Welcome to The Official Fast Diet and recently added Fast Exercise Forums. We hope you find these useful and informative. We are delighted by the response to our books on intermittent fasting and on exercise combining high intensity interval training (HIT). We have received so much positive feedback from people, telling us how much it has benefited them. The idea of intermittent fasting is that it is a lifestyle change more than simply a diet, so we expect it to generate a lot of questions.
Let us know how you are getting on with the diet and the exercises, what you have discovered, your top tips, recipes and anything you want to know or share. We have a well informed and supportive community who will encourage you on your way and throw in some of the latest research to keep you motivated. Good luck and we look forward to hearing from you.
