The Fast Diet: The Secret of Intermittent Fasting – Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, Live Longer A radical approach to weight-loss that claims you can eat what you like (most of the time) and become slimmer and healthier.
You eat normally for five days and for just two days you drop your calories – 500 for women and 600 for men. Co-author Dr Michael Moseley is a medical journalist who first alerted the nation to intermittent fasting in a BBC Horizon documentary. He quotes scientific trials that have proven this diet works and also lowers the risk of a wide range of diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease. There is a useful calorie counter and menu plans to inspire you. The paperback version costs £2.95 from Amazon – click on the image to buy.
