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

From the authors of the #1 bestselling Fast Diet, this fabulous cookbook offers more than 150 carefully crafted, nutritious and low-calorie recipes to enable you to incorporate the 5:2 weight-loss system easily into your daily life.

Scientific trials have revealed that if you eat normally for five days a week but reduce your calorie intake for only two days, you will not only lose weight but potentially lower your risk of cancer, diabetes and other age-related diseases. In The Fast Diet Recipe Book, Dr Michael Mosley, the medical journalist whose BBC Horizon programme first alerted the world to the Intermittent Fasting phenomenon, and Mimi Spencer, award-winning food and fashion writer, offer a groundbreaking guide to following this diet in a safe, effective and sustainable way - you will never have to worry about planning your fast days again.

The recipe section contains a range of breakfast and supper dishes - all expertly balanced with plenty of protein and moderate complex carbohydrates - designed to fill you up and stave off the WC dreaded hunger pangs. There are also detailed menu plans and plenty of encouraging tips - including kitchen cupboard essentials, the latest nutritional advice, a user-friendly calorie counter, and a whole section of speedy meals that can be quickly made for those busier days.

        This recipe book is attractively laid out with clear instructions how to use the system. Each recipe has its calorie count clearly marked, a small introduction and a titbit about the health properties of one of the ingredients.

        The chapters are logical and the Meal Planner is a great sample for you to create your own. In the main the meals are simple and delicious although there are a few 'exotic' recipes some may find ingredients hard (or expensive) to obtain.

        Fast Diet works for me

          • Overweight people

          I found the Fast Diet book was excellent. Loosing weight was easier when used in conjunction with Fast Recipe book. There are plenty of delicious recipes to choose from making fasting days easier. I found the soups were more fulfilling for the evening meal.
          Fast Exercise is still a work in progress, but going well.

                      Excellent support to The Fast Diet.
                      These recipes manage easily to be attractive, very nicely illustrated, and practical. As an adjunct to the Diet book, they all have a KJ/calorie value, so you can more easily adjust your intake to support your needs.
                      At the same time, you can use these recipes to create appealing tasty meals for anyone, dieter or no!

                        The 5day-eat-2day fast diet really works and the recipe book offers easy and tempting meals with the calorie count shown. The recipes are simple, with coloured photos, and offers choices for each meal whilst sticking to the number of calories permitted on fast days. The notes on nutrition are excellent too.

                          This recipe book is a must have for anyone following the 5:2 Fast Diet. It is full of inspiring low calorie recipes, matched with beautiful mouthwatering photos.
                          It does use ingredients, such as fish and fruits, not usually found in Australia, but one can easily innovate.
