Possibly better in print

This book is excellent and extremely interesting, however because of the nature of the book - with one often needing to skim back to a page - or look up something - I prefer the hard copy that I have on my kindle. Having said that, it is excellent overall because of its attention to the scientific information backing up the theory.

clear and concise

What did you like most about The Fast Diet?

It was very easy to process the whole idea of the 5:2 diet in listening form, and it reiterated what was set out in the book and on the t.v. version very succinctly.

Who was your favorite character and why?

No characters in this book, just Micheal's common sense tone, backed up by Mimi.

What does Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Having read the book i knew the idea behind the premise , but the chapters on the medical side i;e diabetes got my husband who has just been diagnosed with type 2 listening. It somehow was easier to take it all on board.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it is not a long book an although i had to break in the middle went back to it as soon as I could, rewinding it to get the relevant parts repeated

Any additional comments?

Said it all, but thank you Dr. mosley

Awesome intro to a life changing proposition

Have listened to a couple of books on fasting this week. I was a bit mystified by the focus on low fat in this one given the surge in published findings on the benefits of high fat easing of the last decade. Still, this book has been planned superbly. Its content is both accessible and inspirational. It is practical and practicable. And the formats of the different sections stimulated interest throughout. Superb job - very well done - and thankyou!

Interesting.

Any additional comments?

I can see how this book will help many people. Perhaps not super active types due to calorific need and hormones making fasting tricky - but office types absolutely this will really help control weight & health. If you are in a chair all day, a bit older, carrying some health issues and thus cannot exercise much - here is your diet.
