BEST BOOK ON STARTING THE 5:2 DIET PLAN
on August 15, 2013
If you're looking for an in-depth, "serious" book loaded with facts that make your head spin about the 5:12 Fast diet, look elsewhere. But if you want a quick, light, bright, well-organized, at-a-glance overview of this diet, you really can't go wrong with the "5:2 Fast Diet for Beginners." To the uninformed, the 5:2 diet is a weekly regimen of eating regular for 5 days, and fasting for 2 days on a sparse 500-600 calorie each day.
It can be read in less than an hour and gives you everything you need for a running start. If this quick-start approach appeals to you, this book blows the two dozen other "5:2" books on Amazon off the shelf. Its flexible, easy-to-follow format is a no-brainer for almost anyone's lifestyle and it's filled with dazzlingly delectable recipes for both the 5 and 2-day diet intervals.
