4.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes 10 Jun 2013
By FLB TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I very nearly didn't buy this book due to the negative comments on here. I am quite fussy about cookbooks and like a certain format of 1 recipe per page accompanied with a photo. When I saw all the comments about the expensive and unusual ingredients, I had images of pigs cheeks, fois gras, sea urchin etc etc.

I have now read every recipe through and I would say that for the average cook, the BBC Good Food readers, or Delia/Jamie fans amongst us, this book has nothing unusual in it. In fact, the first recipe I made, the Teriyaki Chicken was delicious and found a use for the bottle of Mirin I had unused in my cupboard. I didn't have any Sake though, so I improvised with Grappa....I guess vodka would do the trick too.....it was delicious, super simple and the kids loved it.

I can't wait to try some of the other dishes, as I read them through I was thinking 'yum yum' to most of them.

Some of the ingredients you might have to buy specially (such as mirin) but once it is in your cupboard you could use it again, and it certainly wasn't expensive!

So do give it a try, it has inspired me to try the 5:2 diet again because when I had a brief dabble with it before I relied on eggs and yoghurt!

4.0 out of 5 stars 5/2 Fasting Diet 7 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good clear instructions with plenty of meal suggestions. I've lost 11 Kg already. My wife & I use our 500 & 600 cals allowance at breakfast & evening meal only, skipping lunch -- this seems to work better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read 6 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Both my wife and myself are doing this diet and after three weeks we have both lost 9 pounds. The book has some great recipes and good information about the diet. I must admit though that I did see it cheaper in my local supermarket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 2 May 2013
By jacky
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lovely book to help me with my fast days and non fast days. Beautiful pictures and easy to follow instructions. Recipes I've made so far have been delicious, especially the lightweight cottage pie, never had tried celeriac before but what a surprise, even my husband liked it. I would recommend this book even if you haven't got the original fast day diet book as all the rules and guidelines of fasting are explained fully at the beginning of this book. Very useful index at back as recipes are in order of calorie count, great for when you've cheated a little and need a quick scan to find a meal within your remaining calorie quota. Very happy I bought this book and well worth the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars To many exotic ingredients 13 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having been on the fast diet and finding it is working for me I decided to branch out and get the recipe book thinking it would be full or useful everyday recipes. Unfortunately it is full of complex recipes which use a lot of ingredients. Which when you don't live in a city are very hard to find. Such a shame as the Fast Diet book is brilliant
