Eat Stop Eat vs The Warrior Diet

July 30, 2009

I’ve been getting a ton of questions about Eat Stop Eat and The Warrior Diet and which is better. I’ve been using intermittent fasting steadily for 2-3 years (can’t remember exactly when I started). I began with The Warrior Diet and it worked to a certain extent, but something didn’t quite “feel” right. While I think The Warrior Diet was a groundbreaking book and it was the first book to bring intermittent fasting to the masses, I believe Eat Stop Eat is a more effective and healthy way to drop body fat. In this post, I will give you my experiences with both methods and explain crucial differences between these two ways of eating.

My One Meal Per Day Warrior Diet Post Has 1,371 Comments!

Back in June of 2007, I wrote a post called Lose Body Fat By Eating One Meal Per Day. It was basically outlining The Warrior Diet and explaining to people that they could lose weight without having to eat 6 meals per day. Little did I know that this post would become so popular! I rarely see blogs with over 300 comments on a single post, let alone 1,300! Reading and responding to the comments on this post, I found many others who lost body fat following The Warrior Diet. I had been experimenting with it on and off up until that point…but June 2007 is when I fully adopted The Warrior Diet lifestyle.

A Basic Outline of The Warrior Diet

The Warrior Diet is a method of eating where you aim to eat one big meal per day at night. For the most part you fast during the day. On some days you can eat a bit of fruit, but for maximum effect you fast until dinner whenever possible. Once you eat, you have a 3-4 hour window to eat until you are full. You are suppose to listen to your body and eat until you are satisfied instead of aiming for a specific calorie range.

Why the Warrior Diet is Effective

The Warrior Diet works well, because while you are fasting your body releases HGH and also is much more likely to use fat for fuel. Since you consume your daily calories in one big meal, you can eat higher calorie foods while still creating a calorie deficit for weight loss. Countless people have done well following this diet, after being unable to lose fat following the “eat every few hours approach”. The Warrior Diet is a big step in the right direction.

[I apologize ahead of time for this picture. It is by far the least “warrior like” picture ever and makes me laugh! Your testosterone probably dropped a little just by looking at this. Even the couch is pink. Okay, sorry about that…back to being a Warrior!]

My First Big Mistake With The Warrior Diet

The biggest mistake I made when following The Warrior Diet, was to use it as an excuse to be able to eat junky food while still being able to stay lean. I figured if I had 2,200-2,500 to work with in one meal…I could regularly eat pizza, nachos, large plates of pasta, etc. The problem was that I underestimated the calories and would go way over this mark. Also, I was eating unhealthy foods on a consistent basis.

I Switched to Healthy Foods, But Still Faced Challenges

After putting on a little bit of body fat, I decided it was time to clean up my diet. Here was the big problem…my appetite was massive at night and I was able to fit a lot of food in my stomach. Eating one BIG meal was giving me the capacity to eat bigger and bigger meals (my stomach was expanding a bit). Even if the food was healthy I tended to eat everything in excess. I would go to bed with a bloated stomach and wake up feeling a little groggy. I didn’t do well with all of this food in my stomach.

Eating Like This Everyday Began to Feel Unnatural to Me

Now the great thing about The Warrior Diet is that you do have the flexibility to do eat like this just a few times per week or every day. The problem is that since those one meal days were focused on one big meal, my appetite was insane when I did eat. I just had a tough time “putting on the brakes” when I ate. Also, I couldn’t get quite as lean as I was accustomed to being, by eating this way. I have a feeling it was due to the fact that there was food in my stomach when I went to sleep. This probably doesn’t affect people with 20+ pounds to lose, but when you want to get extra lean…this does make a difference.

After One Solid Year of Eating Like This I Found Eat Stop Eat

At first glance Eat Stop Eat seemed like the same thing as The Warrior Diet. Although they both are forms of intermittent fasting, Eat Stop Eat is quite a bit different than the Warrior Diet. The differences weren’t obvious until I read the course. This little post doesn’t do the course justice, but I’ll do my best to point out a few key differences.

A Video of Brad Pilon – Creator of Eat Stop Eat


[I just wanted to throw in a video to break up the long post. This is just a sample of one of Brad Pilon’s videos. I have always recommended going into a workout in a fasted state and Brad Pilon shows the scientific reasoning behind this. He has a bunch of great videos for free over on Youtube: Brad’s Youtube Channel.]

