How much weight will I lose with Eat Stop Eat?

I often get asked "How much weight will I lose with Eat Stop Eat?"

For the record, I answer this question in the FAQ's at the end of Eat Stop Eat, however it is an important question that I am also going to answer on this blog...

With the Eat Stop Eat lifestyle, you should be able to lose weight at a rate of 1-2 pounds per week.

I know there are lots of reports of people losing 3, 4 even 7 pounds a week with Eat Stop Eat, but these are people are anomalies...

Even when people lose 3-4 pounds per week for the first couple of weeks, this is mostly inflammation and excess water weight disappearing (and obviously some fat mass as well).

And while some people do see very impressive results over the first month or two, it is important to remember that Eat Stop Eat is not a starvation diet nor is it a crash diet.

Think long term sustainability, look for trends in your weight (remember it fluctuates by as much as 2-3 pounds day to day) and strive for long term weight loss success!

Eat Stop Eat was designed to be a lifestyle of sustainable weight loss,
