I liked this better than the 5:2 book I have. It will be a reference to begin this type of diet. ( )

Too much self promotion for a book that short. ( )

Highly recommended - by me. Basic idea works and is highly adaptable by the individual person. ( )

I loved the book and believe that fasting a couple times a week is an amazing way to stress the body in a good way; however, I have been terrible at follow through. Thanks for the reminder, Goodreads! I need to get back on the wagon! ( )

First words
Over the last few decades, food fads have come and gone, but the standard medical advice on what constitutes a healthy lifestyle has stayed much the same: eat low-fat foods, exercise more . . .and never, ever skip meals.
