I find that if I can hold out and not eat until late in the day, I am much more likely to be able to complete the fast for the day.
The recipes in this book look delicious and do require some time to prepare.
What I especially liked about how the author presented the information is that many of the recipes are complete 500-600 calorie meals, so if you can avoid eating until the late afternoon, and spend time in preparing the recipe, the entire recipe can be consumed and you will have met your goal.
This is probably obvious to many, but I didn't realize until recently that the secret to success with this type of fasting is the ability to eat your meal of the day as late as possible in the day. Eating two or three meals in a day only stimulates your appetite, and I found that I couldn't maintain discipline to get through the day if I ate even a small amount of food.
Not only does it tell the positive effects intermittent fasting causes through detoxifying, and the physical and physiological effects of certain foods, but also includes the positive and negative side effects with educational direction on what to monitor and how to handle it.
The writing style is simple and creative, yet direct. The Author's message on the benefits of intermittent fasting is very clear, yet in depth scientifically, medically, physically, and mentally.
My thoughts on thinking diet food had to be so bland, with limited variety, and strict regimens, went out the window when I saw the meal plans and recipes in this book. I mean beef, pork, chicken, bacon dressings, wonderful vegetables and pastas and soups that should be in some, well known, chef's books. It not only has snacks to complement certain cravings you may have on your fasting or hunger days, it had me making a grocery list as soon as I saw pancakes and cookies.
Being the knowledge sponge that I am, I was so intrigued at the list of physical ailments and diseases that can be either avoided or changed with the smallest differences in our diets. I also commend the Author on the consideration of both men and women, both physically active persons and not so active, without being bias, prejudice, or judgmental. I highly recommend this book to all.
