The Fast Diet: The Simple Secret of Intermittent Fasting: Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, Live Longer Reviews

  • Paul

    Convinced me now to put it into action!

  • Heather

    Intermittent Fasting for the win! The title of this book is a bit misleading, as it's not a diet so much as a strategy for calorie control and health improvement. Like so many others, my husband and I became interested in Intermittent Fasting (IF) after watching Dr Michael Mosley's Horizon/BBC programme Eat, Fast, Live Longer, and this book expands upon the information covered in that documentary. The system is simple- for two days a week, you eat 25% of your daily calories (500 for women and 60 ...more

    The first, and probably last, diet book I'll ever read. Most diets don't work, or when they do the loss is only temporary. We all know that. So why did I bother to read this? And why am I persuaded that it might be a different and important new approach to health and well-being?

    I was given this book by my parents-in-law who had found it very helpful. Another friend has also successfully followed the 5:2 approach for about six months. I was curious because, as a man in his early fifties who eats

    Interesting read, a diet where you can not only lose weight , but improve health at the same time. Found it motivating, and intend to give it a try.

    I've never been a fan of diets. I've seen them work in the short term, only to be discarded weeks or months later to no effect, or worse, to a greater weight gain on the rebound. I've always tried to preach to our young, impressionable girls that a person needs to eat healthy and stay active and not worry about a number on a scale. I want so much to reinforce a healthy self-image and not fill their minds with the thought that their body isn't good enough. I don't talk about my weight and I've go ...more

    It's a book about dieting so not a cuddly bedtime read but it worked for me. I saw Michael Mosley's TV show about the 5:2 diet (where you eat normally for 5 days a week and eat only 600 calories for two days a week on the other two) and got the book.

    The book served to help on those hungry days, to steel my resolve and strangely not make it seem harder.

    It is actually a good read as it goes into the reasoning and history of why we eat too much and why fasting is something we have only not done rec

    Starting today ! I watched this documentary a couple months ago and have thought about it off and on since. My fiancé brought home the book from the library and the reasons to start are overwhelming. In fact, the book was prompted by the popularity of the program. We are both TOFI (Thin on the outside and fat on the inside) , or skinny fat, or tiny with round bellies, or lucky trolls; anyways, READ THIS BOOK!

    I don't normally write reviews about health/diet books but the ideas in this book have really worked much better than I expected. I started the diet about two months ago and I have dropped about 30 lbs. When I started I was 207 lbs (I tend to fluctuate between 205 and 215), my dream weight was 180 lbs, and today I weighed in at 176.1 lbs on the gym scale.

    Now I must confess that I tweaked the system to speed up the weight loss. First, on the fast days I only eat between 50 to 200 calories (not th
