Good going, Linda.

I know you prefer to write novels, but if you want to make a bit of doe (and a name for yourself), this kind of thing probably offers you a better chance.

Well, perhaps, and it does seem to sell better than my novels, though not well, truth be told. Nothing is selling well just now, but I don't push it aggressively so I'll never be rich. There are lots of 5;2 books out there now, though I think the ones to read are Kate Harrison's, Mosley's, and others like Michelle Harvie's (not so easy to read, though) and Krista Varady's. And mine, of course.

RE: 5:2 Fasting and Fitness Easy Science in Layman's Terms

I've just read this. It's fascinating!

As the author states at the beginning, this book isn't a diet book, it's a book about diet in the broadest sense. The 5:2 diet advocates two fasting days a week, in which a limited calorie consumption of 500 for a woman or 600 for a man is permitted. Apart from the obvious calorie reduction over a week, why would you do this.? The author has a biology qualification and experience of working in a gym and this is fed into the book. It looks not only at the food we put into our bodies but what happens next. Some foods lead to increases or decreases in chemicals in the body, some of which are more desirable than others.

I found this book both interesting and easy to follow and it has periodic hyperlinks for those of us who wish to follow up articles going into greater detail. It boils down to the fact that there's no simple, fool-proof way to drop weight and become fit - or we'd all be doing it. We are given a run-down on some of the currently popular diets and the science behind them. The emphasis here is the supremely sensible one that we are all different but the 5:2 way of eating has so much flexibility that it may well work for a great number of people.
