What is this all about? Living well, eating well, and being healthy. How is that possible? This is the Fast Diet by Dr. Michael Mosely of England, as seen on PBS. By restricting calories on Monday and Thursday, you are free to eat as you wish [be reasonable here!] the other days of the week. The ‘fast’ in the name of the diet refers to eating less on the Fast Days, not to how rapidly the weight comes off. You should expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week. More than that is unhealthy. I hope you find the menus to be delicious and filling. And that you, too, will live to see a healthier version of yourself in a few months.
