Fast for 16 hours a day and lose weight. The health benefits of intermittent fasting are indisputable, and 16:8 is the easiest fasting method for weight loss. The 16:8 Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle Plan combines the latest nutritional research with simple tips and a wealth of inspiring meal ideas to help you bring intermittent fasting into your everyday life.

Jaime Rose Chambers is a practising dietitian who sees countless patients looking for advice on how to manage their weight. She prescribes intermittent fasting as the easiest and most effective tool for weight control available. This indispensable plan has everything you need to know about intermittent fasting, including:

- the latest science on 16:8, showing how intermittent fasting can not only help you control your weight, but also helps lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure and protect against heart disease

- 50 delicious, nutritionally replete recipes

- advice on how to set up a personalised fasting program that suits your lifestyle and individual health needs

- meal plans to help you incorporate fasting into your week.


I first heard about intermittent fasting in late 2020 when my sister-in-law said she was giving it a try. I decided to do the same and made a start, but with Christmas and then a manic start to the new year it had dropped by the wayside. So, when I saw this book available for review, I jumped at the chance to give it another try. In The 16:8 Intermittent Fasting and Lifestyle Plan, Chambers begins with an overview of the latest science and health benefits behind IF before offering suggestions on different ways it can be adapted for a variety of lifestyles. The book then closes with a series of suggested meal plans and recipes. Whether you are new to IF or simply looking for further inspiration, this book provides a wealth of background information and useful tips to set you on the right track, all nicely laid out and easy to follow. It gets 4.5 stars from me.

I received this book as a free ARC from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.
