood.com:
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1 ¼-oz. envelope active dry yeast
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cups white whole- wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon table salt
- Oil, for bowl and skillet
- ¼ cup plain yellow cornmeal
How to Make It
- Step 1
- Microwave buttermilk until warm, about 30 seconds. Stir in sugar and yeast. Set aside until bubbly, about 15 minutes.
- Step 2
- Pour yeast mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment. Stir in honey, butter, flour, and salt. Beat on low for 2 minutes, scraping down sides after 1 minute. Increase speed to medium and beat until smooth, 7 minutes. (Dough will be sticky.) Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic and set in a warm, draft-free place until doubled, 1½ to 2 hours.
- Step 3
- Turn dough onto a lightly floured work surface and roll out into a 1-inch-thick rectangle. Fold into thirds like a letter, cover with plastic, and let rest for 10 minutes.
- Step 4
- Dust a baking sheet with cornmeal. Cut dough into 12 pieces. Roll each into a ball, place on baking sheet, and pat into a 1-inch-thick disk, turning to coat in cornmeal. Cover with plastic; let rest until puffy, 30 to 40 minutes.
- Step 5
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium; lightly brush with oil. Cook muffins until golden brown and firm, about 5 minutes per side.
