Finally, The One Diet Plan Anyone Can Stick With!, October 19, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

I have been a type I diabetic for more than 15 years. I normally hate to read a low carb diet book because they don’t use real food that I can find at a local store. If I can’t find the stuff to make the food to eat it than I might as well use the book as a door stop because it sure isn’t going to do me any good.

I love this book because it bluntly states what each low carb high protein diet is and what is is all about with out the hype and crap to glorify them. It has basic recipes that are REAL FOOD that you can find in a store and not just some fancy crap from some weird place you never heard of.

But does it work?

The million dollar question. I finished the book last night and have cut my carb intake down by following a few of the recipes giving in the book…My blood sugar has ranged from 102 to 120 which is down from my usual 200 to 300 range. I am happy to say I dont feel hungry or deprived and I love to eat so that is no small thing!

Over all I think this is one diet book worth the money and a diet plan anyone can stick with.

5 Stars and a plate of bacon!

A Must Read to Shed Unwanted Pounds Healthily!, November 2, 2012

I’ve tried several different diets with little or no success, but this wonderful book by Jennifer Jenkins has opened my eyes to some “secrets” that the other books don’t tell you. Jennifer has taken time and studied each of the popular high protein, low carb diets (including Atkins, South Beach, Paleo and others) and she goes into great detail about what does and doesn’t work. Through her writing, I’ve discovered where I’ve been sabotaging myself diet-wise, and now have effective techniques and solid, well-researched information which is easy to understand. If you’re ready to not only shed those unwanted pounds healthily, but keep them off- then this is a must read. Thank you Jennifer!

This review is from: The 5:2 Diet Book: Feast for 5 Days a Week and Fast for 2 to Lose Weight, Boost Your Brain and Transform Your Health (Kindle Edition)

This book is concise, to the point, easy to read and easy to follow. I have also particularly enjoyed reading her diary entries, which make the whole idea of IF more accessible to a reader.
I have been following the 5:2 diet since January 2nd and it is a real pleasure. It’s actually very gratifying and relaxing for the body to have a break from food. And it is a pleasure to eat again more fully. I have been so much more appreciative of, and grateful for food and taste of things since I started the 5:2 diet. It is an unexpected benefit.

Also what is there not to like about a diet that has supposedly so many health benefits (against chronic disease, cancer, brain fog), with a side effect of weightloss?

This book is very readable, with an English sense of humor (the author is English) and I would recommend it to anyone.

Oh, and BTW, my husband, who does not need to lose weight, has been doing this diet with me, and is also enjoying it very much. I need to lose about 20 lbs, so far have lost 6, that’s in 10 days, and on the 5 non-fasting days I eat whatever I want. Really. As I said I’m appreciating food so much more and that makes me more aware of what goes into my mouth. It’s been, and is, a lot of fun.

A Delightful and Useful Surprise, January 6, 2013

I really didn’t mean to buy this book. I was looking for the book by Dr. Mosley after seeing an article on the BBC. That book was not yet available but I saw this one down below. I didn’t expect much – probably just some airhead without any professional training or actual experience with the method trying to make a few bucks by capitalizing on the publicity of the BBC program and writing a pile of fluff. But, since I had had great success with a similar type of diet plan some years ago, I though I would just have a look and then, probably, write a scathing review.

Well, I greatly underestimated the author and the quality of this book. She is actually a professional writer, although not usually in this field. You can’t believe how much this helps you actually keep on reading the book. She has done a really professional job of giving facts and making them interesting. She intersperses her own experiences (diary notations) and those of others who have also actually used this method with solid descriptions of the method and the science behind it. Towards the end she supplies some recipes for the low calorie days.

Having been through a similar, but not exactly the same, process in the past, I can say that the experiences the author and the others report ring true. Their comments give you a very good idea of what to expect while you are going through this. I lost more than 80 pounds on a very similar plan and kept it all off for about twelve years before I got lazy. This is a plan a body can truly stay on for a very long time. No faddish nonsense here. I still weigh less than I did when I first used this method about 40 years ago but I certainly need to get it back in place again.

There is also a bit of scientific background in this book, which is explained, I think, clearly and exactly. This is not a fluffy approach. She introduces many relevant scientific findings, many very recent, so we can understand better why this approach is likely to help us get our weights down to a reasonable level while also improving our general health. She gives a lot of sound reasons, with scientific explanations, why the intermittent fasting approach is likely to make us much healthier in general, weight loss or not. For those of us trying to lose some weight she makes the very important point, that I have also seen elsewhere, that, as your weight goes down, so do your daily calorie expenditures. So, you must account for this if you intend to keep losing weight at the same rate or just realize that your rate of weight loss will slow down over time if you keep ingesting the same number of calories. There are references and links to other sites so you can read other relevant articles and do calculations easily yourself. These links do not generally go to the primary literature but to other interpreters of it. Nonetheless, as a Ph.D. in a biomedical field, I think these links will be more useful to most readers than the original scientific articles.

One caveat to U.S.A. readers is that the author is British and tends to use their systems of measurement, sometimes mixed up with ours. She quotes weights in stone (1 stone = 14 lbs) and kg (1 kg = 2.2 lbs.) but those do not resonate with most Americans. Her recipes tend to list amounts in grams, which are very precise but not so easily measured on U.S. scales. A gram is only a wee bit, a mere 0.035274 ounces. One oz (which many U.S. scales report, is 28.349 grams, and that’s just by weight. Similarly, you may need to look up some volume conversions. I was pleasantly surprised by the recipes. I haven’t tried them yet but many of them look like things I would actually like, while maintaining the calorie profiles one needs for those low cal days.

Bottom line – this is a really clear and well-written manual for a method I know from my own experience will work to help a person lose weight. It’s true she is enthusiastic about this method, but she makes her case very convincingly and brings the reader along. She seems to be a friend who knows how this all works and is delighted to help us get on with it. I am inspired by her book to get back on this and will update my review as time goes on to let you know if it still works for this old lady.
