The “fast diet”, does it work? Is it possible to eat normally for five days a week then fast, not in the traditional sense, for two days and become slimmer and healthier as a result? Will this diet really reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer?
 
 
 
 
Well if you believe the studies than the simple answer is Yes. Just by limiting your calorie intake for two nonconsecutive days each week, 500 calories for women and 600 for men, you’ll lose weight quickly and effortlessly with the FastDiet.

Scientific trials of intermittent fasters have shown that it will not only help the pounds fly off, but also reduce your risk of a range of diseases from diabetes to cardiovascular disease and even cancer. “The scientific evidence is strong that intermittent fasting can improve health,” says Dr. Mark Mattson, Chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences, National Institute on Aging, and Professor of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University.

This book brings together the results of new, groundbreaking research to create a dietary program that can be incorporated into your busy daily life, featuring:

• Forty 500 and 600 calorie meals that are quick and easy to make

• 8 pages of photos that show you what a typical “fasting meal” looks like

• The cutting-edge science behind the program

• A calorie counter that makes dieting easy

• And much more.

Far from being just another fad, the FastDiet is a radical new way of thinking about food, a lifestyle choice that could transform your health. This is your indispensable guide to simple and effective weight loss, without fuss or the need to endlessly deprive yourself.

  2. Interesting, but as is the case with other diets as well, I have trouble buying it. I think the stats are probably right but what they don’t tell you is what happens when the diet is stopped & regular habits resume. It’s so hard not to get caught up in these trendy things because we all want a simple and easy fix but the bottom line is that everything in moderation & eating in accordance with the food pyramid along with an active lifestyle is probably the best way to go.
    Thanks for sharing though….interesting stuff!

    • You’re very welcome. I tend to agree with your thinking to a degree, but I think everyone should be informed and come to their own conclusions.

      I guess I should’ve clarified in my post that the diet is more of a

        life style

      change than a diet. You never really go off of it.
      You still need to do some sort of exercise, whether it’s walking, running or whatever you like to do you should incorporate it into the diet plan.

      The health benefits of this diet is what amazes me. I have a family history of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart
      disease, losing weight is just an added benefit for me. Anything I can do to stay off medication is a plus in my book.

  3. fast diet? really? I’ve tried some diet tips and so on however right now the only thing that somehow worked for me is Mediterranean diet. Can you differ which of the two is ore effective?

    • Unfortunately I can’t. I have not read anything about the Mediterranean diet. I am a big believer in different diets for different people. I myself do really well on low carb diets. After watching the documentary about this diet (unfortunately the BBC has now blocked the video from being viewed, it use to be on youtube.com) it seems to me it works well for people who have been diagnosed with multiple issues. In the documentary initially Mr. Mosley was diagnosed with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and borderline diabetic. After following this diet for a period of time all diagnosed issues were in the normal range. That’s enough for me to at least give it a try.

  4. It maybe true that this diet might work but I personally think that a good amount of exercise combined with a healthy diet is the best way to reduce weight.

    • I agree. I tried to find the video I watched before I posted this, but now the BBC has blocked it. Mr. Mosley’s whole idea is to exercise and eat right. It’s not a license to eat badly 5 days a week. I know weight lose is a big issue for a lot of people, including myself. I ONLY post items I believe in. I’ll keep searching for the video and post it if I find it.
