This is a great book for those who don’t believe that Intermittent Fasting works, is sustainable or can become a permanent way of life for them. I read the Kindle version in two sittings and finished reading it at about midnight because I couldn’t put it down. It was like reading an autobiography where the reader becomes totally involved in the life of the author or, in this case, authors. It was honest, open and inspiring and, as a result of the authors’ experiences, the message of perseverance and never giving up could be applied to all aspects of our lives. It is a book for everyone who would like to make peace with food, overcome emotional eating or put dieting behind them, whether they have a lot of weight to lose or just a few pounds or just want to be healthy and maintain their weight. It doesn’t go into all the scientific ins and outs of IF because I don’t believe that was the purpose of the book, but they recommend books that do, including Gin Stephen’s book ‘Delay, Don’t Deny: Living an Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle’ which was the book that got them started on IF. Gin Stephens wrote the foreword to the book.
I enjoyed reading this short book and recommend it to anyone trying to eat healthily and to change their way of life as regards eating ,cooking and caring about their appearance.Their disappointments and varying successes and failures are clearly explained until they Eventually find a way of eating that brings them success.
I felt the book laboured the old life but did not give much attention to the new lifestyle. It did not provide any before or after pictures and referred to a website that no longer exists. It also did not contain any of the science behind IF which was disappointing.
