The 5:2 Diet Podcast with Kate Harrison Podcast 9: Foodie fasting in France – Belinda Berry’s gourmet 5:2 life
In Podcast 9, Kate interviews Belinda Berry, who turned fasting into a gourmet experience by using the delicious local produce from where she lives in south-west France, to create light but tasty meals. Belinda and her husband Graham have lost 15 kilos each – that’s over 30 lbs - since beginning intermittent fasting in early 2013 – which means she’s now wearing clothes three dress sizes smaller. Even better, Belinda feels much better for it, with better blood sugar and cholesterol results… and a whole new attitude to her passion for cooking, which led to her publishing her own cookbook, 5:2 Healthy eating for life.
So listen to the interview now to hear about how a huge Hawaiian shirt kicked off their weight-loss journey, and also how curries, cinnamon, and even ice-cream feature on the menu chez Berry.
