  • Eat Stop Eat???

    I just read about this book on Intermittent Fasting called "Eat Stop Eat".

    Has anybody read it or know anything about it? One thing I noticed on the website was that, if you IF, you can eat anything you want. It says "there are no bad foods". It says it is okay to eat sugar, pizza, cake, cookies, etc.

    That seems a little off to me...

    Yeah, that is BS. IF'ing does not make up for eating junk.

      sounds like a cop-out book to make people feel better about being addicted to toxic substances. its like "oh its ok to have heroin once in a while...you know...as long as its in moderation."

        The author is a fan of paleo eating, but he sells more ebooks by telling people to eat what they want. I'm a believer in the concepts of IFing, but all the information ESE is selling can be found for free and without sales gimmicks that encourage people to eat crap if they want. I think we can all agree that is more doomed to fail than eliminating bad food and not IFing. Both is probably best.

          If i heard i could eat more of what i wanted, i think id be more inclined to buy that book as well. IF+primal=Beast

If my regimen leads to my death, be it in six days or six months...I will die fullfiled. The outcome is irrelavent so long as i steer towards my fate. If death is to be my prize, i welcome it with open arms."

            Well, if your only goal is to lose weight, which is probably true of most people buying diet books, I think most people COULD eat whatever junk they want and still lose weight with that sort of IFing. But I think we're different in that we're hoping to be healthy, too. =]

                Mark's protocols at Lean gains/Lyle's protocols are the best IF/modified IF programs I've seen. Here's mark's site:

                    I read "Eat Stop Eat" and got a lot out of it. Just because the author isn't as concerned with foods being "paleo" does not mean his work should be discounted. His program is a pretty good way to create a sustained caloric deficit without going batty.

                    Bottom line, in my opinion, is Eat Stop Eat combined with a paleo diet = kick a**.

                        I looked extensively at both of these blogs, but I could not find anything that would be of help to a fat, middle aged woman. It seems like they are both geared toward professional body builders.

                          eating primally means being able to IF with out feeling the intense pains/withdraws of hunger. I dont know how many people who buy this book and IF, and continue to eat a toxic diet, will end up sticking with it, due to the shock the IF will cause to a body that is used to having carbs/sugar etc. I refuse to believe that the IF would be a pleasant experience after a diet of pizza and ice cream.

                              I can tell you that the majority of viewers of both those blogs are not professional bodybuilders...

                              Mark from leangains has some amazing IF theories which are only put in stone with his client testimonial pictures. I think they help everyone, hell they are designed to help everyone.

                              Lyle's info is more informational, but still applicable. His weekly posts deal with more specific issues, but the books are where all the info is at. The guide to flexible dieting is most definitely not for professional bodybuilders.

                              Either way, you just need to do what works best for you. I can say "x" program is the best, but in the end with any program you will have to individualize it. Good luck.
