Wondering if fasting is sustainable long-term? This week, Kate celebrated her sixth ‘fastiversary’ – six years since she tried fasting for the first time. In a deeply personal and heartfelt podcast, she pays tribute to her mum, explores why kindness and self-care matter in weight loss, and reveals the big secret she's been hiding... Me at the Harrogate Crime Festival - my secret life as a thriller author revealed!  It's my sixth fastiverary this month - 6 years since I started intermittent fasting. This month, my mum also died. My mum Barbara as an 18-year-old student nurse in 1959.   It's made me think about what we are here for, how to look after each other, and what we leave behind. In this very personal podcast, I explore why caring for yourself is the key to sustainable changes, why our governments need to do much more to support healthy eating, and how important it is to do what we can to stay happy and well - but why, ultimately, we can only do so much. Plus I want to tell you what I'm doing next - and share the secret many 5:2 folks have no idea about…      Tiny olives on the tree my mum bought as a house-warming gift seven years ago.     My secret....? Yes, my first thriller is available for pre-order here in the UK and here for international delivery. This is what it's all about... In her eyes, no-one is innocent... Georgia Sage has a gift: she can see evil in people. As a courtroom artist she uses her skills to help condemn those who commit terrible crimes. After all, her own brutal past means she knows innocence is even rarer than justice.  ut when she is drawn back into the trial that defined her career, a case of twisted family betrayal, she realises her own reckless pursuit of justice may have helped the guilty go free. As Georgia gets closer to the truth behind the Slater family, something happens that threatens not only her career - but even her own sanity. At first, she fears her guilt around the events of her terrible childhood is finally coming back to haunt her.The truth turns out to be even more terrifying . . .  Do you love reading fiction?

Today's podcast is all about you - we asked our Facebook group members for their questions about gut health, diet, 5:2 fasting and more.   We’re covering a great range of topics, including the ketogenic diet, how to bring the gut back to good health after surgery and medication, and the ideal timing for enjoying kefir and fruit.  We even look at the thorny topic of cellulite - with the answers supplied by Kate along with Helen Phadnis, our dirty diet registered dietitian and expert in all things food and health related. You can buy the polybiotic Vivomixx (a cheaper version of #VSL3) via Amazon or other stores. For an overview of ketogenic diets, read this balanced article.

On today’s podcast, we’re talking about one of the most common problems to affect the gut – and what we can do about it to make IBS less irritating… as a lifelong sufferer, Dirty Diet and 5:2 author Kate shares what she’s learned about calming a sensitive gut, while registered dietitian Helen Phadnis looks at medical and diet approaches to improving this common and distressing condition. We cover everything from low-FODMAP diets to peppermint tea (and the stronger version, oil capsules, which as Kate reports can have unexpected effects). We also chat about the mental connection to IBS and how to improve that without feeling responsible or even more stressed out. To find out more about low-FODMAP diets and find a trained dietitian, visit the King’s College site.    Helen offers consultations via her website, in person or online via video.    You can try yoga poses which may help with IBS. This is a user-friendly guide to research on the pros and cons of trying to improve IBS with probiotics.  Kate used Vivomixx (which is basically the same as #VSL 3 but a little cheaper) to help her IBS:  read more. https://amzn.to/2Am1sbC   You can buy The Dirty Diet book here for UK delivery.
