In this special, 5:2 food and health writer Kate Harrison talks about going green – eating more veggies to superpower your fast days, your weight and your health.

To celebrate the publication of her new book, 5:2 Veggie and Vegan, Kate talks about her own history as a vegetarian since her teens, and her tips on how to max out the plant content of your diet to keep you, and your friendly bacteria, in great shape.

Plus she talks about how she develops recipes and why ‘eating the rainbow’ is the opposite of woo-woo- not to mention her loathing of the idea of ‘clean eating.’

To see recipes from the new book, and see lots of fantastic pictures of mouth-watering food that tastes as good as it looks, go to the5-2dietbook.com/podcast18

This podcast is a summertime special to accompany my new summer e-book 5:2 Summer Ready, which takes favourite tips, recipes and ideas from my four 5:2 books – it’s the ideal short introduction if you’ve never read a book on intermittent fasting. (If you do have my other books, you won’t need this new e-book – but this podcast will be perfect for re-inspiration!). And even if you're in the southern hemisphere, where I know summer is a memory right now, I hope you'll find it useful!

The podcast includes tips on boosting your fasting success; my views on the 'summer body' controversy; ideas for enjoying that summer feeling all-year-round AND, a specially recorded 10-minute meditation (which you can also download and listen to separately).

I recorded the podcast on Brighton beach, just past the West Pier – so you’ll hear authentic wave sound effects, not to mention our giant seagulls! There are lots of tips plus a very special relaxing meditation to help you relax and stay on track with your healthier, more confident life…

 

Go to the shownotes to read more and find links to fitness apps and much more.

You can also download the Meditation separately to use whenever you like.

In Podcast 12, we’re featuring our first dieter from New Zealand, Trudie McCallum. Trudie had spent almost three decades following a variety of diets, losing and regaining up to 100 kg and also spending up to NZ$1000 (around £500) ‘just to get weighed.’ Then in 2013 she discovered 5:2, lost 13kg (28 pounds) and is loving the freedom it’s given her and her husband Kenny, who has also lost 10 kg.

Trudie talks to Kate Harrison about the careful planning that allows her to eat three small meals on a fast day, the improvements she’s seen in her confidence and blood pressure readings, and how she’s spreading the word to others about intermittent fasting. 53-year-old Trudie, who works in retail, is  also a big fan of the 5:2 Facebook group, where people all over the world are sharing their successes.

See how Trudie’s enjoying her new life at www.the5-2dietbook.com/podcast12 - subscribe on iTunes - and download free samples from Kate's books on Amazon. Kate also has news of her summer special podcast and mini Summer Ready e-book new for June 2015.

In Podcast 11, we feature  a remarkable woman who set out to lose 11 stone in weight 15 months ago… and has lost nine stone/57 kilos and gone from a size 32 to a UK size 14… After a lifetime of dieting, Sharon Munsey from Bideford in North Devon had very low expectations when she started doing 5:2, but now she’s gone from a size 32 to a UK size 14 and has just taken up running for the first time, at the age of 54.

Sharon talks to Kate Harrison about how she’s lost her chocolate cravings and fills up on soup and porridge instead, and the thrill of shopping on the high street again after decades of buying ‘big tents to wear’ online. She also reveals how she eats on Fast and non-fasting days, and loves how fast days make her feel.

Sharon’s story is proof you can change your life through intermittent fasting – whether you want to lose 10lbs or 10 stone.  

See her before and after photos – they’re so inspiring, from her trim new shape to her newly emerged cheekbones!  - at www.the5-2dietbook.com/podcast11 or subscribe on iTunes - and download free samples from Kate's books on Amazon.
