About Me
When I got back from holiday in August 2012 I knew it was time to lose some weight. A holiday diet of fish and chips and ice cream had left me feeling stodgy and jiggly in all the wrong places. I’d tried many diets before and never stuck to them. But as soon as I heard about the 5:2 diet I knew it was the diet for me. Diet only 2 days a week – what’s not to like? I can honestly say that I have never looked back.

As I started to get compliments about how well I was looking I told anyone who was interested about this great new diet and soon had several friends and family hooked as well. In fact I ended up talking to all sorts of people about the diet – men and women, young and old, this diet seems to work for everyone.

As an early convert I became a bit of an expert on the subject and was constantly answering questions about the diet and giving people recipe ideas. That’s when the idea for a book hit me.

As a keen amateur cook I’m always creating new recipes and trying them out on my long-suffering family. Other people on the diet were eating the same thing every single diet day and getting bored as a result. I was much more experimental but also found I still needed to write the ingredients down so I could count the calories.

My first book The 5:2 Diet Recipe Book (an Amazon top five best-seller) all came from ideas I came up with in my kitchen here in York. I now have  two more diet and recipe books published by HarperCollins.

I am continually trying out new recipes and cooking styles on the quest to find new ways to cut the calories without losing out on flavour. I try and add new recipes to my blog (www.52recipes.co.uk) every week.
