Hi this is Beth. On this video I wanted to go a little bit more in depth to address any misconceptions about the program. I wan to tell you what a day in my life is like on Brad Pilon’s diet and how easy it is.
Most people thin that not eating for 24 hours, that your metabolism should slow down. What I want to say is that it doesn’t slow down. Brad Pilon in the book says a lot about this. From my own research, I found that the metabolism will slow after 72 hours after eating your last food item. A 24 hour fast is well within that limit.
One thing that had me worried before starting this program is that my blood sugar would go crazy. I know what it’s like to get really dizzy and light headed. Eat healthy before you start the fast and you’ll be fine. This is not something I experienced on the Eat Stop Eat diet.
Working out while fasting is a great idea. It will do a lot for you if your body is working off the stored fuel which is fat. I find that I can work out at the end of the fast.
A day in my life on Eat Stop Eat is kind of normal looking. I stop eating after supper and sleep in on purpose. If I sleep in, then I don’t have time for breakfast. I don’t bring a snack for work, so no opportunity for a morning snack. For lunch, I make sure I have errands to do. In the afternoon you can have coffee, tea or diet soda. What I find really helpful is that you can have calorie free gum.
