Are you fasting today?

You'll never guess what happened to me this week.

I was at a lunch meeting, just finishing my coffee when someone came up to my table to tell me that she had just started Eat Stop Eat.

To be honest, it was a little weird to be approached in public, but it was an awesome feeling to be able to actually see her excitement. And, it was an even better feeling knowing that she was going to see results!

My goal is to make the question "Are you fasting today?" as common as "Did you want to go eat?". If this happens, it means people are finally losing weight without the pain of constantly dieting. Without having to cut carbs for months on end, and without the pain of taking a week off of dieting only to watch the pounds practically jump back onto their bodies.

So with New Year's fast approaching, it's time for you to help spread the word. If you have been practising Eat Stop Eat, and have seen great results, it's time to let your friends in on your little secret (it's the holiday season, so don't be greedy and keep it all to yourself!)

This holiday season you can do your part to stop the needless diet suffering that always happens this time of year.

Eat Stop Eat, help spread the word

I haven't told anyone that I'm fasting. I don't want to hear their comments on why I shouldn't or how harmful it is. I love not counting macronutrients or pre-packaging my food to be eaten every 2-3 hours, regardless of where I might be. I would rather do this for a couple of months and journal my progress and then tell people how I have achieved the loss. I have been a serial dieter for the past 8 years and this time feels different and completely doable.

Hi Sam,

I know how you feel. I was experimenting with Eat Stop Eat for 6 months before I openly discussed it with anybody.

That being said, my dream is for it to be accepted as the easy and flexible way of eating that it is.

In my opinion there is nothing fringe nor fanatical about taking brief breaks from eating.

I am 45 minutes from finishing my 1st fast for this week and while I'm hungry it's not overwhelming. I did 1.5 hrs of Judo last night and did Beginner Circuit #2 this am fasted. I like not being a slave to food. Do I need to worry about whether or not I'm getting enough protein or is 50grams a day ok? I haven't felt the need to obsess over what I'm actually eating, but I know I'm not eating near the amount of protein that I was prior to starting ESE. I used to supplement with protein powder and I haven't on ESE.

Hi Sam,

I'm glad to hear your first fast went well.

I think that if you search through my blog you'll see a number of posts on protein.

basically my view is that protein is good, but you don't need massive amounts of the stuff.

From the research I've seen, I don't think anybody needs more than 0.7 grams per pound bodyweight, as even guys on steroids managed to grow very well on about 120 grams of protein per day.

Depending your your height and weight, you may want to experiment with bumping it up a litle bit (an extra 10-15 grams)just to see how it makes you feel, but really, it all comes down to what you are comfortable and happy with eating.

No one should have to obsess over food.

Hope this helps,
