Good information on fasting

So far, this is the most in depth and detailed book on fasting I've read. I'm still new to doing it and I find it challenging, but books like this as well as THE OBESITY CODE have convinced me to make it part of my life.

I took off one star for the overall rating and story only because the author promotes the idea of drinking diet soda during the zero calorie phase of your fast. Sighhh. No matter how many times you tell me "it almost doesn't matter what you eat during the feeding period, fasting fixes everything!" I can't support this. Artificial sweeteners are poison. I don't like this mentality that just because your fasting habits will keep you slim, you can consume whatever you want without really thinking about it. Food is MEDICINE. Treat it with respect. Treat your body with respect. Just because you get thin does not mean you're healthy.

That's the only gripe i have with this book. Fasting is great. I'm convinced of that. But what you eat, when you do eat, MATTERS. The food you choose to eat either enhances or hurts your health. So just keep that in mind when you read this.

Content yes- barking dogs and background noise no.

I had just read the Complete Guide to Fasting, and this book was mentioned, so I thought I'd try it. It's a good companion book, and I liked the content, but the garbled electronic noise and barking dogs in the background of the narration were absolutely maddening. Was it recorded in a mall? An animal shelter? I don't understand how books with this type of noise get published on Audible. I vote for the print version of this book.

This is the best Intermittent Fasting book

I listened to Brad Pilon's original book about 4-6 years ago whenever it came out and it made a major impact on my life. I've read nearly all the I/F books but Brad brings in the most scientific research in a very consumable manner. His first audiobook was a DIY and the quality of the production was poor but this one on Audible is absolutely top-notch and the production is great. I really enjoyed listening to this updated version about 10 times more than the first edition.

Good content but...

The content is very informative and easy to understand but narrator make it very exhausted to listening to, too fast and monotonous plus too fast and unintended in some chapters. Sorry to say that.

One of the best books I've read on fasting

This is one of the best, if not the best, books I've read on intermittent fasting. Pilon explains the science and the approach in a straightforward and easy to understand manner. I've read a number of Jason Fung's books (Complete Guide to Fasting, The Obesity Code) and learned the most from Pilon's book. He doesn't make grandiose claims and doesn't "dumb it down" by repeating the same concept twenty times over. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in learning about the benefits of intermittent fasting and want to try a simple approach to it.

Interesting Perspective

Pilon has obviously done a lot of research to write this book. Kudos ! I liked a lot of the information. The one thing that was lacking for me was the absence of clear direction on healthy eating between Fasting days. Too vague for my purposes. Telling people to basically eat less on Eating days leaves a lot to personal interpretation. That said I did pick up a lot of tips on and justification for the benefit of fasting

The narration is ruining this book

I'm still listening to this book, but I had to stop to review it. I have never reviewed an audible book until now.
This is a book I really wanted to hear but the narration is pretty bad. I guess he gets paid a flat fee or something, so the faster he gets through it the more money he makes per hour. He sounds miserable--like he just wants to be done. I kept checking to see if I had it on 1.5x speed by accident.
But here's why I stopped it to write this. If I hear this guy say AUTO-FAIGY one more time I'm going to lose it. If you're hired to read a book that repeats a word about 50 times in a chapter, it's probably prudent to look up how to pronounce it prior to recording.

The content was great

The author refers to charts and graphs throughout the book. I don’t think it was meant to be an audible book. I kept feeling like I was missing something because I couldn’t see the graphs.

Narrator makes this bad, read only!

The narrator isn't the right choice for this book, but the story and information is great!
I suggest getting a hardback or kindle version.

Good book bad narration

An insightful book with plenty of info and apparent evidence to back up its claims. The narrator in this particular instance was poor, constantly tripping over words and read with a clinical monotonous tone making it difficult to listen to sometimes.

Common sense at last

What made the experience of listening to Eat Stop Eat the most enjoyable?

No complicated diet, no calorie counting, no banned foods just good old common sense and sanity.

What did you like best about this story?

The way to reach and maintain healthy weight. Period.

Any additional comments?

Narrator was very good, although his mispronunciation of words like estradiol, catecholamines, aspartame was slightly irritating.
