A few years back, I read a book called God's Chosen Fast by Arthur Wallis, a medical doctor who had become convinced of the medical advantages of fasting. In this book, based upon personal experience and extensive research, Brad Pilon has become convinced that intermittent fasting is an excellent tool for optimal health, wellbeing and weight control. In this short book he does an amazing job of drawing together different resources. Drawing from cutting edge research and a wide range of medical and scientific resources he presents a very convincing argument. In this short book, under 100 pages, he covers the following topics:

Table of Content:
