The health benefits of intermittent fasting (IF) are now indisputable. Already proven to be an excellent way to control your weight, thereby reducing the risks of obesity-related illnesses, recent studies have also shown that it can lower cholesterol levels, reduce blood pressure, protect against heart disease and improve glucose control.
Jaime Chambers is a practising dietitian with a clinic full of patients looking for advice on how to manage their weight. As a recent convert to part-day IF, she now prescribes this method as a matter of course, as it's by far the easiest and most effective tool for healthy weight control that she's seen.
This book provides everything you need to know about part-day IF (16:8) and full-day IF (5:2) plus 40 delicious, nutritionally replete recipes. You can tailor the program to suit your lifestyle and individual health profile, and choose which elements suit you best. There are meal plans to help you incorporate fasting into your week, plus real-life success stories that will inspire you to give it a go.

An excellent and accessible approach to the concept of the fast diet. I've personally lost over 30kg in four months using these ideas and principles. Unlike with more strict models, like 5:2, it is easier to maintain over the longer terms, and fits in much better with having a normal active social life. - Jeremy (QBD)
