Intermittent fasting (EatStopEat) trial

Hi everyone!

For the next 2 weeks I will try out Brad Pilon’s IF:

I was thinking that Mondays and Thursdays are the best days to do this: busy at work (day goes faster) and intensive gym workouts.

But, as I have a dinner party with friends on Monday, I think I will fast tomorrow Sunday 17th June. That means I will have my last meal tonight (Saturday) and resume eating on Monday evening.

Coffee and chewing gum are allowed, just like in the Health Divas fasting regime. Yeiiiii!!

Has anyone tried this?! Any tips?!

I've read his book - I think its an awesome plan! I've tried it before with some variances of my own.

When he suggests a 24 hour fast - its normally from the prior night (say around 7pm) to the next following night (8pm). So you never go an entire day without eating. This, to me, is more IF than an actual fast.

When I did it - I actually skipped an entire day of eating - and ended the fast the following day (almost 48 hours later). It worked very well - but I also kept my eating within an 5 hr feeding window when I ate.

To me, all the scheduling and timing is too overwhelming. But its bonus is the flexibility and ability to maintain it as a lifestlye.

I like to read it when Im water fasting for motivation - he explains the science behind it all well.