With Eat Stop Eat You Fast Until Dinner 1-2 Times Per Week

The good thing about Eat Stop Eat is that you only fast 1-2 times per week. This makes it an easier diet to follow in my opinion. The rest of the time you eat naturally, which for most people means 3-4 healthy meals per day. Brad doesn’t want people to get food obsession and not enjoy the occasional pizza or other high calorie food, but if fat loss is your goal then you will want to limit this type of food. I like to eat mainly a paleo diet when possible…things like stir fry, salads, etc. The idea behind Eat Stop Eat is that it should be an easy to follow for the long term.

With Eat Stop Eat, You Never Purposely Eat a Big Meal

This is where most people go wrong with Eat Stop Eat: People assume that they eat one large meal like The Warrior Diet, but just do it twice per week. This is not the way Eat Stop Eat was meant to be followed. With Eat Stop Eat, you eat a regular size dinner (600-1,200 calorie range…a rough estimate). So 1-2 days per week, you are having a much lower calorie day than normal. So in essence this reduces you calorie intake by 10-20% each week.

The Reason You Can’t Do an Eat Stop Eat Fast Every Day

Eat Stop Eat works because your body can easily handle a low calorie day every once in a while, without negatively affecting your metabolism. Try to do this every day and within 2-3 weeks bad things will happen. The Warrior Diet is different, you are getting your daily calories all in one meal. With Eat Stop Eat, you are striving for 1-2 low calorie days. Too many low calorie days in a row are what cause eating disorders. Fasting 1-2 times per week improves health. Fasting like this every day is not good for you at all.

My Verdict After a Solid Year Following Both Methods…

I have been able to get leaner following Eat Stop Eat. This isn’t necessarily a flaw with The Warrior Diet, I just found that eating one big meal increased my capacity to eat bigger meals. Since I try to avoid big meals at night, I never go to bed with a bunch of food in my stomach. I have been able to get as lean as I’m accustomed to being. Tip: I used to use the fasting days as a way to get away with eating more calories at night. You will get better results if you make these strict, low calorie days. This will create that nice weekly calorie deficit.

Summary: This is just my experience with The Warrior Diet and Eat Stop Eat. Many people have done well following The Warrior Diet and continue to lose weight. Also, this post doesn’t take place of either course. It is impossible to have full understanding of either method from just a few short posts. Hope my explanation cleared up any confusion regarding the 2 approaches to eating!

The Warrior Diet sounds very very effective I must say! Dieting is so flexible thing.

lehdet June 8, 2011 at 11:50 am

You should never just diet but change the way you eat every day. If you always have diet you never eat healthy. Just set your target weight and eat so that you weight will get to that target and then keep it there. That’s how you will be in great shape and feel healthy everyday without any diets.

Elliot Travers June 27, 2011 at 3:12 pm

the diet i just did nearly killed me it was so good. i reccomend it to everyone. i did a raw vegan diet

That;s so funny but Some days you can eat a small fruit, but the biggest impact on you in a hurry, before dinner, when possible.

I’ve tried Eat Stop Eat but find I really need to be in the zone to be able to fast for any period of time. I find if I’m tired or stressed then the whole thing seems to go out of the window, Must check out the warrior diet, I’m unfamiliar with it to be honest. Thanks Rusty

Mike July 26, 2011 at 12:26 pm

Hi Rusty,

By doing 1 meal diets, such as that of eat stop eat. Won’t you have gastric ulcers or peptic ulcers?

Thanks

Surely to gain the most amount of weight you need to be on a diet that involves getting into ketosis then staying in it.

Is this just another fad diet? How much can you really lose and how quickly?

Daniel November 26, 2011 at 11:27 am

To everyone asking about whether or not these are “fad” diets, the answer is “No.”. There are a few real diet techniques out there(that work if you do them right) and I will name them for you: IF (Intermittent Fasting), Carb Cycling and Keto. On everything still, it’s related to how many calories you take IN and how many calories you BURN. The number isn’t necessarily 2,000kcal per day if you are sedentary, a lot of males should shoot for 1,500-1,700. There are BMR calculators and equations you can look up to see how much you many calories(with percentage from carb, fats, proteins) you should be eating to achieve a desires goal.

Now, it’s important to note that your body will react hormonally different to each one of these diet techniques, so it’s important to try each of them to find which one works for you to achieve a desired goal. Personally, I’m just now starting the Warrior Diet to try and get below 10% body fat from 12%, but I’ve had good success with a simple calorie deficit and carb cycling.

