I come across Brad Pilon’s Eat Stop Eat when I was researching to write an ebook on IF. I’m glad that Brad has not only done the entire writing job, he is also a far better qualified author than me.
After all, I am someone who practices IF and can tell you that it works with great results. But for ‘why’ and ‘how’, I’ll let Brad to tell you. Apart from being nutrition professional, Brad is also an athlete. See his bio below.
Two Reasons You Must Read Eat Stop Eat
(1) To start with, Brad said: “A true weight loss plan does NOT have to be complicated. In fact, the simpler the program the better the results will be. The more restrictive the diet, the more likely it will fail you.”
I can’t agree with this more. If you’ve ever browsed my food blog, you will notice that I never have to restrict on what I eat. Brad never tell me what to eat, it’s all up to me. I shed 20 pounds in six months by eating anything I love to eat.
(2) Brad emphasizes that your metabolism will not slow down, you will not lose muscle, your workouts will not suffer, and you will not become a ravenous eating machine. With Eat Stop Eat you will clearly see the research behind why short periods of fasting will NEVER cause you to go into starvation mode.
Again, I must say this is completely true. If you’ve browsed my ‘workout’ session in this blog, you will notice that I can do my daily workout during lunch hour, without lunch and breakfast. As Brad reveals, I feel energized and alert all the time. Throughout my four years of intermittent fasting, I had never experienced slow metabolism or starvation nor have to worry about them.
About Eat Stop Eat
Brad does not offer seventeen free bonuses or ‘special reports’ written by random authors you’ve never heard of before. Reason being – You don’t need any of this fluff. Eat Stop Eat will work for you, so he doesn’t need to entice you with a bunch of meaningless extra ‘perks’ or ‘empty promises’. Once you have read this book, I guarantee you will never pick up another nutrition or diet book ever again! Nor will you need to!
Eat Stop Eat is 16,400 words and 90 pages long – It is simple and concise and will probably only take you one evening to read.
The Eat Stop Eat method of using flexible intermittent fasting for weight loss is so completely uncomplicated that you can literally start the program the VERY MINUTE you finish reading this book.
About Brad Pilon
Brad has a unique background. He has an honors degree in nutrition. Instead of becoming a dietitian, he started working in the weight loss industry, right after university. Throughout his career, he was able to conduct multiple body composition tests on numerous athletes and top level bodybuilders and monitor them while they dieted and tried new experimental weight loss programs.
In fact, it was these experiments that ultimately led him to leave the industry and pursue graduate studies in human biology and nutritional sciences.
Many of the experiments he conducted had results that were VERY different from what he expected, and he soon realized that if he was to truly understand nutrition’s role in weight loss, then he would have to start from the very beginning and study what happens to the body when it goes without ANY food.
Believe it or not, Eat Stop Eat is actually all the research from the scientific reviews he completed in graduate school.
That’s right, Brad’s research was on ‘The Metabolic Effects of Short Periods of Fasting in Humans and its Potential Application in Weight Loss’, so in essence when you read Eat Stop Eat what you are really reading is an easy to read version of his graduate education! Aside from being nutrition professional, Brad is also an athlete. He has competed in (and won) amateur bodybuilding contests and power-lifting meets.
