Having the Strength to Stop Eating

I’ve been trying weight loss solutions for so many years that I consider myself an expert on them, even if they don’t always work. Pretty much every kind of weight loss diet on the planet focuses on what to eat. People count their calories and eat smaller portions, but they’re still deep in thought about intake. There was one particular diet that put an emphasis on having a period of not eating. I became curious about this diet when I saw an Eat Stop Eat review that was overwhelmingly positive. I was beginning to think that this diet would finally be the solution to my problems.

When I started to try the diet, it was pretty much like any other diet. I would eat foods while paying attention to how much and how often during the day. That along with a regular exercise routine made it all seem really familiar. At a certain point, a period of fasting came where I wouldn’t be able to eat. The idea behind the diet is that the body was made to consume food and store energy for periods when there wouldn’t be any food, such as in the winter. Since people generally get food all year long, these periods of food lapse are unlikely to occur, which is why people gain more weight. The fast introduces the period of no food back into human lifestyles.

One the fast was over, I could eat as I normally did at the start of the diet. The fasting section caused me to lose a notice amount of weight. I had to fight the temptation to start eating again, because it would have ruined all of the progress that I had made so far with the diet. It takes a strong will power, but once it’s done, you’ll be glad you did it.