Mark Thomas December 13, 2011 at 7:02 am

Hi Rusty,

Would you say that most of what the Warrior Diet teaches is correct, but like you said… it is a tougher diet to follow when compared to Eat Stop Eat?

Hello everybody,
I tried the warrior diet and the eat stop eat diet. What they teatch you and let you eat bought work great. But if you ask me the eat stop eat diet is the better one because it’s easy to hold on to.

How are you all?
I tested the Warrior diet and it worked really great for me!!
I recommend it to everybody i know. I lost 17pounds.
So really it’s worth your while.

James February 9, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I have always thought it was bad to eat large meals at night.
I usually try to have a bigger breakfast, big lunch and small dinner(salad)
I wonder if people have experimented with having their big meal in the morning instead of at night?

CJxfit February 24, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Looks like this thread is still alive. I just hope Rusty still is!? I haven’t seen a reply in a while. 🙂 I have read thru all of the posts. Lots of information and good questions in just reading what everyone else has experienced. I am not claiming to be an expert in any way, but I have dabbled with IF for at least a couple years now I’d say and there really are TOO many variables which can make or break any of them. Just as with exercise. I read ESE a while back, but admittedly have not ever put that one into practice. Although I cannot see why it would not be a good choice. I also read Ori’s WD book a while ago as well. I really like Martin Berkhans LeanGains protocol. I have been using that for a bulk period (I know that sounds counter-intuitive, but not everyone necessarily needs or wants to LOSE weight). I am now using a Fast-5/WD approach as a bit of a ‘cut’ phase. I will probably only use it for 1, maybe 2 weeks max, and then go back to LG for a few weeks and will attempt alternating back and forth. (4 weeks LG, 1-2 Weeks WD) as I really do try to keep my intake high while on LG (16-hour fast, 8-hour feeding window) and it does become difficult. SO the WD/Fast-5, 19-20 hour fasts are a bit of welcomed ‘break’. I DO still TRY to keep intakes up, but it is basically impossible for me to do so, so a natural, couple pound weight loss is expected. Then back to LG. I think what a lot of folks are missing is that IF does not necessarily mean you absolutely HAVE to eat 1-meal, no matter what method you choose. They all have a re-feed ‘window’. so you can break a fast with a 500-1000c lighter meal, and a few hours later go for your bigger, more satiating meal. All of this contingent on what your goals are of course. Just trying to point out you do have time to eat. It doesn’t have to all go down at once. Also wanted to reply to ‘Mike-July 26 2011’ post about ‘the shakes’ If he is still tuned in. Again, not an expert, but I believe this can be a normal occurrence, especially when attempting to Fast for the 1st time and depending on the type of diet you are coming off of. It is likely Carb withdrawals. Sugar (esp. Fructose/HFCS etc.) can be very addicting, so it’s almost like kicking a drug habit. the shakes should subside as you become a bit more accustomed to the Fasting process. I came from an Ironman Tri (IE: Hi-Carb, calories galore) lifestyle and it was hard initially to switch over to a more paleo/Zone/Higher Protein and Fat diet. And throwing the IF experiment in was tough going at first. As I said, too many variables in regards to this to say which one is ‘the best’.
Best of Luck to all!

Kate March 1, 2012 at 11:06 am

Hey, so I found you blog through a list of the best 20 fitness blogs and I LOVE IT. I’m a women 5’3″, 110-112lbs, ~16% bodyfat (this is based off of tape measuring and probably messy caliper measurements) I’m pretty damn lean right now, I’ve got toning on my arms and a 4pack but I wanna look badass! Some women would be happy with figure but I’ve got aspirations to look exceptional. I want to get to about 14% body fat and lose around 2lbs of fat in general. I’ve been doing the leangains fasting approach (not really following the diet approach) with a 8/16 hours fast and doing fasted training (totally agree with you about fasted training). I train 6 days/week with a combonation of metabolic weight training and HIIT (in the form of Bodyrock if you know) for 45-60min. I’m on my 4th day of a keto diet, planning on doing it strict for 2 weeks before any refeeding. What I want to know is, should I try doing doing some ESE type fasting days on my non-workout day? Also, I eat around 1500 cal/day, should I go lower? I feel a little dissatisfied with 1200 cal/day but do you think adding in an ESE fast day once per week could help with that. You’ve got one bangin blog, love what I’ve read so far! Will absolute check out any ebook/book you put out!

