I will never actually use any of the recipes in this book. Been doing the fast diet for about 2 months, and wanted some new meal ideas, but the recipes are geared towards the uk, and don't have a clue where I would even begin to get some of the ingredients, never even heard of them. So it was a waste of money for me. The fast diet itself, on the other hand, is working great for me, and would recommend it highly.

Each recipe gives you the calorie count so you are not endlessly looking up each ingredient.
Plus the recipes are filling and full of flavour which helps on the fasting days.

Saves a lot of hassle trying to think up low calorie ,yet tasty. dishes for the fast days. The background information and the list of foods plus calories is very useful too.

If you're an American, I would wait to buy The FastDiet Cookbook, which releases in July. The Fast Diet Recipe Book is certainly interesting, seeing what Europeans call things like arugula (rocket) and zucchini (courgette), but converting all the weights and measures while looking for obscure ingredients like crème fraîche and castor sugar can be a bit of a pain.

Mimi Spencer's recipes are fast, easy and practical for Fast days and would be suitable for a working mum to make for the whole family without making them suffer with her.

Having decided to try the Fast Diet as a means to lower my cholesterol I found that boredom was my biggest enemy. There's just so much vegie soup a soul can take! The Fast Diet Recipe book is quick and easy to read and as each recipe clearly outlines the calorie content it also becomes quick and easy to plan delicious meals for Fast days. In fact I find that I'm looking forward to my evening meal because I know it will be worth hanging out for for most of the day.
It's too soon to know how the cholesterol is going but I've lost a few kgs as has my husband who has decided to give it a go as well.
To take full advantage of the benefits of this recipe book I find that planning my week's meals means that I have all ingredients on hand. This diet is not difficult and certainly not punitive, just don't dare phone at 5.30 on a fast day...there's no way we can delay dinner much past then...well, maybe until 6!
