Eat Like a Bear was founded on two key tenets of eating.

Tenet 1: Intermittent Fasting

Tenet 1 of the Bearish way of eating is limiting the block of time that you actually eat. For example, in a 24-hour block of time, you might eat for a block of 5 hours. If you haven’t tried this, you really should. It is a concept that seems strange and seems like it would not be effective, but it was a game-changer for me and has been for many others.

Here are some resources:

Tenet 2: Keto / Low Carb

There are many variations of the recommended “keto” diet out there and I am firmly in the camp of “do what works for you.” I didn’t (and don’t) count macros and I don’t eat a precise portion of fat and protein. However, to lose weight quickly, you need to follow a diet very low in sugars and starches so that your body gets right to burning your body fat each day. Any very low carb program you follow will do this for you.

The Psychology of Success

The great success of the Eat Like a Bear community IS in part due to the food approach above, but the psychology of success may very well be what sets it apart from the herd. Do not miss this content.

More FAQs archived in the ELAB Stories Group on Facebook

The Eat Like a Bear group on Facebook is a “closed” group which means you can only see the content if you are a member. Every FAQ on earth has already been asked in the group, so you can use the search function to discover all sorts of discussions. You can add a comment to those existing discussions, but we rarely approve new FAQ-type posts. The groups feed is dedicated to member stories.

Hopefully you’re a member so you can actually see these answers because there is truly a heroic collection of FAQs in the group which you can scroll through fairly quickly to find topics of interest. Facebook allows us few organizational options so this is basically as good as it gets. Jackie Patti spent hours creating this tool to help you find answers as quickly as possible given the structures we have access to.
