Easy Fat Loss Diet
My daughter loves books. She loves to be read to and she loves to flip through books.
Whenever she wants either Andrea or I to read to her, she’ll grab a book walk over to you, slam it in your lap and say “Read.” Always very cute, but sometimes those books are kind of heavy and don’t feel very good
getting slammed in your lap.
She has a couple favorites, usually involving Dora the Explorer or some potty training book (weird that she enjoys these), and I think I’ve memorized them all by now.
I’ve got a couple books like that too. Granted, I don’t force someone to read them to me, I can do that all by myself thank you very much. : )
One of those books is Eat Stop Eat by Brad Pilon.
It’s a very quick read, but the science of the book always interests me because it goes against everything that we have been taught about nutrition and how to eat to lose fat.
Brad’s a really cool guy and when I say he’s a nutrition expert, that’s no exaggeration. The guy loves to learn everything he possibly can about nutrition, dieting, etc. and has been doing it for many years. When I have a nutrition question, he’s one of the first people I turn to.
He actually got his start working for one of the world’s largest supplement companies and knows everything there is to know about those companies and their dirty little tricks.
Anyway, last year, when I first met Brad, many people were dubbing his new book, called Eat Stop Eat, “The easiest diet in the world.”
That’s a pretty bold statement if you ask me, but it’s true.
Every time I read his book and look at the results I have had while following his “anti-diet”, I am amazed that something so simple works so amazingly well.
After talking with Brad a bit, I decided to give his diet a try for a few months. I knew I had to give it a few months to really judge whether or not it worked.
Brad’s “anti-diet” revolves around intermittent fasting.
All that means is that for a period of 24 hours, once a week, you don’t eat.
You can drink anything that’s calorie-free, but no food and no drinks that have any calories to them for 24 hours. So water, some teas, etc. are OK.
That’s because it is. And that’s all the “diet” is.
Brad says that far too many people in today’s society are obsessive compulsive about eating and dieting. We get too caught up in what to eat, when to eat it, how many meals a day we’re supposed to eat, etc. and then we get all bent out of shape and freaked out when we slip up and have a piece of cake.
Whenever you talk about nutrition, diets, etc. people get all hyped up and it’s really doing our health and waist size a lot of harm.
Brad’s Eat Stop Eat program cuts through all that confusion and lets you live life and enjoy your favorite foods.
To check out Eat Stop Eat and learn all you need to know go to:
I’ll let his book convince you, but here’s my experience, and results, with Eat Stop Eat over the past few months.
The first time I tried it, I failed. That’s great, isn’t it? The first time I tried this awesome new “anti-diet”, I
failed. Oh well, I’m human.
I tried to go from breakfast to breakfast for my fast and I failed at around 2pm.
That was my first mistake.
The next week I decided to go from dinner Sunday night to dinner Monday night.
So I ate dinner with my wife’s family at 5:30pm Sunday night and that was the last time I ate anything until the same time Monday night.
Don’t get me wrong, it was tough that first time, but there was something liberating about it.
I didn’t have to plan out my breakfast, lunch or snacks. Anytime I felt hunger, I just had some water.
That is very important if you’re going to do this “anti-diet” yourself. You need to drink lots of water throughout your fast.
I continued following this same schedule, eating dinner Sunday night, then not eating again until Monday night, for 3 months without fail and it got easier every single week until it just became routine.
It just got to be part of my life.
Anytime I got a little hungry on those Mondays, I’d just drink some water and focus on whatever it was I was doing.
The best part of all was that I didn’t have any of the side-effects I thought I would have by not eating.
Usually if I skip a meal, I get really cranky and irritable.
That didn’t happen on my fasting days. In fact, I felt fantastic!
I was also worried about how my workouts would be.
I’m a guy and I like to lift heavy things. What can I say, I have an ego to protect.
I thought that my workouts would suffer on my fasting days, but they didn’t.
I actually figured out that I felt better if I did a bodyweight workout on my fasting days rather than one of my weight training workouts.
But you want to know the best part?
I got to cheat a little more throughout the week than I was used to.
If I wanted to have a piece of cake after dinner, I did and didn’t worry about it.
If I wanted to have a few cocktails with my dinner, I did and didn’t worry about it.
I got to enjoy my favorite foods a little more than I was used to because I was following Brad’s “anti-diet”.
That doesn’t mean you can stuff your face 6 days a week and then not eat once a week and expect to lose fat. That just won’t happen.
What it does mean, though, is that you can “live a little” more while following this plan and it’s AWESOME!
Brad himself routinely talks about eating his favorite foods or stopping by a bakery and buying some fresh treat for he and his daughter…and he’s a nutrition expert.
So I followed this plan for a few months, didn’t freak out when I ate treats, and you want to know what my results were?
In those 3 months I lost 3 inches off my waist and got my waist size down to the smallest it’s been since high school, which was 10 years ago…
…and I weighed 30 pounds less in high school than I do now.
I only lost around 5 pounds off the scale, but the amount of fat I lost was amazing, and it all came from my stomach.
I was floored when I realized the results.
I didn’t change my eating habits other than following Brad’s Eat Stop Eat program and there wasn’t anything special about my workout program and I saw amazing results.
Plus I felt better than I had in months.
If you’ve ever been confused by diets, diet books, how to eat, when to eat, etc. you really should check out Brad’s Eat Stop Eat program.
It couldn’t be easier to follow because there’s nothing to think about, no planning to do, no strange foods, no special foods, no foods that are off limits, no foods you have to eat…none of that weird “fake science” that the typical diet books are filled with.
