        Hi ErinBW. Thanks for taking the time to share your insight. What are some of the myths you would add to his post?
        I like your post on Brad Pilon's book. You do need a caloric deficit and "diets" are more lifestyle changes than something you do just to lose weight.

        Thanks Solomon Justice for your input. You have a good point. If someone fasts (like juicing or liquid-fast) once a week it gives the digestive system a "break" and this can be a really healthy practice. It does depend on genetics too--if you have a high metabolism that will change how things work. This post was intended to be generic.
        Thanks for your feedback and for visiting, and for the link. I'm glad this worked for you. Victor Pride does agree with eating carbs and protein (every 3 hrs) and that's what's needed for bodybuilders. Are you a bodybuilder? Do you follow his method for weight-loss or building more?

        For number two it really depends it has been proven that individuals who fast once a week tend to be leaner and live longer then others who do not. All in all it really depends on the individual genetic makeup of what works and what does not so to say that one thing works for you that it work for everyone else. Here something that worked for me : http://bit.ly/1g3zWeb

        Frankly, I wouldn't call all of these myths. The only myths here, if you are following modern science and not 'something a friend told me', is number 1 -- maybe number 4. Regards, Erin B ebweightloss.com
