Heat and Exercise Recovery
During intense, intermittent exercise and throughout prolonged physical activity, your muscles rely on glycogen for energy. Now, you may be wondering, what the heck is glycogen? Most of the carbohydrates you eat are converted to glucose. When the body doesn’t need to use all of this glucose for energy, any extra is stored in the […]
Does Temperature Affect Weight Loss?
Have you ever wondered how and why your body regulates how much you eat and how much you weigh? It’s a really interesting question and one I think we’ve been looking at backwards for far too long. We know that our bodies have internal ways to regulate how much we eat, and it seems that […]
Will you lose weight and keep it off if you diet?
Firstly, let me be clear – Diets work. Saying anything less is disingenuous. They may not work as well as we would hope, but they absolutely work. All those ‘Diets Don’t Work’ headlines are nothing more than clickbait. However, there is a problem with diets… and that problem is what happens after the diet. You […]
Temperature and Growth Hormone
Human growth hormone is a peculiar hormone, while it’s known to be anabolic in nature and is involved in cell growth and regeneration, yet it is also a pivotal fat loss hormone that is required to increase the use of fatty acids as a fuel source during times of fasting. Typically, when we talk about […]
Can Heat Help Your Bones?
Allen’s Rule is a rule of biology that states that the appendages (ears, limbs, and tails) of animals living in cold geographical regions are consistently shorter than those of closely related animals occupying warmer climates. Allen’s Rule is almost wholly dependent on environmental temperature; that is, a secondary growth response in mammals to help maintain […]
The Curious Case of Black Coffee
It has been a great year for Eat Stop Eat. Lots of people tried this way of life, and almost as many fell in love with its simplicity and effectiveness. And, I heard from a lot of people following Eat Stop Eat… Almost 10,000 emails about Eat Stop Eat, and over 1,000 comments on this […]
Optimal Fasting Length
I often get asked my opinion on the optimal length of a fast, unfortunately I don’t ever have a clear answer. To be honest, a 24-hour fast isn’t THAT much better than a 20-hour fast, in the same way that a 20-hour fast isn’t THAT much better than a 16-hour fast, which of course isn’t […]
Break your Fast, still burn more fat.
Here’s a really interesting study result for you. When researchers studied the effect of various diets on cycling performance they found no difference between people who fasted 24 hours the day before versus people who overate by double their daily calorie needs the day before. While this is good news (fasting doesn’t affect next day […]
On the Surety of Fasting
Fasting for 24 hours, once or twice per week, combined with resistance training is what has always worked for me. Or, at least it’s what has worked for me from when I first started fasting in 2006 until now. Yet, every now and then I veer off course and chase whatever shiny new object the […]
