All about Kate

3 things about me you might not know:

  1. I only started doing 5:2 after 30 years of battling with my weight - now, eight years on, I¡¯m still 30lbs/15kg lighter than I was before.

  2. I¡¯m an accidental diet guru - I only set up my 5:2 Diet group (which you can join here) to share tips with friends. It now has over 50,000 members¡­

  3. I started out as a fiction writer - and still love writing thrillers and epic love stories that have topped the chart.

You can sample all the 5:2 books electronically via Amazon - and buy them as e-books and paperbacks - if you live outside the UK, you can buy the 5:2 recipe books via the Book Depository which delivers worldwide.
