The book is very simple and short -- because no lengthy explanation is needed. Keep your total calorie intake to 500 calories (for women) on two non-consecutive days per week, and eat normally the other five days. She provides many very tasty-sounding recipes for the two "fast" days. Love the idea and I look forward to giving it a try. Of particular interest to me, was the reference to a study which found that those eating low fat diets for the 5 non-fast days lost no more weight than those eating a typical high-fat American diet for the five days. How easy to manage your will-power for one "fast" day at a time, knowing you can "feast" the next day! And research so far shows great positive health effects regarding the heart and diabetes....

I am now a few weeks into the 5:2 eating plan. I love it! I have lost 6 pounds in one month - and I skipped two of the scheduled fast days due to vacation/holidays. On non-fast days I have eaten anything I want -- pizza, Mexican restaurant, bologna, mayonnaise, white bread, desserts.... Could not ask for a better plan. Love only restricting myself two days per week and losing weight! As I lose weight, however I am feeling a bit more motivated to lower my calorie intake on some of the non-fast days. We will see how that goes.... I feel so much lighter and the fast days are a really great day for me. Feel healthy and lean. I want to lose just over 20 more pounds to be back at a comfortable weight for me. I think this is a plan I can easily do long term. Very pleased.

The plusses are that Ms. Whitehart offers lots of variety and a very well-indexed, easy to search format.

The minuses are that the recipes are sort of low-cal versions of common English dishes. If you like English food you'll be very happy. If, like me, it is not your favorite cuisine -- you'll be less happy.

I almost didn't buy this book because of the reviews saying there's no serving size and the measures are in grams, liters and such, rather than U.S. measures. Then I checked Amazon's return policy, and sure enough, Amazon's customer-centric policies came through, with easy, fair-term return...so I bought it, keeping another tab open to "manage my Kindle" and a finger on the "actions" button there, so I'd be ready to send the book back and get an instant refund if what these serving/measurements issues proved true of this edition.

I'm happy to say they proved untrue, for the American Kindle edition I just bought here at Amazon.

All the measurements were in U.S. measurements (I can't be bothered to do the conversions every time I use a recipe, so that'd have been a definite deal-breaker for me), and each recipe says how many people it's intended to serve.

I haven't tried any recipes yet, since I just got the book, like, a nanosecond ago, but will add to this review when I try a few of them (assuming I remember). I just wanted to get this review written now, lest someone else be dissuaded from buying the book out of concern about those two issues.

I really don't know how many stars to give the book given that, as I say, I haven't tried the recipes.

I ordered 2 Fast Diet recipe books. Both had no index, and many of the measurements were in grams and Kilograms, which I couldn't relate to. While this one did give me a few good ideas, it wasn't all that helpful.

I have been on the fast diet for 7 weeks and have lost 4 inches off of my hips and 4 inches off of my waist. I failed at my last 3 diets so I an thrilled at the results so far. It is not hard to stay on track when you know you can eat what you want tomorrow. Funny thing is when tomorrow gets here you don't want to eat as much of whatever it is you craving as you thought you would yesterday.

This book has good information on the diet plus some very good and easy recipes. I'm so glad I found this edition with the US ingredients and measurements. Very motivational. I'm sold on the diet and it really works. I lost 6 lbs. the first 2 weeks!

I have tried so many diets in my life but this is the one that beats them all. The main reason is, apart from the health aspects, which are vast, particularly with this diet, the fact that you only think about it twice a week, on days of your own choosing, the other five days belong to you and your regular eating habits.
It's really easy when you know, on the day of your fasting (600calories for a man and 500 calories for a woman.) the next day you can resume your normal eating habits. Theoretically, you should be absolutely starving the following morning, amaxingly, you are not and so you continue to lose weight and gain health benefits. It's all explained in this small book. It even has a 5 day diet plan for Women and men. Of course you don't have to follow that exactly as long as you eat only the required amount of calories.
Nothing could be simpler!
