1.0 out of 5 stars Plagiarism 2 Jan 2013
As the publisher of Michael Mosley's Fast Diet I am alarmed to see that James Drummond has lifted large sections of text from both Michael Mosely's article in the Daily Telegraph and from his BBC Horizon Programme without consent. Beware!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment 13 Jan 2013
By Esme

This is more of a big pamflet than a book, with just 130 pages that can be read in 1 hour. It is basically a review of Michael Mosley's documentary, without any original material contributed by the author. There are some useful recipe suggestions, but nothing you can't think up yourself by looking into what calories foods have.

you don't really need to buy this book. Soon after watching the Horizon programme about fasting, my husband decided to give it a try, following the very basic guidelines gleaned from the programme i.e. for two days per week (not necessarily consecutive days)he eats only 20% of his recommended calorie intake, being 500 calories. He's been doing this for 3 months now, and has lost over 20 pounds. He is absolutely delighted, as he could never be bothered with a "diet" which required him to count calories or be constantly vigilant about what he eats. Another 5 pounds and he will be down to the weight he was when we met 11 years ago. Personally, it's not something I could manage - food preparation and planning is a big part of my life, and unavoidable with two small children. But is suits him, especially as he plans his fasting days for busy work days, and he can relax and eat what he likes the rest of the time. I have given this book 5 stars because I don't want to adversely affect the rating of a book I haven't read. But if you're keen on this idea, just do it. You don't need a book to show you how.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy! 28 Nov 2012
By Amy R

I was really looking forward to receiving this book as I've been really interested in the 5:2 diet since watching the Horizon programme. But as I started to read it, I got a huge sense of deja vu, like I'd read it somewhere before....and yes a quick google search made me realise that big chunks of the book have been copied and pasted off the internet. For example the recipes are from Easy Living. Surely they can't do that?

This book is rubbish, entirely worthless. I don't usually hold Amazon responsible for a book's content but this superficial book is PUBLISHED BY AMAZON, clearly intending to cash in on the new-found popularity of the subject. If you want to learn something helpful about this legitimate and unusual approach to health, read "The Alternate-Day Diet" by the two American doctors who did the original investigation and published their findings in 2008, James B Johnson & Donald R Laub, Sr.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Great Little Book! 29 Nov 2012
By Jo C
Tired a load of diets over the years but I have read so much about this 5:2 diet. Started it about 2 weeks ago, felt i wasn't doing that well on it, then I saw this book!
It's just great, it helps you understand what you are trying to do but doesn't get to confusing. Straight forward and a nice little read when you are thinking about the week ahead and your eating plans. Great diet, or maybe way of life going forward. You don't feel you are on a diet at all. I have lost 4lbs and everything feels much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, Rapid Results! 29 Nov 2012
I've actually been doing the 5:2 for 4 weeks now, but when I saw this book come out I felt I could use a bit more info on how best to move forward and make it work in the long term. It covers a lot in a clear concise way and without a lot of the technical or medical lingo and repetition that I think a lot of other diet books seem to rely on. I've lost 8lbs so far and am defintiely keeping this up - I'd recommend this diet, and this great little book, for anyone looking to lose weight and feel better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Diet Inspiration !! 29 Nov 2012
I thought this was a great little book and had lots of interesting information on how the diet works and how best to approach it. Yes, it does echo what was in the Horizon programme, but that’s the whole basis of the diet so I’d be a bit concerned if that was missing. I’ve read a few of the author’s diet studies in various health magazines and was delighted when this book finally came out. I’d say it’s a definitive guide for anyone interested in the 5:2 diet!
