In November 2008 I bought and read the e-book Eat Stop Eat. This book is considered in fitness circles to be the definitive guide to Intermittent Fasting. The author Brad Pilon was the first to my knowledge to exhaustively pour through the medical literature to study the effects of fasting on the human body.
I decided that I wouldn’t do a review on it at the time. Instead, I would test out the information. It would be premature to post a glowing review and then not make any health improvements. Behind the scenes I let my friend Nick know what I was up to. He decided to test out IF too and proceeded to lose 50 pounds. By April of 2009, I was convinced of the benefit of IF and I posted exhaustively on the subject. Since then I have received several reports from friends and readers about how much fat they lost.
Eat Stop Eat by Brad Pilon
Losing fat on a diet is no big deal. People do it all the time. The problem is that they often will regain the lost weight and more. This is why I waited so long to post a review of Eat Stop Eat. I wanted to see if the fat loss was indeed permanent. Based on my small sample pool it has been. It has with me. I carried a weight of 208-211 for almost a decade, but since implementing Intermittent Fasting I’m weight stable at 190. This is the real deal.
Art De Vany planted the idea of Intermittent Fasting in my head, but I needed more convincing. I wanted to know the nuts and bolts before I undertook such a radical change in my eating patterns. Eat Stop Eat was my guide. If you need help or guidance in beginning an Intermittent Fasting program, I highly recommend Eat Stop Eat. Eat Stop Eat anticipated and answered every concern I had about fasting. I’m 20 pounds lighter and this book gets a lot of the credit.
