I am very much one of these people that would be classed as a yo-yo dieter. I'm forever in the search for a new way to lose weight. This is a well thought out diet and well written book but however I felt that it didn't do much use.
I stuck to the 5:2 concept for more than a month and while I did feel slightly more energetic on the mornings of my 500kcal days I felt my energy never surpassed the lunch time mark. It may have worked better if I was single or my husband was doing the diet with me but a diet is never harder than when you are watching your other half wolf down a pizza and you're sitting there with grilled chicken and a salad.
Even though I did lose a total of 6 lbs in the month and a bit I stuck to the 5:2 diet and did fit neater into my clothes, the lack of energy at the end of the 500kcal days and the headaches that accompanied them were just too much for me to stick it out. They may have subsided with a more prolonged diet regime but I wasn't willing to find out.
First of all, I found this book incredibly easy reading. I really enjoyed the structure. There is a mix of Kate's personal experiences in the form of hints and tips from her as well as her own diary entries from her journey on this eating plan. There are also personal experiences from others who have tried this system and I found this really useful because there was a decent mix of ages and genders included. There are obviously facts and figures on how and why the diet works but these are laid out really clearly so that, even if you are new to dieting, they are easy to follow. The final section of the book has some ideas on what to eat on 'fast days' and lays out some recipes, some calorie lists and some ideas for structuring your day. (As I write this I'm actually on a fast day so I may be referring back to those in a moment or two).
I really like Kate Harrison as a writer and so obviously the bit I enjoyed the most was the personal experiences from here, the diaries and her little hints and tips! I also like the fact that the book is laid out so clearly, it makes it easy to flip to the section you want to look at, I've already found myself jumping back to a couple of bits for a spot of re-reading. Kate has also written a 5:2 recipe book and I'm definitely considering getting this but I want to establish how the eating plan works first. Like I say this was a quick read and so even if you're considering changing the way you eat and not sure if this is the plan for you, I'd recommend giving this a read!
