    Don't starve yourself! The 5:2 Fast Diet for Beginners is the perfect resource to begin a successful fasting and transformative eating plan. The intermittent fasting method of the 5:2 Fast Diet is a safe and easy way to cleanse, detoxify, and lose weight - without going hungry. Unlike starvation diets, which typically fail, the 5:2 Fast Diet balances 5 days of regular eating with 2 days of reduced-calorie meals.

    Story

    This book differs from the full 5/2 diet book and contradicts it. The original 5/2 diet book states you should eat 500-600 calories on your fast days and eat normally on the other days. This book says to lower your calories some percentage on all the days, and then also have the fast days. This is NOT what the original 5/2 recommends at all. I can see lots of ways this would defeat the purpose by making it really difficult. It would be like being on a regular diet (hard enough) and then having two days where you fast (harder) and then going back to (difficult) regular diet. I think you would probably slow your metabolism with the dieting all the time and start feeling really deprived. The whole point of the 5/2 is that you do not slow your metabolism because you are not dieting all the time and your metabolism doesn't get used to less calories, and you get all the benefits of fasting because it is not hard to do it only two days a week knowing you will not be deprived tomorrow!

    The key to weight loss isn't calories. It isn't fat. It isn't protein. It isn't even carbs. You can count them, cut them, and swap them all you want, but you won't lose weight if you're eating foods that your body can't tolerate. And the most common diet foods - like egg whites, wheat bread, and fat-free yogurt - are some of the worst offenders. These "healthy" foods are actually making you fat! In this book, celebrity nutritionist and fitness expert J. J. Virgin pinpoints the 10 foods that sabotage weight loss. Just by eliminating these 10 diet saboteurs, listeners will see incredible results.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Virgin Diet to be better than the print version?

    Yes I learned so much while I was driving!


    What other book might you compare The Virgin Diet to and why?

    The Hormone Cure. Both have loads of info and have changed the way I live.


    What does J. J. Virgin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't know


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

    Yes actually, it was that interesting


    Any additional comments?

    I don't understand why the other reviewer said there was not enough info on the foods to replace the 7, she offers tons of ideas and states why they are better for you, and loads of research is cited.
