Brad confronts all the myths against fasting. He shows the health benefits of fasting, which are more than just fat loss. He gives the Eat Stop Eat prescription, which is simply one or two 24-hour fasts per week. He talks about shorter fasts and longer fasts and why 24-hours is the best choice in his opinion. He talks about insulin and the fasted vs fed state, which was sort of eye-opening for me. There is a Q & A at the end which should answer most people's questions.
All in all, this book is ground zero for people interested in intermittent fasting. IF is becoming part of the rebel scientific community's answer to the now failed government prescription for weight loss (high-carb, low fat, three meals a day plus "healthy" snacks). As I noted in my title, this book was one of the books that likely started the tide turning toward IF as a preferred way to lose weight (Another was the Warrior Diet). Homage is given to Brad Pilon's work by Jason Fung in his book, The Obesity Code. As one reviewer said, this simple little book was a game changer. It's too bad that this did not get the popularity it deserves.
My own success is that I have had a ton of difficulty losing fat, but after trying IF thanks in no small part to this book - the weight comes off rather easily and painlessly once I got used to a 24-hour fast. What fat loss used to take me a week of hunger and lifting and cardio now simply takes me 24-hours of self-control a day or two per week. But, even if I decide to indulge, I'm never more than a couple days away from a fast that will counter it.
I would also suggest reading works by Jason Fung and Gary Taubes. They both encourage either low-carb / keto diets. Low carb combined with IF seems to help me with dietary compliance since I'm fuller due to my food choices.
4/29/18 Rediscovering my "normal" on eating days is providing to be more difficult than anticipated. For so long I've been guided by a diet program of some kind or another, that I don't know really what I want to eat. I keep the words "eat a variety and eat responsibly" in my mind, but other than that I feel like a little kid in Toy-R-Us, so many choices, it's very freeing to have so many options.
It's a short read but it definitely helped answer some of the questions I had about intermittent fasting. I would recommend this book.
