So, how exactly does Eat Stop Eat work?

Because Eat Stop Eat is a version of intermittent fasting, it works, well, like any other intermittent-fasting diet—which is to say, it jumpstarts your metabolism a bit, Eliza Whetzel-Savage, R.D., a registered dietitian with Middleburg Nutrition in New York City,

"When you cut the eating window down, you are creating a fasting period in which the body will have to use its own stored glycogen from carbohydrates and fat as fuel,” she said. “When the glucose and glycogen stores are used, the body switches over to a ketogenic state and burns fat for fuel."

 

Basically, when it's in a fasting state, your body starts burning fat as fuel instead of carbs (a.k.a. ketosis—a hallmark of the keto diet; intermittent fasting and keto have similar effects on the body and may be done together).

 

Well, can Eat Stop Eat help me lose weight?

Probably...but it's likely because you're just not eating as much as you'd usually eat, says Julie Upton, R.D., co-founder of Appetite for Health.

 

But, again, the Eat Stop Eat diet isn't necessarily any better or worse than other forms intermittent fasting like the 5:2 diet (which calls for eating 25 percent of the calories you'd typically eat for two days each week, then five days of eating what you want—again, within reason).

 

"[Eat Stop Eat] is nothing but a twist on regular intermittent fasting,” says Upton. “There is no data on this specific pattern to say that it's better or worse than a traditional intermittent-fasting eating schedule.”

“I’ve gotten off a couple of medications, my BP has come way down, and most particularly, the Eat Stop Eat has radically altered my appetite... I don’t seem to crave food when I’m not particularly hungry. And, a bit of hunger has actually become a pleasant feeling rather than a gnawing feeling.”

Q: Is this type of diet healthy in the long run?

A: According to the research, yes. Fasting initiates many health promoting pathways inside your body, including decreasing inflammation, activating autophagic pathways, and decreasing your body’s total toxin load.
