The Beginning Of The Feast And Famine Diet

Every good idea got its start somewhere. The every other day Feast and Famine Diet has had its way paved for it by earlier intermittent fasting protocols, some a big influence and others not so much, but who still deserve credit for being forward thinkers.

Let’s take a look at the history of diets that have come before Feast and Famine and see what we can learn from them. Knowledge is power after all. We have already seen in the mirror and felt in our bodies – that Feast and Famine works big time, we have these pace setters to thank for their experiments and innovations!

First The Warrior.
Make no mistake, Ori Hofmekler is certainly a unique guy. Artist, writer and ex-special forces soldier who ran a short lived fitness magazine that was published by a famous Men’s magazine company.
During his time as editor in chief he was exposed to the often conflicting ideas of a who’s who of dieting gurus of the time, which landed him an obsession with getting to the truth about fat loss.

A few years later came the Warrior Diet book which promotes a 16 hour daily fast followed by a 8 hour eating period. Overall consensus was that it worked, but most people feel the Warrior Diet is difficult to maintain, much more so than every other day fasting ala Feast and Famine. Either way Ori definitely get’s credit for the modern birth of intermittent fasting and has served as a great influence on most everyone’s ideas who are working with these methods.

Eat Stop Eat.

Eat Stop Eat has been an intermittent fasting dieting method promoted most recently by Brad Pillon. Brad pushes the idea of one or two, zero calorie days a week, the rest of the days eating normally. Once again it’s effective and close to what we suggest, but our experience has shown going down to 500 calories every other day is much more effective and manageable than a few days of no calories at all. Not many seem to be able to stick with Eat Stop Eat for long in our experience.

The 5:2 Diet.

This is the diet plan most closely related to Feast and Famine and also closest to us on the time line. It’s wildly popular in Europe and is gaining ground in places like Hollywood in the USA.

Five days of normal eating followed by two days of reduced calories. Very powerful and all our ideas here work well with the 5:2 Diet. Our opinion holds every other day Feast and Famine is a better fat burner without added psychological tolls. Follow this Guide’s advice and I think you will agree!

That’s the recent history of intermittent fasting leading us to where we are today. Feast and Famine is the present and I have no doubt it will proudly stand the test of time. It torches fat, is easy to follow, requires really no added expenses in its purest form and promotes over all vibrant health. What’s there not to love about Feast and Famine? It’s perfect for the health enthusiast who wants to get lean and look great.

  3. First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if
    you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
    out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
