    The Fast Diet Cookbook features the method of Intermittent fasti

    The Fast Diet Cookbook features the method of Intermittent fasting (5:2 diet), which claims to have many benefits to your health, including the cleansing of toxins. The appeal for this diet, versus other fads, is that one can resume normal eating habits if they want to, except for those two days in which they are encouraged to follow the Fast Diet Cookbook recipes, which contain fresh ingredients that are easy to prepare and full of nutrients to get through the day. Ideal for people who want to steer toward reduced calorie intake as a form of weight loss versus a demanding exercise regimen.

    Book Title: The Fast Diet Cookbook Author/Publisher: Rockridge P

    Book Title: The Fast Diet Cookbook
    Author/Publisher: Rockridge Press
    Copyright: JUNE, 2013
    ISBN Print: 978­62315­165­2

    My rating: 5/5
    This book captivated me from the first page to the last as soon as I opened it.
    The Author first got my attention with the “new to me” concept of intermittent
    fasting. Gaining the knowledge of the well researched information on the
    health benefits of incorporating 2 non-­consecutive days of intermittent fasting
    into the 5:2 diet was so enlightening. As I read so many positive effects it has
    physically, mentally, and emotionally on the body, the Author managed to entice
    me through every page wanting to learn more. With well executed, Monthly Menus
    utilizing the low-­calorie, mouth watering recipes, this book can only be a successful
    tool in the most controlled, yet effortless and most educational, without the boring
    regimen diet I have ever been this excited to start. If I couldnt fast or diet for some
    reason, my review rating would still remain a 5/5 just for the knowledge the Author
    has brought to the table...no pun intended. Happy eating!

    The Fast Diet Cookbook: Low-Calorie Fast Diet Recipes and Meal P

    The Fast Diet Cookbook: Low-Calorie Fast Diet Recipes and Meal Plans for the 5:2 Diet and Intermittent Fasting is not actually about losing weight quickly but about the idea of fasting. The first half breaks down the concept very nicely by providing health benefits and providing statistical backup as to why this diet works. The second half breaks daily meal plans down to make everything easier and easy to follow.

    This book will introduce to you a new form of fasting that you’d probably hit yourself over the head wondering why you haven’t thought of it! It’s a simple adjustment to your boring old routine of fasting with much more rapid results. The author also goes through the trouble of providing many low calorie recipes, and surprisingly for foods that I already tend to eat on a regular basis!

    Intermittent fasting is a weight-loss strategy avoid the usual dieting pitfalls: frustrated hunger and listlessness. By cutting calories once or twice a week, we can burn fat and gradually change our eating habits. The book offers menu plans and some tasty, simple recipes to sustain us on fast days. The recipes for “normal” days are less useful, and the scientific discussion that opens the book is a bit tentative, but overall this is a promising guide to sustainable weight loss.

    The recipes in this book are so flavorful and satisfying you'll forget they are low-calorie. The great thing about
    the Fast Diet is that you don't have to feel as though you're sacrificing taste, even on fasting days. The Fast Diet 
    is based on the concept of two non-consecutive fasting days coupled with five days of sensible eating each week. 
    This makes dieting simple and, if you follow this plan, weight-loss is practically guaranteed.

    The Fast Diet Cookbook suggests a new diet twist called ¿Intermi

    The Fast Diet Cookbook suggests a new diet twist called “Intermittent fasting”. I admit I was not convinced (at first) to consider “intermittent fasting” as a possible diet option that would work for me. I was not convinced by language that was too vague about the science behind the fasting; too many phrases like “studies suggest” and “may indicate”. But I did like the suggestion that it “can improve your eating habits (by) changing the way you look at food”. I can see where it would help identify issues with my eating habits and maybe even be inspired to change the poor ones. For example, I love making Jiffy brand Blueberry muffins, but the book has a recipe for Lemon Blueberry Muffins that gets rid of the saturated fats and refined sugars that I don’t need.

    This is a great cook book.  And then it also has a fantastic section about using the recipes to diet.  The recipes include vegan, seafood and meaty goodness.  Also, there are meals of 100 calories that still have bacon.  Somehow a diet can taste good.  There is a great section for referencing low-cal quick snacks.  I’m tired of always being hungry when I’m trying to lose weight; this book will definitely help.

    This book is loaded with recipes and calorie counts to help you stay within range during fasting. While the book does explain intermittent fasting, the strength is definitely in the amount of recipes that it contains, the practical list of ingredients for the recipes, and the suggested meal plans for fast days. I would definitely recommend.

    Interesting theory on how to lose weight without totally giving up the foods I love.
    The one month plan is all laid out with the foods to consume on fasting days and non-fasting days,
    so it is easy to follow. There are a variety of recipes for the breakfast, lunch and dinner – most with
    fewer than 200 calories per serving.  There is also a list of 50 foods that are 50 calories or less – great
    for snacks!
