I've had contact from a publisher via Mimi Spencer who is in urgent need of some American testimonials as the media is apparently desperate for some real life examples/success stories.
Here's what she says they're in need of:
Short testimonials are ideal - and definitely some mention of just how much is different -- either weight-wise, or health-wise (or both, of course).
If the participants are willing to submit 'before and after' photos, that kind of material has been hugely useful... Obviously, if participants aren't comfortable, that's understandable.
So, short testimonials including how much weight you've lost in what timescale and any health improvements noticed/tested would be really useful. If you're happy/able to provide photos this would be helpful too, but not essential so please don't let this put you off getting involved. I've offered to be involved if they need me.
She has also mentioned that 5:2ers from the UK who've had success would also be really helpful for some upcoming projects. I don't have more info about these as present, but by expressing an interest you are not committed to anything, you'll just be contacted by the publisher with more information, at which point you can decide whether or not you wish to be involved.
I don't know if there will be any kind of incentive to be involved, besides the fact that you'll be helping to spread the wonder of 5:2 to more people and help change lives through it

It's annoying that people make assumptions before even researching about the WOE. Fasting has been around for hundreds of years, not even the cavemen into consideration! And this isn't even proper fasting anyway, I think the word "fast" scares people. I really don't see this as a "fad" diet and its frustrating that any old person can criticise before researching properly.
