Burn Fat Fast is quite simply the easiest, healthiest and most effective way to lose weight. Alternate-day dieting, which involves taking in a very low amount of calories on alternate days, is all the rage - this diet takes it to a whole new level.

In this book Patrick Holford outlines how, by combining elements of alternate-day fasting with a low glycemic-load (GL) diet, you can lose fat fast, without going hungry or compromising your health. For those new to the low-GL diet it is a way to keep you blood sugar even. Why do this? Because if your blood sugar level resembles a rollercoaster ride you'll have a lot of insulin in your system - and insulin is the fat-storing hormone. In Burn Fat Fast you'll find:

* Simple, easy-to-follow guidelines on how the diet works
* An outline of what to eat and what to avoid on both phases of the diet
* Guidance on fitting the diet into your lifestyle
* A short, highly effective fat-burning exercise routine developed by former Gladiator and Olympic athlete Kate Staples

And if you need any more encouragement, consider this: as well as encouraging the storage of fat, insulin promotes disease and ageing, so by combining a low-GL diet with alternate-day fasting you will not only lose fat fast but also improve your health and longevity.

Review quote

'I lost twelve pounds in four weeks and have more energy now that I have had in twenty years. I feel like a new woman. I'd definitely recommend this low-GL diet, alternate-day fast approach. It's easier than you think' Dr Eleanor D


Most people are programmed to gain weight, especially around the middle, but you can switch on your own 'skinny genes' with two simple changes to your diet, and an eight-minute exercise regime. Burn Fat Fast rolls these three weight-loss secrets - alternate-day dieting, a low-GL diet and fat-burning exercise - into one dead-easy and highly effective plan. The result is you lose fat fast eating less every other day.

What you eat is as important as how much and when you eat. This low-GL (glycemic load) diet cuts your need to make insulin, which in turns switches on genes that help you burn fat fast. Coupled with a simple eight-minute exercise regime devised by exercise expert Kate Staples, a former Gladiator and athlete, you'll lose belly fat fast and look leaner in days. And to make it even easier you can follow the exercise routine online.
Burn Fat Fast is the easiest and fastest way to lose weight, look good and gain health and longevity - without having to be a saint every day.
