Dr Mosley in 2012 was slightly overweight and perhaps pre disposed to have diabetes. He decided to search for a solution – a diet – that would help remove this unhealthy trend in his lifestyle. Was it possible to address these serious health issues with changes to diet?

He is a medical journalist and so was able to speak with and interview those scientists and nutrition experts that led to studying the latest research. He put his conclusions to the test on himself in a Horizon program that tried out the theory on fasting. This was our introduction to the concept and benefits of intermittent fasting.

The Mail on Sunday has a four page section with a guide to the theory behind the Fast Diet, how to go about trying the diet and recipes from the new cookbook. See The amazing slimming book every paper wanted

  • Bouillabaisse
  • Allotment soup
  • Ratatouille and toast
  • Lightweight Cottage pie

The 2-Day Diet: Diet Two Days a Week – Eat Normally for Five What is in the book?

The 2-Day Diet: Diet Two Days a Week – Eat Normally for Five *
by Dr Michelle Harvie and Professor Tony Howell

What is in the book?

Dietician Dr Michelle Harvie and oncologist Professor Tony Howell together run Manchester University’s breast cancer prevention centre. Over 12 years of research tracking 1,000 slimmers and then from a study of 34,000 women they discovered a link between being overweight and an increase in cancer risk.

Losing weight and keeping it off is thought to help reduce your risk of breast cancer by 40%. On the new plan, 65% lost weight and kept it off.

  • To follow the plan spend two days consuming protein and vegetables, but no carbohydrates.
  • Then for the next five days follow a Mediterranean style diet.

I can recommend this book – it does have substantial content, not a glossy production – just plain black and white – no pictures. What the diet is, why it is thought to work, how to follow it, menu planners for both sets of days and recipes (one third of the book).

* Before adopting a new diet or change to your eating of any kind – speak with your doctor to ensure there is no risk to your health.

The contents include:

Introduction

  1. Why the 2-day diet  works
  2. Do I need to lose weight?
  3. How to do the two restricted days
  4. How to eat on the five unrestricted days
  5. Making the 2 day diet work
  6. How to be more active
  7. How to stay slim
  8. Meal planners
  9. Recipes for the two restricted days
  10. Recipes for unrestricted days

Based on the evidence from their research, Dr Harvie and Professor Howell concluded that this plan was – a’ clinically proven approach to dieting that can reduce breast cancer risk!’

The new concept of how to eat for 5 days and fast for 2 days, is catching on, however this concept is different. This is a plan that allows you to eat a Mediterranean menu for 5 days and then follow a no carbohydrate plan for 2 days. This approach when followed closely was found to help reduce weight and increase health – protecting against many cancers including breast cancer – no calorie counting and the plan is simplicity to follow.

* Before adopting a new diet or change to your eating of any kind – speak with your doctor to ensure there is no risk to your health.

In the Daily Mail this week:

  • Monday: The diet that will change your life, meal planners
  • Tuesday: How the 2 Day diet can provide protection from cancer, diabetes and heart disease
  • Wednesday: Mediterranean meals for non diet days
  • Thursday: The 2 Day Diet exercise plan

The key to the health promoting diet is thought to be insulin control. When on the diet, tests show that insulin levels drop by 25%. The reduction in insulin levels is the key to cancer prevention. Many people have very high levels of insulin, leading to possible problems with diabetes, heart disease, cancer and even dementia.

As high levels of insulin is thought to stimulate cancer cells particularly in the breast, keeping insulin under control could be the solution.

It is the carbohydrate reduction on two days that kicks in the lowering of insulin.

Other benefits include lower blood pressure, a problem for many. Lower weight and better cholesterol may also be possible effects of the plan.

This is a revolution in healthy eating, easy to follow – but best of all tackles one of our most feared cancers – I lost my mother and father to this disease and only wish they had known what to eat to lower the risk.

Prevention is better than cure!!
I wish you good health and a long life!
