The latest diet craze:  The FAST Diet
The latest diet craze: The FAST Diet

If you could eat anything you wanted for FIVE days, then fast for two…would you?

That’s the premise behind the hottest diet fad in England…and it’s now here in the U.S.!

The diet comes from a book called “The Fast Diet”…it’s been a best-seller in the U.K. ever since it was published in January and it’s now for sale here.

It seems pretty simple:  You eat whatever you want five days a week…BUT the other two days you can barely eat ANYTHING…less than 600 calories for the entire day!

Dr. Michael Mosely is the author of the book who swears it’s healthy and it works, because switching from heavy eating to fasting immediately takes your body into hardcore fat burning mode.

He tested the diet on himself and lost 20 pounds in nine weeks plus his cholesterol and overall body fat level also went down which can lower the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Of course, like all fad diets, it doesn’t SOUND like it’s a good, safe, or healthy way to lose weight.

The National Health System in Britain issued a warning saying, quote, “there is a great deal of uncertainty about intermittent fasting with significant gaps in the evidence.”

So…is the “Fast Diet” for you?
