The fast beach diet is one of the easiest ways to loose weight without starving yourself. I've lost 5lbs since starting the 5:2 diet 3 weeks ago, and I'm really pleased. I love the freedom this diet gives me, I eat 500 calories on a fast day and no more than 1500 calories on an off day. I'm not obese, but I do have a couple of stones to lose before my sisters wedding in Hawaii this summer. The author encourages you to stop/reduce drinking alcohol, and focus on eating raw foods/vegetables. There's lots of great tips and suggestions on exercise routines. I highly recommend it.

P.S. To stop myself overindulging on non fast days I'm following a healthy eating plan, one of my favourite books I'm using is called Superfruit Smoothies: 50 Healthy Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss, Energy & Optimum Health, it's packed full of nutritious recipes under 500 calories.

Frankly I am evangelical about this book. Nicely written - as it should be the author is an accomplished journalist and writer!

I have been doing the regular Fast Diet/5:2 diet for around 12 months and have slowly but surely lost around 20lbs. After a little bit of a plateau and a holiday gain I followed much of the advice in this book and lost 11.5lbs in 12 weeks. I chose to wait until the end of my 6 week plan to do this review so I could post my result and comment on my ability to stick to it. It does demand a bit more effort and strictness than some might prefer from 5:2 but there is really great advice and if you really want results it is worth a read. That said it is very much a pick and mix approach so you choose to follow what advice you think is best for you. I see this as a stricter plan that I will try to do across different parts of the year but recognise that probably hard to maintain week in and week out until I get to my goal weight.

Although I know a lot about the fast diet I still found it really useful as both a refresher and for new inspiration. I already actually do 3 fasts almost every week but there is lots more tips and ideas about ways to tighten up on non fast days that I found successful. Also good information about he variety of fasting windows that can be adopted.

I haven't really incorporated the fast exercise techniques so far so can't really comment on these. First couple of attempts were hard going and I was already in the middle of a running plan so opted to stick with that...............which I didn't entirely!

Nice little selection of recipes too.

I have heard a lot about Intermittent Fasting over the last year but I confess my lack of knowledge meant I looked upon it as another fad and not a realistic approach to battling the bulge.

Thankfully The Fast Beach Diet has shown me how grossly misinformed I was and provided me with tools and information that I believe will finally help me get a handle on my weight. Already the pounds are dropping and I am keen to continue.

The Fast Beach Diet is an extension of the original text and is focused on seeing faster weight loss in a shorter time than The Fast Diet. Therefore this is a stricter form of the diet but my personality thrived on it. Written in a clear, concise manner, I quickly grasped the concept of IF and never felt I was lacking for not having read the first book. I liked the alternate chapters and perspectives of Mimi and Michael and felt I gained a more thorough picture of the diet rather than simply the information being presented in a lecture. I've since purchased the original Fast Diet to follow throughout the winter months when I don't want to follow such a strict approach and to enhance my collection of recipes.
Full of tips, tricks and motivation, this books has proved invaluable and has taught me that dieting doesn't have to be a chore!

if you have bought the original Fast Diet book then you don't need this. Really wish i'd saved my money. Its not a bad book but its pointless if you have the original. it just recaps and repeats a lot. the original is great, hope they don't dilute it too much and squeeze more money from us

Having read the first few pages of this, it looks like it's going to save my beach bum this year. Lots of great tips, well written, and nice pacey style. I even like the jacket design which is unusually stylish for a diet book. Thoroughly recommend it.
