Synopsis:

The original intermittent fasting diet – now up-dated and expanded

An easy-to-follow, safe, and science-based alternate-day calorie-restriction program that promotes weight loss and longevity, The Alternate-Day Diet includes the most up-to-date research on calorie restriction and intermittent fasting as well as additional techniques (including supplementation and eating according to the bodys natural circadian rhythms) to enhance the diets effectiveness.

The Alternate-Day Diet describes how limiting caloric intake every other day can activate a gene called SIRT1 which reduces inflammation, lowers free radical stress, improves insulin resistance, and most important, causes fat loss by releasing fat cells from around the organs. In short, activating SIRT1 promotes weight loss and longevity.

The simple two-step program calls for you to limit calories one day and eat normally the next and the book outlines lifestyle suggestions to support the diets effectiveness including proper hydration and exercise, which are also key components to maximizing weight-loss.

Throughout, you will be inspired by the anecdotes and testimonials from real people who have used the diet successfully to lose weight, and to find relief from a range of health issues including heart disease, Type II diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and even menopause-related hot flashes.

Synopsis:

The official US edition of the international bestseller—containing US measurements and a month's worth of meals in color.

Is it possible to eat normally, five days a week, and become slimmer and healthier as a result?

Simple answer: yes. You just limit your calorie intake for two nonconsecutive days each week—500 calories for women, 600 for men. You’ll lose weight quickly and effortlessly with the FastDiet.

Scientific trials of intermittent fasters have shown that it will not only help the pounds fly off, but also reduce your risk of a range of diseases from diabetes to cardiovascular disease and even cancer. “The scientific evidence is strong that intermittent fasting can improve health,” says Dr. Mark Mattson, Chief of the Laboratory of Neurosciences, National Institute on Aging, and Professor of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University.

This book brings together the results of new, groundbreaking research to create a dietary program that can be incorporated into your busy daily life, featuring:

• Forty 500- and 600-calorie meals that are quick and easy to make

• 8 pages of photos that show you what a typical “fasting meal” looks like

• The cutting-edge science behind the program

• A calorie counter that makes dieting easy

• And much more.

Far from being just another fad, the FastDiet is a radical new way of thinking about food, a lifestyle choice that could transform your health. This is your indispensable guide to simple and effective weight loss, without fuss or the need to endlessly deprive yourself.
