How It Works

I follow the program by Brad Pilon called "Eat Stop Eat." I fast every Sunday night from about 8pm to the following Monday at about 6pm. Sometimes I shorten it to 18-20 hours if needed, or I change the day of the week if I have a work event scheduled on Monday. It's flexible and helps me in many ways. You can still drink water, tea, black coffee, or zero-calorie drinks if you're desperate, but the key is to stay away from food.
