Is it possible to eat what you like, most of the time, and get thinner and healthier as you do it? Simple answer: yes.

By simply quartering your calorie intake on two non-consecutive days each week (500 calories for women, 600 for men), you'll lose weight quickly and easily -and the joy of the Fast Diet is that the side-effects are all good.

The science is indisputable: intermittent fasting takes your body out of 'go-go' mode and puts it into survival mode. This causes the body to slow production of new cells and instead repair old ones. You not only lose weight, you reduce your risk of a range of diseases, from diabetes, asthma and arthritis to cardiovascular disease and even cancer. You also slow the ageing process and boost your brain.

This book brings together the results of recent revolutionary research to create a dietary programme that anyone can incorporate into their normal working life. It also includes more than 40 'Fast 500' and '600' recipes by The Times nutritionist Sarah Marber.

Far from being just another 'fad', The Fast Diet is a lifestyle choice which doctors are actually recommending for general health. This is your indispensible guide to making the kilograms fly off, while eating all the foods you love.

          Well, I guess a month after starting the Fast Diet and losing 1.5kg plus cm's has proven what an awesome read the book is. The book is informative and it is nice to have science behind what I am doing. Wish however that I had purchased the paper version, find holding a book in my hands and referencing immediately easier than having to pick up the ipad or phone and work my way through online version. It would be great to have reference to Australian recipes.

                  The book is well written and easy to read. The diet allows you to enjoy all your favourite foods on 5 days of the week. The fast/diet is easy to follow and stick by the rules. The key to success is to plan those two days each week in advance. There is a section in the book dedicated to individuals positive experiences with the program. I found this very helpful & inspiring.
