Fashionable Fasting

Michael Mosley: what a nice guy, and a nice wife, Clare, too. They both seemed overjoyed on Horizon last night when the results of Michael's minifasts came through.

Two days a week of a calory-restricted diet (5-600 calories = one meal) persuades the body to go into cell-repair mode. Fights cancer, increases brain cell growth, diminishes risks of cardiovascular disease .. and takes the pounds off. What's not to like?

I had a hearty breakfast this morning (cereals, skimmed milk) and it's green tea for the rest of the day. My weight today? 13st 8 or 86.2 kg.

We shall see.
