Thanks - I just ordered the Mosley one for her and will give the link. Quite glad it hasn't expired.

Kieren - the book I have is 'The Fast Diet' by Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer. It explains all the science behind the idea of intermittent fasting, but in a way even I can understand so it is quite accessible! It also has some sample meals/recipes as well. There is a good group on Facebook for the 5:2 as well - quite supportive - so it might be worth her checking that out if she's on FB.
