Overview

The original intermittent fasting plan: easy to follow, effective, and science-basedThe Alternate-Day Diet is based on scientific and clinical studies that show how restricting calories only every other day activates a gene called SIRT1-the 'skinny' gene-which results in reduced inflammation, improved insulin resistance, better cellular energy production, and releasing fat cells from around the organs to promote weight loss.

This easy-to-follow two step plan will enable readers to enjoy these remarkable and measurable benefits:

• Lose fat easily and quickly without deprivation, discomfort, or stress
? Improve fat metabolism and avoid regaining lost fat
? Slow the aging process
? Find relief from symptoms of asthma, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, and menopause-related hot flashes

The book is very informative and well organized. There are a number of lists and recipes in the book that you would want to print out or copy, but as an ebook that is not a possibility. I would only recommend buying this book as a hard copy. You don't want to take your computer into the kitchen to try a new recipe, or at least I don't. Better to leave your cook books, diet books, craft books, etc. to the paperback or hardcover variety, let the ebooks go for reading only.

I found this diet online, and in only 12 days that I've been following the plan, I've lost 7 Lbs. It's so easy to follow. I am so motivated and I hardly ever finish all my calories on the Up Day. I journal everything I eat, and I plan ahead to make sure I do not exceed my calorie intake on the down days. I usually eat the 20% weight loss mode calories on the down day, but a couple of times I went over to the 35% weight loss mode calories and I still lost weight. I've notice that the more I eat on my up day 'without exceeding my daily calorie amount' the more I loose. I strongly recommend it.

This is the first diet that actually fits my lifestyle! I love being able to eat the food that I like and only have to diet on alternating days. It's so easy to plan outings around this diet and not feel like you blew all your efforts for the week. Try it you'll love it!
