The author proposes a system to help evaluate potential diets. 10 categories with up to 10 points each. It highlights for me why 5:2 is so doable.
- What sorts of "enjoyability" items could be scored?
Feelings of fullness/satisfaction
Need to cook special meals for other family members
Ability to still eat out with friends and family
Energy levels and feelings of general well-being
Complexity of dietary requirements
Dietary flexibility vs. monotony
Rigidity of dietary requirements (ie forbidden foods/food groups and impact on quality of life)
Expense/cost of dietary requirements (ie expensive foods, supplements, etc.)
