I am about finished reading an interesting e-book called Eat, Stop, Eat. Has anyone else read it? If so what are your thoughts? It seems very interesting to me. All diets and supplements are driven by $$. So the idea of a 24 hour fast 1-2 times per week is not talked about because there is no product to sell! Many of the details go against common concepts being taught. But some of them make good sense.

Did you ever get any reply's on this? I too have read about this fasting being real good for you and also had a friend who did it and lost a ton of weight. I would like to try but need someone to do with me so I know what to expect.
Please let me know what you found out

It works, I have done the program as Brad Pilon has outlined off and on for about six months. It is effective and does raise energy levels and concentration during the fast.

Old thread, but there's lots of information about intermittent fasting online, check out leangains.com, marksdailyapple.com, and theleansaloon.com. These take a slightly different approach of something more like a 16 hr fast and 8 hr eating window, rather than the full 24 hours of Eat Stop Eat, but its the same principle.

It is somewhat unconventional but I'm a big fan of the approach.

I am using both approaches. During the normal days I skip breakfast, lunch at 2pm, snack at 4pm and dinner at 9pm. It makes a 16 - 17 fasting window. Then, twice a week I make my 24 hour fast. In this way I lost 6 pounds in 10 days after a 30 day paleo diet, where I reached a plateau after losing 8 pounds.

Leangains combined with paleo dieting can give some fantastic benefits. The science behind leangains is amazing and Martin goes out of his way to give some well research articles. I've tried both eat stop eat and then the 16 hours fat 8 hour food window and can say the second is great for building muscle while remaining lean. I also found eat stop eat quite unenjoyable as I usually eat circa 4k kcal a day!

"The Warrior Diet" by Ori Hofmekler also follows fasting - loosely - eat light or not at all during the day then feast at night with the family(there's more to it, that is a nutshell summation) - fasting is valid in ways that we cannot wrap our minds around because we have been sold so many ideas (always to do with selling a product, be it cereal, protein powders, eat every 2-3 hours, eat your body weight in grams of protein...) that our bodies have no idea how to regulate themselves. Feeling hungry, gaining clarity through fasting ... and resetting leptin levels, insulin levels, etc. come from IF ... and / or eating whole foods in a natural way and even seasonally. I think there is merit to fasting ... randomly or regularly ... if just skipping one or two meals a day, and no snacking. But insure the food, when you eat, is quality whole foods ... good thread.

I've read Eat, Stop, Eat & The Warrior Diet. I've also browsed leangains.com a bit. All of these plans work in much the same way most other diets work... they decrease the amount of calories you consume. It works if you can stick to it, but it's not for everyone. It's especially dangerous for people with past anorexic or binge habits. There have been some medical studies showing that short term fasting (like in the diet plans mentioned) can have some benefits for health as well. In the end (as with all diets) it comes down to whether or not you can stick to it forever.

I really liked leangains.com myself.... the idea of intermittent fasting really appealed to me after so much of the "4-5 small meals a day" hype and all the planning and thought that goes into figuring out what you are going to eat for all those meals and making sure you have the right food available to you all the time. It has taken sooo much stress out of it for me, I dont stick to a specific plan, but eat a light lunch and a big dinner every day and like it so much better than eating a million times a day.
