"This new book is full of fascinating information and is incredibly readable. I picked it up in something of a post-Christmas haze and couldn't put it down." Dr Andrew Bailey, Fellow of the Royal College of General Practioners "An important, easy to follow book which is full of surprising and effective weight loss tips. It should change a lot of lives for the better." Professor Desiree Silva, University of Western Australia "Dr Mosley, one of the world's leading writers covering nutrition and health, does it again with a very informative and entertaining book. " Dr Valter Longo, Director of the University of Southern California Longevity Institute "This diet changed my life. I lost 16kg (35lbs) in the first 8 weeks and I've lost another 6kg (13lbs) since. I was a borderline diabetic but I'm not anymore, in fact I'm healthier than I've ever been." Denise Bach, aged 51 "I lost 40lb and I'm now a size 10. I feel so much better. This approach is now part of my daily life." Penni Cuthbert, aged 33 "Not so much a diet as a new way of living. I've followed Michael's advice ever since my third bout of cancer and I have not looked back" Patrick McIntosh, who at the age of 58 became the first man to walk to the South Pole after surviving surgery for bowel, skin and prostate cancer.
