Intermittent Fasting Resource

I have been talking about the weight loss benefits of fasting on this fitness blog for a few months now. Since I truly believe it is one of the best ways to control your weight, I put together the ultimate intermittent fasting resource. When I first started experimenting with fasting I did a lot of research and found some great information from some of the best bloggers and experts in the field.

After studying all the information I could find, I concluded that the best program to follow is Brad Pilon’s Eat Stop Eating Program. If you want to try intermittent fasting do it right by following a proven system. To help you decide if it is right for you, I wanted to let you see all the research that I did. Click through all the links below and you will see a great deal of information about fasting.

  1. It’s funny how most magazines talk about eating 5 or 6 meals on a daily basis but rarely will you ever see fasting as a better option for fat loss.

    I have seen this (Intermittent Fasting) method as a great way for someone who wants to reach their goals in a way that is healthy and not impossible to accomplish.

  2. I am a few weeks into an IF regimen, and I have seem amazing results! I FINALLY got rid of that little bit of fat around my lower abs and perfected the six pack. Overall, my total body has felt amazing, and I have had muscle GAIN.

  3. As Sam pointed out above so many people in this industry focus on 5 – 6 solid meals a day and to be honest I have only ever tried that approach myself. I think I am going to have to look into fasting and possibly give the eat – stop – eat program a go. Nice looking website by the way!
