The Fast Diet: The Simple Secret of Intermittent Fasting: Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, Live Longer Reviews
Intermittent Fasting for the win! The title of this book is a bit misleading, as it's not a diet so much as a strategy for calorie control and health improvement. Like so many others, my husband and I became interested in Intermittent Fasting (IF) after watching Dr Michael Mosley's Horizon/BBC programme Eat, Fast, Live Longer, and this book expands upon the information covered in that documentary. The system is simple- for two days a week, you eat 25% of your daily calories (500 for women and 60 ...more
First off, I've never been on a diet in my life.
I've been a vegetarian for 25 years and eat a healthy varied diet with lots of whole grains, vegetables, dried legumes, etc. but since moving to Paris have been eating way too much in the pastry department.
Like everyone else reviewing this, I saw the BBC Horizon program "Eat, Fast and Live Longer" (search YouTube - it keeps getting posted there) and was really impressed. This book gives details of the science and recommendations on how to manage t ...more
I heard about this book on NPR in a segment featuring a panel of fasting folk including Mosley. I got just a bit more out of this book than the radio play. (What more I got out of it was a better understanding of IGF-1 and how IF [intermittent fasting] reduces it. I further cemented some other ideas, too, like the apparent fact that usual, deleterious effects of dieting -- e.g., muscle loss -- are circumvented by IF.)
I am not the intended audience. What was not obvious before I read it but what ...more
Not just a diet. The science behind the theory is both intriguing and sound. I'm looking forward to trying this approach to better health.
If I could lose weight from reading diet books, I would weigh seven pounds by now.
That being said, this looks like a plan I could live with and possibly even stick to given my short attention-span, my love of cooking, and my extremely limited willpower. I would give the concept 4 stars (especially if it works--I'll let you know), but the book itself, was a little info surrounded by a lot of fluff.
Three stars because it's not really a "book", just a long article cashing in on the success of the TV program. I don't mind that per se -- why can't a life-changing article be worth $11? -- but I think not being honest about that padding it out to book length with page after page of photographs of rice and beans and soups was taking the piss. However, the article that is the meat of the book makes this idea sound fascinating and I'm certainly going to give it a go.
A clear, accessible summary of the current research around the science of intermittent fasting, with an emphasis on the 5:2 diet (restricted calories of 500 for women & 600 for men on two days a week). Answers frequently asked questions regarding how it might make you feel, whether you should exercise and provides suggested meal plans.
Now it's a case of putting the advice into practice...
Convinced me now to put it into action!
