For my Australian followers who may be curious about the 5-2 Challenge that I have been blogging about. Michael Mosley’s excellent documentary Eat, Fast and Live Longer will be screening on SBS One at 8.30 pm this Monday night, 22nd April.
Here is how SBS describes this documentary in its program guide.
Michael Mosley has set himself a truly ambitious goal: he wants to live longer, stay younger and lose weight. And he thinks he’s found the answer – the ancient idea of fasting. Could the powerful new science behind this idea lead to a longer, healthier life? Mosley thinks he’s found a way of fasting that still allows him to enjoy his food. It sounds too good to be true. So he decides to take a road trip across the US to investigate how a little hunger can make you younger, and of course, to try out some of this new science for himself.
How apt. Monday happens to be one of my weekly fast days. I know I’ll be watching this with interest on the large screen. A very welcome distraction from thinking about what I might be eating the next day. Given that I now have over a month of my personal 5-2 Challenge under my belt I wonder if I will be watching with a different perspective? I’m hoping to absorb from this screening just a little more information to enhance my personal journey.
