(In my defense, there is always at least one ingredient that will be a lot of trouble (or flat out impossible) to find in Japan)
Also it gives far too many juice recipes which would quickly use up calories while not satisfying hunger.
I have yet to find a 5:2 recipe book that doesn't read like a repurposed low fat diet book. I doubt many successful 5:2 dieters are eating breakfast, lunch and dinner with snacks, but that is always what these cookbooks suggest.
The other big problem for me with the 5:2 cookbooks is that they ignore the challenge of finding a day's worth of food at low calorie levels that provides sufficient protein and other needed nutrients. Too much starch, too little veggies in the books I currently have.
I really would love a cookbook that gave me 450 calorie meals that provided 50 g of protein, sufficient vitamins, and made me feel like I'd eaten something. If anyone can recommend a cookbook like that, ideally with recipes that use products available in the US, I'd be very grateful. I'm really bored with my fast day food but have only found a few combos that prevent hunger and provide that protein that prevents burning lean muscle on fast days.
