Podcast 8: the couple who lost 57kg/9 stone between them

Podcast 8 is now available – and it’s great fun, as I interview a couple who’ve made 5:2 their joint mission – and between them, lost almost 9 stone (57 kilos) in weight…

Lizzie and Kevin Baker from Wiltshire in the UK featured in my first cookbook, The Ultimate 5:2 Recipe Book, where we called them Mr and Mrs 5:2.

They talk about how their rivalry has helped them stay on track, the health benefits of their new regime (including lower blood pressure, no more migraines and being able to keep up with their border collie), and how they still enjoy wonderful home country cooking on fast and normal days.
