Some Background Info On Myself
My name is Kate Kirin and I'm a 26 year old from Los Angeles, CA. I'm 6 foot 2 inches and when I started this program on May 1, 2016, I weighed in at a staggering 214 pounds. Yep, that's pretty big and it showed. As of the writing of this article on June 25, 2016, I currently weigh in at 181 pounds. That is a weight loss of more than 30 pounds. So now that you know a little bit of background on me and my stats, let's get to the program itself.
Brad Pilon's Eat Stop Eat
This weight loss program is very different from the normal weight loss diet program that has been popular for a while now. In fact, some might say that the Eat Stop Eat method is somewhat controversial. This is mainly because the program does not follow the usual guidelines for weight loss.
Brad's program utilizes a weight loss method known as intermittent fasting.
Simply put, you go through short periods of not eating. Now this is very different from what the diet industry has been telling people to do to lose weight. They say that you need to eat more in order to lose weight. Which if you think about it, sounds kind of crazy don't you think. I mean, how are you going to lose any weight when your eating more and more food.
It takes a calorie deficit of 3,500 calories to lose just 1 pound of body fat. Let me tell you, your not going to get anywhere using the conventional wisdom of eat more to lose more. This was a huge problem for me in the past when I tried to lose weight before on other programs. I would lose like 5 or 6 pounds and then end up over eating and losing my weight loss and in some cases, gaining back more than I'd lost.
Eat Stop Eat Pros
This program for me just works. Plain and simple. It's a simple bare bones approach to weight loss. It does not require you to eat 6 times a day or spend tons of time planning, or preparing meals. It also does not require that you count or weigh your food for calories. This was a big plus for me because I've got enough to due to keep me busy rather than spending all day cooking and eating.
It is extremely flexible and will work with your current nutrition plan. So basically you can just eat how you are now. In my opinion, you could just follow the information about how to perform the intermittent fast and still lose weight without exercise. However, for the best results I recommend that you incorporate some physical activity. That's what I did and it has worked like a charm.
Eat Stop Eat Cons
Brad recommends that you workout for best results. Well, I don't think this is a con but some people just hate working out. If that's you, sorry. Just try to get some physical activity in everyday. It's good for you, trust me.
This program is unfortunately not geared towards those with health problems. It's not recommended for those with diabetes or other medical conditions. Brad says this because he has only tried it on healthy people in tests and has not done any extensive testing on people with medical conditions.
The Bottom Line
So my bottom line for the Eat Stop Eat diet program by Brad Pilon is that it works. I've used this program and have lost 30 pounds of fat in just 6 weeks. I've only reached my half way point and am shooting for another 25 pounds weight loss. So I definitely see myself achieving my weight loss goals with this program. Also, I find the program extremely easy to follow without feeling hungry or starved. I think a lot of people are going to find this program very beneficial.
