One of the hottest diet trends: Intermittent fasting (IF), which involves alternating between eating normally and fasting one or more days a week. Advocates of this approach say that it can enhance your health and extend your life while speeding up weight loss and fat loss. In an exclusive interview, the celebrity author of "The 5:2 Diet Book: Feast for 5 Days a Week and Fast for 2 to Lose Weight, Boost Your Brain and Transform Your Health" explained how it works.

Kate Harrison came up with the concept for her book when watching a BBC show about how fasting "could encourage your body to repair damaged cells, cutting the risk of cancer and heart disease, and even improving brain function." Determined to lose weight both for her health and appearance, Kate decided to try fasting.
"I found the fasting days - in fact, not a total fast but cutting down to 500 calories for women and 600 for men - much easier than I thought. Even better, it revolutionized my attitude to eating and appetite. For the first time in my life, I only eat when I'm hungry," exclaimed Kate. "And I've lost 20 pounds." The results from her readers are even more impressive, both in terms of the ease of fasting days and how much they are losing, with some reporting losses of 40 pounds and more.
"In fact, knowing the difference between eating because you're hungry, or eating out of boredom or for emotional reasons, is so useful. I've found that eating this way has completely changed how I eat," adds Kate. The plan offers a flexible approach, so that those already at their ideal weight can follow it for health reasons by fasting just one day a week.
