I had plain yogurt this morning, then a salad for lunch. Then, I came home and ate the entire kitchen.
Is this your story? If yes, then you are trapped in the vicious circle of dieting. Dieting is a practice of eating food in a regulated manner so as to lose weight. Most of us often mix up dieting with healthy eating. Eating healthy food is not only about imposing strict dietary restrictions or depriving oneself of the food we love, rather it is all about feeling good, energetic and healthy. There are so many dietary plans and advice available that it is natural for anyone to get overwhelmed with so much knowledge. The situation becomes even more confusing when one expert advises something healthy and someone else contradicts it. With all this confusion and food deprivation, we end up eating more than what is required.
We all know for the fact that when we are restricted to eat certain kind of food, we get the urge to eat more. It is a human psychology that if a person tries to follow a diet, he feels hungry all the time. Dieting is more about self-control rather than regulated food intake. To achieve this, one may need to avail services of dieticians and nutritionists. However, with our busy lifestyles, we do not get enough time to visit them. Apart from that, they charge high fees for such services and therefore most of us resort to the internet which is loaded with thousands of dieting plans which may or may not suit your body type. Here, an excellent book on dieting by the name Eat Stop Eat can come handy for people who wish to lose those extra pounds.
Theory of Eat Stop Eat
Eat Stop Eat has been written by weight loss expert Brad Pilon. Since his early years, he was fascinated by issues related to health and fitness. He soon moved into sports supplement industry. He realized that there is a lot more on how the human body worked. His research led him to write this book which is based on the theory of intermittent fasting that focuses more on when to eat rather than what to eat and what not to eat. According to him, brief and regular fasts can help in losing weight easily. It also leads to better retention of muscles unlike in other diet plans where certain food items are eliminated to cut down on calories. His theory says to fast two times a week without giving up on any specific food.
