Brad Pilon’s Intermittent Fasting Video Interview
Featuring a highlight from www.dailymotion.com –
Editor’s Note: This was a nice and quick interview conducted by Dan Go and Rick Kaselj, they caught up with intermittent fasting guru Brad Pilon after a fitness summit.
Pilon is the founder and creator of the Eat Stop Eat diet program. Being that I don’t follow the Eat Stop Eat routine I hadn’t know much of his story or theories, but I didn’t find myself disagreeing with much that he had to say. Hardly anything actually.
Brad tells a cool story at the 2:00 minute mark about how he originally learned the truth about intermittent fasting by being a young cocky trainer trying to prove that fasting doesn’t work in order to create his own diet routine.
What I appreciate is that when he was presented with evidence against his own preconceived opinions, he was humble and changed directions in his thinking. Brad’s Eat Stop Eat program is a favorite among many fasting weight lifters and non-training dieters alike. But it’s aimed more towards people who train with weights, people like myself.
At the 6:40 minute mark Brad gives his thoughts on whether women have problems with fasting and training. He is right when he says, it comes down to basic stress management and many other factors in life come into play for both men and women.
Yes, women are more sensitive to intermittent fasting because their cyclic hormones are more reactive to stress levels. But this does not stop women from having great success using intermittent fasting and training hard, simply put, balance is needed.
Here are our article highlights:
- When done properly, intermittent fasting is less stressful on the body than dieting.
- (9:38 minute mark) “There’s no research to suggest that women can’t do intermittent fasting as successful as men.”
- At the end of the day, nobody has to fast. It’s a tool in your toolbox for more effectively reaching your fitness goals.
