'This new book is full of fascinating information and is incredibly readable. I picked it up in something of a post-Christmas haze and couldn't put it down.' Dr Andrew Bailey, Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners

'I lost 40lb and I'm now a size 10. I feel so much better. This approach is now part of my daily life.' Penni Cuthbert, aged 33

I am only 4 days into it and have a gut feeling that this is it, after at least 20 years of trying unsuccessfully to lose weight. Like much modern medicine most diet plans treat just the symptoms. This diet treats the cause. I am nearly 60 and was at the cusp of resigning myself to being fat until I die.
I have tried more diet regimes than you have fingers to count them on, plus a few I made up myself. So I can confidently say that this time I have feelings of relief (finally) and confidence that my obesity sickness is being cured.
If the diet sounds harsh, it is but it is also surprisingly easy!
I am now enjoying every bite of my delicious food with no desire to keep on eating all day, no more fear of feeling hungry, and no more carrying snacks in my handbag "just in case"
Thank you Dr Mosley
I lost a stone in three weeks going from 14.5 stone to 13.5
Then I lost the plot a bit over a couple of birthday celebrations and put 3lb back on. However it's been easy to get back on track. And I've started losing weight again.
Michael Mosley has used the experience and knowledge gained over the last few years since The Fast Diet (5:2) plus I finished the book feeling quite motivated to get started.
In summary, if you've got a lot of weight to lose, try:
- 800 calories a day of a Mediterranean-style diet. Review your progress and goals after two weeks and either continue for up to twelve weeks or move to New 5:2.
- 5:2 until you reach your goals.
- Med-style eating in the main for maintenance (maybe with one fast day for health reasons and easier maintenance).
Other recommendations are included, such as time-restricted eating and exercise suggestions.
A lot of it will be familiar if you've read previous books, but it does provide updated research and is definitely worth a read if you want a boost and a little convincing to get started.
As another reviewer has said, there is some encouragement to go to their website. This was the same in previous books but unlike e.g. the blood sugar diet website you can't get to forums and some info unless you pay to go on their 12 week programme.
This latest book refines his advice based on the latest Scientific research. It is focused on the ideas of intermittent fasting (reducing your calorie consumption to 800 or less each day - which is surprisingly easy) and the Mediterranean diet (lots of Olive Oil, fruit and vegetables).
The book is full of plain English explanations of the latest research, and has practical instructions on how to use this diet yourself. There are also a lot of recipes for meals which fit into the diet.
Having used intermittent fasting over the past two years, I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to lose weight or increase their energy levels.
- provided updated information on the latest medical evidence
- added some useful myth-busting information on older "conventional" advice which simply is not supported by any evidence
- added information on Time Restricted Eating
- provides a synthesis on exercise and intensity training, good gut health etc.
It extends the "5:2" concept into a more flexible toolkit of ways to develop eating patterns and habits which can benefit health and weight.
Also, it's an easy, engaging read - so although the amount of new science was not huge (and I've read some current, more in-depth books on the science of healthy eating etc) - I found it reinforcing and motivating and helpful.
I'd recommend it to anyone. Literally anyone, on the basis that few people won't find something in it that could benefit them relative to the Kindle cost of £5 or whatever. Just giving me the motivation to skip one stop at a Coffee Shop saves me that.
