5:2 Your Life – get happy, get healthy, get slim
What would you like to change in your life?
More time with friends and family? A more satisfying job? Better health and more energy? A closer connection to the place where you live and a feeling that you make a difference?
We’re all so busy that sometimes tackling the changes we know we should make feels daunting, even impossible.
But small changes can make a huge difference. And that’s what 5:2 is all about – taking simple steps, on just two days per week, which will have a powerful ripple effect on your whole life. The 5:2 Diet has already transformed the lives of thousands of men and women all over the world.
Now Kate Harrison, bestselling author of The 5:2 Diet Book and The Ultimate 5:2 Recipe Book, has taken her knowledge and experience to turn the diet into 5:2 Your Life: get happy, get healthy, get slim. An inspiring six-week plan will help you take control of the things that matter most to you, from your relationships, your work, your health, your leisure time and the dreams you’ve been neglecting. There’s even a brand new eating plan to help you lose weight too – with exciting recipes and guidelines on eating the 5:2 way for the rest of your life.
Small changes, big dreams – why 5:2 Your Life is no ordinary ‘self help’ title
5:2 Your Life is packed with ideas, challenges, activities and psychological insights into the most effective ways to help small changes transform your life. As with her other books, Kate Harrison charts the highs and lows of her own 5:2 journey with absolute honesty - and her realistic, humorous approach cuts through the self-help jargon.
The plan includes six weeks of challenges that are personalised to help you identify the areas of your life that need shaking up – and to make the good bits, even better! Each week, there’s a different theme – with activities and tasks to help you achieve what you want.
Alternatively, if you have a major goal in mind already, like giving up smoking or changing your career, the DIY 5:2 Option can help you achieve it
Even the busiest person will be able to find enough time to try the enjoyable, energising activities – and 5:2 Your Life also includes a six week eating plan that complements the lifestyle challenges. You can choose to do them together, or separately – it’s up to you.
The 5:2 Your Life Plan takes you through a series of activities to help you identify the changes that will benefit you most – and work out how to achieve them. The ideas and tasks are practical and proven, offering creative ways to help you feel happier and healthier. The activities are backed by scientific and psychological research – but they’re broken down into manageable chunks that won’t make unrealistic demands on your precious time.
The 5:2 Eating Plan has all the information to help you start the 5:2 Diet – along with a set of fresh new recipes for your fast days, plus extra guidance on eating well all week long.
What are you waiting for? It’s time to 5:2 Your Life. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

And bought the book as soon as I'd read the sample!
The author's style is one I find particularly appealing, and just the first few activities seemed so much fun, and so potentially useful, that I really wanted to read the full thing.
It's so well set out: I love the idea of committing to the 5:2 way of eating and an "improve your life" plan at the same time, and having them work in complement to each other.
I've only just begun the activities, but I've already found some amazing tips. I love the Pomodoro Technique, the Whirlwind List, and the Pleasure List, and I'm looking forward to getting to better grips with my dreams and goals.
Oh, and the Diet section of the book has some gorgeous new recipes I want to try out!
I haven't done the 5:2 diet, but the concept sounds more appealing to me than any other diet plans I've come across. And I really like the way Kate has applied this idea towards changing your life. Change, big change, can be hard, which is why so many New Year resolutions are broken after just a few weeks, and so breaking it down into small, manageable, fully explained segments is a great idea. I like the way the weeks are themed, taking you on a journey as you investigate your life, how it is now, what you might want to change and, more importantly, why you want to change it. There are plenty of options rather than a rigid 'you must do this' approach and, as I said, it's written in such an approachable way that you feel like Kate is just one of your friends, helping you out.
Although I haven't begun to try the different activities yet there are already some which really captured my imagination - using timers and having a whirlwind tidy up stand out for me as being instantly useful. Kate has researched all the ideas fully, citing any relevant studies and making her own useful observations.Read more ›
The 5:2 part of the title is misleading. The book is actually a hot-potch of various tools and techniques to create change in your life and, as such, is very similar to countless other self-help books. The style is easy, chatty and encouraging.
Given my circumstances and life stage, most of the exercises were irrelevant to me, however I imagine for some readers, particularly those who have not previously tried to take a step back, and think of ways to improve their lives, it could be very helpful. At the current price of £1.99 it's great value for anyone who is tempted.

I don't think the 5:2 diet really helps. It doesn't teach you how to eat properly and healthy. I didn't expect the book to be like this, that is the reason I gave three stars only. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Maite
