Publisher's Summary

Not just weight loss - better health too! The authors of the book that is still the number one UK nonfiction best seller six months after publication now present their work for audiobook listeners and make it even easier to adopt their brilliant system.
Far from being just another fad, the Fast Diet is a radical new way of thinking about food, a lifestyle choice that could transform your health. This is your indispensable guide to simple and effective weight loss, without fuss or the need to endlessly deprive yourself. Eat normally for five days each week, and cut your calories on the other two. Scientific trails of Intermittent Fasting have shown that it will not only help the pounds fly off but also lower your risk of a range of diseases including diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Dr Michael Mosley, the medical journalist who presented the BBC Horizon programme which alerted the world to the IF phenomenon, presents the science behind the 5:2 diet, and Mimi Spencer, award-winning writer, explains the practicalities. It really is straightforward to incorporate this groundbreaking weight-loss system.

Any additional comments?

I can see how this book will help many people. Perhaps not super active types due to calorific need and hormones making fasting tricky - but office types absolutely this will really help control weight & health. If you are in a chair all day, a bit older, carrying some health issues and thus cannot exercise much - here is your diet.

Awesome intro to a life changing proposition

Have listened to a couple of books on fasting this week. I was a bit mystified by the focus on low fat in this one given the surge in published findings on the benefits of high fat easing of the last decade. Still, this book has been planned superbly. Its content is both accessible and inspirational. It is practical and practicable. And the formats of the different sections stimulated interest throughout. Superb job - very well done - and thankyou!
