Geraldine has been on an intermittent fasting diet for the past three months.
The 'it' diet had been recommended by many friends and dieticians in the media as the easy, hassle free way to lose weight.
However, over summer, she'd had enough.
The biggest problem was that she wasn't losing weight. But new scientific studies have raised questions about the risks and impact on the body of this method of dieting.

And book recommendations after a summer of reading.
