What is Eat Stop Eat intermittent fasting?
The Eat Stop Eat intermittent fasting method is where you fast for 24 hours once or twice per week. This method of fasting is aimed at those who want to lose fat and get lean without dieting or changing what they eat.
This fasting method was created by Brad Pilon. It is based on the principle that most people struggle to lose weight in the long term because it’s very hard to change the way we eat. Since traditional diets focus on changing the way we eat, it sets people up for failure. With the Eat Stop Eat lifestyle, you fast so can enjoy the foods you love guilt-free.
During the fast, you can drink the following liquids:
- Black Coffee
- Black Tea
- Herbal and green teas
- Diet Soda (in moderation)
- Sparkling Water
- Or any drink that is zero calories.
During your non-fasting days, Brad Pilon recommends that you follow these guidelines:
- Eat the foods you enjoy, but eat less of them.
- Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices.
- Eat Real Foods versus processed foods
- Avoid flavoring your food with salt and sugar
- Don’t stress about what you eat.
Regarding workouts, Brad Pilon recommends that the focus of your exercise should be to build or maintain muscle (while allowing your diet to help you lose weight).
