This cookbook contains all the Gluten-free menus you will need to follow the 5:2 Fast Diet. This is the 'diet' that lets you eat normally five days a week but on the other two you can only eat 500 calories if you are a woman and 600 calories if you are a man. It really is that simple.
Many dieters find it a problem finding things to eat on a fasting day and give up very quickly. You could simply buy low calorie ready meals, if you can find gluten-free one’s but they often contain ingredients that you know are bad for you as well as work out quite expensive over a longer period. It therefore makes a lot of sense to be able to cook something quick and simple and be able to freeze portions as well because you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen when you are trying to eat less.
This recipe book has over 95 gluten-free recipes that will make your fasting days a lot easier to cope with and even look forward to. They include quick breakfasts, easy lunches and some delicious dinners. The recipes are carefully put together with a balance of protein and carbohydrates and all ingredients are ready available and in many recipes, very economical. They will satisfy even the hungriest appetites on your two fasting days and they are not just smaller portions.

- Chicken & Chips
- Spinach & Mushroom Stew
- Curry Coated Chicken
- Toad in the Hole

Menus are set out in either 1, 2 or 4 portions depending on ingredients and are calorie grouped. It is a good idea to cook bigger batches and freeze the extra portions for your other fasting days. This saves you cooking meals on every fasting day which should make it easier to stick to it. Many recipes are suitable for freezing and these have been marked as such.
The ingredients are given in imperial and metric as well as US cups where applicable so should suit everyone.
The recipe index shows the calorie count so that you can go straight to a meal that is within your allowance, especially useful if you need to cut back on your evening meal. This index also makes it a lot easier to plan out your fasting day menus in advance.
So if you want some delicious gluten-free but low calorie meals that will help you to lose weight easily, give these recipes a try, you really will be delighted with the results.
