The New Expanded Eat Stop Eat

by Brad Pilon

When I first released Eat Stop Eat the entire book was under 75 pages.

As short as that sounds, it had everything you needed to know in order to be successful at losing weight using the Eat Stop Eat lifestyle of flexible intermittent fasting combined with resistance training.

However…since Eat Stop Eat is an e-book, it would be a crime not to take advantage of the massive benefits that the e-book format can offer.

Namely – The ease of updating any work.

So that’s exactly what I did.

The New Expanded Eat Stop Eat is over 140 pages long and now contains updated information on many of the health benefits of flexible intermittent fasting including some VERY relevant information on weight loss, fasting and chronic systemic inflammation (which I think I will be the next BIG health issue).

I’ve updated the references to include everything that I deemed relevant that was published since ESE’s original launch.

I’ve also included a new revised chapter on resistance training and another on hunger, because both are extremely relevant to your weight loss success.

I’ve done my best to keep the book ‘User friendly’ meaning I’ve tried to keep it as readable as possible (it’s been referred to as ‘newbie friendly’).

I’ve also done my best to accurately report on the science of intermittent fasting and weight loss in a way that is honest, truthful and not overly hyped.

So without further ado, I present to you the latest version of EAT STOP EAT.


PS- I’ve you’ve read the new version, drop me a line here and let me know what you think!

I just bought ESE. Am I now supposed to buy the Expanded edition?

Hey Tony,

You have the new version

It would be hard to improve the Eat Stop Eat book, but I think you’ve managed it. The additional information concerning inflammation gives us another hugely important reason to skip a few meals and, by itself, is a worthy addition.

The additional material on exercise is not something I need, but it would be useful to many people, especially those who are beginning ESE and discover they need to also begin resistance training.

I could have easily managed to continue Eat Stop Eat without this expanded edition, but more information, more science, more knowledge about health benefits makes the expanded edition a more valuable resource especially for those of us who want to understand exactly what we’re doing and why. I suspect that means most people who buy the ebook rather than just figure out the basics of the ESE lifestyle from your blogs and videos.

Receiving a surprise email from you with a free updated, expanded ebook was quite a gift. I’m too cheap to buy the book twice, but it would be a drag to know I had an “outdated” version. That’s not to say that the previous version would be really out of date, but I would have felt that it was. So, thanks for the updated edition, Brad. So many people would simply market the additional information as if it were a “new product.”

As a physician I find Eat Stop Eat to be one of the most professionally done pieces I’ve seen on the subject of nutrition and weight loss. I very much appreciate the simplicity of the lifestyle and the depth of supportive information.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the kind words and I’m so glad you enjoyed the new version!

The new version adds some valuable information and the fact that it is free is great. I like the audio book version of Eat-Stop-Eat also. I am a big fan of intermittent fasting and have been telling as many people as I can with my blog. I have had great results with eat-stop-eat and it has made my life so much more simple. The new version just makes it even better!

I lIke the additions to your book and I learned some new things that were very useful.

However, I was surprised that you made little mention of autophagy-one of the major advantages of IF. Of course autophagy might mean more to me than you as I am close to 70.

I have done a link chase on autopphagy and there is a wealth of information available. Based on that information, I use IF to do cell hardening, strengthen muscle cells and to kill random cancer cells floating around in my body. There is enough information available to justify a chapter in yet another edition in your book when the time comes.

Otherwise, congratulations on your great work.

I have first, third and the last expanded edition- Well done

Ade October 6, 2010 at 4:12 am

I bought ESE. Am I now supposed to buy the Expanded edition?
i thought we got free updates?

Magda October 6, 2010 at 4:59 am

It’s probably a stupid question but I’ll ask anyway. If I buy your e-book can I print it, so that I could read it on paper?

Sandro October 6, 2010 at 6:57 am

hi Brad

I’ve read a review from LeanGains Blog and I’m quoting Martin:” n one part Brad also cites a researcher who claims that “the idea that there is golden period of getting amino acids into your muscles is speculative at best,” which is untrue. Several studies show increased muscle protein synthesis when protein is consumed pre-workout.” why they think that post wo meal is so IMPORTANT??for what for??what do you think??


Brad Pilon October 6, 2010 at 10:08 am

Same as I always say, acute increases in protein synthesis do not always translate into measurable increases in muscle mass or size.

Brad Pilon October 6, 2010 at 10:08 am

Of course!

Brad Pilon October 6, 2010 at 10:09 am

Ade, I’ve updated everyone who bought ESE, look for an email from me in your inbox.

Brad Pilon October 6, 2010 at 10:09 am

Glad you like it!

Brad Pilon October 6, 2010 at 10:10 am

Hi Jake,

The research on autophagy is impressive, however I decided it may be to complicated for the base book, I’m thinking of adding it to the advanced audio files, or perhaps as a telesmeminar in ESE-U.


Brad Pilon October 6, 2010 at 10:10 am

Thanks Kelly!

Downloaded this morning, read it completely in a couple of hours then skipped breakfast to start my 1st fasting. What intrigued me the most besides the obvious was the chapter on inflammation. If fasting can help with my asthma in anyway I’m in!!
