1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed with this book., 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The 5:2 Fast Diet Under 325 Calories Recipes Book: Your Top "50" Low Calories Recipes, Intermittent Fasting Foods, Beverages, Yoga And HIIT To Quick Weight ... Detox (The 5:2 Fast Diet Book For Beginners) (Kindle Edition)
I've been doing the 5:2 or in my case 4:3 diet for months now and it works really well. I've never seen the horizon programme although I would like to, I discovered this diet later than most through a magazine in a waiting room, it was a small article just saying how well it works and the basic rules 500 kcals for 2, but never consecutive days. It seemed almost too good to be true but it does work, I've been away for weekends had meals and nights out, takeaways and still lost weight. I've never actually read a 5:2 book I've just worked out my own path which for me mainly involves soup, after my first couple of 500 days I was starving, not literally I know but still...so I make a large pan of soup which I eat throughout the day, it fills me up and is full of healthy veg. In between this soup I use herbal teas, peppermint in my case to give me a break from water and I try not to have too many diet drinks, this for me works well so I was surprised to find that this book suggests avoiding herbal teas on fasting days. After my mini panic I checked to see if this was a general rule and so I tried the first 6 sites that came up from my search and they all advocated the drinking of herbal teas especially on fasting days. This book also states that the 2 fasting days do not need to be consecutive I was under the impression that they shouldn't be consecutive. A lot of the recipes are aimed firmly at the American market, one example being Sara Lee bread, it also uses foods it's told us to avoid, I was glad this book was free if not I'd be asking for a refund.
