Her conversational style is relatable and encouraging... and [the book] lends promise to the possibility of maintaining 5:2 as a lifestyle, rather than merely a temporary stint. (ZEST online)

More significant, though, is that many of these recipes are for *four* people. So for instance, the smoothie recipe which starts the book 'serves 4'. If four of you in the same household are doing the diet, then marvellous - if not, then how are you going to use 1/4 of an avocado, which doesn't keep well? Even if the author assumed that you are doing the diet with your partner, which is possible, she could have given the quantities for 2. As it is, I have to do a fair bit of re-thinking to make these recipes work for one - work which the author should really have done.
With a brief introduction and FAQ at the beginning of the book, there's none of the scary science to confuse, in fact this part is only 32 pages long, and is written in a reader friendly way, with the questions that have been asked frequently on the Facebook page, and a very brief introduction. If you want the science behind the diet, and more in depth instructions as to what to do, I'd suggest you buy Kate's other book.
The rest of the book is dedicated to loads of lovely looking recipes with a collection of beautiful photographs in the middle - thankfully there's not too many photos throughout the book (imagine looking at all those food pictures on a fast day!) as well as a handy calorie calculator at the very back.
The recipes are divided into sections: Great Starts (breakfast and brunch ideas), Super Soups, Hot Stuff (curries and other spicy dishes), Comfort Food, Salad Days, 5:2 To Go (packed lunches etc.), 5:2 On Tour (dishes inspired by travel), 5:2 Treats (dessert ideas) and 5:2 Extras (Salad Dressings etc.) and each section has a "5:2 Lives" page which has real life stories as to how 5:2 has affected different people. Great inspiration when you're feeling the fast day slump! Also in each section there are hints and tips as to how to fit 5:2 into your day to day life - from how to feed your family whilst you fast, to what kitchen essentials Kate recommends.Read more ›
2 days a week is easier to fit into a lifestyle than a full diet, but also like the idea of the health benefits.
