This is the simplest, most flexible and most health enhancing weight loss programme you'll ever follow - and with this book to guide you, you can start today.

You'll still get to eat all the foods you love but enjoy incredible health benefits, with positive effects on cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's and more. Intermittent fasting is revolutionising the weight loss world. Simply by eating significantly less for one or two days a week you can trigger incredible physical and mental changes that protect your body and brain from damage and help it repair itself.

And The 5:2 Diet Book - packed with tips, science, recipes, inspiration and case studies from over thirty dieters - will help you join the revolution to lose weight, boost your brain and transform your body.

And it'll even save you money, with no specialist diet foods or supplements required. No wonder it's as popular with men as it is with women - and with first-time dieters as with weight loss veterans.

Journalist and former yoyo dieter Kate Harrison has finally won the battle with her weight - now she shares the secrets that are helping thousands of men and women transform their bodies.

The 5:2 Diet Book is your comprehensive guide to the wonderful world of intermittent fasting.

It includes:
* All you need to trigger the 'healing' mode that happens when you restrict your diet for as little as one day a week
* The incredible effects on your brain cells
* The transformation in the way you view hunger and food
* The cost savings you can make - saving pounds from your food bill as you lose them from your body!
* 5:2 your way - how to personalise the diet to your exact requirements and preferences
* Detailed meal plans, and simple but healthy recipes...
* Or ready-made suggestions for when you don't feel like cooking
* Hundreds of real-life tips and success stories from men and women like you

This is more than another diet craze - it's anything but crazy and it's a lifestyle you'll want to adopt for the rest of your life.

Kate Harrison tried Michael Mosely's Fast Diet, found it worked, and wrote this very helpful users guide.
She balances factual information with personal comment and anecdates from others following the diet. Her charts are very readable and her recipes have calorie counts on them. She presents an easy way of starting and continuing on this revolutionary diet which is changing lives around the world.
I have bought copies for several friends and told many, many more about it.

The 5:2 diet book

The book is very Brito-centric, with listed foodstuffs from Tescos. I hope someone comes up with an Australian version.But I found it reasonably useful.

    Was a good book. Too much information about the writer - I know she has to give her experiences on how she came about the diet, but sometimes it was too much.

            This book is a result of research by UK doctor, Michael Mosley. Great book for those who want to shed weight but I would suggest it is a sensible eating plan.

            The conclusion Dr Mosley came to is that the human race is genetically programmed to be hunter/gathers. Therefor the diet is called 5:2; the two indicating fasting days. So 5 days of usual food (assuming it's not KF or the like)and 2 days of dieting replicating the lifestyle of paleo man. The 2 days are great. They need not be consecutive. They can be Mon, Thurs for example. These days mean 600 calories for men and 500 calories for women. His wife has written a great book and now even hubby likes to follow recipes. It is called 'the fast diet recipe book' by Mimi Spencer with Dr Sarah Schenker. book