Linda March 10, 2012 at 3:04 pm

What about fasting during the day and just eating one moderate-sized and healthy evening meal? Can a person just eat one healthy meal a day and be okay? Thanks.

dress shop March 12, 2012 at 9:10 pm

hi,
I have been on warrior diet for about 6 months now and its done wonders. I have lost around 10kgs so far. It was a difficult schedule to stick to when I had to fast all day and eat only in the evening but my body responded to it quickly and got adjusted to it. I have been feeling more energetic during the day and have managed to keep a tab on my weight. However, off late I have not been losing more weight even though I have been following the same diet plan. I was on a holiday for about 2 weeks and I was completely off the diet and after I resumed the diet again, so significant weight loss has been observed. Does this mean that my body has become “immune” to the warrior diet? Should I try something else now?
Thank you.

you raised a good point. i liked it. i think proper diet is very important for good health. thanks for sharing it.

Linda March 14, 2012 at 4:50 pm

Regarding my question two posts above – when I say eat only once a day, I mean eating nothing else at all – only one healthy meal a day and complete fasting the rest of the day. Thanks!

Hayley March 30, 2012 at 6:19 am

Yes, you can eat only one time a day and do a complete fast the rest of the day – I have learned that a lot of people do that with great results.

Dima April 2, 2012 at 10:56 am

I’m currently using a hybrid of ESE/WD

I eat once a day (at night within a 1-2h window) and fast for 36h once a week.
It seems to be working pretty well. (I’ve dropped 10lb in past 2 month), however my DL is now at 410lb, bench press at 270lb and weighted chinups @ 65lb. My weight is under 180lb btw. And I try to keep my daily intake (during workout days) under 1900kcal and non workout under 1000kcal.

I don’t think I’ll be ever go back to a “traditional” diet. Once you are free of worries what to stuff down your pie hole till late evening is extremely liberating.
Ability to skip the whole day is even more so…

Dima April 2, 2012 at 11:02 am

Well… it is much easier to adhere to a diet if you just “sleep” through the “stiking points”. Your body switches to fat burning mode while you are asleep. If you eat your big meal in the morning
1. You need time to prepare the QUALITY meal (I’d rather sleep! as bang for the buck, good sleep trumps the diet.)
2. Your gut is not awoken completely so you are pretty much stressing it with large meal.
3. You will crash badly after the large meal right at the time when you are supposed to be productive.

So any way you put it, large breakfast only adds stress and defeats the purpose.

Hayley April 4, 2012 at 8:42 pm

Dima, I agree so much with what you said about this way of eating being “liberating” – I really love it, too. I also like that we can eat socially and not have to restrict ourselves of things because of being on a certain diet. Lastly, we’ll probably get in trouble for this but I like your 36 hour weekly fast as well – I instinctively like to do that, too – I just feel better taking a bit of a longer food break once in a while. Thanks for your helpful info! =)

Robert King April 12, 2012 at 2:41 pm

@Dima

36 hour fast…WOWZA!

I’ve personally done plenty of 24-hour fasts, but I’ve never tried pushing it to 36 hours. Honestly, I don’t think it would be as hard as it sounds because as Hayley mentions above, you can sleep through about 16 hours of it.

These days I don’t really fast for 24 hours anymore, but instead do a daily ~16 hour one ala Martin Berkhan. Your 36 hour has me curious though, and I’m really tempted to try it to see how much of a difference it really is in comparison to a 24-hour fast.

vans kopen April 13, 2012 at 10:54 am

Well, personally I do not really believe in this sort of diet. Ive tried many of them, all kind. Some of them works, some of them less, or not at all. But what was common for the all diets I’ve tried – I did gain my weight back and couldn’t do anything about it. And then somebody advice me a dvd, from the site http://www.afvalmethodes.com The site is in Dutch, but Ive just click on the pic without even reading it. So Ive ordered and was really impressed. Losing weight doesn’t have to be hard, or frustrating, but it can be healthy, tasty and fun. And the most important, the weight got dropped AND STAYED that! That was really working. But thanks, I do recommend yours to some of my fellows. I think the warrior diet will work for them. So will come back here with update!

