Is it possible to eat well, most of the time and get slimmer and healthier as you do it? With The Fast Diet it is!

Two years on from first publication of The Fast Diet, which outlined a radical new approach to weight loss and started a worldwide health revolution, intermittent fasting and the 5:2 programme is still the diet everyone is talking about.

An update on Fast Diet lifestyle presented by Mimi Spencer - getting the best out of your Fast Days in practice

Some new recipes plus some Fast Day Favourites - a 'best of' selection from across the Fast books

New section on the psychology of dieting - mindfulness, willpower and good habits

How to get the most out of incorporating HIT and exercise into your programme

An all new Fast Diet planner

An improved, user-friendly calorie counter

This book was hard to follow. I lent it to three friends and all said the same and one said she didn't
finish reading it.

                        This book should be read by everyone! I got it because there is diabetes in the family and I'm staving it off by eating well. This book has added to my knowledge and it is a helpful book for anyone especially those struggling with weight and a diabetes diagnosis.
