Vive la Revolution! What’s inside: A game-changing formula A perfect planner for fasting and non-fasting days. You certainly won’t go hungry! The dishes in The Fast Revolution may be low in calories but they truly satisfy, with big flavour and lots of hearty goodness. They’re also super easy to adapt for non-fasting days — just follow the tips for doubling or tweaking the recipe to make it more substantial. Mix and match The meal choices are vast, and tailored for you with a top 100 recipe selection that allows you to build your fast days and non-fast days, block by block, using the mix-and-match guides. With a thumbnail picture shown of each recipe, these guides make planning your day and your week a cinch, whether you’re someone who plans ahead or on the run. Nutritional information on all recipes Each recipe comes complete with an inspirational full-page image, and loads of tips and information, including a full nutritional panel to help you track your protein, carbs and fats, and of course count calories which are big and bold throughout. Also included with each recipe are at-a-glance key guides to vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free recipes, as well as make-ahead options. Your Fast Revolution day Create your own 800-calorie day or follow our handy plans. Just think of each day in terms of three key building blocks: main meals, whether breakfast lunch or dinner (around 500 cals or less) light meals (around 250 cals or less) snacks (125 cals or less). This includes bites and quick snacks that need no preparation or cooking in an Easy Calorie Reckoner. Yes, snacks! They’re an essential part of the formula to keep you satisfied and on track with your weight loss goals. That’s because The Fast Revolution is all about real life, not denying life’s pleasures … like beer, wine and other treats that are so often on the ‘banned’ list for other diet plans. Whichever the plan, and whatever the recipes you choose for that day, it’s a given that they will be easy, nutritious, family-friendly, and super tasty. You seriously can’t go wrong.
