:dunno:I have "The Alternate-Day Diet" book (J.B. Johnson) and "The FastDiet" (Michael Mosley) - is there any new information in the "5:2 Diet" (Kate Harrison)? In other words, is it worth buying or is it just more of the same????:dunno:

Michael Mosley book came out after Kate Harrison. Kate's book is based of her watching Michael Mosley Horizon program then following his advice (Mosley).

I read her book via Amazon Prime as it can be borrowed if you are a Prime member. As Beth says, it's how the diet worked for her after watching the Horizon program. It is a food diary in parts, research she did in others, and some food ideas as well.

Probably not essential if you have the info already.
However, I really enjoyed reading Kate Harrison's book. I actually felt a bit disappointed with Mosley's book!
Kate's diary is entertaining and realistic. She slips up occasionally and tweaks 5:2 when necessary. Some of the recipe ideas are really good.
She put a free downloadable list of the references as links on her website, so you don't have to type them all in yourself. Very thoughtful! See the5-2dietbook.

At $2.99 (Kindle-version) I decided to buy the book - am enjoying it but only part of the way through, will likely finish tonight. I like reading how others have managed to incorporate this WOE into their lives...
