Six years ago, Dr. Michael Mosley started a health revolution with The 5.2 Fast Diet, telling the world about the incredible power of intermittent fasting. In this audiobook, he brings together all the latest science (including a new approach: time-restricted eating) to create an easy-to-follow programme. Recent studies have shown that 800 calories is the magic number when it comes to successful dieting - it’s an amount high enough to be manageable but low enough to speed weight loss and trigger a range of desirable metabolic changes.

In the time it took me to listen to this book - about a week - I’d lost 2kgs. Will listen to again and am loving this diet.

Meshel Laurie has had a very varied career, but whether she's working the front desk at a brothel or anchoring drive-time radio, it's always had one common thread: she is a self-confessed workaholic. Thankfully, over the years she's learnt to temper her tendencies with a bit of Buddhist perspective - and you can too! Meshel shares her own experiences with wit and wisdom and explores how to navigate the modern workplace (and stay sane).

Whether you're really busy, or just a little bit too busy; and, despite your views on Buddhism, this book is great. It's narrated by Meshel in a way that sounds assured, and gives plenty of food for thought about what you're doing with your time, and why you're doing it. Sometimes, I find case examples a little boring, but Meshel's examples were relevant and interesting. Meshel and I are the same age - I could really relate to the stories of her younger self in Australia. It's really helped me at a time when my work was spiralling out of control and intruding into my personal life too much, just by being constantly on my mind. It's helped me consider the value I inject into maintaining personal relationships and friendships, and made me really think about what I'm doing and what I'm doing it for. Thanks to Meshel for taking the time to share this book with us all, it's really been a lovely story of hers to tell, and had the impact I'm sure she was hoping it would.
