Book Description

14 Feb 2013

The 2-Day Diet is the original, clinically proven 5:2 diet to get you slim and healthy, as developed by acclaimed scientists Dr Michelle Harvie and Prof Tony Howell at Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention (all author proceeds go to this charity). To reach your perfect weight, all you need to do is follow this low-carb intermittent diet for two days a week. For the rest of the week just eat normally but sensibly.

It really is that simple, and the science proves it: in trials followers lost more weight than those on continuous calorie-controlled diets, almost twice as much fat, and more centimetres around their waist - and they were more successful at keeping it off!

The 2-Day Diet is packed with clear, safe and simple guidance, plus meal planners and 100 delicious and filling recipes to help you on your way. You'll find out how and why the diet works, and the numerous proven health benefits associated with it, including: reducing cancer risks; lowering high blood pressure; anti-ageing effects; and improving well-being, mood and energy levels.

This is a unique way of eating that can completely retrain your appetite and rejuvenate your body on a cellular level. Finally, you can enjoy your food and stop worrying about your weight for good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a go! 15 Feb 2013
By Bizimum
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This has been serialised in the Daily Mail all week (11th Feb) so I've been following it with interest and ordered the book so I can get more information and follow it properly. The points I really like are that on the 2 'diet' days there is no starving yourself and you can still eat a good variety of foods. On the non-diet days it doesn't mean you can eat anything and everything you want, just try to adopt a more sensible approach to the treats - there are delicious pudding receipes to try too. The fact the diet is only 2 days per week means I'm more likely to stick with it in the long term and hopefully keep the weight off permanently which is something we'd all like to happen. There's lots of common sense advice in here too - there's no magic wand solution and you do need to do some exercise. It also says that just a 5% reduction in weight can result in a drop of 40% of the chances of you getting breast cancer so facts like that are a real inspiration to try it. Obviously I've only been doing it for the week, but I have to say I found the 2 diet days easy to manage and I'm certainly not feeling starving or that I'm depriving myself. I'm a real 'foodie' so if I can do it anyone can!

A great book and idea just don't buy on kindle. The charts are impossible to read and enlargement just blurs them. Would recommend though in paperback.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comparison with Michael Mosley's Fast diet 12 May 2013
By J Hutch
For both Dr Harvie's 2 day diet and Dr Mosley's Fast diet you restrict your diet considerably for 2 days each week whilst you eat more freely for the remaining 5 days. This is great news psychologically; you don't continually feel you are depriving yourself, and the 2 restricted days can feel like a positive challenge that can be done. Essentially this should make the diets easier to stick to for longer than that achieved with normal 7 day a week diets.
The two restricted days on MM's 'Fast' diet may be tougher at first than those on Dr H's diet since on the Fast diet you should restrict yourself to 500 kcal per day (if you are a women & 600 for men) but roughly 1000 kcals if you are following this other diet. However, on Dr H's diet you are encouraged to do the 2 restricted days back to back, whereas there is a gap between fast days on the Fast diet. I found it hard going for the first 4 restricted days on the Fast diet but eventually your appetite reduces and it gets easier. The great news is that appetites seems to be reprogrammed on both diets. Both books give you examples and advice on what you can eat during these days but Dr H's diet is much more prescriptive, tabling how much of each type of food to eat depending on your weight without the need for you to calorie count. It also means that, apart from a substantial reduction in carbohydrates, you are getting a healthy diet, whereas this may not necessarily be the case with the Fast diet if you chose your 500/600 kcals unwisely. Purchasing the paperback rather than the electronic copies is advisable so it's easier to refer to different parts of the book.
Dr Harvie's 2 day diet is also quiet prescriptive on the 5 other days of the week; it tables the amounts recommended by food groups which vary depending on your age, sex and weight.
