It's reasonably well written. It clarifies the 5:2 diet which was only briefly mentioned in the documentary. It consists of five normal days a week, and 2 non-consecutive days eating a calorie restricted diet of 500 cal (women) or 600 cal (men). There's a summary of the science behind the diet, and some useful suggestions for people following the diet. (There's also some suggested recipes for the fasting days - which weren't to my taste).
As I'd already been following alternate day fasting for four months when I got this book, it was a little disappointing: I'd already established that intermittent fasting diets work well for me, and was looking for more hard science. In this respect it didn't add enough new content to the documentary. However, I don't regret having bought the book - if only so that I can lend it to people who didn't see the documentary.
For a more detailed description of the medicine behind fat check out the Gary Taubes book "Why We Get Fat" - or watch his Walnut Creek library lecture on YouTube.

I don't like the paper the book is printed on - it is almost like a newsprint and impossible to wipe off if something gets spattered on it.Published 8 months ago by Judi