christine April 13, 2012 at 2:14 pm

I love this sight and would really like to see some answers to some of the questions that have been asked lately. ANYONE there??? I could learn a lot more if I knew some of these answers. I just bought Caleb Lee’s Superdiet book. Has anyone out there tried it. Seems like a mix of some of the diets on here. Getting married in about 3 months and need to lose a lot of weight (about 30 pounds) as I have gained a lot since I had a hysterectomy(no HRT meds) and aquiring three migh maintanance step-children. Anyone know how to lower Cortisol levels, is there a supplement that will do this? Is Caleb Lee’s Superdiet the same as double your gains? I can not find anything online about it, except the blogs done by caleb lee himself. Would like outside nonbiased results and opinions. Anyone??? It is intermittent fasting and I am so excited to stop forcing myself to eat 6 times a day, it feels soooo counterproductive and unnatural to me because I have noooo desire to eat at all until maybe 4pm. I also wanted to know about having cream or half and half in my coffee during a fast as this is my only hinderence so far. I am on day two of my fast. eating only from 6pm to 10pm and yesterday (first day) I was groggy and a bit dizzy but probably just because it’s new. I did however notice that by 6pm I had forgotten to eat and almost missed my eating window from 6 to 10pm. It feels so good to have an empty stomach. I have been having a lot of digestive issues (before I started), gas all the time, bloating when I eat anything no matter what it is, constipation. Feel so much better (digestively speaking) not having food in my stomach except at one mealtime (6 to 10pm). I do want to know if having a protein bar during the my fast will screw up my results at all though. Sometimes (like after a workout) I need that so I don’t get a headache or feel dizzy. I useLife choice bars, they are the best. But will that negate the affects of how wonderfully effective a fast should be during the 18 to 24 hour period because I broke it up with a protein bar or protein shake??? I hope I get an answer soon as this blog is only useful if there is somneone (a professional) here to answer the numerous questions posted. :)Thanks so much

I’d say both the warrior diet and eat stop eat are good approaches. They key is consistency. Thanks for the review!

scottylastat June 26, 2012 at 10:27 am

I need help. Been doing eat stop eat for 4 weeks going into my fifth. Fasting dinner to dinner on mondsys and thursdays. Been doing visual impact work out 3 days a week with cardiovascular after each work out. Never eat over 1800 calories a day on off days. I am 5’9″ 200 lbs. Pleanty of muscle but some soft spots in stomach and love handles what am I doing wrong?? Or should I just keep doing what I’m doin? I haven lost one pound????

paul petre July 9, 2012 at 11:41 am

dima, you eat a big meal at night because you get the most Growth-Hormone in the first hour of sleep, if you don’t eat ANY sweets and trigger insuline-spike, wich will supress the GH.
GH builds muscle and works with the human-fat enzymes to burn them (you burn fat with GH).
So, if you get lots of proteins at night, when the most GH is squirted in your body, you WILL GET STRONGER. I’ve tryed it, I lost 14Kg in 28days, and I will say it again: YOU WILL GET STRONGER AND BIGGER AND LEANER.
But the warrior diet is not for everyone, and nobody should do it as said above. Instead, try to eat one big meal 2 days and have 3 small meals the third day. Or however you want, but just keep a ‘2-3 to 1’ ratio.
But all this is just advice, you can do whatever you feel it is working for you. As long as you see the results every 2 weeks, and you get the nutrients and antioxydants and vitamins that your body needs, you’ll be just fine and looking better every day.

Karisma July 17, 2012 at 1:28 pm

I started the eat stop eat diet last year of March 2012. I was 151 pounds and I lost about 30 lbs. I’m currently maintaining at 122 lbs. The weight came off about gradual
and I looked completely different within 4 months. I also feel better. Much more awake than usual. I also combined the diet with eating healthy. I don’t drink coca-colas. I drink white tea which is packed with anti-oxidants. I also slimmed down eating tons of meat, cutting out everything except for fish and chicken. I also focus on food high in fiber and fruits and veggies. Beans is also in the cubbard. I quit whole D milk and switched to vanilla soy and vanilla almond. I snack on bananas and peanuts quite a bit. Anything from the nuts group is healthy. I swtiched to extra virgin oil when cooking stir fries. I also stopped eating white bread and switched to whole grain. I really saw a differance doing eat stop eat and combining it with healthy eating. In fact I feel like I eat even more now. I was used to eating junk food and processed food and I stayed tired 24/7. I also snack on dark chocolate. If you eat certain things minimally you don’t have to worry about gaining weight back. I lost all this weight without excercise by the way. I definately recommend it if you don’t want to starve yourself or run yourself to death trying to lose weight.

Jorie August 6, 2012 at 12:57 am

I am a mom of 4 with a professional full time job. Eat, Stop, Eat is wonderful. I have too much to think about and eliminating food during the day allows me to be more productive and frees up breakfast, snack, lunch and snack time. It is liberating. I do a boot camp at 5:30am and this eating program fits my lifestyle. Thank you! I only wish more moms knew about it. It works.

