A book by name Eat Stop Eat advocating revolutionary ideas for losing weight has been written by Brad Pilon, who is a nutritionist. This program is entirely different from all the programs on losing weight, commonly in practice now. The present day programs concentrate on calorie reduction and avoidance of carb and fatty foods.
Many people have difficulty in following these programs, not only because they are complicated but require easting foods that you may not like. No one also likes suggestions for preparing complicated meals and frequent eating every day. Pilon’s book does not contain any of these elements.
The diet suggested is a regimen of flexible fasting intermittently and training to get strength with the muscles all over your body. No counting of calories or complicated meals in Pilon’s program. Get that out of your mind now. The day of fasting can be picked depending on your weekly schedule. A lot of flexibility is just one plus.
There is a mistaken feeling that fasting results in slowing down of the metabolism of the body. It is true in the case of fasting on a long term basis.
But, in this case the fasting is short term with just a day in a week for that purpose. This has proved effective in the weight loss program.
You can be rest assured that there is no slow down in metabolism fasting for short periods. In fact fasting and exercise have been found to be beneficial in losing weight. When fasting is on, drinking plenty of water, black coffee and other drinks with low calories are suggested to be taken.
Strength training is very important aspect contained in the book. Following the steps outlined in the program properly is very important. Exercising is included as one of the most important items. Simple fasting without bothering too many exercising is not going to be of much use to you.
