The truth About “Eat Stop Eat”

Before I continue with the Eat Stop Eat review…

I’ve trialled a lot of fat-loss techniques in my time, and I’ve gotta tell you – a lot of them suck. They all promise the world but never truly give you the results that they claim to.

So is Eat Stop Eat the be-all and end-all of dieting methods? It is pretty amaze-balls, but not without it’s flaws… read on.

Scientific Research Proves That Eat Stop Eat Will Help You Lose Weight, and Get Rid of Stubborn Body Fat – All While Preserving your Metabolism and Without Making You Lose Lean Muscle.

A quick overview of Eat Stop Eat

Brad Pilon's Eat Stop Eat
The product is basically Brad’s $10k education summed up into a nice digestible e-book (He did a research paper called “The Metabolic Effects of Short Periods of Fasting in humans and its Potential Application in Weight Loss.”)

Brad’s program outlines the fact that you only need to fast 1-2 times per week to see some serious weight-loss results:

Brad’s findings were eye-opening…Not only did people lose weight, they didn’t lose an ounce of muscle and their metabolism improved. In addition to that, people experienced an increase in HGH (their natural fat burning hormone).

First Impressions

I take most dieting books with a pinch of salt – and with Eat Stop Eat, I was no different. What surprised, however, was the fact that Brad’s results from his pictures were backed up with scientific research which made total sense.

You see, I’m all about real-world results more so than what’s written down on paper with a bunch of lab mice. That’s where Brad’s testimonials played a big factor in me wanting to give it a go myself. Surely, so many people can’t be wrong?

The book explains what he found to be the most flexible yet effective way to eat and stay lean year round.

So does Eat Stop Eat work?

I’d been heavily involved with Rusty Moore’s Visual Impact program, and had gained a considerable amount of muscle. I was now looking to go to the ‘next level’ in terms of fat-loss.

So I commenced the diet and within the first 2 weeks, I had dropped around 2-3 pounds of abdominal fat.

Eat Stop Eat is working for pretty much everyone who is following it. The one or two fasts per week increase HGH as promised and create a weekly calorie deficit. Because of this, people are getting fantastic results.

I’ll be keen to see how I’d look 12 months down the track!

Note: Brad has been eating this way for over 12 months and judging by his recent pictures, is pretty darn lean.

Who would benefit from the program?

It’s pretty much good for ANYONE looking to shed some body fat regardless of their current level. It’s also great for both MEN and WOMEN (my fiancee even enjoyed the program which surprised me).

If you’re sick of fad-diets and the myriad of BS that’s currently out there, you’ll be surprised at how well this technique works.

Now for the down-sides…

– It can be difficult to get started. The first few days of the diet can be really testing.
– This program won’t have you shedding 5 pounds every single week (ones that claim to do that won’t benefit you long term and will cause the dreaded yo-yo effect).
– The first few times you go without food duirng the day, you will get a little bit hungry. This takes a few times through to get used to.
I HATE these anyway, but if you like detailed meal plans telling you exactly what to eat and when, this may not be for you.

In Summary

In the end, would I recommend Eat Stop Eat as a program for losing weight? I certainly would. A little bit of self-discipline can go a long way. If you’re tired of the same old methods being flogged by every man and his dog in the fitness industry, this ‘alternative’ perspective is refreshing and may just be what the doctor ordered in terms of getting your physique to where you want it to be.