Nosisa September 6, 2012 at 10:25 am

My own diet is to eat twice a day, Breakfast and Dinner.
For breakfast I usually have my cereal, Oat or All bran flake or Muesli
With fat free milk and some type of fruit. After breakfast I eat nothing but drink
water only until Dinner. Basically I eat every 12 hours, 7:00am breakfast an 19:00 Dinner.
For dinner its basically vegetables, grilled checken/Fish with Brown rice.
its been 2 weeks now since I started this diet and I have lost 7lbs.
I do 30minutes of exercise which is basically jumping rope with a bit of pilate
and stomach crunches 4 times a week.

Nosisa September 6, 2012 at 10:47 am

Before I started this diet I used to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks inbetween.
It did help up to a certain point and I stopped losing weight.
So with this diet I wanted to lose the last bit of body fat that is remaining.
Now I’m only left with 8lbs to lose for me to reach my goal weight.

After reaching my goal I won’t stop eating this way because I feel like I can live
This way 4 the rest of my life. It really make things easy for me during the day
Because I don’t have to worry about what I’m gonna eat.
After having my breakfast I set my mind that the next meal will be at 19:00pm
During the day I don’t even get hungry anymore like I used to the 1st week I started.

Hey i have read the eat stop eat pdf, however i’m not sure how to follow it. I eat my main evening meal at 6pm in the evening, so if i was to fast from 6pm to 6pm would I be skipping my main evening meal or would I be eating my main meal and skipping breakfast and lunch? It would be great if you could clarify this for me.

Warrior diet is awesome…I droped more than 10 pounds in less than a month.

I am still trying to weight the two up. Eat Stop Eat has been going pretty good in Australia for quite some time now, on the other hand the Warrior Diet hasn’t been heard of as much here.

It’s up to the individual really, Eat Stop Eat is the one I can comment on, and it definitely did help me reach my weight loss goals, as someone wanting to trim down.

Warrior Diet seem to be marketed towards those who are trying for the muscular approach, and that wasn’t my intention.

I think with proper application, both will work fine.

Are there any supplements that you suggest taking if you follow the eat stop eat diet? Do you take any supplements/ vitamins?

Interesting. I notice that just listening to your body when you aren’t compelled to stuff your face for emotional reasons, yields the same type of eating pattern. I’m not as lean as I’d like to be and can’t always eat when or what I want to eat, right now, but folks think I eat plenty (if not too much!). Yet I’m not two-ton-tessy like folks keep telling me I should be. I’ve decided to stick to this eating pattern largely as a lifestyle choice, with a bit of a difference. Be more mindful of my eating in order to switch out more of my favorite high calories/low nutritionally dense foods for better eating and get as comfortably lean as I’m more accustomed to being, as well.

Eating disorders here we come!
I have recovered from compulsive binge eating disorder and must admit that this could be one of the worst ways of eating for people who had eating issues in the past. i am very tempted to try it but because of my past condition and because i love myself now i am not going to do this because i definitely know where it would lead me to.
Guys, be careful.
Thanks for sharing though your thoughts. I enjoyed reading

Intermittent fasting has been the only way i can shift that unwanted fat around the love handle and lower back area. Combine IF with a calorie deficit and low carbs and the fat just melts off.

All my life my weight had fluctuated. Although I noticed that they times I was lean and thin was when I was a bartender. In other words, I was only eating once a day, before work. Usually at about 4:00 pm. Now that I sit on my ass all day at work and my schedule is basically nice to five. I have gained a ton of weight.
Therefore I have decided to try this fasting method. I am on day 4 or so, and already my friends are noticing. Keep in mind that I am not doing the standard. First I am taking PGX to control my hunger during the day. I also drink coffee with cream, but try to keep it down to 2 cups. I am also drinking a ton of water. I don’t weigh myself but would like to do up my suit jacket in a few days. Yes, I did say a few days! Like I said I am already feeling much leaner and am certain this is working for me.
BTW: I am a 46 year old, overweight female

I had been doing ESE for the past couple of months and it had really been effective attacking the most stubborn fat on my body…now I’ve started trying WD just in the past week and the fat-attack has exploded! Belt notch going from 3 to 4 holes already! ESE is a really nice way to wean into WD when you feel like you are ready for it….calorie deficit is the way to go….focus on lean protein, saturated and monounsaturated fats, almost no carbs, and lots of vegetables including leafy greens, for essential vitamins and minerals without adding empty calories…
