Publisher's Summary

Want a simple and sustainable way to lose fat, build muscle, increase your energy, and feel like a new man?

And do you want an approach that delivers the results at an accelerated rate and doesn't involve dieting?

Well, let me introduce intermittent fasting....

The most sustainable and easy-to-adopt fitness approach that will get you in the best shape of your life.

Loved by celebrities such as Hugh Jackman, Beyonce, Benedict Cumerbatch, and Ben Affleck - intermittent fasting is the key to getting lean quickly and easily.

But what is intermittent fasting?

You will be happy to know it's not a diet - it's a new approach to eating.

Intermittent fasting is simply the process of cycling between periods in which you eat with periods that you don't eat.

These short fasting windows cause your body to produce a multitude of hormonal responses.

These responses produce incredible benefits and results.

But what are the benefits? Well, here are just a few incredible examples....

  • Shred fat (without dieting or limiting the foods you can eat)
  • Build lean muscle rapidly
  • Increase your energy levels
  • Heighten your testosterone and growth hormone production
  • Improve your cognitive functioning

Strategically fasting is one of the most powerful ways to get in shape and stay healthy, as it is based on scientific evidence, not "bro science".

If you've ever tried to get in shape before and failed - don't despair.

The problem with most diets is they put too many limitations on what you can eat. Intermittent fasting is the opposite of this....

You don't need to make any major changes to your diet to reap the rewards.

So what are you waiting for?

Good Concept - Poor Execution

I very much agree with the concept of IF and am a practitioner. That being said, this book does a lot to undermine the idea that IF is more than a bro-science concept. The entire book sounds like a bro's forum post. His descriptions of how awesome you'll feel and how you shouldn't eat stupidly large portions sound less like sound advice and more like a high schooler trying to hit a word count.

good book but not worth buying

this book told me pretty much everything I already knew. he claims all kinds of studies but gives no sources. I found it was an easy quick read and it will give you the foundations but honestly you could find this all on YouTube so save your time and money

Monotonous and Lackluster

The content provided by this book, could have been provided in 3 or 4 chapters. It felt as if the author stretched the contents out over the 12 chapters, to make the book seem more in depth, but it lacked just that. There are very vague explanations of the science involved with intermittent fasting and even less explanations of what the fasting party should expect. I am very disappointed in this book.

Extremely limited

This shouldn't be a book but perhaps a leaflet. I'm also skeptical about the information and no studies were cited.

Terrible... talks about additional things that this version does not have

Fail! I hate when authors talk about extras that have no online version. Epic fail

informative, quick, worth repeating

As a woman I found the information just as useful as any man with interest in IF would. It was quick, to the point, and held my interest the whole time. I found myself wishing, however, that it was longer. but then, what more is there to be said? He covers the basics of current day fasting trends without delving in to historical beginnings, which I personally appreciated since the history of fasting usually Is buried in religious studies versus weight control. the narrator was easy to follow and kept my attention (Benedict Cumberbatch!) although his "S" sound is pronounced a bit sharp. overall I enjoyed the audio book, really believed in the content provided, and now find myself searching for more titles by same author. (even if I'm a straight middle aged woman with no need to become an alpha male)

The author is not a credible authority

The presentation is a watered down info one can easily find on an auto generated website. It is then read out loud for your consumption. I am asking for my money back.

Not worth it

This feels like a long click bait ad with not much new or useful practical information that you can't find from a very basic google search. The narrators voice sounds computer generated. Avoid

Vague

It was short and only really went into very basics about fasting. If you already have a good idea about fasting give this one a miss it’s not worth it. If your brand new to it it’s ok but don’t expect any thing too in depth
