Show synopsis The indispensable companion to the #1 "New York Times" bestselling diet book the FastDiet became an instant international bestseller with a powerful, life-changing message: it's possible to lose weight and reduce your risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, all while eating what you would normally eat five days a week. You simply cut your caloric intake two days a week--to 500 calories for women, 600 for men. But as FastDiet author Dr. Michael Mosley says, "It's not really fasting. It's just a break from your normal routine." This fabulous new cookbook offers 150 carefully crafted, nutritious, low-calorie recipes to enable you to incorporate the FastDiet into your daily life. Ranging from simple breakfasts to leisurely suppers, the recipes are all expertly balanced and calorie-counted by FastDiet coauthor Mimi Spencer (a devotee of the diet herself!) and nutritionist Dr. Sarah Schenker. From soups to meat dishes to delicious fish-based meals, the recipes are designed to fill you up and stave off hunger--even though none is over 500 calories. There are also detailed menu plans and plenty of encouraging tips, including kitchen-cupboard essentials, the latest nutritional advice, and a whole section of speedy meals for busy days. With an introduction to the diet itself-- detailing its many scientifically backed health benefits and the transformative results achieved by hundreds of thousands of readers--this book is an essential follow-up companion guide to the FastDiet. With the FastDiet Cookbook, you will never have to worry about planning your fast days again!
