Product Description

Review

Her conversational style is relatable and encouraging... and [the book] lends promise to the possibility of maintaining 5:2 as a lifestyle, rather than merely a temporary stint. (ZEST online)

Some nice recipes - Saag Paneer etc - though there is also a lot of bulking up with the sort of filler that many recipe books use to fill space. We already know that a food processor is useful for er, processing food, and also that a freezer will keep a bag of spinach fresh. We know that you can buy spices singly or ready-mixed.

More significant, though, is that many of these recipes are for *four* people. So for instance, the smoothie recipe which starts the book 'serves 4'. If four of you in the same household are doing the diet, then marvellous - if not, then how are you going to use 1/4 of an avocado, which doesn't keep well? Even if the author assumed that you are doing the diet with your partner, which is possible, she could have given the quantities for 2. As it is, I have to do a fair bit of re-thinking to make these recipes work for one - work which the author should really have done.

I've been following the 5:2 diet for several months now with great success, and for me, the hardest thing has been finding sufficiently varied (and tasty) things to eat on fast days that are within the calorie limit. Kate's book solves this in an entertaining and easy-to-read (and easy to follow) way. Recommended, particularly if, like me, you like tasty food. And I never thought I'd say this, but now I actually look forward to fast day meals.

Having followed the 5:2 diet religiously since Christmas, I must admit I was getting a bit bored of what I had to eat. It's not that the diet wasn't working (I've lost a stone and a half), it's just that I'd run out of inspiration as to what I could eat. So I was extremely excited when it was announced that there would be a 5:2 Recipe Book to go alongside Kate's original diet book.

With a brief introduction and FAQ at the beginning of the book, there's none of the scary science to confuse, in fact this part is only 32 pages long, and is written in a reader friendly way, with the questions that have been asked frequently on the Facebook page, and a very brief introduction. If you want the science behind the diet, and more in depth instructions as to what to do, I'd suggest you buy Kate's other book.

The rest of the book is dedicated to loads of lovely looking recipes with a collection of beautiful photographs in the middle - thankfully there's not too many photos throughout the book (imagine looking at all those food pictures on a fast day!) as well as a handy calorie calculator at the very back.

The recipes are divided into sections: Great Starts (breakfast and brunch ideas), Super Soups, Hot Stuff (curries and other spicy dishes), Comfort Food, Salad Days, 5:2 To Go (packed lunches etc.), 5:2 On Tour (dishes inspired by travel), 5:2 Treats (dessert ideas) and 5:2 Extras (Salad Dressings etc.) and each section has a "5:2 Lives" page which has real life stories as to how 5:2 has affected different people. Great inspiration when you're feeling the fast day slump! Also in each section there are hints and tips as to how to fit 5:2 into your day to day life - from how to feed your family whilst you fast, to what kitchen essentials Kate recommends.

I wanted a book of 5-2 recipes, the ones I had looked at were all a bit pretentious, I don't have money or the taste for some of the things , but in this book its more down to earth, a real persons book, and as a lot of the recipes come together from other people there's a better mix to choose from.

Loved this book. Have read Kate's other _5:2 diet book which got me started and this book continues the journey with more tools and delicious recipe ideas.

I bought this book as, having done 5 2 for a few weeks, I was too reliant on low cal ready meals to stick to my 500 calories a day. So I was looking forward to this. I've only given it 2 stars as I found the recipes impractical - way too many portions, which is difficult to cut down to a single person serving (and I imagine many, if not the majority of, people are following the diet alone in their household). If you don't have a big freezer or a microwave you risk chucking the extra portions away. Or worse, eating them! There are some single portion recipes, just not enough.

4 stars as very useful book if following the 5:2 eating plan as has recipes and tips. Would prefer better indexing to find recipes and ingredients faster, but otherwise really worthwhile as this is the only book you really need to help you with a 5:2 plan.

Great help in planning & buying meals and knowing what calories are in foods! Then tasty recipes to accommodate this.
2 days a week is easier to fit into a lifestyle than a full diet, but also like the idea of the health benefits.
