I lost 9lbs in three and a half weeks, sticking to the diet two days each week as instructed - and eating as normal on the others. I felt so empowered that I gave up smoking too. I am off on holiday now and plan to lose another 9lbs on my return. This works, and no great sweat !

A good comprehensive book on the benefits on the 5:2 diet. Not only does it explain what you need to do, but it also provides a convincing argument for why we should all do it, as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Great, inspiring book. I watched the superb Horizon programme and wanted to know more. This along with some exercise really worked as a way to lose weight without missing out on any of the foods we enjoy. Lets see how long the will power lasts!

DO IT!!!! I CERTAINLY HAVE MORE ENERGY, FEEL HEALTHIER. It's worth looking at Dr. Mosley's BBC programme too - then the scientific basis for the book seems both compelling and, actually, obvious.
