    Traditional diet lore dictates that we shouldn't skip meals. But amazing new findings show that short bursts of fasting, created by lengthening the gaps between eating, can lead to the ultimate fat-burning state - this is intermittent fasting (IF). It's a truth that body-builders and top athletes have known for years but scientists are now confirming that fasting accelerates fat loss and shifts weight from stubborn areas too. What's more, you'll find that you sleep better, have more energy, slow down your ageing and even improve your long-standing health problems through fine-tuning your body's repair mechanisms. Amanda Hamilton's Eat, Fast, Slim contains a choice of diet plans which allow you to tailor the diet according to your lifestyle and 'weight-loss personality'. You can choose Plan A, a daily fast of 16 hours (so you'll skip either dinner or breakfast), starting with once a week and working up to more frequent fasts. Or you can follow Plan B, a full day fast, twice a week, during which you'll eat one evening meal. But there's freedom in the plans so you can graze, rather than sitting down to main meals, and you can of course add an exercise element to your routine whilst fasting. On top of this, you can follow Plan C to enhance the fasts with juicing and other boosting techniques. Interspersed throughout the book, Amanda tells the story of how she found her way to IF, from her introduction to fasting on a meditation retreat in the Himalayas to her work with the system in her weight-loss clinic. She reveals the latest scientific findings that support the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of structured fasting, describes how the plans were created, and the results that the reader can expect. IF may pay homage to a practice that has been adopted by spiritual practitioners for thousands of years but it's never been more needed than right here, right now.

His eminently do-able versions of traditional recipes have won him thousands of fans throughout the world.

The first, Liberte, showcases exciting new recipes, methods and techniques, with innovative ingredients - such as Pineapple Tarte Tatin with Chilli and Lemongrass - all refreshingly free from the shackles of tradition. The second chapter, Egalite, brings democracy to your cooking by elevating such humble fare as celeriac, pork belly and rabbit into the food of kings - for example, Rabbit Terrine with Onions and Parsley. The final chapter, Fraternite, celebrates recognized "brotherhoods", or pairings, of ingredients and turns convention on its head with modern adaptations, such as Monkfish Wrapped in Pancetta with Carrot and Mandarin Puree. Throughout the book Daniel reveals how to make modern dishes with vibrant flavours, textures and aromas. In each chapter there are instructive features on the techniques used, such as water baths, showing you how to master them easily in your own home.
