So I've purchased quite a few 5:2 diet recipe books now, and usually what I find is that either the recipes are BORING, or there is just no way in hell that the calories add up. So I always check the calories myself. Well, all of the calories of the recipes I've checked so far add up as they should. And even better, they are sooooo good. A previous reviewer stated that the recipe for the 'Caramelized Pear and Swiss Omelette' wasn't accurate, but unfortunately he must not have noticed that recipe serves 4 people, not 1! So the only thing I would say is make sure you check the servings. Most of the recipes serve 1, but a few of them serve 2 or 4. Anyway, this is my go to 5:2 diet book. Love, it, Love it, Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A tasty and easy to follow guide 14 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This 5:2 diet book is well structured, full of colourful pictures and an easy read for anyone wanting to understand and try the 5:2 diet system.

It contains a bunch of tasty, easy-to-follow and make recipes - some are for breakfast, others lunch and dinner.

Didn't believe that I could have a delicious breakfast of about 100 calories. But it is possible and this book shows you how.

This book is great! A very informative introduction to the 5:2 fast diet, with a quick list of foods that work with the diet. The recipes that follow all look delicious, and the ones I've made following it have all turned out amazingly.
The pictures are beautiful and really get you hungry to try the recipes. Great book, definitely recommend.

By Bella
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's got everything what's expected of a recipe book. Beautifully explained on the 5:2 diet itself and how it works, benefits and so on. The book then goes into the recipes, has a good range in fact. The methods are straightforward and easy to follow. Never knew there was a chai tea smoothie, looking forward to trying them out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 16 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I find this book really useful because it explains clearly what the 5:2 Fast Diet is all about. The author gives useful advice on how to manage this diet correctly in other to maximize its benefits. She has provided many recipes which are quick and easy to prepare using readily available ingredients. Most of the meals have a short preparation time of 5-10 mins which makes them more attractive.
I particularly like the recipe for melon-ginger soup, which I intend to try soon. Great pictures too. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delicious Way to Diet 9 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The 5:2 or 'Fast' Diet was popularised by Dr Michael Mosley. It's an appealing idea - you eat normally for 5 days a week and only restrict your calorie intake 2 days a week. The difficulty comes when you try to devise a whole day's menus with a total of only 500 or 600 calories. Diana Clayton's 5:2 Diet Recipes is the prefect answer.

Until I read this book, I hadn't realised how satisfying a sub-300 calorie meal could be. Buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup or blueberries, for instance, only comes to 285 calories. I'd add a squeeze of lemon juice myself because maple syrup is so intensely sweet. Diana's recipe uses half buckwheat and half wholemeal flour which is very filling, but if you are gluten-intolerant, I'm sure it would be almost as satisfying with only buckwheat. Another surprising sub-300 calorie recipe is Spaghetti Rustica (what I know as spaghetti alla puttanesca, but that's not a name for polite company). Can anything so delicious really be slimming? Actually, being pernickety, I checked the calorific calculations for several of the dishes and found them faultless.

Diana has helpfully divided the recipes into breakfasts, lunches and dinners of about 100 calories, about 200 calories and less than 300 calories. I'm particularly looking forward to trying Sesame Kale Chips (British translation Sesame Cavolo Nero Crisps, although I imagine you could use curly kale) at a mere 60 calories a serving. I also like the sound of Mini Zucchini (courgette) Pizzas.

The recipes were a bit strange and don't make you want to cook them. I wouldn't recommend it, there are better books. The fasting day cookbook is a good alternative

It is a good book, but a recipe book should be a dip in and out sort of a book which is very difficult on a kindle but it gets 5 stars for its contents

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for me.
I am not one for counting calories and therefore this is not for me, however I have no gripe with how the book is written, or even the concept of the 5:2 diet.

3.0 out of 5 stars A few good recipes
I've been doing this diet for a long time now. Some good ideas however none of which look massively filling. The most beneficial part of this book is the lists at the start.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth buying if you like to cook
The diet is fine but it's far better to make up your own low calorie recipes than use these - OK for people who can't or won't cook but useless to those who do.
