Is it possible to eat what you like, most of the time, and get slimmer and healthier as you do it? Answer: yes. By simply quartering your calorie intake on two non-consecutive days each week (500 calories for women, 600 for men), you'll lose weight quickly and easily - and the joy of the Fast Diet is that the side-effects are all good.

Synopsis

The Fast Diet The Secret of Intermittent Fasting - Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, Live Longer by Mimi Spencer, Michael Mosley

The science is indisputable: intermittent fasting takes your body out of 'go-go' mode and puts it into survival mode. This causes the body to slow production of new cells and instead repair old ones. You not only lose weight, you reduce your risk of a range of diseases, from diabetes, asthma and arthritis to cardiovascular disease and even cancer. You also slow the ageing process and boost your brain. This book brings together the results of recent revolutionary research to create a dietary programme that anyone can incorporate into their normal working life. It also includes more than 40 'Fast 500' & '600' recipes by The Times nutritionist Sarah Marber. Far from being just another 'fad', The Fast Diet is a lifestyle choice which doctors are actually recommending for general health. This is your indispensible guide to making the pounds fly off, while eating all the foods you love.
